Well default controls, wasd to move, right click to place a block, left click to dig, space to jump, i to open inventory. Also, you can see your coordinates by pressing f5 and you can take a screenshot by pressing f12.

Welcome! Just a heads up. If you do play on servers. Most of them do not allow griefing. Griefing (if you don't know what it is) is ruining someone elses work. Soo say you join a server, someone has built a house, and you just start breaking apart the blocks. In my opinion the best servers are: Redcrabs 0.4.4 (NO Griefing), VanessaE's server (no Griefing), And also some of OldCoder's servers. If you don't know how to join a server. This is how you do it. Open up minetest program. Go to multiplayer tab. There will be a few slots which you have to fill in. The First one is the "Name" You enter your name in there. Second is Password, you enter a password you will remember into it, you will use it when you log onto any server. Third is the "Address" which you can find at the servers page here in the minetest forums under the "Servers" page. The server page will also list the "Port" you must enter. Then you just enter the game, most servers you must request privs on there minetest page. e.g. Hi my name is MEGASPARK, can I have privs please? Once you're granted privs you're allowed to dig blocks, build, mine etc. Being granted privs usually takes a day or 2. And some servers grant you privs automatically. Also most servers do not allow killing other players, unless the other player agrees to fight you, this style of play is called PvP. There is also a minetest IRC, heres the link to it: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=minetest just enter your name and the Captcha to enter, usually there are helpful people there :), like VanessaE, redcrab, celeron55 (the creator of minetest). And a lot of other helpful people. Feel free to ask any questions! And Happy building :) Also griefers get banned.

Sorry for bad grammar, and mispelled words!

Some of oldcoders servers are: Address: minetest.org And the port is: 30000 another one Address minetest.org Port: 30001

You can find OldCoder on IRC, he usually hardly comes onto the forums. He has about 18-20 dedicated servers :-) (24/7 servers)

I would have to say that adding something to a building is griefing if and only if what you're doing changes the intent, structure, or overall appearance of the building.

If all you're doing is adding a few blocks to fill in a hole the original builder obviously missed, or if you're repairing damage from a real griefer, you're not griefing at all - you're helping.

We are all taught that these kinds of actions (in a general sense) are to be favored, so there's no reason to "change the rules" just because this is a video game.

This type of game is supposed to be about collaborative building as much as anything else, and helping someone build their structure or make repairs should be seen as such.

Now, taking stuff from a building probably is griefing in almost any case, unless you're clearing out wild plants you know the builder didn't place, or say pruning an ABM-spawned tree that grew into someone's structure.

As a good rule of thumb, if it's not built by you, don't touch it. If you do break it by accident, repair the damage. And of course, be very, VERY careful whenever you play around or with lava. I'm sure you won't like to see your precious castle ruined by someone else, so don't do it to others.

If you're looking for other things, there are also dedicated PvP and griefing servers (a.k.a free for all). In those servers, you basically do a simple fort/house and defend it to death.

Choosing the server to play on depends on your taste. For example, I like to play mostly on pacific servers (i.e: no-pvp and no-griefing).

Also, if you see a "griefer" in a no-griefing server, you should report it to the server admin so he can take the necessary actions to prevent this (they may issue a warning or even ban the player in question).

If you are unsure, ask the server admin or some regular user about the rules of the server.

Have fun!

Start playing in singleplayer for a bit, get used to crafting and also use different texture packs and mods, Which is what I did, and in a few days time, you'll be as good a builder as anyone else - Possibly better. And also, Welcome!

Is suggesting the Offtopic Section and getting it added an achievement? I guess it is!
