Re: [Mod] Minecraft Monster (Yeah a annother Mobs mod )

I'm not sure if you can claim both copyright and cc by-sa 3.0 This statement doesn't make any sense. CC BY-SA gives you a right to do something you otherwise wouldn't have because of copyright. A license only has any effect if you have copyright, because you are already allowed to do whatever you w...

Re: [Mod] Crafting [2.0.1] [crafting]

You can't name a modpack the same thing as a mod inside it. (Or at lest, you couldn't last time I tried it.)

Re: how do i make a server public???

1. Forward the port you're using. Google "port forwarding".
2. To make it appear in the server list, check the "public" checkbox.

Re: What's Minetest still missing over Minecraft?

About unpolishness, even before getting to the menu, there is the title of the engine itself : Mine TEST . First when I heard about the project, I tought it was just a small experiment (like the python version of minecraft) because of the name. Was it a "test" for something? Maybe changin...

Re: Some serious questions from a MC server owner

IP bans are probably one of the dumbest ideas ever implemented on the Internet. IP addresses rotate all the time for most people, and evading an IP ban is as easy as finding a proxy: a neighbor, a library, an Internet cafe, or even Tor. What IP bans end up doing is causing massive collateral damage,...

Re: Some serious questions from a MC server owner

On the topic of performance: the client adjusts how much stuff is rendered to try to achieve a target frame rate which is 30 by default, I believe, so there can be an illusion of the game having lower performance than it really does on fast computers. My old laptop from 2007, which has an Intel Cele...

Re: Administration abuse

And i think, a higher authority should be there to protect the players from this kind of situation... (specifically on public servers) That's not possible. Anyone can run a public server. All that the Minetest devs could do is set a policy about how you're allowed to run servers listed on the serve...

Re: Modding section

Apparently it's down now, so I can't check. But last time I did, MMDB allowed proprietary licenses. I think this is a bad policy. It makes recommending Minetest problematic for those of us who advocate free/libre software, because while Minetest itself might be libre, it would be happy to recommend ...

Re: I'm stuck in a hole

If you can't dig your way out, use the /teleport command in the chat, e.g.

Your phone or window isn't wide enough to display the code box. If it's a phone, try rotating it to landscape mode.
Code: Select all
/teleport 0 10 0


The arguments are your x, y, and z coordinates.

Re: Garry's Mod proves Minetest must be on Steam

From my understanding the core developers have mostly abandoned new development on Naev. That is not the case for Minetest. Also what is the state of the Naev modding community? It's a wrong understanding, but how can this matter? It doesn't follow that an existing modding community would cause a c...

If Minetest were on steam, it would have a huge leg up on Minecraft. Millions of people would download it and start contributing Mods and ideas on a scale that Minetest will never see if it doesn't go on steam. You're too optimistic. In the real world, very few if any projects attract "million...

Re: Add brainfuck for modding

Writing software in Brainfuck wouldn't be "obfuscation". Obfuscation is where you write code one way, but then only distribute a modified form that's harder to read and modify. If you write a program in Brainfuck, it's just unreadable because of a bad programming practice (using Brainfuck)...
