[ATTACH]

Minetest is inspired by the game Minecraft but unlike the latter , it is developed in C + +. It currently has two modes:

  • Survival: with a inventory and the possibility of building .
  • Creative: all with unlimited blocks

Note that the package also included a server version.

Installation

Download

With this package in the repositories, nothing more simple:

   1 aptitude install minetest

Compilig sources

Because it is a game in constant development, the version in the repository will not be the last. But fortunately it is possible to get the latest sources and to compile .

  • Start by installing the dependencies : { { { #! highlight bash

aptitude install build-essential cmake libbz2 -dev libirrlicht -dev libpng12 -dev libjpeg8 libxxf86vm -dev libgl1 -mesa -dev -dev libsqlite3 -dev

  • } } }
  • Get the latest archive: { { { #! highlight bash

wget https: github.com/celeron55/minetest/tarball/master -O master.tar.gz tar xf master.tar.gz rm- f master.tar.gz celeron55 - cd - minetest *

  • } } }
  • Compiler: { { { #! highlight bash

cmake . = 1 - DRUN_IN_PLACE make- j2

  • } } }
  • Launch the game : { { { #! highlight bash

cd bin . / minetest

  • } } }

For problems or more compiler options , see [ [ https: github.com/celeron55/minetest/blob/master/README.txt | readme .]]

Client

To start the game, just run Applications / Games / Minetest (Gnome ) or run : { { { #! highlight bash minetest } } }

Configuration

The location of the configuration files is ~ /. Minetest ( created at first start the game).

The configuration file contains minetest.conf preferences player ( key , name, server address, ...) , it is possible to change these settings in the file or directly from the game

More details on the page dédiée du wiki.

Customization

At the moment there are only textures customizable. We can find the forum officiel. To apply a new texture, you must modify the configuration file and add the following variable:

   1 texture_path = /chemin/absolu/répertoire/texture

Server

So Minetest also offers a server version to experience the immense number of cards . To start , run in a shell:

   1 minetestserver

For a web server , it is necessary that the specified port (30000 by default UDP ) is open on the internet box/gateway.

Privileges

The file ~/.minetest/world/auth.txt to define the privileges that have each player.

List of privileges:

  • Build - build / dig
  • Teleport - allow command / # teleport to teleport
  • Settime - authorize the / # time to set the time
  • Privs - Allow orders / # and grant / revoke # to add and remove privileges
  • Shout - to talk with other players.

The file looks like this: <file bash> test::build,shout NOM_DU_JOUEUR:MOT_DE_PASSE_HASHÉ:LISTE_DES_PRIVILÈGES }}}

The file auth.txt is frequently written by the server and also during shutdown . It is better to edit when the server is down or use the commands /#large and /#revoke privileges to change players.

It is also possible to define the default privileges by modifying the configuration file with the parameter:

   1 default_privs = build, shout

Comands

The possible in-game commands are:

  • /#status - Get the status of the server: roster, message of the day.

  • /#privs - View privileges.

  • /#privs <player> - See privileges 'player' . Requires privilege 'privs'.

  • /#grant <player> <priv> - Leave a privilege to 'player'. Requires privilege 'privs'.

  • /#revoke <player> <priv> - Remove a privilege to 'player'. Requires privilege 'privs'.

  • /#time <time> - Set the time of day. 0 and 24000 correspond to midnight, 12000 and 5000 at noon at dawn. (time * 1000 ) . Requires privilege 'time'.

  • /#shutdown - Turn off the server.

  • /#setting <name> = <value> - Adds or replaces a parameter in the configuration file. The parameter can not be applied properly before restarting the server.

  • /#teleport <x>,<y>,<z> - Teleport to the indicated position.Requires privilege ' teleport '.

Game

Given the current video game right now , it's pretty easy to compare Minetest Minecraft . Without going into details (which are available on the wiki / blog / forum Minetest ) , we can try to include the advantages and disadvantages of current Minetest :

  • Benefits:
    • GPL V2 License
    • C + + language
    • Literally huge Map
    • Multi -platform
  • Cons:
    • Community fairly small (for now !)
    • No sound yet
