I think we've all been aware of the board's catatonic state in the recent months, so to rekindle some interest some anons and I thought it would be a cool idea to create an official /lv/ Minetest server. Once I or whoever's hosting gets the server up you will find the IP below. Look forward to playing with you guys. While I set the server up, discuss whether you guys want the old map from the old server or a brand new fresh map.

I'm all for it, but it'd be nice if it wasn't just another standard Minetest server. First of all, make sure you use LuaJIT and PostgreSQL as the database backend if you can, makes it orders of magnitude faster than just plain ole SQLite and standard Lua. I think theres Redis and some other crap, but PostgreSQL should be the fastest. Theres also a config variable that I forget the name of for hiding player names based on distance, if you want a more competitive server.

For mods, I like Voxelgarden (a "game" for Minetest) since the player physics/ingame physics has been changed to something more enjoyable, theres modular doors, farming has changed to something more difficult, and theres nice simple biomes and mapgen. Main thing it would need is a custom tech mod or something since its incompatible with moreblocks and therefore technic, and it lacks diamonds and gold on purpose among other things so that breaks some mods a bit. The carpathian map generator from the dev version is pretty nice too, goes ok with the volcanoes from magma conduits. This is just what I like, wander around on the forums or the ContentDB thing that got set up not too long ago to find more mods. See 1st image for a rough list of what I use.

For mobs the best thing you can do right now is mobs_redo with its monster mod and the hard mobs mod which just does some simple mob scaling farther from the origin. Rest are ridiculous or unstable: i.e. world destroying self replicating doomsday devices (self organizing systems) or laggy weird AliveAI bots that can't be hurt by lava.

Right now some modders are probably waiting for the 5.0.0 stable version to finally come out to start working on crap again since it makes breaking network changes (meaning 0.4 clients cannot connect to 5.0.0 servers) and so on, maybe we'll see more interest in Minetest then. The first release candidate is already out so hopefully it won't be too long, you can find that here: https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=22078

ChaosEsque Anthology (Xonotic mod/fork/etc/standalone)

Release 55:
This update has been a polishing update, with a new feature aswell:
Oil ocean mutator: you can now set oil level, if near the vapour level of
the oil, enflamed things will spread fire on the oil. The rate is settable
by cvar, currently set to a global max of 10 spreads per second, a per-entity
think interval of 2 seconds, and a 30 percent chance of deciding to spread
per think interval (0.1, 2, 0.3);

Bugfixes for mines: A bug that has been in xonotic for along time (since
it had mines) has been defeated. The bug was that if a mine was following
(ie attached to a vehicle or mover etc) something and that something dissappeared
the mine would then unfollow it and just stay static. Now for map movers of

Ayyo. Before you make a big mistake in choosing a project or sum shit you gotta be feeling the ways of the both the people. You feel me?

M'fcking Xonotic and dis bullshit is diffrens.

Xonotic devs deeply respect women and their rights and privileges.

Dis Bullshit devs hate women's rights and have been harranging FLOSS femininists fo like a decade. (Citation: http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/MikeeUSA )

Xonotic Developers contribute to society by working real jobs.

Dis Bullshit is a pack of fucking NEETs who say dey ain't workin fo no enemy.

Xonotic Programmers are attracted to real Women.

Dis BULLSHIT faggots want to take little girls as brides.

Xonotic Men respect and uphold modern ethical understandings and beliefs.

DIS BULLSHIT NEET FUCKS worship the war god of the jews and cite "deuteronomy" as reason why raping young female children into marraige is "awwwite" (Example: "Deuteronomy 22, 28-29,hebrew, see na'ar, tahpas bla bla bla bla" – These words are all spam-filtered on soylentnews.org for a reason)

Xonotic Paragons have a correct work:life:hobby balance and deeply love real women.

Dis_Bullshit neet faggots do not work, do not life, they just program the videogame and make maps for it. They hate women and like little girls (and we all know that little girls are basically boys).

Choose wisely for you will be judged by the company you keep.

If you want to get fired from your job: fine: shack up with mikeeeusa and the faggot neets of Dis Bullshit and their mountain of shit. You know: if you like pedophiles and guns so much.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


Thoughts on gaming?



How paranoid are you? This is some serious level of paranoia.



Which do you choose?

Xonotic / ChaosEsque?


Modeled and added a new weapon: Ithaca Stakeout Shotgun

An open source re-implementation of Caesar III: https://github.com/bvschaik/julius





I've tried playing this thing before. The implementation is great but them game itself is pretty crappy IMHO. Seemed much too confusing. I ditched it and played Widelands instead.

Are there any libre Worms clones? The youtube video embedded in this post is a clone called "Wormux" (Later renamed to Warmux), but the project site doesn't seem to still exist anymore, so I have to assume it's dead.

Anyone know of anything else?

Yeah,hedgewars is a copypasta of worms, sure… Wait, what, it has completely different code. But it still has such unique weapons as a bazooka and grenade, that you can throw, and explosions that effect the environment, clearly this game (and worms) are breaking gods copyright. I mean, Outside© has some of these things.

Let's be honest, current game choices are utter crap.

I believe we could collectively, through a Git, develop something new but old-fashioned, possibly interesting enough to be actually played.

I'm aware this place is nearly dead, but /tech/ is fairly frequented, and once something is online, can attract interest…

10 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


What we need is something new. Something similar do daggerfall or morrowind excluding some of the more retarded mechanics Something that can be autistic enough for /tech/ and the like to get behind, but plebeian enough for normal fags to wan to stream on twitch and shit. Something that offers countless hours of unique probably randomly generated content.

Look at minecraft, it's autistic enough for people to basically build a working computer out of redstone, but basic enough that pewdiepie can throw rocks at a zombie and scream like an idiot.

It was the same with morrowind, you COULD get super into alchemy and enchanting and stuff… or you could just slap mudcrabs with a stick.



Honestly OP, I'm up for it. I can do something cool with Godot and LMMS, I only would need someone to do the graphical part.


Could try to add networking to this game called MARS shooter (https://github.com/thelaui/M.A.R.S.) which was seemingly abandoned abruptly (its GPLv3). It works okay, has really unique and nice graphics, but networking was never created for it. I think that maybe adding networking and redoing the code to use smart pointers (mainly because it has a bunch of leaks and stuff and also has a bunch of places where it wrongly frees pointers that can cause crashes later) would be nice. I've fixed most of the pointer stuff, I know some people hate C++ smart pointers, but, if a games going to be in C++ its better to use them so you dont end up with issues like that. (The games code is really pretty ugly, especially how hard to modify most everything is. As in, it uses derived classes a bunch, but because the way its written you would have to go insert stuff in probably 10 files to add one weapon.)


I've been planning to dev a game that can be played through browsers so it is console independant & immediately patchable, and includes machine learning in the backend for functions including dynamic generation of content and management of NPCs, wildlife, natural resources, etc. the focus would be on actual gameplay elements, not graphics resolution. interest?



Honestly why a browser though? You can write perfectly portable C (or whatever other compiled language) code that doesnt require a massive backend to run. If you want to do it in JS drop the browser and use JS with a graphics lib out of browser. A browser is just dead weight for a game, especially libre ones. Also, how does a browser make it more patchable. I like the idea, just dont get why you would use a browser.

How about we play some minetest together?

What is it?

Minetest is a lot like classic Minecraft. No creeps or redstone, but still loads of fun.

Get the game here, and jump in on the fun:


We're looking for a host, so anyone who can host a server will be greatly appreciated.

I've had a Minetest server up for a while. It probably won't go down any time soon since it's hosted on the same server as my main website.

Anyway, the webpage for it is https://play.termer.net/

You can connect to it using the address play.termer.net. It's also on the serverlist, just search "termer".

If anyone has any suggestions for mods, I'll be happy to install them (as long as they aren't ridiculous).



It's fixed now, thanks to the admin. I don't see many on here though, is it worth posting on 4chan?



only if you're going to post your own minetest thread

Any of you play this game? Arguably the best roguelike I have ever encountered. You can download it as "crawl-tiles" from a lot of packages and it's excellent.

1 post omitted. Click reply to view.



It has a terminal based ASCII version as just "crawl" in most repos if you want to try it out. Different game from nethack though they probably share similarities.



It's a skin of rogue. Hence the term roguelike.

I used to play it a lot, won around a dozen times, then got burnt out on it. The combat and god systems are one of the best I have ever played in any game, let alone roguelikes. The bad thing about it are the devs (Named "Devil's Team" on /rlg/) keep removing stuff from the game to keep it streamlined. It also lacks ambiance. There's barely any lore.


I picked DCSS back up recently and finally got my first win (MiBe, but still). I'm making an effort to really improve my playing. Hoping to be a decent player over the course of the next few months.

Do you guys play on the desktop or web tiles versions?


idek wtf this is, but found roguelike source code on github and was planning to mess with mixing machine learning into it's backend.

obviously lore matters, what else is important for a game like this? what have roguelike games not had that you would like to see in one?

>when you learn that the author of osu! is also the author of puush

>when you've been using puush for years


there are various open source bms players now



stepmania fork intended for keyboard players; i believe the calculator is propietary, can be removed


osu is going open source now too




osu-laser is opensource, the stable client is still proprietary.

Osu-laser is also made in C# so it's only really useable with mono and even then, it's not the best client.

The code lacks a lot of features and it hasn't been worked on for quite awhile.

The first release of OpenLoco is out:



How does it compare to OpenTTD?



looks very similar to the mobile port of transport tycoon



Which wasn't really a port of Transport Tycoon at all, they ported Chris Sawyer's Locomotion and slapped the Transport Tycoon name on it.
