  • Added new way to install texture packs: Put all texture files in textures/all/, without subfolders
  • Support placing a minetest game inside $world/game for easy creation of custom adventure maps
  • Optimized leaf decay
  • Modding API additions:
    - PerlinNoise
    - EnvRef:find_node_near(pos, radius, nodenames)
    - EnvRef:find_nodes_in_area(minp, maxp, nodenames)
    - minetest.get_node_group(name, group)
    - Allow looping of local and positional sounds
  • Fixed sound direction
  • A lot of smaller improvements and fixes
cisoun's house on fire

Oh my gawd, what did I do?!

Tip of the day: When using 0.4, you can open any world from any place by opening the world.mt file in the world’s directory, and selecting minetest.exe for opening it.

    How u get fire???

  7. Troy6879 Says:

    Hard to get Iron and other stuff on this one because there’s no fly or free move.(Sure you can still enable it but it says “Free move activated(Note:No fly ability)

  8. celeron55 Says:

    Troy6879: Type “/grant singleplayer all” in chat to get them in the singleplayer mode. Altough you could just /giveme them in the first place, or play creative mode…

  9. Troy6879 Says:

  47. ZeroApoc Says:

    Considering that this game is the “free version of that other game”, sort of, I will never complain. I am just happy that is out here. I can’t wait until there are dungeons and monsters and animals. I wish some people would stop being rude to celeron55. It’s not like he is making money on this. So I am sure he has more important things to do most times Did I say I am very glad to be able to play this? I like the fact that I can play this without an install. I have it on a thumb drive. It’s nice to be able to play it where ever I want to. Keep up the good work Mr. Celeron55. :o)

  48. Jack Says:

    Will not load!!!

  49. TWK_General Says:

    It says missing folder and refuses to download, but I, being a Major U.S. General, appreciate your help to make such an addicting game free. I played Minecraft every day when I was on break not in a war and at home, by myself. But weeks ago, my PC stopped working and I never remembered my account password, and i didn’t want to buy another account, so this is all I’ve got.
