Minetest server stress test!


We want to see how Minetest performs as a mini-MMO platform. We set up a server solely for the purpose of stress-testing the latest version of the vanilla Minetest server.

We need as many players as we can get. We’re aiming to reach 100 during the next few days. Call all your friends and neighbors!


UTC 19:30 Update: The server got roughly 15 simultaneous players during the initial two hours. The player number currently is roughly 7, and we are now seeing if the server will gain more less hasty users in a longer timespan.

Upcoming Tue 19th UTC 17:00: The “cram everybody in” minute!

How to join?

A Windows build of the very latest 0.4 (which works with this) can be found at:

Linux users should read the readme and build a version from github.

Connect to minetest.ru:30001 (that is, address minetest.ru, port 30001)

Check out the chests at the spawn, build something and hang around. Check out the main site, the forum and the wiki too.

Less important stuff:

Stairs in Minetest.

Stairs in Minetest!

You may be interested in the fact that the version this server uses now has stair and slab blocks included. It does not contain any additional mods though.

The server will be up for at least many hours from now, probably for a few days.

The collected data will be used for purposes of optimization and general knowledge.

The world might be transferred on a more persistent server if it gains lots of interesting buildings.
