Final Minetest downloads
Two important notes:
1. These downloads are mostly for CLI developers and power users who know what they're doing. Some teenagers will be able to do the software builds but mostly the Linux types who are learning to be CLI developers.
2. These downloads are mostly for Final Minetest.
Some parts will work with other Minetests. For example, we'll provide sources for different MT clients that should be able to talk to both MultiCraft 2 and Trolltest. But in general you'll need to build and run a Final Minetest server to make full use of these files.
Download WoofWorld full world
WoofWorld is a small but complete Final Minetest world based on a unique modset named MeseLite. To go to the download page for WoofWorld, use the following link:

MultiCraft 2 Android and Apple clients
To connect to Final Minetest worlds using Android or Apple mobile devices or Mac PCs, you can try MultiCraft 2 clients. These are third-party programs. As of mid-2022, the associated Play Store links were as follows:
Final Minetest doesn't distribute or support these programs. There is no guarantee that they're still available, that they still work, or that they're safe to use.
Old Trolltest Android client
If you have an old Android device from around 2016 to 2018, the APK linked below may let you connect to Final Minetest worlds and old Minetest 4 worlds:
Link: minetest-0.4.16.apk 13MB
This is an Android Trolltest client from mid-2017. It isn't recommended that this APK be used on recent devices. Warning: There is no guarantee that this APK will work on any devices or is safe to use.
Windows Minetest binaries
We're working on a new Windows Minetest binaries package and will post it here when it's ready.
The Windows package will include either one or two different Minetest client programs as well as a few built-in worlds. The clients will support both online access and offline worlds.
Linux Minetest binaries
In the past, Final Minetest provided a single Debian binaries package that supported 2 or 3 releases of Debian. The plan is to replace that with separate binary packages for multiple flavors of Debian, Red Hat, and Ubuntu.
This section will be updated in due course.
Final Minetest source packages
9,000 Minetest git packages
You can browse and/or download 9,000 Minetest git repos at the following link:
These are general Minetest repos as opposed to Final Minetest repos.
Much of the content is obsolete or incompatible with modern Minetest worlds. However, these repos are an excellent source of ideas, code fragments, and textures that you can use in your own mods.
Additionally, the link above is the only place that you'll find some of the repos. The git site has preserved content that is lost forever elsewhere.
Note: The Final Minetest git site is believed to have copies of all of the mods that were in the Trolltest Content DB as of Christmas 2021. Even the mods that didn't have git repos at the time.
