190122. Final Minetest now supports both 2D and 3D torches by default. Not concurrently, but only a simple settings change is needed to choose one or the other.

Our controversial philosophy is that the concerns of creators related to compatibility and options do matter.

190120. This little structure would take 10 minutes to do in Old Minetest using the buggy More Blocks that doesn't support auto-orientation. Total time required in Final Minetest, which does offer the feature: 1 minute.

The public beta is coming in the next 8 days.

190106. Whale of an announcement: Final Minetest is expected to be released this month before Old Minetest 5 comes out.

Read the docs at the time. Final MT doesn't break your worlds. It's faster and adds major WorldEdit features, bug fixes, and a superior standard game.

190106. Final Minetest now supports a per-world settings file named “world.conf”. This solves a major problem in stand-alone mode. It's not clear why Old Minetest didn't have this years ago. Our suggestion is to add the feature.

181017. Progress on Final Minetest. Fixed a schem load bug and a long-standing //set air lighting problem. This moribund gamedev project can be revived with the right fixes and has superior edutech potential as well. Screenshot below illustrates the schem load bug fix.

180826. I visited my Minetest gamedev world SkyDoom yesterday at the request of somebody who'd misplaced their house. I found the house and these happy creatures in the backyard.

Backyard in the clouds
Everything is alloweds
Creative is good
Monsters in the hood
My life is a test
