The Lower Road (a Minetest Mod)

Adds a long road from -Z to +Z to the world, during world-generation.

The road partially follows the terrain and tunnels through higher ground otherwise.

The road materials depend on the environment.

Small amounts of loot can be found in little buildings beside the road.

Per default the road will be generated at around x = 100.

Not compatible with singlenode unless you provide at least a heightmap in the corresponding lua-mapgenerator, see for an example on how to provide heightmap and heatmap properly.


Unzip the archive, (optionally rename the folder to thelowerroad) and place it in minetest/mods/

Activate this mod when generating a new world. The road is generated during world-generation, so activating it on already existing worlds might not generate one.

Check the advanced configuration-section of Minetest to change the configurable parameters.

    I just keep walking down the road. Always more to see! Worked perfectly for me.
