Minetest 5.6 and below

How do I install this?

It's a crosshair. It should work on mobile. Hopefully obsolete by 5.7.0.

Always enabled in singleplayer. If you don't want it, don't enable the mod. Toggled with /crosshair otherwise.



Do you recommend this mod?

  • I'm sorry, what?

    When I first saw this mod I thought it looked too good to be true! A mod implementation of a mobile crosshair? Finally, something to tide people over when the Android crosshair PR did not get merged for 5.6!

    Except... Not really, because of course a mod cannot provide such an engine feature. What it really does is provide the illusion of a crosshair, but that goes away whenever you try to e.g. break or place a node, because it will not do that at the crosshair's position (like it should) but at the finger's position as usually. It doesn't allow for free camera movement either, freezing your camera as usual.

    I would call this mod bullshit (akin to smearing vaseline on your screen for free bloom shaders) but someone apparently still found it useful, so I guess I must be missing something. Still though, I'll stick to playing on a fork with the crosshair PR cherry-picked and hope it gets merged in 5.7 proper.

  • finally

    finally a crosshair for us... i wonder how much work have been put in this to do what everyone failed to do and add us a + in the middle...

    mods with shooting should add this though as an old android user i already know where to shoot but it will be helpful for new players

    it would have been good if this were a setting in minetest so that you can enable or disable it anywhere in any server.
