Do you recommend this game?

  • the best freely available Mtg-based experience

    This game is what those who play minetest game with disappointment actually want. it has a focus on exploring tons of unique areas throughout the world, most of which come with unique challenges in the form of mobs, hostile environments, and some unique dangers thrown in. It has a nice balance between stat watching for survival and leaving time to explore. if someone wants a good minetestgame-based game to host on a server, this should be their go-to.

  • I agree with the description!

    It is the best game! The mobs are meaningfully challenging and the progression is rewarding. There are interesting settings to find and explore.

    However, I don't see a tutorial or a user manual or documentation, so there are some things you should know before you start:

    Thirst. You will become thirsty in this game. You can refill your hydration by standing still in water. Craft a canteen as soon as possible!

    Pine trees. You can't make charcoal with pine trees, so if you start in a pine forest, look for another biome ASAP.

    Torches burn out. You can re-light them by using flint and steel on them. This incentivizes making jack-o-lanterns early, but it's a big change to not be able to use torches to make permanent markers or make a cave permanently safe. Be aware!

    When I figure out why my crops aren't growing, I'll update this review with that helpful hint as well. I'm sure it's something simple I'm doing wrong, but the soil is watered and there is sufficient light... EDIT: The crops aren't growing because the Mesecons conf file sets the farming stage time to 1 hr 40 min (6000 seconds) for some reason. The forum says that this works well on a server, but I'm playing single player so the crops just never grow. Recommendation: If you are playing single player, decrease the farming_stage_length variable in games/mesecraft/minetest.conf.

    This may be a spoiler if there's an in-game explanation, but I haven't found one yet: Nether portals are ignited with Mese crystals, not flint and steel.

  • The Best Game

  • From a years-long dedicated Minecrafter, up until the last few years

    So much of what a Minecrafter would hope on to be added/improved on in their game, is here on MeseCraft. MeseCraft has surpassed Minecraft in ALL the important parts of a blocky-survival game. With many details having a purpose.

    • Is and a continued improvement of having a good amount of both being a hard survival challenge, to still being fun.
    • A good balance for both players wanting tech and fantasy/magic. That is carefully decided on what would be fitting and not be feeling like "a mod just throw in" the game.
    • A thought out balanced distance of biomes both underground and aboveground. Having a planetary system and various underground biomes that are unique from each other with different levels of challenge, mystery, and puzzles to solve.
  • Not easy, but I like it that way!

    This is the best game in Minetest, hands down. It's true, the mobs are out to kill you. Hello friendly kangaroo, ooh, not so friendly are you? There is no teleportation. Get used to hiking everywhere and exploring the vast world. Find a volcano or a giant tree or a city in the floating mountains. Offline this game is great, but the online community makes this game the best. The markets allows player to player trading. The admin is active and the forum has a lot of useful info also. 5/5 stars!
