Other Worlds

Minetest mod which adds asteroid layers.

Each layer contains:

  1. Asteroids composed of unique materials.
  2. Decoration (or lack of) for the asteroid surfaces, including plants and glowing crystals.
  3. A skybox for the layer.

Default layers are Space and Red Sky, but anyone familiar with editing mods should be able to easily adjust these or create different/ additional layers.


Settings for this mod can be adjusted by editing Minetests Settings tab -> All settings.

See the comments in this file for how to adjust:

  1. The minimum and maximum height of each layer.
  2. Whether map-generation is currently active for individual layers.
  3. Whether player gravity changes for each layer (off by default).
  4. Whether crafting recipes are enabled.
  5. Set the chance of finding ores in asteroids (default is 27 [0 to 100]).

Note: It is advised to turn off map-generation after you have generated the required number of asteroids.

Do you recommend this mod?

  • SPACE!

    a very good space mode, would be nice to have a mod with some space mobs.

  • English

    Interesting, but need some features

    Really good mod, but it needs some features : 1) Adding suffocation when travelling into the biome. 2) Then it would need a space suit, and an air generator to breathe without suit into buildings. 3) Not suffocate when using a vehicule (I am working with somebody to add a spaceship). I don't know if it's possible.

    I say so because I am working about a RPG in my world, and it would be so perfect :)

    Thanks :)

    [PT-BR] Gosto bastante do seu Mod. Gostaria de solicitar que seja adicionado minerais comuns (ferro, cobre, prata, ouro, etc) na geração de mapa e também que seja adicionado outros minerais que de fato sao abundantes em asteroides, mas não são abundantes na terra (platina, irídio, etc)

    [EN] I really like your Mod. I would like to request that common minerals (iron, copper, silver, gold, etc.) be added to the map generation and also that other minerals be added that are in fact abundant on asteroids, but are not abundant on Earth (platinum, iridium, etc.)
