Do you recommend this mod?

  • Nice mod to play with algorithmically generated structures

    It seems to me that the “Run your first program” instructions must be done after the “Write your first program” instructions to avoid a crash.

    Note that several of the examples do not work if your world does not have the mods vector3 and worldedit.

    Why is this mod not available for Minetest 5.5+?
