How do I install this?


Configurable and easy-to use sprinting mod that supports hudbars and hbhunger. Designed after hbsprint by Tacotexmex.
hbsprint is great, however there's a few bugs, so I decided to write my own "vision" of this mod.



  • Minetest 5.0.0 (Wasn't tested on previous versions but might work)
  • player_monoids
  • hudbars (optional, but strongly recommended. You won't have a hud indicator without it)
  • hbhunger (optional)

How to use

Hold "special" key to sprint (by default it's assigned to E).
While sprinting, your stamina will decrease, until it hits 0 and you'll no longer be able to sprint.
If your stamina is lower than a threshold (specified in settingtypes), then you can't start sprinting.


Mod can be configured by changing settings in Settings->All Settings->Mods->sprint_lite, or by putting them directly to your minetest.conf:

sprint_lite_max_stamina = 20
Maximum stamina of every player

sprint_lite_speed_multiplier = 1.75
Speed multiplier when sprinting

sprint_lite_jump_multiplier = 1.25
Jump multiplier when sprinting

sprint_lite_step_interval = 0.15
Server step interval in seconds, when performing sprint-related checks

sprint_lite_drain_hunger = true
Sprinting drains hunger, if hbhunger is installed

sprint_lite_hunger_amount = 0.03
Amount of hunger to drain per step

sprint_lite_stamina_drain = 0.5
Amount of stamina to drain per step

sprint_lite_stamina_regen = 0.1
Amount of stamina to regenerate per step, when not running

sprint_lite_stamina_threshold = 8
Amount of stamina below which you can't start running

sprint_lite_spawn_particles = true
Spawn particles under sprinting players

sprint_lite_require_ground = false
Require ground to run

Integration with other mods

Mod provides two public functions:

sprint_lite.set_stamina(name, amount, add)
name - string, name of the player
amount - float, amount of stamina to add/set (can be negative if "add" is true, can't be otherwise)
add - bool, should "amount" be added or set

function returns new stamina amount of the player, returns false if failed to set stamina

name - string, name of the player

function returns amount of stamina of the player, returns false if failed

Do you recommend this mod?

  • Really good sprint mod

    It is so boring walking at normal speed to a place 50+ blocks away (even worse when travelling). So this sprint mod adds a very useful feature, and it's integration with HUD Bars makes it sit nicely. I like how the stamina regenerates, and how sprinting affects satiation (hunger). I don't see any reason to not use this mod, unless you're using a different sprint mod - but this one is my favourite, and (for me) the only one that works reliably.
