Trains are the best form of public transport, and bringing them to Minetest is brilliant. This mod offers realistic railways, with high-level automation APIs and cargo possibilities.
All the other transport mods have nothin on Advtrains, and can only offer little of what Advtrains offers.
I have used it to connect my server. I can sit and watch trains pass at high speed or board a train and get somewhere in style. Whilst teleportation is more convinient, it does not help with cargo transport, one thing that Advtrains handles amazingly.
Overall, this mod is very good for making good transport systems whilst keeping realisim high on the agenda.
This mod contributes heavily to the infrastructure of any Minetest server. It allows paths to cross across the server, perfect for walking. These can be integrated into infrastructure quite naturally, and offer good possibilities when looking for a place to settle, upkempt paths crossing unloaded mapblocks.
I have personally integrated them with my server's infrastructure and have protected them from harm.
I have used this mod and am fast approaching my 1e5 th click. It is very effective to make tunnels quickly, but i am not a fan of torches being used for lighting. To make this realistic, i put them under the guise of "Station Heating" and "Air Circulation".
I love this game! Escaping cruel bombing by running underground is a lot of fun! However, if you go too deep, you end up having TNT spawn undrground, which isn't any fun at all. I lost a chest full of stuff because of this bug.
But i am/will run an anarchy server using this game, because it's such a great concept!
