It is not only culture differences: like I never wanted lego, but more I would say, I want more variety but I'm lazy.
When I started playing this, I am full of confusion: I just die to Dungeon Master right away in explorion. No torch.
And then I found& read some wiki articles, then exploring underground for collecting resources, then I start to build something tree and glass and house and cave and tower and wall and maze etc. everywhere, then I quit.
This is a game I spent 5hrs+ play time over last 4 months. I just don't want it anymore until get something new and network play properly.
PS: I will wait until 0.7~0.8 then come back.
There already are so many mods and features. With the last update, tooltips and inventory drag&dron was added, and modding API changed to a better way.
It has buckets, jungle, mods system and textures updating from server. Development started moving faster, so it has even more features in dev version now.
I had to download and compile libjpeg8, then I made a symbolic link of the libjpeg.so.8 from /usr/local/lib to /usr/lib. In order to make it work.
Sorry about my english, I'm from Uruguay.
I'm on Ubuntu 10.04.
This is awesome game. It adds some useful features to minecraft (mostly in the game engine). Author has to add more blocks and it will be completely playable.
I have a server with minetest and play there with my friends.
