This game is the best minecraft-clone out there.
It is just missing a survival-mode and monsters.

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.

Similar to minecraft, but already GPL, free and with low system requirements.

2014-04-0601:19:35nullzeroSHODAN has had access to your root account for a while now without your knowledge and is currently downloading and installing itself onto every Linux-based machine on Planet Earth!
2014-04-0601:21:37nullzero(though a user said steam's System Shock 2 linux port is wine based... can anyone confirm?)
2014-04-0610:31:45Curly BraceHadn't tested myself, but I've also heard from people around that its wine based. Not sure which approach exactly they do use though - either simply wrapping binary inside wine launcher, or compiling sources against winelibs
2014-04-0610:33:48Curly BraceI assume people who own the game can play around with obdump to see what's inside game binary
2014-04-0610:34:47Curly BraceAnyway, System Shock 2 is a brilliant thing and its good to see it "offically" supported on Linux, even with a help of some red wine
2014-04-0621:04:05nullzeroYep, SS2 was one of my favorites... even got it last year in GOG but had trouble playing in wine... maybe its time to try again :) (also played it with the OST of the horror sci-fi Event Horizon in the background for a real fear mode)
2014-04-1007:13:14luojie-duneA game bulid upon wine lib shall be considered a Linux game too, so wine port is OK.
2014-04-1218:55:38nullzerohmm... When I'm submitting a new game and filling in the details, If I put screenshots above the 512 Kb limit for the second time, the game is automatically submitted, even if I don't click save. Happened twice!
2014-04-1318:27:49sixsixfivenullzero< you can uplaod a little more eg 540kb works too
2014-04-1622:34:40nullzeroSaw there is now a resize terminal command in the game screenshots area. Nice! ^_^
