Minetest (a FREE alternative for MineCraft)

On this page you can learn more about using Minetest, a free open source alternative to MineCraft for Educational purposes.
One thing we have found is that it can be helpful to create totally flat worlds where it is always day time and give pupils the ability to fly around so they can easily build vertical structures and not get stuck down holes!.

The easiest way of doing this is to add the following lines to the top of the minetest.conf file, which you will find in the main Minetest folder once you have downloaded and installed it.

Add the following lines to the 'minetest.conf' file

mg_flags = flat,  v6_biome_blend
time_speed = 0
default_privs = interact, shout, fly
