@mars more toots with details will follow - but in short, there are many nice things to explore, like techeth, this is a multilayer world, this time including floating islands, astroids and nether and we are using a tweaked valleys mapgen. the server however aims to be easier and less complex, so we did not include technic for example.

The big tree awaits you - on our beautiful new server:
Illuna aestiVal - Valley of Summer, born out of the server as promised.

Ich, in dem Falle jetzt mal der @nac hätte Lust sich mal mit anderen Minetest Menschen zu vernetzen. Vorzugsweise aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum und mit den Themen: Technik, Pädagogik / Didaktik. Gibts hier interesse? Gern auch als Antwort drunter. Ich dachte an ein digitales Treffen via BigBlueBotton oder Jitsi. Nennen würde ich es "1. digitale Minetest-Konferenz" 🙂

#minetest #bildung #konferenz

@moparisthebest thanks, happy to read that you've enjoyed your stay - and looking forward to see you ingame again! 🎉

@illunaminetest My kids and I explored this a few weeks ago and were amazed, keep up the great work!
