This is a brief history of how I know Minetest. What is Minetest? If you don't know what it is then read it here before continuing. All happened after my laptop has broken down, you can read about that here. Basically, I'm looking for more mobile games since I can no longer use my laptop. While I look at the Google Playstore, I found several games that is similar to games I used to play on laptop, and one of them is Multicraft, which is similar to Minecraft that I played on local LAN. There is Minecraft Pocket Edition but it is expensive.
I don't have Minecraft account, I just play it locally as one of our friend has bought the full game and give us and friends copies of the game, saying that it is legal to copy it to play locally via LAN, and they know we can't afford the full game and it will be useless to buy online account as the online account is very extremely expensive and we would not be able to play much online as the internet here is very bad.
On 7 November 2016, I play Multicraft for two days, then I'm thinking if the game could be modded because Minecraft that we play over LAN were modded. I search for Multicraft's folder in internal storage and I actually found it, and to my surprised, there's another folder inside it and the folder is called "Minetest". Then, I think that must be some sort of engine that Multicraft is using, so I went on and search for Minetest. Surprisingly, I found Minetest website and all the downloads which includes Android APK. I installed the original Minetest from its website and say goodbye to Multicraft.
On 9 November 2016, I started playing Minetest in singleplayer as the internet is not good for a few days, I downloaded a few mods that I feel good and build my dream house in it. I tried to duplicate the few thousand-blocks long train system (carts) that I've built in Minecraft on LAN, but I'm quite dissapointed with the fact of the Mesecons mod at that time where the signal lost after a few hundreds blocks, but there are other things that exists in Minetest but not in Minecraft which make me fall in love with Minetest. Some people would ask, isn't Minecraft limits to 256 blocks or so? Ehm, that's the height & depth limit, not the length & width.
On 17 November 2016 around 5AM, since I have new mobile internet which is less expensive and better signal, I tried to play Minetest in multiplayer for the first time, and the first server I went to is FREE PIZZA SERVER!!. I went there because ... pizza is very expensive in real life at here, so when pizza is free, I wonder how it is even though it's just game. The spawn area is laggy so much, but I think that's normal as I'm on phone (not tablet, leave alone PC). I did take screenshots each time I went to new servers. I couldn't get free area to build house and gave up on the server.
