Need game similar to MineCraft for multiplayer with my son.

Post by luosT .tcR » Sun Apr 07, 2013 5:07 am

My 6 year old son loves playing MineCraft, I want to play multiplayer with him but to host a dedicated server take up way too much system resources due to its running in a Java virtual machine and need 1.5 GIGs of ram and who knows how much processor.
When I look at the game it is basically Quake2 leggos style mod.
So it should be able to be compiled to a Linux machine and use minimal system resources running strait machine code vs. Java on the server logic side.
There is a Halflife2 mod called SourceCraft:
http://www.moddb.com/mods/sourcecraft-zombies
but it is unfinnished and I don't think there will be an Ipad/Iphone app or Android app avalible for it when its finnished.
Please point me in the right direction, thanks.

If this does not exist, the DDay mod team should consider creating a Q2 mod like this that resembles MineCraft that runs a Q2/R1Q2 dedicated linux server and make it avalibe for free, then make a fortune selling the Ipad & Android app.
If this is considered by the dev team I would be willing to host the server side mod files for download.
I know you are thinking it will be tough to get R1Q2 to save cubical brushes and textures that were modified ingame on the server, but I am sure won't be too difficult in singleplayer.
We should give it a shot and worry about game saving later on.
As far as levels go, anyone should be able to create one in Quark or GTKRadiant.

Minetest is does not have touch screen controls yet, but its in the works as we speak.
As far as MineCraft, they just came out with a multi-player app that allows you to host a server on IOS and also lets you join servers over the internet instead or just internal network only, so now my 7 year old son loves multi-player, he hosts a server on his IPad2 for just creative build ........... then he waits for them to start building, half way through their completion, he will eather start fucking their shit up ....... or start a lava flow on their structure, thus setting them on FIRE when they touch it .......... amassing, as I didn't teach him to do that, it must be in his nature, taking after his dad.
My son has officially joined the Rct. ranks on his own, the only thing missing is the awesome DDay screaming when your on fire sound.
So for Minetest development, I would like to ask permission from the DDAY Dev team to add their awesome on fire screaming sounds to the next or future update to Minetest.
