Title: Helping out?
Post by: AnonymousJohn on January 03, 2011, 06:42:52 am
I'm not the best programmer, and I don't have a lot of experience in C++ (I'm willing to learn, though), but is there any way I can get in on the development of this project? I'd really like to help wherever I can. I'm coming back from the world of hMod plugin programming, with code-breaking upgrades just to stay compatible with Notch's updates, and I'd really like to see a good, useable, FAST, and independently-developed server software that doesn't have to be updated as often as a mod for the official server does. I'm pretty sure this is the software I'm looking for, minus a few features (mob spawns, ores, trees, water/lava physics last time I checked), and I want to do what I can for it. Is this possible? If so, how can I help?

Hi there =)

If you're on IRC, join irc.esper.net #mineserver to follow the development more closely ;)

Every programmer is welcome to our project, easiest way to get in to the development is to fork our main repo at http://github.com/fador/mineserver (http://github.com/fador/mineserver) ..by signing in to the github and so on.

Well if you want to help, you could for example check the bug listing at http://redmine.fknsrs.biz/projects/mineserver/issues?set_filter=1&tracker_id=1 (http://redmine.fknsrs.biz/projects/mineserver/issues?set_filter=1&tracker_id=1) and see if you could verify any of those and maybe locate them..altough I find that a bit boring.

We actually have (almost) working water physics but mostly the drying out part is buggy, if you want to take a look at that, it would help.. Water physics are just disabled in the earlier builds because of a bug in the config reader...

But anyway, you are very welcome to help us even by just reporting bugs!
