Stonecraft is an InfiniMiner/Minecraft inspired game started in 2016 based on the Minetest open-source voxel game engine. It will be kept lightweight enough to run on fairly old hardware.

Stonecraft is open-source and free, released under the GNU General Public License v3.0. Thanks a lot to the Minetest community, to "Notch" the creator of Minecraft and to Linus Torvalds, the creator of the free operating system Linux.

This game IS NOT FINISHED. Don't expect it to work as well as a finished game will. Please report any bugs. When doing that, debug.txt is useful. Please use the Stonecraft bug report.

For Itch.io App users and in general: you have to deinstall the old version of Stonecraft! Unfortunately the Itch.io App doesn't delete old files during the update process. Don't run the setup over an old installation.

Is multiplayer available?

Uhh.. yeah? Just go into the server list.

Auszug aus der e-mail, die ich erhalten habe:
Guten Abend cHyper,
sorry für die späte Antwort.
Leider ist es aufgrund meines Vollzeitjobs nicht möglich an Stonecraft weiter zu arbeiten. Ich habe jedoch die Hoffnung irgendwann wieder in Teilzeit gehen zu können, dann würde ich gerne wieder an Updates arbeiten. Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Andreas Zahnleiter

please add some other mobs too like wolves, fox, etc to make it more real. And could you please add the removed tools to the game like flashlight because still on enabling technic I could not find it. And could you please tell me how can I enable hunger because I am unable to find and enable that.

If you don't mind could you please add the beacon which gives status effects in not so simple mobs option because I love beacon.

Just one thing could you please add the feature to play other mods on stonecraft because I want to play mineclone 5 on stonecraft as it looks nice

hello how do I run the game, it does not open XDI tried to get the game in the folder and open it for the promo minetest, but it doesn't work, I think I need to use the client

Can You release Bit32 version of the game?

the 32-bit version is no longer supported by the dev, sorry.

Hey guys, a new big version is out!

awesome. good work. keep up the good job.

changelog of 1.3.1 please?

Hey, I have no changelog. Over 8k files were changed, but don't expect a big content update. But the biggest changes are
- upgraded to Minetest 5.4.0
- updated many third-party mods, removed some outdated mods and replaced with newer ones
- removed german translation (too time consuming)
- bug fixes

I downloaded the game, but when i opened the file, the game isnt in there. All i see is the files for the game. Plz help

A new version is out. I recommend to use the Itch.io App for automatic updates.

(1 edit)

can you make it that it supports 1090 1080 p or something it doesnt switch to fullscreen it says the graphic mode is not supported

i dont care if i have to use strech res too

Settings -> All Settings -> Graphics -> In-Game -> Advanced

Screen width
Screen height

I know it's awkward :(.

Offline? How do I "Play Offline?"


Explain that sentence please!

If you create a local world, you don't need an internet connection. For example, in Minecraft you have to log in via Minecraft launcher regardless you want play offline or online.

is possible to play on offline??

is it possible to do an option do invert mouse right click betwen left click cause i prefer to mie/attack with right click .Thank you (im not talking about the original one wich is to invert the mouse not the click)

Hi. I have a bit of problem. I've been trying to fix the screen size the game loads in. It usually loads the game covering my whole screen (full-screen), but I want to keep it windowed and down to 1064 x 600. I've been using the Minetest settings to edit the screen size, but when I launch the game again, it goes back to full resolution (the windowed option works). I tried editing the minetest.config file and that didn't work either. Anybody have any tips for me?

Try alt + enter or just f4 if it dont work i dont know how to do it..

? news about this project?

MrCerealGuy probably took a break or something. Although, I'd appreciate it if it would stay in this version of "minetest" so that it can still remain compatible with older servers using multi-player, but he can still update stuff for single-player. There are some servers I enjoy that aren't up-to-date to 5.3.0.

oh... thx for info..

A new version ist out. Sorry for the long time.

any new updates anyway out there?? !!

Yes! Sorry for the long time.

(1 edit)

quick translation: "can you make the spider a little bit less frigthening?"

Yeah they are wayy too realistic, i have mild arachnophobia so it doesnt bother me that much but other people might not even play the game because of that, and i don't believe there is a any major reason for them to be that realistic.

oh.thank they scare me a lot but i go try the game  I hope I don't shit in my pants
