@MrCerealGuy: I did find quite an unusual bug. When you want to use the "sneak" button, it just teleports me 20 blocks up the there (and more). I did change the keys for it; Originally, it was L-CTRL but, I switched it to L-SHIFT instead. Is there anyway you can fix that? :3

Comments for StoneCraft: It is a wonderful game; I would rate it more then its potential. The game is very easy to use and does well to visualize Minecraft. It also does provide and support different mods that can alter the game's performance and abilities in-game. Thank you for contributing your hardwork and effort to making this game into a stabilized formatting! We all appreciate it, especially me! :D 


Hello BluA57, thank you for your feedback. I got the same bug :D, it will be fixed in 1.2.1a.

this happens with my ctrl left

Great! I will be looking forward to in its advances. One question: By any chance, do you in an estimated time that update 1.21.1a will be launched in that game?

Bit dissapoint that its laggier than Minecraft itself its way more laggy but is a good idea maybe use java eventually and then it will work better then Minecraft.. hopefully


Hello xXLinkster17Xx, thank you for your feedback. Stonecraft is a bit laggy, but consider that Stonecraft is still in development (alpha) and not a finished game like Minecraft.

To make it better then minecraft add vehicles please (cough* Fords cough*)

I'm bored I own Minecraft Premium and I wanna see if this can run on my Laptop that Can run Actual Minecraft If not Very Dissapointed


how about you support mojang by buying minecraft?

Hello barric, I have bought Minecraft. It's a great game and inspired me to make Stonecraft in my free time.

world is not generating problems wut evr i do and every mob and skin is white !!!

Cool Update...WUT I HAVE TO DO ?! O_o

Strange, I don't have these bugs. Are there errors in the debug.txt file? You can copy it via pastebin.com.

acctualy they stoped even if i didnt try again to make a survival....I supose these errors stoped


u can't just send a online update to the users that using the game and let it update? Like steam?

Now with skins! Download the new version 1.2.0-alpha!

the minimap has changed a bit

i have to delete my old coppy and istall this one or is instant upgrade?

You can install the new version over your old version.

Bad timing..I just installed new update and delete previous

(Edited 1 time)

Woooppsss!!! I guess when i installed it it just updated my old game NICE

Fo next versions better be carefull with the not so simple mobs

BECAUSE IT IS A DRAGON RAMPAGE ! All the other mobs spawn great axcept : The Phenix Dragon of Fir ethat is like hunting u !!! Cmon ! I cant set home or make a survival video without going creative andgive myself a night swoord

Yeah you're right, Phoenix and Moonheron etc are actually very hard, they make me crazy :D. I promise to make better game balancing in further releases.

ok thanks !

It tells me I ran out of Lua memory does anyone know where I can go to change the Lua memory setting.

Hello Brand7625, have you downloaded the actual version? No, there is no Lua memory setting. Can you post me your debug.txt via https://pastebin.com/?

How would I know if I downloaded the actual version?

Do a right-click on stonecraft.exe, go to the details. The file version should be

Mine says 1.2.0. What do I do?

I know i already said that 10001 times but now :

In the next versions pls if u can just make a server maker . U know turn your maps into servers 

not much just 20 players

(Edited 1 time)

Well just to help this question, making a server is not so easy but if you really want to make server, it will take alot of effort and time to make one successfully. If you want, type in Google on how to make a server in StoneCraft. All though, since StoneCraft is powered by Minetest in a way, type in Google how to make a server in Minetest. If you make a server correctly, you should go to the serverlist in StoneCraft and check to see if your server pops up. Hope this helps! :)

When I load a "new" map the screen is grey and then it just goes back to the menu or it crashes. What do I do?


Hello Miner Shinekaranashi, in the upcoming version 1.2.0a you'll be able to change your skin!

What program did you use to create the setup?

Hello Anadeia, I'm using InstallForge. It's free and very easy to use.

This is GREAT! However, I don't understand how to stack items. Can you help me?

Hello SkittlesCat, thank you for your feedback! I hope this will help you: Dropping/Stacking items

Hey MrCerealGuy plsi need your help ! I want to change my account I got banned fom somehwere and i wanna change my account so i can enter it is not agasing anyrule people do this but idk how !!! PLS

Hey IanniEx/GalacticNukeGames, I can't do that. You have to contact the admin(s) of the server from where you got the ban. I'm only the admin from the official Stonecraft Survival Server and there is no ban.

eeeemmm wut i wanna change my minetest account ?

Hey, in Stonecraft/Minetest there is no global account/registration like for example in Minecraft. For every server you have to choose a separate Name/Password.

I tryed to play on that srvr with my old pc and my phone ! DONT WORK ! Is like they got my rutter number banned !

Hello, yes obviously they banned your IP.

BUT HOW I GET AGAIN TO THE SRVR ? Maybe i have to go somewhere else with internet?

I see three possibilities:

1. You contact the admin and he unban you.
2. You get a new IP from your internet service provider (doesn't work with hostname bans).
3. You choose another server.

I am playing on other srvr more popular

Why is lagging?

Hello Minecrazy999, it depends on your hardware. And keep in mind, Stonecraft is in development, it is currently in alpha state.

does the game have a "creative" mode I'm interested in building

Hello rileyghost55, of course Stonecraft has got a creative mode. Have fun!

Video from IHATEPINK

How do you get mods?

Hello Mr.TankUniverse, here you get some information >> Modding Stonecraft

is there a gun mode ?

I would try this mod Firearms.

how do you tame things

You can try to tame animals by feeding them. Try to tame a sheep with wheat. Wolves love meat.

this is an amazing game, continue developing this OP

Hello DefenderOfHyrule, thank you! Have fun!

(Edited 1 time)

Could you link to the source code on github in the main post? Thank you.

HHHHHHHHEEEEEELLLLPPPPPPP I GOT BANNED FROM SkyBlock pppllllssssss what shoud i do ???? How to change account ?


Hi Developer , I relly want to make a Client Server in StoneCraft and I don't know how ? Can you help me please ?

Hello, if you want to set up a dedicated server, then look here: Setting up a server.

kk a bit hard but why not try it out ! I can find a tutorial on how to make this on yt?

Hello, it's easier as you think. Try to start a local server on your Windows machine. Create first a world with name e.g. YourWorld, next exit Stonecraft and open a terminal window. Type stonecraft.exe --server --worldname YourWorld. Now the Server is starting. Open Stonecraft again and choose "Client", edit Address to "" <- this is your local IP. Now choose a Name/Password and you can connect to your local server. Now everybody on your LAN can join the game. If you want to play over Internet with friends, you have to rent a server or you open your router IP/Ports for Stonecraft, see Port Forwarding.

first i wanna make public server not local i am from greece nobody is playing on greece except me

When i go to the 3th option up ''Server'' I select a world and then i press start game on the Public seting sooo this is how create server because after i go again to Client it dosent exist

You have to set up port forwarding in your router configuration. Example: Your local IP is and your router IP is Then you have to forward your public IP:Port to your local IP:Port Now the server list can "see" your local server. The server list in Stonecraft doesn't list local servers.

I got banned from SkyBlock for just a simple joke can you do something ?

Hello, sorry I can't help you, that is not my server. Contact the admin from SkyBlock.


this game <3 <3 better than minecraft 100%

Hey Belbesy, nice video xD.

Hi developer how i can be 3rd person like minecraft can you update 3r person i really like that

Hello, you can use F7 to cycle through camera modes.

Didn't work. I just submitted a bug report. Perhaps he can fix it.

For some reason, when I launch the game, it runs into a runtime error. Why is this happening?

Hello, Dave Microwaves Games, please use this Stonecraft Bug Report to submit a bug. I need more information to help you.
