Synopsis

minetestserver [Server Options] [Common Options] [WORLD PATH]

Description

Minetest is one of the first InfiniMiner/Minecraft(/whatever) inspired games (started October 2010), with a goal of taking the survival multiplayer gameplay to a slightly different direction.

The main design philosophy is to keep it technically simple, stable and portable. It will be kept lightweight enough to run on fairly old hardware.
