Hi, here are some changes to the default settings that improve gameplay, performance and connection time.
Maybe we can tweak those settings on our own bus most people can't.

Megaf added some commits Jun 10, 2014

Changed Time Out message from ERROR to INFO.

Updating default settings so players can have a better experience.
Some changes that improve the game experience, reduce connecting time and make client have better FPS.
#63	settings->setDefault("always_fly_fast", "false") // Makes the experience of placing and taking nodes much better when flying. I find it much better to fly fast when and if you want by holding the "fast" key down.

#84 	settings->setDefault("viewing_range_nodes_max", "200"); // 240 may be too taxing on GPUs and theres no real gain in view distance.
#85	settings->setDefault("viewing_range_nodes_min", "30"); // Lots of players have rally low end GPUs, maybe most of the minetest players, the number here could be even lower.

#94 	settings->setDefault("client_unload_unused_data_timeout", "300"); // Again, most minetest players have low end GPUs and computers, maybe with limited amount of RAM, reducing the timeout for unloading unused data from 10 minutes to 5 is a good idea.

#112 	settings->setDefault("fall_bobbing_amount", "0.6"); // This makes falling much more realistic and "enjoyable".

#133 	settings->setDefault("preload_item_visuals", "false"); // I have never found any truly good reason to preload all item visuals, it just makes connecting time at least twice as long. Possible gameplay losses are minimal.

#141 	settings->setDefault("curl_timeout", "4000"); // One more setting to reduce a little the connecting time. One second may looks like little, but in real world gameplay it means a lot. Could be reduced to three seconds actually.

The fall bobbing amount is to much. I prefer to have it turned off, but sill when you want it, 0.6 is to much.

You need to rebase to remove those merge messages.
