Quadracoatl =========== Quadracoatl is an engine for moddable, multiplayer bloxel games created with Lua. Its goal is to provide a feature rich platform for creating and powering bloxel games of all kinds with the following goals: * Multiplayer by default, Singleplayer is "just offline/direct multiplayer". * Core API written in Java, scriptable in Lua. * Games are moddable by default, a "game" is just a fancy package for mods. * Client can connect to any server, the lient receives all necessary information/data/logic from the server upon connecting to it.
