0.7 is all about the texture tool. The texture tool allows you to texture each side of the node box, and export that with the mod.

It is recommended that you use Irrlicht 1.8 or later. This is not in the Ubuntu apt-get repos. Use misc/, or see the installing Irrlicht page on their website.

  • Other nodes are hidden when you are not in the node tool.
  • Minetest style shading added. Node boxes no longer have this weird smooth lighting effect.
  • Texture tool added.
  • Texture projection added.
  • Dynamic viewports. Change what each viewport is looking at. (top/bottom/left/right etc)
  • Media Manager. (Export and import textures)
  • Merge / import project.
  • Copy and paste exported code from editor (Irrlicht 1.8 or greater only)
  • Coordinate direction arrows for each viewport.


  • Faster node box resizing when there are lots of boxes.
  • Textures no longer stretch.
  • Node position is now read from file, rather than ignored.


  • Added build scripts for Linux.
  • NBE files are now in an archive style format.
  • NBE file parser version bumped.
  • File parsers give meaningful error messages.
  • Cleaned unused enums and defines.
  • Polymorphic dialog system added.
