Welcome to the website of Telesight’s Minetest servers! Here you will find a compilation of all the Minetest servers we run …

Minetest is a free open source voxel game engine. It is a very good alternative to Minecraft because it is totally free! You don’t have to pay to play Minetest. To the standard installation we can add a lot of Mods (modifications) and in this way we create our unique servers. Our maps are 62000x62000x62000 blocks. You can mine 31000 blocks down, or build 31000 blocks up.

Our story

We (Telesight and SwampTurtle) started playing Minetest in 2014. After playing on a series of servers, we decided to built our own servers. Why? Because during our time of playing Minetest we lost many of our builds because of closing of the server, loosing of the serverbackup, or because the server became to costly to run. Anyway, we wanted a more reliable platform to play Minetest on, and that would be ours …

So in 2015 we created our first servers. We started with creating a secure network, selected the needed hardware and started thinking about the different servers we wanted to build.

Our organisation

We build our hardware, host our servers and design our Minetest servers as a small team. During the years we learned what our hardware can handle and what not. We learned which mods to select to create a playable server. We also learned how to adapt or write our own mods. We design, create and test our servers before we go public with them.

We divide the server activities. Telesight keeps an eye on the network performance, the server settings and installation of the mods. Swampturtle does the creative things like spawn design and mods adaptations.
