I'll be Streaming on Youtube the first weekend in January. If you're interested in co-hosting the show click here.
In this video we'll be looking at the Chess mod for Minetest. All you need to do is craft a single "spawn block" and it will place the entire board and all the playing pieces. To select which color you will play as you just punch the king. You'll only be able to move the pieces of your color. The mod doesn't enforce any of the rules of chess, so the players will need to know the rules and follow them.
To place the board you'll need a clear space that's ten by ten nodes. The spawn block always places to the North East so make sure you have ten empty nodes in both of those directions. If the chess board can't be placed you'll get a chat message letting you know, but unfortunately it won't tell you why it can't be placed.

Are you tired of building with just cubic nodes? if so the noncubic mod is just for you. This mod adds about a dozen noncubic shapes that you can make out of a number of materials and beautify your builds.
This is an older mod, but it still works just fine.
In this video I go over the bees/beekeeping mod. I do cheat a few times, using the /giveme command to get some elements of the mod, but a great little mod, l highly recommend this to anybody wanting to add a little extra realism to their worlds.
