Minetest is a voxel game engine than allows for many different games to be played.

Minetest Server Setup

Below is a basic configuration that will setup the Minetest server and use port 30000.

 services.minetest-server = {
   enable = true;
   port = 30000;

With this setup, a user named minetest will be created, along with its home folder '/var/lib/minetest'. All standard Minetest configuration and world files are stored in /var/lib/minetest/.minetest.

The Minetest service will be started after running nixos-rebuild. It can be controlled using systemctl

systemctl start minetest-server.service
systemctl stop minetest-server.service

Additional options can be found in the NixOS options search
