Minetest XP mod (xp_redo)

Minetest mod for player experience management (xp) It adds an xp counter per player and ranks according to your xp level. The xp level, your rank and a progress bar to the next rank will show up in your hud. On every rank level up you get a award-like notification. There is also a xpgate block which, when placed under a wooden door will only allow players with a certain xp level to go through.


  • Unzip the archive, rename the folder to xp_redo and place it in ..minetest/mods/

  • GNU/Linux: If you use a system-wide installation place it in ~/.minetest/mods/.

  • If you only want this to be used in a single world, place the folder in ..worldmods/ in your world directory.

For further information or help, see:


  • givexp: Manage XP of your users.

Player nametags (with rank-colors)


Some initial ranks are hardcoded in ranks.lua. (Swiss military ranks, but translated to english.... sorry :)

  • Recruit (xp: 0)
  • Soldier (xp: 10)
  • Appointee (xp: 100)
  • Private (xp: 1000)
  • Corporal (xp: 10000)
  • Seargant (xp: 100000)

Lua api



rankDef = {
	name = "Rank name",
	icon = "myicon.png" -- Should fit withing the background icon (16x32px)
	color = {r=255, g=255, b=255}, -- Player name tag color
	xp = 100 -- xp threshold

ranks are held in xp_redo.ranks as a table.


Returns the rankDef for given xp amount



Returns the xp level for given playername (always a number).

xp_redo.add_xp(playername, xp)

Adds the amount of xp to given playername (can be negative for xp removal).
