Hey @Minetest

I got a question concerning modding:
How feasible would it be to create a houseboat/starship mod, with the following characteristics:

a base platform, which swims/flies, to which blocks can be attached by the player to create a custom houseboat/starship in-game.
If it would not be possible to edit the boat/ship during movement, would it be possible to render it immovable by anchoring/landing, editing and then making it movable again?

@daniel This is commonly known as a Voxel Area Entity - a moving object which consists of voxel nodes.

It's not possible to do this well in Minetest, but there are mods that attempt to do it such as LVAE: github.com/greenxenith/lvae
