  • Create new minetest4 directory and copy essential files from minetest4_preupdate into it
    • mkdir minetest4
    • copy bin, games, builtin folder from minetest4_build to minetest4
    • copy minetest.conf and mods from minetest4_prebuild to minetest4/minetest4/games/mesetint/mods

        • bucket, default, legacy, experimental, give_initial_stuff
    • Run bin/minetestserver and verify all the mods work correctly
