||Only available in development version!
This article describes a feature in an upcoming release of Minetest. It has become a part of the development version of Minetest and will likely become a part of the following stable release. However, things may be subject to change before release.
Binoculars allow you to zoom.
To enable zooming, hold the binoculars your hand and press the punch key. After that, you just have to keep it anywhere in your inventory. If you don't press the punch key, zooming gets enabled after a few seconds.
After zooming has been enabled, press the zoom key (default: Z) to actually zoom.
In Creative Mode or with the
creative privilege, you don't need binoculars, you can zoom “for free”.
