Along with the normal controls, there are three so-called “movement modes” to change the way the player moves. All movement modes require special privileges.

Fast mode

If this mode is activated (default key: J), it allows the player to move faster. If the fly mode is not activated, the player can run faster using the so-called “Use” key (Setting name in minetest.conf: keymap_special1), which is E normally (not to be confused with Using). If the fly mode is activated, the player will fly faster instead.

The “fast” privilege is required to use this.

Fly mode

If this mode is activated (default key: K), the effects of gravity do not apply to the player anymore. This slightly changes the controls: The jump key (default: Space) will cause the player to rise and the sneak key (default: Shift) to sink.

The “fly” privilege is required to use this.

Noclip mode

If this mode is activated (default key: H) along with fly mode, the player can fly through walls. If fly mode is not activated as well, noclip mode has nearly no effect; it only prevents screen blackening when the player's head is inside a solid block.

The “noclip” privilege is required to use this.
