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

Contents

Pitch move mode

If this mode is activated (default key: P), the movement keys will move you relative to your current view pitch (vertical look angle) when you're in a liquid or in fly mode.

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 “Special” key (Setting name in minetest.conf: keymap_special1), which is E normally. 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.
