Where is the documentation to understand how it works? Is there any example of use?

See lua_api.txt:
documentation wrote: Ore types
---------------
These tell in what manner the ore is generated.
All default ores are of the uniformly-distributed scatter type.

- scatter
Randomly chooses a location and generates a cluster of ore.
If noise_params is specified, the ore will be placed if the 3d perlin noise at
that point is greater than the noise_threshhold, giving the ability to create a non-equal
distribution of ore.
- sheet
Creates a sheet of ore in a blob shape according to the 2d perlin noise described by noise_params.
The relative height of the sheet can be controlled by the same perlin noise as well, by specifying
a non-zero 'scale' parameter in noise_params. IMPORTANT: The noise is not transformed by offset or
scale when comparing against the noise threshhold, but scale is used to determine relative height.
The height of the blob is randomly scattered, with a maximum height of clust_size.
clust_scarcity and clust_num_ores are ignored.
This is essentially an improved version of the so-called "stratus" ore seen in some unofficial mods.
Any suspcions what that "stratus" might allude to? :) The function is called register_ore. Lua voxelmanip also exists, but as there's an extra function for ore distribution, register_ore might be more fitting. I would be glad if you could use that function since it most likely will speed things up considerably. The technic mod uses generate_ore for creating sheets of marble and granite: oregen.lua.

Thank you I will do some tests with that, stratus is a mistype of stratum :P


Let me show you the shapes I was generating with my function.

And here you can see the complete shape flying over the world in de debug phase when I was creating them in the air by mistake :P

You're not the first one :-) There are some intresting ore-generation screenshots somewhere on the forum.

Marble and granite from the technic mod spawn in a way that is comparable to the stones from darkage. Some parameters might need fine-tuning, but in general even that's close enough :-)

Since it seems this mod hasn't been updated in a while I decided to fix it up a bit. This new version has the marble tile texture, and if the mod Moreblocks is installed it will override the stairs.lua and read the moreblocks.lua. This allows the blocks I thought would best be fitted for the circular saw.

Hopefully you suggestion is taken. I am trying to get some parts of this mod into castles++, but I am kinda flustered at the number of forks there are... : /

I have also created this commit: https://github.com/CraigyDavi/Craig-Ser ... 35509fd84e. It adds a few more stairs and fixes a typo.

I never got round to it but there has been a change in the stairsplus mod API which may require some changes in moreblocks. The API is avaliable here: https://gitorious.org/calinou/moreblock ... lus/API.md

Hi everyone,
Hi Craigydavi,
is there any chance we can roll your changes into the existing darkage mod so that there wont be confusing multiple versions of the mod for people to sift through before finding the one they want?
p.s. I love the darkage mod, and have been using it since the day I first discovered it.

Integrating all those forks back into one would be highly welcome! Please do so. It's not my mod, but I do like it a lot as well :-)

Check out my fork.

Make sure to read the readme!

I updated my fork now and added the best of CraigiDavi and Hybrid Dogs forks.
It uses now register_ore for fast generation of chalk cliffs and desert stone with iron.
For the other strati it uses now the fast lua voxel manipulator.

Also there are 4 more plaster nodes and 4 wall types which requires Mintest 0.4.14.

Download is aviable at Bitbucket (.zip) and at Github (.zip)
Source is aviable there too: Bitbucket and at Github

Introducing: Tuff
Wikipedia wrote:Tuff (from the Italian tufo) is a type of rock made of volcanic ash ejected from a vent during a volcanic eruption. Following ejection and deposition, the ash is compacted into a solid rock in a process called consolidation.
In darkage there are 2 sorts of Tuff: the normal brown-white Tuff and Rhyolitic Tuff.
They are available as rock, rubble, bricks, old tuff bricks and as wall.

yes please keep this mod going. i love the new blocks for building and the new nodes for the earth like mud, silts, etc. We need more nodes so that it's not boring stone all the time. I use the mg_villages mod and darkage makes a good combination with it.
