[mod] 62 underground biomes! [1.1.3] [underch]

by Hume2 » Post

Underground Challenge: 62 Underground Biomes
Hello everyone!

Image

I created a new mod that enhances the underground a bit. It also makes mining slightly harder.

This mod now includes 62 underground biomes.

Some of the new blocks:

Some screenshots (not all biomes are shown): https://imgur.com/a/3atce3S
Outdated (v. 1.0) screenshots (not all biomes are shown): https://imgur.com/a/FzBvG1o

List of features:
+ Spoiler


Biomes:
+ Spoiler
License: code and models CC0, textures CC-BY-SA 3.0 (I personally wouldn't mind if you use them as you wish)

Expreimental: ores-JIT
Currently, ores are a huge waste of HDD. The vast majority of ores will be never mined out so there is no need to store the information about them. It's more effective to fill the bulk rocks by a single node and generate the ores when the stone gets exposed to the air. This tricks makes the world compress better. Believe or not, the world size will be like 3 times smaller using this feature. It's not glitch-free though. Before you use this, you need to remove the definitions of all ores which generate in default:stone from other mods manually.

Download: dependencies:
  • default
  • moreores?
  • flowers?
  • fire?
  • bucket?
  • stairs?
  • moreblocks?
  • walls?
Highly recommended: Modpack uchu, a set of mod that adds more usage for all new blocks and items.
If you have some ideas of more underground biomes, I might add them in a future release.

This looks pretty awesome compared to the generic caves in MTG, ill have to try this out! One personal criticism has to do with the water realms, i imagine them generated differently, im thinking they could appear at the bottom of some deep caves, and the dark prismarine (looks like prismarine brick tbh) would be reserved for dungeons or custom structures generating in that "realm", also shouldn't prismarine lamps be crafted instead of being generated? Just some personal opinions, take them as you will.

Thanks for your opinion. I made those water realms quite fast, they are just blobs generated like ores. By the way, did you know that it's possible to generate ores inside other ores? I think, it could be an underground biome. There could be some structures made of dark prismarine. For the lamps, I like that they light the realms. Maybe there could be an unlit subbiome.

I'll try to think about more underground biomes like water realms and lava realms. They will be most likely dry. I know the mod Caverealms. These realms will be similar in a way except the huge caves.

Yeah, huge open expanses underground quickly get boring, i prefer long windy tunnels with multiple forks in them.

BTW: I think magma blocks would fit into this mod rather well, don't you think?

And, so what? We've taken almost everything that's in MTG from MC, so why bring this up, also you don't have to use this mod. So if your intention was to complain about prismarine pre-existing in MC then please don't.

*EDIT: Ofc you could always suggest a different name for a water-realm stone type, *hint* *hint* :P

That's a good idea! Thanks!

Yes, I copied the idea from M¢. I like shiny things in water, no idea why. I made my own textures. Also there's no weedy prismarine in M¢ and there's no prismarine bricks in my mod.

I'd like to use another name but I can't think any better. I accept suggestions. I'd rather avoid names like something-stone.

The prismarine here appears in radically different settings if you ask me.

Yes, I didn't mean to copy M¢ completely. It is just called the same and looks similar. Even the crafting recipes around prismarine are way different. Maybe it should use another name.

Well sort-of, don't think i haven't noticed that prismarine is just modified default_stone, and "weedy" prismarine is modified default_mossy_cobblestone :P. That ofc doesn't change the fact that these textures are still awesome!

Yes, you're right. I wanted to say that they weren't derived from M¢ textures.

"Quartz-tear" or "Sea-gem" or "Sea-quartz" or "Flood-matrix" anyone?

*EDIT: or even "Rime-stone" or "Brine-stone"?
*EDIT2: hmmm "Black-ice" also means water....

Thanks for suggestions. I would accept a compound of two words but it shouldn't be much apparent. I like the "Sea-gem". It could be called "sichamine", pronounced as /si'kæmɪn/.

Yes, in American English. At least I think so. I prefer IPA for phonematic transcription.

I plan a bigger overhaul of this mod. There will be 46 underground biomes. I'm sort of finished with blocks (although some of them still don't work the way I want) and I'll now work on mapgen. Here you can see all the new blocks so far: Image

Thanks for offer. Could you please make some textures for dust, underground vines and mese crystals? Dust is a block and shouldn't look like coal dust. Crystals use 16x16px connected textures. Underground vines are up to your imagination. Please, share it under a license that is compatible with CC-BY-SA 3.0.

Thanks for ideas. I actually wanted to add mese crystals as blocks but I forgot to add them. I might add the other minerals in further releases.

Ok, I'll go explore underground... as soon as I find my jaw. It can't have dropped too far away.

Ps. Would you like some mushroom textures? Or are you already done adding mushrooms? (I just love fungi xP)

Sorry, I'm done with mushrooms. If you want, you can draw me ruby dust. I found that I forgot this block too. Also if you come with a potential usage of any of these new blocks, I could make a mod for that.
