Not finding diamonds down to -550

by superschizo » Sat May 18, 2019 13:35

Hi, my server does not seem to have diamond ore generating. I have mined down to -550, then tunneled all around without finding diamonds. I followed the nice advice at this thread viewtopic.php?f=6&t=13098 but no luck. Then I granted myself all privileges and went down to -1000 and explored caves without finding diamond ores. I don't know if it is my mod pack or the base game. Minetest 5.1.0-dev on a debian 9 LAN server with the following mods--craftguide, and the rest are by TenPlus1--mobs, mobs_monster, mob_horse, mobs_animal, ethereal, farming. More info is in the debug screen below...

I have tested two different unmodded worlds on 5.1.0-dev, one with valleys and the other with v7. I couldn't find diamonds in either at -500, so I think it is with the game and not the mods.

Here's the sauce to the newest MTG version. Since (roughly) 5.0.0, diamonds now only generate below -1024m due to the large caves and tunnels created by the mapgen (except mgv6). This means that you can still find diamonds above these limits, but only in mapblocks which were generated before Minetest 5.0.0.

The highest chance for diamonds is below -2048m. Consider using an elevator or teleporting mod to switch fast from surface to the nearly endless underground.

Yes, in MTG 5.0.0 all ores are roughly twice as deep, and iron is now below tin and copper.

It’s weird that teleporters are recommended use in MTG while none is provided.
