No MESE? [SOLVED]

by MHL » Post

I went below -512 and found lots of MESE! I realized that the code I found was for mgv6 only. I was using carpathian.
Hello I've recently created a new MTG world with around 110 mods. I was looking for Mese so I can make mesecons, luacontrollers, FPGA's, etc. I searched 5 huge cave systems below Y=-500 and I found nothing, not even a single ore. Mese is supposed to spawn at min. -64.

I decreased the ore scarcity in the Lua mapgen, but still - nothing.

In default Minetest Game the Mese crystals do not spawn above -512 and Mese blocks do not spawn above -2048. At -512 (or -2048 for the blocks) the density is super thin (i.e. extremely rare) and gets thicker the deeper you go. Wherever you got -64 from: this information is wrong and your source is outdated.

https://github.com/minetest/minetest_game/pull/2107

So if there is no mod that sets the spawn location/density for Mese to -64 you simply need to dig deeper.

Fragment from MTG's Default for 5.0.0:

Code: Select all

	minetest.register_ore({
		ore_type       = "scatter",
		ore            = "default:stone_with_mese",
		wherein        = "default:stone",
		clust_scarcity = 18 * 18 * 18,
		clust_num_ores = 3,
		clust_size     = 2,
		y_max          = -64,
		y_min          = -255,
	})

	minetest.register_ore({
		ore_type       = "scatter",
		ore            = "default:stone_with_mese",
		wherein        = "default:stone",
		clust_scarcity = 13 * 13 * 13,
		clust_num_ores = 5,
		clust_size     = 5,
		y_max          = -256,
		y_min          = -31000,
	})

Have you actually read the merged pull request and the description what the result from this request is? In case you didn’t: Do it. In case you did: Repeat until you understand what it does.

There is no Mese above -512 and on -512 it is extremely rare getting more common till -1024.

The code you linked does exist but only applies to worlds with mgv6.
For all other mapgens (including the default mgv7), this code is what you should be looking at:

Code: Select all

	minetest.register_ore({
		ore_type       = "scatter",
		ore            = "default:stone_with_mese",
		wherein        = "default:stone",
		clust_scarcity = 18 * 18 * 18,
		clust_num_ores = 3,
		clust_size     = 2,
		y_max          = -512,
		y_min          = -1023,
	})

Oh, I was in such a hurry that I didn't notice it was for mgv6.
