I've added two images to show the difference between normal map generation and map generation with this mod.
Basically it's just a matter of taste: either you like sand "balconies" or you don't.

It must be said that this mod can be quite heavy depending on the number of interested nodes, I've been using it with the supported mods and I've got several of these:
"WARNING[Server]: ServerEnv: Trying to store id = 0 statically but block (X,Y,Z) already contains 64 objects."
as well as walking into blocks not yet rendered.

What is ”DEFAULT MAPGEN” in this case? Afaik current or dev versions of major mapgens already deals with sand balconies by adding solid nodes underneath.

Gravel located in the roof of caves will now block players somewhat, when it falls.

Yes, I've also found tunnels blocked by gravel.

Have you tried 5.0.0-dev?

Yes, I was curious to see the kelps, but I don't use it for playing nor for mod development.
Concerning the subject of your question - "floating" falling_node(s) being addressed in 5-dev - what can I say... when 5-stable will be released then maybe this mod will be obsolete, but since it supports "Fallen Nodes" which adds dirt and many other "soft" nodes to the falling_node group then perhaps this mod will still be useful (?) for someone.

You’re right, as a solution to the issue of 0.4.x it’s solves the problem, though if the 5.0.0 styled solution was desirable it could probably be packported as a mod.
