Looks cool. What is the license? I would like to use the Ent and Spider models if it was permissible.

Screenshots look good, my jungletrees mod is very old and is pre-voxelmanip, pre-perlinmaps so may be rather slow to generate, just so you know it's possible to hugely increase the speed of this with the latest features ...
EDIT
... see my recent 'rainforest' mod for how to do fast tree generation.
My 'jungletree' mod https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4626 is actually a lightly edited fork of Bas080's jungletree mod, i like his tree design and didnt change that http://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=2887

They mod models are probably CC BY-SA 3.0... They can also be found in the Lord of the Rings game viewtopic.php?f=15&t=5578, which is CC BY-SA. AspireMint made them.

It would be cool if glowing crystals could also be generated in caves.

Thanks! Yeah that is already part of my TODO list, other than on ground glow-forest biomes, i intend to add underground glow-caves biomes.

i strongly love this mod its very beautiful and deadly lol

however in this mod contains holy / cursed ore

the rest of the mod works but i cant seem to find this ore when looking underground

i use fast, fly and noclip to reach very far depths and i still cannot find any glow ore

is it as rare as a nyan cat block or do i need to activate something in the lua or am i just a dunce and cant find the ore lol

Find the model, textures, and LUA files for the monster and create a new mod using those. You will have to check on dependencies for the monster as well, as I don't know if it is using some other mob mod for it's base, or if it contains all the code needed.

I wanted to use the ent mob, and also update the mobs engine for it, so I forked and made the changes. For those interested: https://github.com/taikedz-mt/glowtest ; pull request submitted too

That version works same as fishyWET's but separates the glowtest biome code and the mobs into two mods. Mobs mod depends on mobs_redo.

EDIT: updated my url after move of repo

Does this mod work with mapgen v7?

I downloaded and tested this, the trees generate on v7 not entirely sure if its the way they are supposed to but it works. It has not been worked on for over 4 years. It would be cool to see development on this start up again. I may work on it if I get the free time.

This will always be my favorite mod.

Also, I can confirm it works with the Valleys mapgen, and probably V7, too!
