[WIP] dense_ores Denser ores for deeper depths

by scottvee » Fri Jan 13, 2017 08:51

Hi. This is a fairly basic mod, adding new blocks and colors for your deepest caves.

The mod adds three tiers of new blocks: Deep, Dense and Ultra Dense. The blocks affected are Stone, Coal Ore, Copper Ore, Diamond ore, Iron Ore.

Deep, Dense and Ultra Dense stone can be crafted into 2, 3 and 4 regular stone, or used as decorative blocks in their own right.

Deep Ores drop 2 lumps of ore.
Dense Ores drop 3 lumps of ore.
Ultra Dense Ores drop 4 lumps of ore.

The textures are original, based on a 32x32 update of the default:stone texture with color mapping. It took a while to settle on the colors I wanted. I also did some 32x32 tweaking of the ore layer textures with some rotations to create some striking new patterns. The colors are subtle, and in a poorly lit cave you might walk right past Deep and Dense ores. I didn't want them to be glaringly obvious. Ultra Dense stone and ores are a pale maroon color and quite a bit easier to spot.

These new stone blocks spawn from -200y all the way down to the bottom of the world. They are uncommon to fairly rare, and the ores that spawn within them are even more rare, but I hope they give some color and some variety, and some bonus ores as you explore down there. ;-)

Download: https://github.com/scottvee/dense_ores/ ... master.zip
Just unzip the zip file into your Minetest/mods folder to install the mod.

There is now a config file where you can turn on/off tiers of stone and ores, or tweak their rarity in the world.

Testing some newer, handmade dense ore textures. The old way with the rotations just came out weird.

Had some fun testing and tweaking the oregen. Also added a config file to set the rarity of the stones and ores to fit you world's needs. Update coming soon.

I like the idea of that it seems to represent the atmospheric pressure of going deep underground
