[mod] Europa (moon of Jupiter) [europa_moon]

by Red_King_Cyclops » Post

Image

This mod replaces the default Minetest world with Europa, a moon of Jupiter.

A world created with this mod has four layers: ice crust, ocean, rocky mantle, and iron core. The ice crust is the uppermost layer and has ice instead of stone. The ocean is beneath the ice and consists of just water. The rocky mantle is beneath the ocean and contains all the ores from default. The iron core is beneath the rocky mantle and has steel blocks instead of stone.

Like my other mod, saturn_moon, dungeons are now covered with ice.

Unlike saturn_moon, I intend to do more with this mod. There is a large amount of potential content that comes with a setting on Europa, such as alien life forms that live in the ocean of Europa. Currently, this mod is a work in progress. For example, the volcanic vents on the bottom of the ocean have not been fully added yet, there are no aliens yet, and the surface does not yet have the craters.

Sorry, I made another accidental post. This should have been on the top: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=22112

Edit (to make use of this reply) 6/24/2019: Updating to 5.0.1 somehow broke the ocean floor.
Second edit: I created a stratum that restored the ocean floor

I do not know what the aliens would look like, so feel free to say any ideas.

Edit (to make use of this post) 11/2/2019: I realized possibly why there are no real ice caves-- the ice might be treated as a dirt-like node instead of a stone-like node. In other words, default ice is not ground content and thus is not treated as such.
