[MOD 0.12.x] Ore Expansion

Post by Rseding91 »

Description: this makes ore denser the further from spawn you go. It's meant to encourage exploring deep into biter land instead of just sitting < 1000 tiles from the spawn the entire game. It should work with any mod-added ore without any changes required.

Every 3500 distance from spawn (roughly 109 chunks) the ore density doubles. You can change the rate it doubles in the control.lua file - just change 3500 to how ever many tiles you want it to double after. The ore rate scales as the distance does (it's not 1x ore at 3499 and then 2x at 3500).


Note: it doesn't effect existing generated ore (only new chunks after it's added) and there's no way to reverse the effect so removing the mod just makes future ore gen the standard density.

How does it integrate with RSO?

AFAIK you are looking for interesting effects if you try :D Or plain nothing since there will be no ore to modify if mod triggers before RSO.
RSO supports increasing density from config file.

To me, this mod sounds more reasonable then what I've seen about RSO, but that remains to be seen... :geek:

3500 is very far if you expand in a circle around your spawn. But I guess targeted expansion in one direction might make it more useful.

EDIT: Never mind, I misunderstood the math. Chalk it up to it being before noon when I attempted to do anything useful. :D

Getting the following error when starting a new game with the mod turned on;

"_ _Ore Expansion_ _/control.lua:3: attempt to index global 'game' (a nil value)"

hope someone can help.

You downloaded the wrong version. You want the one for 0.12 and higher.

Edit: I removed the old version download as it wasn't needed anymore.

since u said it doesnt affect already generated ressources... does it affect old games when i discover new chunks?

So don't use version 1.0.1 :P That's an old version - the download page on the front doesn't even list that as an option - where did you get it from?
