I can do it, Jeff.
I'm a fan of your mod, I have enthusiasm, and I keep learning Java and Minecraft modding.
I don't yet understand fully how this mod's worldgen part works, but I'm willing to figure it out and it's just a matter of some time.
Strong common sense, critical approach, and my girlfriend who is a geologist will surely help me in this.
That would be great! I can help you with any issues you have getting your head around it. The code is a bit messy in places as I was always meaning to fix it up but I could never find the time. Thank you so much for this! I will PM you so we can talk about what needs to be done
Jun 2, 2013Exterminator_Jeff posted a message on [1.6.x/1.5.x/1.4.7] Underground Biomes (Forge, SMP compatible)Developer Wanted!Posted in: Minecraft Mods
I'm looking for someone who is interesting in taking over the development and maintenance of Underground Biomes. I am finding that I just don't have enough time to manage this anymore and as a result I don't think I can deliver the fixes and features that are required.
I don't want to just leave this with no support of future but I can't continue to provide that. If anyone is interested in taking over please let me know here or via PM. I won't be disappearing so I can help with any questions or issues that come up while a new person is getting to grips with the code. It's fairly simple so it shouldn't be too hard to learn.

One word. Awesome.

I have a question: what's the blast resistance of your rocks? ICBM mining explosions seem to not break them and that's a bit wrong...
I corrected them not long ago seeing as they weren't set at all but I can't recall of the top of my head. They are definitely working correctly with vanilla explosions though.

I liked the mod, so I have done a review on it, is in Spanish but still will serve many people, if you could put it at the top for all the people seeing him would be great.
Thanks! I'll add it to the OP!
Quote from Machuis
When this is put together with EBXL v4, will you still continue the mod by its self?
I'm actually going to try and find someone else to take over development and maintenance of this which I will detail in a post below

i have a 2 questions one are the stones correctly in the oredictionary? (for redpower2 basalt and marble)
is there a way to remove certain ones (basalt and marble)
could i make it generate redpower2 basalt and marble instead of this mods basalt and marble
oh one more suggestion you should edit vanilla cobblestone to be called "mixed cobblestone" and "mixed cobblestone stairs/slab" etc. i edited my lang folder to do this it really made the game feel better XD
It might be possible to add config settings for each block's ore dictionary entry but it would make the config file quite large. Interesting idea for renaming the vanilla stone types! I hadn't thought of that!
Jun 1, 2013Exterminator_Jeff posted a message on [1.6.x/1.5.x/1.4.7] Underground Biomes (Forge, SMP compatible)I'm working on fixes for these issues and I'm getting quite confused about what's causing them. It seems certain chunks are not saving the changes to blocks that I make. These seem to occur in bunches. I am almost certain that the code is being run correctly but it seems like sometimes it just doesn't actually do what it is supposed to. If anyone has any ideas I am running out of things to check! I am wondering if there was a Forge change or something in regards to chunk loading seeing as this problem only started with the release of 1.5Posted in: Minecraft Mods

by this do you mean it is still reversed, or that it always generates?
edit, also do you have an ETA for the fix? I had started a world, but i love all the new stone, and there is so much vanilla stone
It should just still be reversed. I'm not sure why so much vanilla stone generates with the new option. I might look at reducing the number of vanilla stone biomes but that would affect the biome generation of all world I would expect.
I can aim to have a fix out by the start of the weekend. It's pretty simple on its own by I want to try and get a bit more into a release to make it worth it for people to update!

<smile> I just realized: I can actually get Custom Ore Generation to remove your stuff from the overworld.
Not sure how to handle twilight forest yet (will experiment), but that gives you the underground in mystcraft ages.
Awesome I'll still try and get that config option in the next release for you. I wonder if the Twilight Forest world has some sort of unique identifier that I could use to disable that?

Hi Exterminator Jeff, I supported Underground Biomes in my mod that lets it interact with other mods.
What it does:
If Equivalent Exchange 3 is installed, Minium stone transmutes Underground Biomes stones in cycle, uncooks stone to cobble, converts igneous/metamorphic stone and flint block to vanilla flint, joins slabs and uncrafts anthracite block to 4 coal.
If Thaumcraft is installed, Underground Biomes stone and items will have properly assigned aura aspects.
Wow nice job! I've always wanted add support for some other mods but I've never had the time! I'll add it
to the OP!
Hm, just tried both, but they both had normal stone at spawn? weird I finally got my modpack working and then i cant figure this out
I haven't released a new version yet so the issue is still there sorry. Vanilla stone does seem to be super common as a result of the change but the other stone should still be generating.
Quote from Keybounce
Meanwhile, getting back to what I asked back on the 4th or so:
0. Thank you for getting the bugfixes into 1.4.7.
1. Permission to use in a private modpack please? (FTB people insist).
2. Is the current version able to ignore the overworld? (If not, when?)
Sorry I forgot to respond! Permission granted! I can add that for the next release although anything more than just disabling generation on the overworld could be a bit more difficult.

I have verified that it is enabled. I have also tried all the different types of cobble to make the stone gears and still not luck if there is any kind of log file I can send you or something I would love to get this mod working I love the different types of stone
I'm on a highly modified 1.5.2 basically includes all the FTB mods and the universal electricity mods
It sounds as though something to do with the way Ore Dictionary stuff works has changed so I'll see if I can find out what and get that fixed.
Quote from DrakeBD
Love the prospect of this mod shame I could not try it although I cant wait for it to be part of ExtraBiomes XL then we can support it with a texture pack addon.
That would be great I've always wanted to do a higher resolution pack but I've never had the time.

Hello, I am getting the funky Conflict with IC2 that has been posted a few times here.
2013-05-23 12:22:08 [SEVERE] [ForgeModLoader] Caught exception from UndergroundBiomes
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Slot 250 is already occupied by [email protected] when adding exterminatorJeff.undergroundBiomes.common.block.BlockIgneousStone@7c65f07
I know I need to change the block value, and I know which config I need to change, however I am not sure of a decent block range to change it to.
Igneous Stone is 250
Metamorphic stone is 251
Sedimentary Stone is 252
Ultimately I would like to change all of these to a range that won't conflict as I foresee all of them being an issue, and 250 just happening to be the first one that popped, thereby causing the crash.
if I were to set them to 3000-3002, would that be sufficiently high enough?
You can change it to anything less than 4096. The reason they are currently set to less than 256 is because when I first made the mod they had to be in order to be placed during world gen. When I redid the way the blocks were placed this requirement went away but I've left the IDs the same for compatibility reasons. I would really like to change them to something that wont conflict but I'm just worried that that could screw up a few people's worlds if they didn't realise and didn't have a saved config for whatever reason.
Quote from Raidn_X
Random off the wall question, not sure if you've looked into the new snapshot or not, but they are adding a block of coal, as in a block similar to iron block, gold block, etc... do you think this will over-ride the need for anthracite blocks?
I might seeing as they are basically the same. They even look kind of similar so there's probably not much point leaving it in. Although can the coal storage block be burnt in a furnace?

I was just using the mod and had an issue with making stone gears is there a way to make this mod compatible with crafting recipes of other mods or is there a way to convert the various cobbles to vanilla
The "Modify all recipes to include Underground Biomes blocks" config option is supposed to do this and has worked for Buildcraft in the past. Can you confirm that this config option is turned on? If it is and the recipe still isn't working then there is a problem.
Quote from BatmanTubs
This make me really happy. Good work. If I may make some suggestions for future updates, I think that dolomite would be a nice touch as well as creating the fossiliferous forms of that and limestone. Maybe some micrites? Something I don't like about the textures is how you cant really see crystals for the igneous rocks. Granted this is minecraft and is not known for graphics quality, it is still something that could improve the realism of the mod. One more touch that I think would be pretty neat is if when breaking an aquifer block, there was a small chance to create a water block in its place. Still great work. Keep it up!!
I like your aquifer idea! That's definitely a possibility. Regarding the textures it is really difficult to get a nice amount of detail without making things look too busy. It would be possible with a higher resolution texture pack but unfortunately that's something that I just don't have time for. I would like to add / change some of the rocks at some point. Some of them aren't the best (epidote isn't even a rock!) so dolomite would be interesting although I would still need another igneous type to replace epidote.
Does the 0.3.6 version also work with 1.5.1?
Unfortunately not. It is close enough that you can start the game just fine but it will give an error when you try to load a world.

I still haven't decided yet but I don't think it would be too hard to do so if there's enough demand for that then probably. EBXL v4 will be significantly different from EBXL v3 and BOP so we'll have to wait and see

I have a similar set of mods and also noticed this issue. My TE config was set to replace vanilla ore generation from the start (prior to generating the world) and I noticed a significant decrease in ore spawning. That's actually the reason I came to check the forums - to see if anyone else had noticed as well.
Removing Underground Biomes without any changes to other configs resulted in a new world generated with proper ore spawning. Not sure if there's an interaction between TE and Underground Biomes that's unintended.
Quote from southernfriedbb
Hmmm, weird, I noticed the opposite, My oregen was squirrely until I turned on the non-vanilla oregen. I haven't had much of a chance to test it extensively yet. Probably will later tonight. I do know that the CoFH world gen is a relatively new addition to the mod, so, maybe an interaction between the two isn't out of the question.
Hmm this sounds like it could be a tricky issue to figure out. I'm hoping that when I rewrite most of this that things like this will fix themselves!
I am not seeming to be able to find any underground biome, i started a new world (with BOP) and i cant find any of them
Have you tried multiple worlds? By default there are biomes made of vanilla stone so it might take a while to find a biome with the UB stone

Just a note, I too have experienced the ore gen issue as well.
if it helps, world generation mods installed:
biomes 'o' plenty
Also, is version 0.3.6, for MC 1.5.2 only?
Thanks that might make it easier to track down whats causing that!
Quote from Greylocke
When I turn that off, then the 1x3 pattern gives me slabs.
Should I leave this off? I have no idea what else it would affect. Right now this is just a test environment anyway... so no big deal.
It's there to try a convert other mods recipes that don't use the ore dictionary to use ore dictionary versions. I guess somewhere along the way it's thinking that a recipe for slabs is actually a recipe for stone. I'll see if I can replicate it and fix it
Quote from Ellybelly360
I made you and over view video for your mod I hope you like it. I love the mod btw.
Nice job! Thanks!
Quote from Civmaster
Hey Jeff, I heard a rumor that your mod was merging with ExtraBiomes XL. Is there any truth to that?
That's correct. I'm actually the lead developer for the next version of ExtraBiomes XL
