Alright here is the situation.

I recently started messing around with superflat presets. A preset already in minecraft is the Tunnelers dream. I LOVE it. But, I've got a slight problem.

The landscape is alright, but I cannot find any ores until I'm at y=128 (or something like that). Why is there no coal/iron ore above it? And is this fixable?

Is it because of the higher limit since a couple of versions?

I don't think ores are coded to spawn that high.

Unless the rules have changed, or are different for these new superflat worlds than they are for default, coal doesn't spawn above 128 and iron doesn't spawn above level 63, I think it is.  How deep is the tunneler's dream preset?

Ground level is 235 in this preset.

So they will not appear above 128/63 etc. Alright, seems fair. But is there a way to change it?

To change it when you make the preset and see the bar on top delete the number 230 and right however high you want it to be, i think 80 is a reasonable number

I made a mod that creates a 256 high cave dimension and faced a similar dilemma on how the ores should spawn, it is not much use to have 256 high cave system if all you do is mine the diamond layer so i am thinking that ores and such should not be Y limited.
