Sparcs Tweaks (rev 12) for Minecraft 1.5.2 by SparcMan (updated 6/12/13)

Are you tired of boring dungeons with even more boring loot?
Do you want more variety in mineshaft and stronghold loot?
Do you wish sometimes you'd get something useful from digging through mounds and mounds of dirt?
Do you wish a chance to recover some of that glass you placed?
Do you want to be able to put torches on the back of stairs?
If the answer to any of these questions was "yes" then SparcsTweaks is the Mod for you.
This is a minimalist mod that only tweaks a few key features of the game to make it a bit more rewarding and exciting.

Download Rev 12 of Sparcs Tweaks for 1.5.2 Here! (non-Forge version)

The changes made by this mod are as follows:

World tweaks:
- Added a 1% chance of finding a bone when breaking dirt/grass blocks (up to about
  50% with Fortune III enchantment)
- Increased chance of finding flint to 12.5% when breaking gravel blocks
- Dungeon spawners are an equal chance of Zombie, Skeleton or Spider (formerly 50%
  chance of Zombie spawner)
- Added a 10% chance of recovering a glass when broken (both blocks and
  panes now)
- Added mineshaft loot
- Added items to stronghold loft loot: bow, arrows, and diamond sword
- Added items to stronghold library loot: paintings, blaze rod, ghast tear,
  netherwart, glass bottles and netherquartz
- Spider spawners in dungeons carry a 10% chance of being a cave spider spawner
  instead of a normal spider
- Dungeons now have a 1/10 chance of having a creeper spawner (approach with
  caution... and armor!)
- You can attach torches to the back of stairs (including inverse stairs)
- EnderPearl drops increased by 1 (1-3 normally rather than 0-2)
- Added smelting of rotten flesh into leather
- Water buckets work in the Nether, but lava evaporates water
- Endermen also drop the block they are carrying
- Witch huts contain a chest with random potions and ingredients
- Cave spider spawners in mineshafts reduced by nearly 1/2
- Chicken drop feathers randomly

Dungeon treasure:
- increased quantity of items in chest
- Decreased chances of finding a saddle (don't you have enough already?)
- Possible iron stack size doubled
- Wheat stack maximum size increased from 3 to 6 pieces (but still can find more than one stack)
- If found, cocoa beans quantity increased drastically
- Several new items added:
- - gold ingots
- - diamonds
- - lapis
- - red apples
- - bones
- - lightstone dust
- - bow
- - arrows
- - diamond sword
- - books
- - chain armor
- - diamond armor
- - slime balls
- - watermelon seeds
- - pumpkin seeds
- - compass
- - clock
- - chicken eggs
- - 9 more music disks (plus improved chance of finding one)
- - small chance that bow, armor or diamond sword are enchanted
- - random enchanted shovels, axes and pickaxes (wood, stone, gold, iron, diamond)
- - random potions! Includes potions not brewable!
- - Bottles o Enchantment (very rare)
- - Fire charges
- - Emeralds
- - potatoes
- - carrots
- - netherquartz

Mineshaft treasure added:
- - minecarts
- - storage minecarts
- - torches
- - powered rails
- - detector rails
- - smooth stone
- - hoppers
- - hopper carts

Installation:
- To install, locate your minecraft.jar file.
- It should be at %AppData%\.minecraft\bin (for all Windows users)
- Tip: You can go to Start -&--#62; Run and type in %AppData%\.minecraft\bin to jump straight to this folder
- You should probably copy this file elsewhere in case you want to go back to the original
- Rename the file to add a ".zip" to the end (you may have to change your folder settings to unhide file extensions)
- Open the file in WinZip or whatever compressed utility you use
- Add the class files from this archive to the opened minecraft file (drag and drop usually works)
- The files MANIFEST.MF, MOJANG_C.DSA and MOJANG_C.SF (in the META-INF folder) must be deleted!
- Close the file, saving changes if needed.
- Rename the file back to minecraft.jar and run Minecraft to enjoy the mod!

FAQ:
- Q: I found a dungeon but it just had the normal old loot.
- A: If you're playing on a map you started before installing the mod, any dungeons already generated will not be updated - travel to a new area for new loot or start a new map. Also, you may just be unlucky and the dungeon generated just happened to contain only original loot items.

- Q: Can I use this mod with others?
- A: If you load this mod before any other mods, it should remove any compatility issues but conflicting features of this mod will be missing.

- Q: Will this mod work with ModLoader?
- A: I tested it with ModLoader and there are no direct conflicts. It may still conflict with specific mods.

- Q: The game crashes when I try to cook something in a furnace and I can't load that world anymore
- A: You're probably using the standalone version of the mod with Forge installed. Use the Forge version instead.

- Q: I installed this mod and Minecraft just blackscreened right away.
- A: Either another mod is conflicting or you didn't remove the files MANIFEST.MF, MOJANG_C.DSA and MOJANG_C.SF which are in the META-INF folder of the minecraft.jar

EDIT: Yup, Blackscreened. You should really improve this.

You probably didn't remove the MANIFEST.MF, MOJANG_C.DSA and MOJANG_C.SF files (in the META-INF folder) from minecraft.jar - You will blackscreen if they're present. This mod works fine on every computer I've tried it on.

- Q: Can I use this mod with others?
- A: Probably not. This mod is intended to be a standalone mod and is likely to conflict with others unless none of the class files are the same.

- Q: Can I get a version of the mod without {insert feature here}?
- A: I'm not planning to release this mod with a custom selection of features.

Wow, bummer. Hope you change your mind at some point.

You do understand all of the tweaks are standalone, I believe.
So you dont have to use them all, which Is why I asked before "Which Class is for each mod."

Because Having the Dirt drop bone tweak, the dungeon tweak, and a few others, would be nice as the rest of them are not needed.

That's not it. I always delete the META folder. ALWAYS.

Yeah I guess it's because it's not ML compatible yet. I'll probably work on that next.

I absolutely love this mod. Are you going to be updating it for the 1.5 update or will it still function correctly with it? Thanks.
