Cubic Chunks: (ModLoader compatible) (Minecraft Forge V1.0.6 compatible)
The sky is the limit in Minecraft, literally. So is Bedrock. Well, not any more. Introducing Cubic Chunks Mod!
Here is a thread with lots of CC pics.
Here is a thread that has a few CC videos. (More coming soon)
A handful of pics:
If you want an example of what can be done with Cubic Chunks, check out ModernCraft City by nadine.
This mod overwrites these files. (Note: this is an old list; I need to update it sometime.) This mod should be compatible with most mods, so long as they don't modify terrain generation or chunks. CoordsInfoMod is included with this mod, but you can ignore it if you want to.
If you find any bugs, please post or PM me the crash report and what you were doing at the time. If Minecraft blackscreens and you can't see the crash report, go to your minecraft folder, and look for a file named "CubicChunksErrorFile.txt". That file should contain your crash report.
MineCrak wrote a tutorial thread that contains lots of info on exactly how to install Cubic Chunks. If you're having installation problems, try his thread before posting.
NOTE: make backups of your worlds! This mod automatically converts standard Minecraft worlds and YMod worlds (turning Bedrock in the bottom 16 blocks to Stone) and Cubic Chunks V1.0 and V1.2 worlds to Cubic Chunks V1.3+ format whenever you load them, but you can only convert worlds back to non-Cubic Chunks format by using my reverse-converter tool, which has occasional glitches. If you find any errors in my converter tool, post or PM them to me.
Anyone who wants to can re-write my world generation code, and post their re-writes. Also, anyone who wants to may make mods based off of Cubic Chunks, as long as they give me credit.
Tall grass sometimes fails to render. This can be fixed by updating nearby blocks, or saving and reloading. Priority: low.
Rain / snow behave wierdly above y=128. Priority: low.
Recently, a handful of chunk holes have been seen (even one by me). Priority: med/high.
CubicChunkMod V1.5.1 (Beta1.7.3)
(If you also use ModLoader and/or Forge, you will have to install them first)
Client CubicChunksMod V1.5.3 test version 5 (Beta1.8.1) - this is 99% updated/debugged, but it still requires ModLoader and Forge 1.1.1 (Forge 1.1.2 may also work)!!!
Client CubicChunksMod V1.5.4 test version 5 (Minecraft 1.0.0) - works, but extra incompatibilities, and Strongholds don't always work. It requires ModLoader, and is not (yet) Forge compatible. Also some people have been reporting lots of ConcurrentModificationExceptions...
Alternative MediaFire Link - Client CubicChunksMod V1.5.4 test version 5 (Minecraft 1.0.0)
MC1.0.1 SMP test version (fairly stable as far as I can see):
Server CubicChunksMod V1.5.4 test version 7 (Minecraft 1.0.1) - works, most known errors fixed; generating Strongholds will sometimes throw server-side ConcurrentModificationExceptions.
-Alternative MediaFire Link
Old SMP test version (this is fairly buggy, you have been warned!):
Server CubicChunksMod V1.4.5 (B1.7.3)
Old Cubic Terrain Generation test version (this should mostly work, but it just might do unexpected things like generating caves over your house, and it includes improved ChunkCubeAir saving, which won't be compatible with previous versions of CC until I add a patch to them. You have been warned!):
Client CubicChunksMod V1.5.2 Test version 3 (B1.7.3)
I will update this to 1.2.3, but it is a huge mod, so give me some time...
4096BlockIDs: (Requires ModLoader and Forge)
NOTE: After MC 1.2.5, I am no longer planning to maintain this mod. I have released the source code (see Developer Notes below), and I hereby give permission (and, in fact, thanks) for anyone to do whatever they like with the 4096IDs source code, so long as they give my code credit.
Moved to a new thread.
Creative Item Adding API: (Requires ModLoader)
This API allows modders to build mods that add Items to the Creative GUI:
This is compatible with CreativeAPI_1.0.0 as long as you install this after the CreativeAPI, as well as any Creative GUI API that does not modify afp.class. It also includes a minor change for my 4096 BlockIDs patch.
UPDATE: Forge added something similar to this, so no point in my maintaining this.
Download CreativeItemAdding API V1.0.0 for Minecraft 1.0.0
SaveConverter: (Works no matter what Minecraft version you use! No dependencies!)
This is a standalone tool with readme and GUI to convert between Cubic Chunks worlds, YMod worlds, Vanilla Minecraft worlds, and Beta1.9+ExtendedHeight worlds.
The ExtendedHeight format conversion should now work.
New Feature: NBTViewer mode lets you explore level.dat files, data files, and YMod/Pre-McRegion save files from a dev's eye view!

SandStoneConversionMod: (requires ModLoader)
If you find tons of SandStone (say, in Cubic Chunks ), and want some sand instead, this mod allows you to convert SandStone into 4 sand.

Robinton's Mob Mod: (requires Cubic Chunks Mod)
As a joke, I've created an NPC named "Robinton". He's sort of like Herobrine for Cubic Chunks. He occasionally spawns when you're attacked, never attacks you, wanders around aimlessly killing hostile mobs, greatly resents being attacked (except with fire, for which he'll occasionally give you red apples), and vanishes as soon as you re-load the world.

Shaped Charges: (requires ModLoader)
Have you ever gotten tired quarrying? Have you ever wished for a way to make TNT more controlled, without destroying 2/3 of the item drops, with perhaps a little extra power (or maybe a lot of extra power)?
Enter Shaped Charges. Shaped Charges are crafted from three TNT in a column. Expensive, you say. True, but, each Shaped Charge blows a 1x1 collumn from bedrock to the sky! No item drops are destroyed! (Try to stay away from the blocks you hit, it is a very controlled explosion, but it can still hurt you.)
20X20 Quarries in minutes!
A quarry I dug with this mod (in 1.2_02, but it still works the same):
Nice Items Lots of Cobble!
I also made the mod automatically compact all Cobblestone produced into one lag-reducing ItemStack
Shaped Charges Mod even has a video about it. (See post 19 on this thread) Thanks GerMinecrafter!

VolcanoMod: (requires ModLoader)
There is a GetSatisfaction thread on getting Volcanoes added to Minecraft, so I thought I would build my own...
As you can see, while the lava is a little blocky, it works!
(You can craft Volcano Source blocks until I add Volcanoes to Terrain Generation):
Volcanoes Erupt, Recede, cool lava in their vicinity into cobble gravel and ores, create earthquakes (beware of putting precarious structures near Volcanoes), and fire LavaBombs! LavaBombs fly through the air and create a small explosion and a VolcanoLava block wherever they hit. VolcanoLava that cools down (usually when the Volcano Recedes, but also from the LavaBombs) turns into random ores: Coal, Iron, Gold, Diamond, Redstone, Lazuli, Burning Netherrack!, lots of Cobblestone, and lots of Gravel.
(The mossy cobblestone in the picture is because of a MossyCobbleSpreads partial mod I made... until I saw someone else already made one.)
Use FlowingWater algorithms for VolcanoLava (no more blockiness!) (added in 0.80 test)
Improve VolcanoBomb texture/sounds?
Add Volcanoes to Map Generation
Fix any glitches that show up

Have you ever wanted to know what it would feel like to be (more or less) Noah? With the water nearly to the clouds, only a handfull of small islands to live (or spawn) on, and trees and resources very scarce? Enter FloodMod!
Mining is dangerous! Who knows when you might tunnel out into the depths of the sea! But you can build unbeatable back doors to your base:
Look! A wall of water! Well, as Notch has messed up terrain generation compatibility before, I guess I don't feel too bad doing the same:
At least it is compatible (with wierd chunk transitions) with regular Minecraft.
Just don't generate side-by-side chunks with this mod on and off with BetterWater active:
your framerate will drop to approximately 0.02 FPS! (I guess BetterWater doesn't handle massive Tidal Waves well, does it...)
I also added a Server version, but I'm not in a position to test it thoroughly, so let me know if any bugs show up.
By the way, this mod is not compatible with my Cubic Chunks Mod, however, can mimic Flood effects by setting the CC water level to something extraordinarily high.
I once, in an older version, had a glitch where Minecraft wouldn't generate a new map with this mod active. I suspect this is linked to the game having to find a spawnpoint. Fix if this glitch ever repeats.
Ryth asked me for this mod, and gave me the idea for it.
Studying BiomeTerrainMod helped me figure out how to make this mod. Thanks!
You may be able to create a set of BiomeTerrainMod options to mimic the effect of this mod (set WaterLevel to 90).
This is not Cubic Chunks compatible, but the newer versions of CC can do the same thing, by dramatically increasing the WaterLevel option.

I was getting annoyed at the debug screen: it uses too much screen space for just getting my current coordinates. Then, half the time, the lag indicator goes up so high I can't see my coordinates, anyway! So, I created a mod for it:
Just press F4 to enter the condensed debug screen. Cheers.

I was testing out my Cubic Chunks mod, and I needed a way to quickly find the underground ores. I had also been thinking over the code I used to remove bedrock. The result:
A mod that makes smoothstone disappear whenever you load a chunk. It's compatible with Vanilla, Cubic Chunks, and pretty much anything else. To install, copy the .class file into your minecraft.jar file. If you want to see much better in the dark, also copy the .class file from within the "LightAll" folder to your minecraft.jar (copy the class, not the folder).
NOTE: this change is permanent, and cannot be reversed! BACK UP YOUR WORLDS!!!
