The only crucial parameters are density parameters, ChunkTryProb and TriesPerChunk. Set ChunkTryProb to 1.0, and set TriesPerChunk to somewhere in the single digits. Don't set it crazy high because generation will definitely start to take a long time. I also use WallHeight:1 or WallHeight:0 which turns the walls into streets. Other than that it is a matter of taste!
If you want to try to do something, check out the settings file first. A lot of people are asking for things that are already available by changing the settings =P.
Here are the settings I used to create the first picture in the OP:
<-README: put this file in the main minecraft folder->
<-ChunkTryProb Controls how likely walls are to appear. Should be between 0.0 and 1.0. Lower to make less common->
<-TriesPerChunk allows multiple attempts per chunk. Only change from 1 if you want very dense walls!->
<-Smooth1 and Smooth2 control concave and convex smoothing respectively.>
<-Backtrack - length of backtracking if a dead end is hit>
<-CurveBias - strength of the bias towards curvier walls. Should be greater than 0.0. >
<-LengthBiasNorm - wall length at which there is no penalty for generation>
<-CircularProb - probability of having a circular tower>
<-MobProb - probability of having mobs in a sandstone/cobblestone tower>
<-Relative weights that a given material type will be used->
I do have a question/problem, though... I've changed the GreatWallModSettings.txt several times, even started a new world each time, but I always get the same thing: Great Walls, but no cities. I just tried copying the text (a couple posts up) that said it was the settings for the city in the OP, but I still only get walls, no cities.
I have the text file located in my main Minecraft directory, not the bin or the jar... that is correct, right?
Thank you both for the feed back! I have yet to try out Minecolony, but Millenaire lets me do sorta quests, I guess. And with Optimine, it keeps my FPS relatively the same. But yeah, thanks, I'll be sure to try and work them together. :happy.gif:
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
I love how people support such unfunny Youtubers who contribute nothing of value to a community. Also, I'm badass, deal with it.
I just wanted to say to the mod dev here, I am not using this mod yet but it is one I am watching VERY closely and am extremely interested in. I hope you keep updating and tweaking out the oddities. Just don't burn yourself out :wink.gif:
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
This mod is causing my client to freeze and display a black screen immediately when it opens (Just before the Mojang title screen should show up, after you launch it from the tumblr update applet). This is on a clean jar (Except for Modloader)
