While I can't see it being my mod, as I don't do anything to cactus or spawn anything that could hurt you (and the few things I spawn show up). I also can't seem to recreate the invisible cacti problem. Maybe could be forge, I would imagine they would have fixed that by now. They are really good at fixing problems.
As a few clarification questions, are all the cacti invisible or just one or two? If its all of them it could be a corrupted terrain.png and the cacti texture is gone maybe?
When you say it happens without any of those mods, is that going from a full install and taking them out or going from a clean install and it breaks after installing my mod? Well that shoudn't matter, as if you ran it with one of the other mods without PZ it'd still be there if PZ wasn't the problem.
If you wouldn't mind, next time you run into one, jot down your seed and coordinates. Added it to known issues asking that if anyone else has the problem to let me know.
Love mammoths. Absolutely going to do add them. I was planning an elephant for a Savannah style biome eventually as well. I like the idea of a yeti/creature being temporarily tameable. Could be partnered with caves/structured so that you have to fight him/ or give him a gift. Could lend itself to some fun adventure scenarios.
Added new mod spotlight video courtesy of CoolFlamingPanda / JCJordan97. The video shows some things I'll need to look into.
I'm looking into aloe vera growth rates / making sure they actually grow. It is probability based to it is possible to take a long time.
The water blocks beneath aloe vera only drop water on their final stages. I'll consider how to make this more clear. Maybe water particle effects.
This was probably a nice demonstration of the bug MohawkyMagoo was reporting. It may be due to the cacti are not updating when oasis are spawned. Will investigate further.
I agree and like the look of those. I underestimated shading when I started. I started implementing more shading after I did the scale armor icons. Where it worked really well. Then of course I maybe went a little crazy with the water droplets and coconuts. Practice makes perfect.
Do you mind if I use those? Or if you want you can do up a texture pack and I can put a link to it.
If the oasis spawns creatures will spawn. I just checked and your right that they would not spawn on desertHills (I only added the desert spawn, oops). So that was probably the problem. Fixed it now and it'll be in my next update (tonight maybe?). Nothing I can do about non-vanilla biomes until they release unfortunately.
Ants have definetly crossed my mind. I was actually thinking a seperate biome/giant ant farm structure (but 3D of course). I'd have to dig into the cave gen code to see how to form the maze of caves. But it'd have worker ants, ant queen. Probably would remove the stone for dirt. Some kind of any custom goo/liquid or plant. Maybe slurm!
I'd also like to try and play with the pathfinding code to get ants to crawl on walls / maybe ceilings. But don't know how feasible that is.

If it didn't create a mods folder, this would hint at an incorrent install. (I just redid a server and it did create the folder). Where did you put it if it didn't create one? Did you try making the mods folder yourself? (Note: mods not mod)
What forge version/build are you using? What minecraft version?
for 1.2.5, use the earlier version/client mod
For the record this is a new mod and there are no pre-1.3 versions.
Edit: Also, please elaborate on "not working": crashing, not showing up, textures white.
I've managed to reproduce a similar error. Am investigating.
--- END ERROR REPORT 69c6bd8e ----------
I should add this is on the client. I played 1.2.6 then switch to 1.2.5 then to 1.2.6 spawns sandworm, then 1.2.5 then 1.2.6 to get the error.
Still getting menu problems? It happened on 0.2.5? Does anything in particular seem to trigger them, or was this just new to when you updated. So if you press esc --> F11 --> f11 --> it brings up the menu? But just pressing escape does nothing?
