It really depends on at what point the player is supposed to gain access to the trees during their progression. If you simply need gold, coal, diamond and iron you introduce it to the early game. Since you don't need to have any diamond equipment to have the trees. However, if you make the recipe require something from the Nether then you inherently intend it as a mid to late game feature since access to the Nether requires a diamond pickaxe and obsidian. If it is intended for a late game addition then you should have it require something from The End, such as enderstone.
The fact that the oretrees need a significant quantity of resources however tend to mean it needs to be a mid to late game. Since once you get to the Nether you are now starting to burn through iron at a rapid pace since you now ideally need iron armor and weapons for suriving long in the Nether. So it would make sense that glowstone is a critical ingredient.
You cant say that its early game thing because yiu need lot of resource to make trees itself. I like end idea will think about that
Great idea for the transformer! Maybe the recipe could be 1 slimeball surrounded by (clockwise from the top) 1 coal, 1 iron, 1 gold, and 1 diamond.
(Pretend the bowl is a slimeball.)
I also think it would be cool to add planks based on the ore, like Iron Planks which are white, Golden Planks, and Diamond Planks.
Maybe even make the planks have different fuel powers based on the type! I can think of a lot of ideas from this.
This is what i lime about forums. You make mod with idea and when people help you to grow it. Nice idea i may change recipe and planks would be cool. Thanks for idea will think about that
Just had a few more ideas: Iron Plank recipe for Iron Door (to make it cheaper), and Gold/Diamond Doors made from their material, OR the planks like the Iron Door.
The Gold and Diamond Doors would work like the Iron one, except Gold works only with a high-signal and Diamond with a low-signal.
You cant say that it would be cheaper because if you read close you need blocks of iron for making saplings (also blocks of gold and coal and redstone you only need diamonds because its hard to find it )
is it possible to have just the gen (generation in world) without the saplings? so it's just 1 time only per tree? that way I think would be awesome (will test if it has any configs for that but just saying if not)
edit: could you provide some other download? this one doesn't work for me
i'm not doing world gen because it would be too hard to find if there was only one tree and so on... about link ill pm you
istead of adding new trees to world gen you could check for vanilla trees and add chance let's say configurable in config but default 3% that instead of vanilla tree it will be yours. (that is how pam's harvestcraft trees works) you can check how pam's did it
thanks for link but I though it's a world gen thing, and if it's not then it's not for me.. ( don't really want to have endless ores )
welcome about link but mod is a mod and i worked hard and still working so i dont think that ill do that
I think you should add other trees that are not just ores like glowstone dust, ender pearl, blaze rod, and maybe mod ores like copper, tin,uranium etc...
and can you make a config option to make it less OP like give you shards of the material and 9 shards makes the material.
i haven't looked in configs of mods but if i'll figure it out, i may do it. and i don't know how to integrate other mods like thermal expansion or galacticraft or other mods that adds ores and stuff. as i said if i will figure it out good idea!
