What is Geocraft Mod
Geocraft Mod is a mod about geology from ores to new kinds of stone. The primary purpose of the mod is to achieve more realistic ore gen in Minecraft and adds new types of stone and cosmetic blocks based on them. Geocraft Mod makes it so your ores will no longer generate in clumps, rather, different ores spawn in different, configurable “mines,” from layers of coal to spidery metal veins, with support for many other mods that add ores and extensive configuration.
Here is a picture of all three forms of stone so far. Marble is on top, basalt in the middle and limestone on the bottom.
As said above, Geocraft Mod changes the way the game Minecraft generates its ores, allowing for actual mines instead of randomly distributed chunks. Instead of ores being generated in every single chunk, Geocraft will give each type of ore a chance to generate a “mine”. Each mine will then generate the veins that you see in normal minecraft. This means that ore will be grouped in certain locations rather than spread out evenly like in Vanilla. Right now the defaults are fairly light, but by going into the configs you can make ores much rarer and make the mines much larger. The mines aren’t just random clumps either, they follow structures, from spidery veins to layers, adding a new depth of complexity to mining. Also, by the defaults, you can find “trace mines” on the surface, these can be helpful in the early game.
