What is Transsib Mod
Transsib Mod builds a rails network at sea level (y=63) (default, configurable) in grid pattern every 16 chunks (default, configurable).
In case you want the rails to be subway-style, it is suggested to set “depth” setting to 50-55, to make sure it can safely go under small lakes and in general be more safe from surface mobs.
The mod will avoid placing tunnels in water or lava. If there’s no solid block for rails, it’ll place cobblestone as a base. Every ~10 (configurable) blocks a lit pumpkin will be placed for lighting the tunnel. Also, every 11 blocks there will be booster tracks placed. Also you are recommended to use Terracart Mod: it’s a cart that needs no booster tracks and there is no need to carry a minecart with you – just right-click on tracks and you’re on!
There is a slab to stop your cart on each rail crossing. If you wish to have it a bit more complex, then it’s up to you. If the crossing is underground, there will be a pumpkin lamp placed on top on the ground, so you can easily find it when searching for nearest track.
Note: To those who ask how tunnels are generated: if X_coord == 0 || (X_coord % (frequency * 16) == 0) then tunnel is generated at X_coord + 8, same goes for Z_coord. Depth stands for Y_coord.
