SimpleOreGen Mod 1.11.2, 1.10.2, 1.9.4 allow you to control the ore gen by the config file, spawn veins where you like, use some commands to clear terrain, count blocks, etc, and the best feature is that everything is configurable and very easy to use. You can also personalize the commands and the blocks to mine, with the help of a xml file (it will be generated with two examples – easy to understand). You can also flat the world.
- Flatworld: With this mod, you have an opinion in the config file that allows you to make the world flat or not. As easy as changing the true to false (or vice-versa). The first screenshot is with the value equals to false (not flat), and the second one is equals to true (flat).
- Clearblocks Command: The mod adds a command that clearblocks for you (according to the names in the xml file). As you can see, it clears the blocks that are selected in the xml file, inside the option that you selected (in this case it was the ores option that comes with the default file).
- Countblocks Command: Other functionally added was the countblocks command. If you choose ores, it will count all the blocks, but display some extra information about the number of ores that are in the area that you selected. If you don’t choose anything, it will just count the number of blocks that exist in that space.
- Spawnvein Command: One thing that many mods that can let you change the world gen dont have is a way that in-game you can add your own veins of a specific ore. With this command, you can set whatever you want in the world – and when I mean whatever you want I mean everything. You only need to give the y (the starting point), the size of the vein and the block (block registry name!), and the code do everything for you. It will spawn in your position, but with the y that you gave.
- Biome Selector: Sometimes, you simply want to vary where the ores/blocks spawn, right? This mod does that for you! You can simply choose the biome(s) and the code takes care of the rest. If you see the example in the bottom (check the blockoregen.xml), you can check that you only need to put a number and a name (not important tough) to identify the biome that you want to select. What if you don’t know the id? Don’t worry, the example brings all the biomes that exist in the game and you can simply check the list. What if you don’t know the name? Don’t worry, the name is only to help you on debugging. Imagine that you selected 0;Plains – 0 is for the Ocean, but you might have mistaken the ids, so the mod warns you; but don’t worry if you don’t know the exact name, only the id matters!
- Dimensions: A whole new topic. If you want to make a block spawn in other dimension (an anvil, endstone, etc), you can now do it. Pay attention because this is very hard to understand and you can easily miss one step and everything can be a little bit different from what you expected. The next image shows the code that I provide in the mod (in the config’s folder). In this case, the size and the number of tries are 0, so it won’t spawn anything. If you change them to a random number (for example, size is 20 and tries is 10), it will spawn in the dimensions -1 (Nether) and 0 (Overworld). Why? Antepenultimate line will tell the program that this block (minecraft:clay) can spawn in both dimensions. You can add or remove id’s from that part and the program will spawn in the correct dimensions. But, there are other things to take care: in the Nether you don’t have stone. So, what was made is in the blockMatcher part, you can set the different blocks (stone and netherrack in the example) that this block (clay) will spawn on. This was needed because each dimension can have different blocks (you don’t see end stone in the Nether, for example), so you can add or remove from this part. Other important thing: if the biome is not suitable to the block to spawn, it will not spawn (if you select dimension -1 and remove the biome 8 [Hell], it will not spawn in the Nether) – the Biomes are up in the hierarchy.
