  • /lods list deposits - shows the list of all availiable deposits in the chat (config name = deposit name)
  • /lods list generated - logs the list of generated deposits with their coords (only for loaded chunks)
  • /lods locate configs - opens the mod's config folder
  • /lods add <deposit> <rarity> <minSize_maxSize> <minAltitude_maxAltitude> - defines a new deposit and creates a config for it (e.g. /lods add vibranium 2000 300_600 4_16). In version 1.12 use hyphen ( - ) instead of underscore ( _ )
  • /lods addspec - does the same as above, but allows specifying the exact ore ID (e.g. /lods addspec amethyst 3400 200_400 4_16 oresabovediamonds:amethyst_ore)
  • /lods remove <deposit> - removes definition of specified deposit and its config
  • /lods reload - reloads all configs (no need to restart the game after making some changes)
  • /lods gen <deposit> - generates ore deposit in the current chunk with parameters from the config
  • /lods genat <posX> <posZ> <deposit> - generates ore deposit at the specified position
  • /lods test <deposit> <amount> - generates ore deposit of the specified size at the current position, replacing also air blocks (usefull for quick testing without having to go underground)
  • /lods strip chunk - removes all blocks in the current chunk, which are not ores
  • /lods strip around - removes all blocks in surrounding chunks, which are not ores
  • /lods dress <chunk | around | all> - restores removed blocks (note that removed blocks are not saved between sessions, so make sure you have restored them all before shutting down the server)
