Large Veins


Adds incredibly rare, super-massive ore veins to the world.


Large Veins uses a JSON configuration file allowing users or modpack developers to modify the minimum/maximum Y coordinate the large vein can spawn at, the size of the large vein, and the chance the large vein has to spawn (higher number is more rare), and even add their own large veins. More information about the configuration file format can be found on the wiki.


The default configuration file for Vanilla only can be found here and the configuration file with Vanilla and all the included mod support (Actually Additions and Substratum) can be found here.


Default Spawn Rate for Vanilla Vein Types:

  • Coal: 1/1000 chunks (0.1% chance per chunk)
  • Iron: 1/2000 chunks (0.05% chance per chunk)
  • Gold: 1/17000 chunks (0.005% chance per chunk)
  • Redstone: 1/5000 chunks (0.02% chance per chunk)
  • Diamond: 1/47000 chunks (0.002% chance per chunk)
  • Lapis: 1/47000 chunks (0.002% chance per chunk)
  • Quartz: 1/1000 chunks (0.1% chance per chunk)
