HARDCORE Config Pack for RLCraft v2.8.2 - (V3)
HOW TO INSTALL:
Simply download this zip, navigate to your RLCraft install, and unzip the contents of this zip file into your RLCraft main directory. The config folder here should overwrite the config folder in your RLCraft install, same with the Scripts folder, etc. You can even make a new profile, fresh install RLCraft v2.8.2, rename it to something like "RLCraft Hardcore Config" and install this config over the new install, which is recommended.
Summary: These changes represent a re-balance and change to things I personally feel are either OP or would provide a better challenge, and are meant to extend progression and early/mid game, but may prove too difficult for the average player. Some of these changes may make it in a future RLCraft update. This was meant for Hardcore mode but it does not have to be played in Hardcore. However LARGE BIOMES is recommended.

SCALING DIFFICULTY ACTIVATED:
-Spawn area changed to 1000 x -1000 radius
-Difficulty meter will display in the bottom left occasionally, but generally you will have to rely on a compass to see your coords, and mob health, to know what the difficulty of the area is that you are in.
-Difficulty starts at 0, and will increment in real time based on your distance from the center of the world, about every 1000 blocks, adding 1 to the difficulty meter.
-For every increment up in difficulty, mobs receive extra health and extra damage. So at about 1000 blocks away from the center of the world, zombies will have closer to 30 health (vanilla 20) and do 5 damage per hit (vanilla 4)
-The difficulty is not limited to single digits, it is a decimal point system, constantly scaling in real time, so if you're 1500 blocks away from spawn, the difficulty meter may display 1, but it will be closer to 1.5, which will still effect mobs, keep that in mind.
-Also keep in mind that, at x: 1000 and z: 0 on your coords, that will count as difficulty 1. But x: 1000 and z: 1000, will be closer to difficulty 2, because you are technically further away from spawn, being diagonal from it.
