Wiki - Home/Ore Depths and Mining Levels

Short link: https://tinyurl.com/ycenf8jc

 

Notes:
Percentages on Max Height indicate percentage of the naturally generated ground.  For example, if an ore has a Max Height of 100%, that ore will be spread across the height of an entire mountain, or spread across the height of the ocean floor.

So, for example, Ruby is found between y=0 and 70%.

  • If your ground is at the standard water level of y=64, then the Ruby ore will be found between y=0 and y=45.
  • If you search in an ocean, where the ground level is, say, y=35, then Ruby ore will be found between y=0 and y=25.
  • If you search in a mountain, where the ground level is, say, y=140, then Ruby ore will be found between y=0 and y=98.

    Generation Types (per info from WTF Cavebiomes mod):

1 - Flat sheets

2 - 2x2 vein of a given length

3 - 3x3 vein of a given length

4 - single block

5 - vertical vein

6 - star-shaped deposits
