Adds infinite sprawling ore veins to the world generation with little regard for game balance!

Should be compatibile with other world generation mods, is additive, does not replace existing vanilla circular-like generators.

Thumbnail will aways reflect the latest version's generation look.

Can you fix overload on generating chunks? 
Also, sometimes i see server not responding when i using this mod include local game. I think bcs it tries regenerate same chunk and API doesnt not apply changes (IMHO).

Sorry about that, the last version was technically broke anyways.

The changes are technical, not really relevant. You can see how it changes the look of the ore veins in the latest thumbnail.

So, what does the new update add/change? i checked the changelog, but it was blank.

As the title suggests, they are infinite (as in to the world limit). With quality changing based on the vanilla ore map (if the ore vein intersects higher quality parts of it). Poor quality can be found pretty much everywhere. Child deposits, ie silver in lead deposits occur based on the blue channel of the ARGB map that's created.

Interesting- how far do these veins go, and how often do they spawn? Are these meant to be like real-life ore deposits?
