I have been streaming Vintage Story on my Youtube channel and was frustrated with ore generation. 

So I made a mod that increases ore generation and richness of the veins you find. All the base game ore generation rules apply so you still have to find it. But it is easier to find and in larger/richer veins.

If you want even more, look for the "triesPerChunk" value change in the new "my" ore files. Be careful as high values here can severely slow down chunk generation. And remember a 'chunk' in this game is 32x32x32 blocks, not the entire world height. 

Feel free to edit the mod on your local game to edit, remove, or otherwise alter those things you want to change. Just please don't reupload my changes. It took about 60 hours to figure out how to get the mod working.

  • Changed stack sizes for logs to 64, nuggets to 400, firewood to 64, ingots to 200, beeswax to 64, and honeycomb to 64.
  • Skeps will drop more honeycomb when harvestable
  • Terra Pretta is a little more common.
  • OH, yeah, and iron is smeltable in the crucible. Still need the complex process for steel, however so have fun.
  • Added seperate ore vein generators for silver, gold, sylvite, and all other base game metals, gems, and minerals.
  • With all this new ore, the mining bag is now... extra worth it.
  • Redwood trees are more common
  • Lava is bucketable

Finally got lava bucketing working. So with all changes now functional the mod is done. Check 1.7 changelog for more details.

v1.9 Adds Olivine ore spawn to Andesite, Granite, and Basalt. 
I spent hours and hours trying to find Peridotite with no success and needed Olivine for Tier 3 Refactory bricks.

Haven't yet tested the mod on 1.15.7 but it should work fine. Let me know if it doesn't!

v1.8 fixes redwood log stacksizes and makes coke burn hotter.

Thanks Travisplo, at the moment the game could really use some mid-late game automation options for smelting and pooring into molds like Tinkerers. This is by far the most tedius part of the game as there is no more advanced way of doing it. And with the crate mod and extra chest mod you use a LOT of ingots and plates.

Also, v1.7 of this mod is now done and lava can be bucketable! So enjoy setting up drifter traps and garbage dumps.

Hey, you know how you mentioned wanting a Thermal Expansion-like mod in the changelog? Well, there's the very beginnings of an Industrialcraft style mod called QPTech. Just in case you didn't know.

v1.6 finally accomplishes grass spreading... check out all the changes in the changelog above.

Okay, 1.4 is THE release that should be near-final unless someone really hates my easter eggs I threw in.

Buggi, Sep 29th at 5:49 AM

Still having issues in 1.3 trying to find ores, can anyone tell me what your experience is? I'm going to try something new to get these ores to generate for 1.4.

Buggi, Sep 28th at 8:53 AM

1.3 is a major update/overhaul to the entire oregen methodology. Check changelog for details.
Plus some other fun little easter eggs thrown in.

Buggi, Sep 28th at 12:59 AM

Yeah, bumped up Terra Pretta more than I thought. Oops.

And Omega, the mod now generates independant veins of silver and gold for version 1.2. I nerfed Quartz gen and wanted finding silver and gold easier. Still have to find it, of course.

Terra Pretta a little more common! I walked for a day and hardly saw anything that was not Terra Pretta! Might be a mod conflict somewhere.

You should probably change the name to More Ore or something, because it sounds more like an ore expansion mod than a grind-reducer.
