💬 merryclefairy, 4 days ago

hello, my friend wanted this mod but i'm having a hard time telling what the additional gems and such actually do. what are they used for? the guidebook in-game doesn't quite say if they're used to craft something, rather just how to get it, like the rough spessartine garnet for example. hehe i'm dumb :') 

💬 pearllite, 4 days ago

I'm not sure if this is just me, but I've noticed my game has some issues with displaying certain blocks.

Jasper blocks, and surface copper seems to be missing text?

I see some missing text for Meteoric Expansion too, so I'll notify the creator of that mod too!

💬 Jenpai, Jun 1st at 7:21 PM

I would love the ability to craft mudstone, maybe requiring bauxite for balance sake.

💬 Zach2039, May 23rd at 3:19 AM

Are there any breaking changes moving from v1.3.3 to v1.3.4? The changelog looks benign but I want to make sure as do not want to brick server save.

💬 TwoF, May 22nd at 8:24 AM

What is Geoaddons Sand?

💬 menoleyanea, May 18th at 11:59 PM

I'm having the same issue that Austin reported, the mod looks fastastic I really wanna play with it but the bug with the animations is really jarring to me.

💬 gndrneutralnoun, May 18th at 8:06 PM

DollarZone I use this mod on my heavily modded game with no issues. Give it a try!

💬 DollarZone, May 18th at 3:07 PM

Would love to download this mod once all reported bugs have been patched, we need something to break up the sea of granite/andesite!

💬 GRKTheGreat, Mar 27th at 2:13 PM

flint is really hard to come by...

💬 Austin, Mar 15th at 5:36 AM

Awesome to hear! I wish you luck on finding a squashing said bug. :) 

💬 small_fernAuthor, Mar 11th at 2:09 AM

I have an inkling of what might be causing it, i'll add it to my list of bugs to patch when I get some free time and see if I can squash it. Thank you for letting me know about it! Austin

💬 Austin, Mar 10th at 6:17 PM

Don't know if it's been reported yet, but there seems to be an issue with animations with tools SPECIFICALLY when this mod is installed. Knives and stone axes seem to not have the correct animations, same goes with stone shovels. I'm running v1.3.3. Not this also causes knives and anything that inherits knife properties like the SwordZ mod to outright not do damage.

 

Let me know if there is anything I can provide that could help diagnose this and I appreciate the work and dedication you've put into this excellent mod!

💬 VaelophisNyx, Mar 2nd at 12:53 AM

QuantumAnomaly Known, non-dangerous, just log spammy. Iirc slated for fixing Eventually

💬 Newfie, Feb 22nd at 4:45 PM

Clicking on jade rock in the handbook crashes to desktop
Jasper is missing textures in the handbook

Please fix these?

💬 small_fernAuthor, Feb 20th at 1:17 AM

It does not change the copper spawn rate, but there's like 4 or 5 ores total now that can be used for copper. NerdlinGeeksly

💬 small_fernAuthor, Feb 20th at 1:16 AM

I appreciate the praise, a lot of people take the mod for granite, but I think it made me a boulder person :P ShamblerDK

💬 NerdlinGeeksly, Feb 19th at 5:55 AM

can anyone say whether or not this mod increases the copper spawn rate?
As the world I made with this has a lot of copper in my local area dispite me not changing the spawn rate.

💬 ShamblerDK, Feb 18th at 8:05 PM

How gneiss of you to make such a mod.

💬 small_fernAuthor, Feb 18th at 5:29 PM

I have a trimmed down version, please reach out to me on discord (small_fern) so I can get it to you. I don't want to add it here and have a bunch of folks confused when the 1-click-install doesn't including 70% of the mod's advertised content :P Pamela

💬 small_fernAuthor, Feb 16th at 12:01 AM

I don't see why not, I'll slim a version down this weekend and at you when it's up Pamela

💬 Pamela, Feb 13th at 9:43 PM

Can we get a lighter version with JUST the rock types?

💬 CKitt, Feb 12th at 3:30 PM

small_fern

That is hilarious timing! 😂 I'll have to check it out this week.

💬 DarkThoughts, Feb 12th at 1:15 AM

You should probably update the mod description at some point.

💬 small_fernAuthor, Feb 12th at 12:06 AM

I did just add more Querns lmaooo CKitt

💬 CKitt, Feb 11th at 9:13 PM

Having now played with this mod for about six hours total, I can say it truly does make the world feel much more complete! I'm greatly enjoying it. Thanks for updating it for 1.19, I kept meaning to try it in 1.18 but had a long-running save I didn't want to abandon.

I look forward to the different rock types for querns in the future.

Edit: I'm going to laugh if you just updated the mod to add the querns while I had the page open.

💬 Odisurin, Feb 10th at 10:49 PM

Roger, Keep up the good work mate :D

💬 small_fernAuthor, Feb 10th at 1:32 AM

All of those coal types are already in the game excluding Sub-Bituminous Coal, so there's no need for me to add them in :3 Odisurin

💬 Odisurin, Feb 9th at 5:52 AM

Do you have any plans to add different types of Coal like Lignite,Sub-Bituminous Coal, Bituminous Coal, and Anthracite Coal?

💬 small_fernAuthor, Feb 8th at 2:52 AM

Ohhh fossils is an interesting idea! I'm not opposed to it, but I need an extended break with the mod. I haven't played the game since almost November and I need to take some time to enjoy the new update :3

Hydromancerx

💬 small_fernAuthor, Feb 8th at 2:49 AM

The coal generation is the same as the base game CoalMiner

💬 DancingHoskuld, Feb 7th at 5:53 PM

Hydromancerx  

Yes, I saw your comment on another mod and tr5ied to find out how to contact you with out doing this. I couldn't find one.

💬 DancingHoskuld, Feb 7th at 5:50 PM
💬 Hydromancerx, Feb 7th at 5:35 AM

DancingHoskuld

Long time no see dude! Glad to see you found this game too! Some good times back with Civ4 eh?

small_fern
This is a cool mod! Any plans for adding fossils? Or even an add-on mod for fossil hunting?

💬 CoalMiner, Feb 7th at 4:38 AM

Does this mod add realistic coal seams?

💬 small_fernAuthor, Feb 7th at 3:29 AM

There's no reason why it shouldn't work! Cygnusia

💬 DancingHoskuld, Feb 6th at 8:57 AM

I am not running a server. Just single player. Running 70ish mods.

💬 Cygnusia, Feb 6th at 3:39 AM

I can finally settle down into a new world! :D Quick question though, is this compatible with terrain generation mods, like Worldgen Fix Remix?

💬 Calous, Feb 5th at 6:15 PM

DancingHoskuld Server running v1.19.3 and I can confirm that both obsidian and flint shovels are craftable and usable with v1.3.2 of Geology Additions.

Full disclosure this is on a server with over 70 other mods installed.

 

💬 DancingHoskuld, Feb 5th at 4:10 AM

My obsidian shovels have turned into black squares and don't seem to dig.

 

Alos I can't make obsidian or flint shovels.

💬 Mobius, Feb 5th at 1:50 AM

Aw heck yea, update! Time for pretty rocks! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

💬 small_fernAuthor, Feb 4th at 9:10 PM

Will get on adding Querns in the next update, just didn't want to hold up the 1.19 working version any longer! VaelophisNyx

💬 small_fernAuthor, Feb 4th at 9:10 PM

Updated to 1.19! MikhaelPerrin BlackjackBarret

💬 KrazyKaiser, Feb 4th at 5:35 PM

Anything that makes this game more like Minecraft did a fusion dance with Dwarf Fortress is very welcome from me. 

💬 BlackjackBarret, Feb 1st at 11:42 PM

Excited to play this on 1.19

💬 MikhaelPerrin, Jan 26th at 5:38 PM

I really love this mod, do you have any plans to update it to 1.19.x?

💬 AzuliBluespots, Jan 19th at 11:14 AM

Schmarotzer

I don't think so. Cave content adds some "ore" blocks too, but they won't have the protuding models. Custom ores might not have the visual difference, but for the vanilla ores... maybe?

💬 Dracomancer, Jan 18th at 7:04 PM

That's a wondeful find of a mod here! Can't wait for the updated version for 1.19.

Although I have some suggestions for some ore implementation as well. Like the in game chances of finding silver in galena, you could implement on some ores, like finding Tetrahedrite rich in silver instead of locking it only to copper (as a clear reference to the game Dwarf Fortress)

💬 Schmarotzer, Jan 18th at 7:50 AM

Is this mod compatible with JuicyOres?

💬 VaelophisNyx, Jan 18th at 12:44 AM

awesome, thank you for the fast fix on the tools! Sorry my report wasn't mor thorough, it wasn't clear why they weren't working ^^;
glad to hear querns are on the way, and hey, take your time

rushed works are always worse for it!

💬 small_fernAuthor, Jan 16th at 5:39 AM

VaelophisNix, I'll try and get a fix for the stone tools out tomorrow, not sure what's gone wrong with them as I don't seem to be having issues on my end. I shouldn't have any issue adding new quern types for the new hard stone either. 

I appreciate the offer OPpointbaker, I may take you up on that!

Cpt_C0nfus3d, I am aware of those bugs and have attempted to remedy them, however when I fixed the paths the blocks became uncraftable. I'm trying to find a different fix for 1.19

Thank you all for your patience with me, I didn't have any full time work when I started this mod, and now that I do i'm finding it very difficult to find the time to do work on it.

💬 VaelophisNyx, Jan 5th at 12:55 AM

seems there may be a bug with 1.3.0, where most of the stone tools you've added are now uncraftable (can't combine a stick with the heads)

💬 small_fernAuthor, Dec 24th 2023 at 4:24 AM

It would probably run alongside ores-a-plenty, but since the ore gen is tied to each individual ore file it probably won't integrate the new ores in the way you'd like. WTF27pl

💬 small_fernAuthor, Dec 24th 2023 at 4:23 AM

There's a few problems in the server-logs that have something to do with prospecting a few of the new ores, however I'm not running into any issues finding them with the pro-pick. I'll do some more sleuthing tomorrow to figure out what's up with it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! My apoligies for taking so long to see this too; recently started a new job so freetime is extremely limited.

EDIT: I went ahead and tested a number of different ores with the prospecting pick with no difficulty in a fresh world, they all show up correctly in the chat logs and can be found using the prospecting pick normally. I think the reason this idea came up is some ores are pretty rare or spawn very low in the world. I've put a link below that shows a spreadsheet of the spawning conditions for the ores, both vanilla and modded: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1A6WXCbZWB229SnhizaNwtYG2hL2oMM1YkmWoiu12A0k/edit?usp=sharing

There are people testing a mod pack for a server saying that with this mod you can*t prospect these new metals with the Prospecting Pick, is that true?

💬 VaelophisNyx, Dec 9th 2023 at 2:13 PM

small_fern turns out there is already a mod that can handle it! it's https://mods.vintagestory.at/stratashrinker

Downsides are it being unavailable for 1.19 (not a problem for this mod yet), and being so obtuse even the author isn't sure what everything did.

A comment there from me covers how to adjust region sizes though!

💬 small_fernAuthor, Dec 3rd 2023 at 7:54 PM

It is compatible with other worldgen mods! As long as those mods are only modifying worldgen and not adding more rock types everything should work fine. XurxoMF

💬 small_fernAuthor, Dec 3rd 2023 at 7:53 PM

There is an issue with some termite mounds, It seems i neglected to remove Jade and Jasper from the possible termite mound types. That's probably what's causing the issue and it will be fixed in the next version of the mod.
I definitely want to mess around more with generation weights for the different rock types, I have noticed a lot of granite too, although I don't think it feels much different from vanilla in how often it spawns. The concern is that if I mess with the world generation weights, any worlds that are currently using this mod won't be compatible with new versions ( chunk borders will in some cases very obviously have sharp lithology changes, like a granite to a mudstone in one block ). I'll do some digging to see what it would take to mess around with the config file, or potentially make a few preset ones that folks can choose from.

also I'd like to make a small (probably impossible, idk) request: can we get a config setting set to alter the generation weights of each of this mod's and vanilla stone types in rock strata?

Would love to see some of the ones from this mod but 15-20 new worlds deep and it's just been granite region after granite region :C

💬 VaelophisNyx, Nov 28th 2023 at 9:11 AM

@small_fern I'm not totally sure what it was but the next load/worldgen it just...didn't happen

 

I did spot a termite mound in creative missing a texture though, but it wasn't gabbro?

There is a weird interaction with these  3 mods, yours included:

wildcraftfruit_1.0.0 + herbarium_1.0.0

and animalcages_v2.2.0


it only happens when these 3 mods are combined under Vintage Story 1.18.5
it may be cause of animalcages 2.2.0 since it was released for VS 1.18.8

I just wanted to let you know


on wildcraftfruit bushes

on vanilla fruit trees (but with those 3 mods installed)

with vanilla fruit trees

do you have any idea of what may causes this btw?

 

 

💬 small_fernAuthor, Nov 20th 2023 at 3:05 AM

Lime can be extacted from dolostone too, so in practice lime is still going to be less common but still balanced. The same goes for bauxite, mudstone can be used as a substitute.

How the new types affects Chalk and Limestone search ? Do they still pop under the same geological layer (so the mod make them even more rare) or do they appear under some of the new ones ?

TwoF: Thank you very much! Now I've got to get it working for 1.19 😂

Runescholar: It should be safe to do so, save for the new minerals and decorative stones not being present in existing chunks. I would make a backup just to be safe

Fractomedus: Let me know what you think! And it just so happens that our next update is all about gems, ruby, sapphire, garnets ( potentially 7 vars ), spinel, tourmaline ( 4 var ), aquamarine, bixbite, topaz ( 2 or 3 vars ) and probably some i'm forgetting about 😅
It'll be a 1.19 release though; there's no way to add that much content so quickily and frankly I want a bit of down time after finishing up this last update.

Hey, when you update next time, could you fix shovel for diorite,quarzite and gabbro, it errors in my server-logs (maybe skipvariants) . Not sure why its happening, the correct error is that its duplicated items. Axehead also has an error in the json object and drystone and stoneslabs also have small errors.

small_fern In your language file there are no lines responsible for the name of flint in stone.

💬 Catasteroid, Nov 10th 2023 at 11:36 AM

TwoF I took a break spanning several months to deal with issues on the home front, I'm getting back into it now I've got the time. I'm also not really involved in Wildcraft at all now so I'm going through each item in my portfolio and trying to polish them up if they need it, I was actually considering expanding MoreMinerals- I'd hit a rockblock adding four rock types after making all the various assets for them but I've offered them to small_fern if they want them. I'm just waiting for their response but I'm happy enough to transfer them and cooperate on a single mod and deprecate moreminerals if that would be better for us and the users.

💬 TwoF, Nov 9th 2023 at 7:11 AM

You already have some of the same minerals with this mod, which may cause compatibility issues. So now the situation is such that we need to choose one mod out of two, either yours or More Minerals, for everything to be fine. Yours greatly benefits from content.
In addition, the developer of that mod, judging by his activity and posts on Discord, does not have a strong desire to support his mods and is completely passionate about working on Wildcraft Trees. I think he will be happy if you integrate the contents of his mod into yours and he will no longer have to be responsible for it. You can try contacting him about this.

💬 small_fernAuthor, Nov 8th 2023 at 7:23 PM

Hey TwoF, thanks for your comment! I'll consider adding those minerals to the game, although since MoreMinerals is still being updated for the current version of the game the last thing i'd want to do is make their mod obsolete or mirror content intentionally. That being said, since I didn't add a silver ore to the last update, I will consider adding Freibergite to this next one!

gndrneutralnounI appreciate you reaching out again! Liking green is a good enough reason as any, i'm thinking it would spawn as veins within metamorphic rocks. As for a green wood type, I wonder if there's a mod that allows you to paint wood blocks? 
gndrneutralnoun @twof

💬 gndrneutralnoun, Nov 8th 2023 at 5:35 PM

Just 'cause I love green and peridotite isn't quite green enough for me. I would love it as a decorative rock! Now we just need a green wood type, haha.

💬 TwoF, Nov 8th 2023 at 7:31 AM

You can also add the missing minerals from More Minerals - Tetrahedrite (copper), Freibergite (silver), Chalcocite (copper), Cerussite (lead).

💬 small_fernAuthor, Nov 7th 2023 at 10:35 PM

I'll consider adding it! If I did, it would be a purely decorational rock, in the same way marble is in the base game. Any reason in particular you think it would make a good addition?

All the tools and everything show up in-game as: game:item-type-name like game:item-axe-dolostone. 

💬 Thricelight, Oct 15th 2023 at 12:50 PM

Thank you for looking into the Wildcraft Trees texture problem I was having. Really hope I haven't wasted your time. :( 

I'll test it further on a new world and see if I can replicate it again.

Might have just been an abberation. Just for info, I don't have Medieval Fashion installed, but I do use all the Wildcraft mods.

As it happened straight after installing Geology Additions and the strange leaf textures appeared to be rock and brick like, plus things returned to normal after uninstalling Geology Aditions, it seemed cut and dried as to where the issue was at my end. These things happen randomly though I guess and I just got unlucky with that world.

I will persist, as more rock types, etc, is certainly a huge addition to the game...I just like my plant variety equally. :D

Thanks again for all the work on Geology Additions. 5*

💬 small_fernAuthor, Oct 14th 2023 at 5:47 PM

Thricelight
Hmm, sound like a very strange issue, i'll take a look and see if I can replicate it on my end 

That's genuinely really strange leaf textures are being replaced with stone though; all textures in the mod have the same file structure as the vanilla game. So it might be Wildcraft Trees? I'll confirm this today.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention, and hopefully I can clear up any issues so it can be a must-have mod :)

EDIT: I tested both the pear tree ( vanilla ) and the purple plum tree ( wildcraft ) and neither of them had any texture issues. That being said, I took a look at the wildcraft trees mod page and this isn't the only mod wildcraft has difficulty with. The medeval fashion mod also messes with fruit tree textures, as Zartain pointed out on their mod page. If I had to guess it's because Wildcraft forces itself to be the first mod to load, even before the base game 'mods' are loaded. Thanks again for bringing it to my attention, and please let me know if you have any other issues!

💬 Thricelight, Oct 14th 2023 at 2:40 PM

I'm having problems with the Wildcraft Trees mod and Geology Additions. When run together foliage of various fruit tees (so far only come across plum and possibly pear) displays Geology Additions textures instead of leaves. I may be wrong, but your Geology Additions was my latest must have mod, started a new world and ran into the texture problem almost immediately. Switched off Geology Additions, restarted the same world and the Wildcraft fruit trees were back to normal. Would love to be able to use your mod alongside the Wildcraft mods. Many thanks in hope. :)  

💬 GingerAiyle, Oct 9th 2023 at 4:17 PM

That's really good to hear, I'm looking forward to trying it out again in the future since I really enjoy some of the added rock types :) 

One other thing I forgot to mention is that I noticed with at least Gabbro it seems like the texture for Aged Bricks might be missing? And honestly I haven't played vanilla in a long while so I'm not even sure if aged bricks are a vanilla block type or not, but it is one that's included often in the structures from the Better Ruins mod. I was wondering if maybe you could take a look at that as well :)

small_fern

💬 small_fernAuthor, Oct 8th 2023 at 9:01 PM

I've been in the process of re-writing the mod from the ground up to make it more expandable and forward compatible, I will make sure to double check that surface deposits are being correctly generated. My apoligies for the lack of copper in those regions! GingerAiyle

💬 GingerAiyle, Oct 2nd 2023 at 1:10 PM

So I spawned in a Gabbro region and noticed there's no copper anywhere nearby, and then even when I traveled out pretty far into a Diorite region and a Mudstone region, the only ores I really saw any bits for on the surface were loads of tin and maybe scant amounts of lead. I'm currently kinda having to rely on getting my beginning copper from getting lucky with ruins vessels. Thinking something might be not quite right with the ore generation since I for sure set my surface copper to "Common" in that world.

💬 VaelophisNyx, Sep 30th 2023 at 6:03 AM

Are ore spawns the same as vanilla roughly? In a Diorite region and there's literally only silver/gold/quartz/tin. So much tin. Endless tin.

💬 small_fernAuthor, Sep 9th 2023 at 4:20 AM

Ryuu
I didn't create textures for the aged bricks as I don't believe they're used in the base game, and the strange naming scheme is because they were never added to the dictionary. I am currently working on refactoring the mod and adding a few things in, I will make sure to remedy that in the next update! Thank you very much for bringing it to my attention that aged stone bricks are used in modded content and that slabs are causing some strange issues! 😁

💬 Ryuu, Sep 8th 2023 at 4:31 AM

I use Th3Dungeon mod and it would appear it generates dungeons based on json being configured with a lot of script similar to ""game:agedstonebricks-granite":"game:agedstonebricks-{rock}"," As such, It shows mudstone cobble stone but not game:block-agedstonebricks-mudstone

💬 small_fernAuthor, Sep 7th 2023 at 6:00 PM

Ruyeex @Stratateles

Some of the common knapping materials were chert, chalcedony, flint, jasper and obsidian. all of these fracture choncoidally and are some variation of quartz/have very high silica and are homogenous throughout. Save for axes, shovels and hoes probably using any kind of stone available, knives and spears ( and arrowheads ) would have been made of the previously listed minerals. I am not aware of tools being made of ameythyst or any mineral besides what I listed, although that doesn't mean it didn't happen. I think, if y'all like the idea, I could do a few different decorational/ceremonial toolsets out of colorful minerals, but they wouldn't have much durability or be very effective. Alternatively, I could look at what developing some kind of ''decoration'' system for tools and weapons would look like, but keep in mind i'm a geologist, not a computer scientist so who knows if I can pull it off 😛

💬 Stratateles, Sep 7th 2023 at 8:32 AM

Piggy-backing off of what Ruyeex said - I do not think that it would be a good idea to change the present minerals into knappable stones, however, it's not fantasy! (Realistically, I mean)

Quartz (along with plenty of other crystals like amethyst, jasper etc.) were sought out by primitive people (sometimes, they would even walk for miles just to search for them) for stone knapping as good and great-looking tool materials :)

💬 small_fernAuthor, Sep 7th 2023 at 4:27 AM

small_fern Your mod works good only when it is the only installed mod, once you add mods that add more rocktypes or just new game mechanics related to tools, any stone/rock block etc., it breaks

Also it is not compatible with future versions of the game, so if vanilla edit/add more rock types or just a new tool, your mod will break vanilla.

It wouldn't be a problem if you have done this with patches

💬 small_fernAuthor, Sep 6th 2023 at 5:47 PM

DanaCraluminum

I'll look into converting the mod to just patching the game, but at the end of the day I made this for fun and i'm probably not going to redo the whole thing because it wasn't done the "right" way 😅. The method I used seems to be working fine, but if the scope of the mod expands I will redo it the ''right'' way.

💬 DanaCraluminum, Sep 6th 2023 at 5:00 PM

Replacing vanilla files with modded files is bad modding practice in this game, because it is not minecraft.
