Any chance of an update for this??  The config file keeps reverting, as previously stated.

Instead of

if (api != null)

do a

else if (api != null)

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Feb 2nd at 11:52 AM

sushieater Absolutely no clue how to fix it

💬 sushieater, Feb 2nd at 10:27 AM


Your ConfigParticles has a bug. It always generates a default config that gets stored:

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jan 31st at 7:56 AM

Mohaim It reverts only when there is error

💬 Mohaim, Jan 31st at 2:26 AM

How do I get my custom config to stick? When I try to edit the config file, it gets overwritten with the default values. If I make the file read-only, the mod doesn't work anymore and the particles don't show at all.

Malnaur This is what mod configurations are for

💬 Malnaur, Jan 20th at 1:50 PM


What I like about the specific mod set is the ability to turn them on or off easily in the mod manager.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jan 19th at 8:59 PM

Malnaur My mod allows to add resin blocks to configuration, but only one particle thing for all blocks sadly

💬 Malnaur, Jan 19th at 8:45 PM

JD2 I just put the resin particle mod up as my first mod. Search for Visible Resin Particles

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jan 19th at 8:38 AM

Okay I just checked it again, it only affects blocks with fertility "high" (terra preta) and doesn't affect fertility "compost" which High fertility is using

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jan 19th at 8:28 AM

Hemril Looks like blockcode that should produce particles didn't change in 1.19, so my mod still works

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jan 4th at 6:15 PM

Thap Yes it is game limitation

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jan 4th at 6:15 PM

Hemril Yes

💬 Hemril, Jan 4th at 6:09 PM

I assume stable 1.19 will have to come out first before switching it around to the high fert soil that generates now?

💬 Thap, Dec 30th 2023 at 8:41 AM

The particles only appear if you're about less than 70 blocks away. Is it a game limitation?

💬 JD2, Dec 22nd 2023 at 4:28 AM

Malnaur  Any chance you can share the resin version?

💬 Malnaur, Dec 9th 2023 at 2:18 AM

I made a variant for resin and played with the velocities so the particles spawn more horzontally and slowly fall downward. Works great!

💬 Malnaur, Dec 7th 2023 at 1:15 AM

Go for it! I did like the hacked copies since I could use different colors for the particles depending on what it was. The colors did not seem orrect for the HSV values I tried but they were definitely different. I also played with glow particles. Neat.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Dec 5th 2023 at 7:19 PM

Malnaur I want to add meteorite and halite particles to this mod

💬 Malnaur, Dec 5th 2023 at 6:39 PM

@DanaCraluminum Confirmed! I hacked a copy of your module for blocks matching '*halite*' and it worked fine for a world I have where I found a halite deposit. I buried a halite block under  a layer of dirt below a layer of sand and the particles floated through both. Please go ahead and create two mods to cover halite and meteoritic iron desposits.  You did 99.9% of the work and you deserve the credit/subs. I suspect TerrainCollision=false is why the intervening layers don't matter.

💬 Malnaur, Dec 5th 2023 at 1:06 AM

Apparently you do @DanaCraluminum :) I put down a TP block and surrounded it on six sides with soil blocks and the particles wafted up just fine! It might require a taller max height to be sure you clear the top layers I suppose. And halite while you are at it ;) At least salt beds will be visible.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Dec 4th 2023 at 10:59 PM

Malnaur I don't know how to make particles pass through blocks

💬 Malnaur, Dec 4th 2023 at 10:54 PM

Love this! Can you do the identical thing with meteoric iron?

💬 VaelophisNyx, Aug 19th 2023 at 12:37 AM

psst, you should lower the default particle count to 0.1 instead of 1.5


just need a hint, not a wall of Stench

_Mason Chemist Added config

💬 Chemist, Aug 11th 2023 at 1:05 PM

Hi. Was hoping to see how I can make the particles more visible? I dont really understand the json files. Not a programmer.

💬 Rivernoodl, Aug 8th 2023 at 12:18 AM

Thanks, DanaCraluminum, That's all I need to know.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Aug 6th 2023 at 11:14 AM

Rivernoodl It only works with Terra Preta

💬 Rivernoodl, Aug 6th 2023 at 4:30 AM

Does this mod work with Terra Tweak?  Just curious.

💬 _Mason, Apr 24th 2023 at 10:05 AM

Craluminum if you can, that would be fantastic. Thanks for the effort, I tried some basic modding when I found a mod that didn't have the values I like, but so much is still way beyond me.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Apr 24th 2023 at 9:54 AM

_Mason I can make particles configurable

💬 _Mason, Apr 24th 2023 at 9:46 AM

The particles are a bit too tall. I like the idea but maybe make the particles disappear 2-3 blocks high? And have fewer particles in general. It would be harder to find terra preta, but still this looks like a forest fire more than "stink lines".

💬 SuurflieG, May 11th 2022 at 1:22 AM

Foxy_Grandpa I can confirm this does indeed world on an pre existing world, finally found some after what feels like forever

💬 Foxy_Grandpa, May 2nd 2022 at 4:34 PM

Does this require a new world to be made or can it be added to a pre-existing world?
