Large Veins is a spectacular mod that’s been built to make the mining experience easier for players who frequently find themselves in search of ores in Minecraft. If you’ve mined in this game before then you know for a fact that one of the most difficult aspects of mining is finding an actual ore vein. There are lots of mods out there that make the actual mining process quite straightforward but, unfortunately, locating ores is still a tedious task, and there aren’t many mods out there to make it easier. Thankfully, the Large Veins mod is here to get rid of this issue in order to make mining a much easier task.
Simply put, the Large Veins mod implements massive ore veins into the world that players can locate and mine ores from. As you can probably tell by the mod’s name the veins that it adds to the game are quite massive so, once you find them, you’ll be able to mine an insane amount of ores from them. It’s important to keep in mind that you’ll need to have the Forgelin and ShadowMC libraries installed for this mod to work because it’ll completely cease to function otherwise.
The ore veins implemented by the Large Veins mod are for Coal, Iron, Gold, Redstone, Diamond, Lapis, and Quartz. The spawn rate for veins of all these different ores is different, but the mod comes with a configuration file through which you can edit these spawn rate as well as various other settings such as the size of these ore veins and the minimum/maximum Y coordinate at which they spawn. The configuration file is fairly easy to edit so you won’t need to spend much time trying to figure out how you’re supposed to customize the settings according to your preferences and this is definitely a good thing as it makes things easy for players who aren’t adept at working with the technical side of Minecraft mods.
Default Spawn Rate for Vanilla Vein Types:
- Coal: 1/1000 chunks (0.1% chance per chunk)
- Iron: 1/2000 chunks (0.05% chance per chunk)
- Gold: 1/17000 chunks (0.005% chance per chunk)
- Redstone: 1/5000 chunks (0.02% chance per chunk)
- Diamond: 1/47000 chunks (0.002% chance per chunk)
- Lapis: 1/47000 chunks (0.002% chance per chunk)
- Quartz: 1/1000 chunks (0.1% chance per chunk)
