Cave decorators

Generate decorations in caves

This feature requires ItemsAdder 3.1.6+
With ItemsAdder you can generate decorations in the world caves to make your server more professional and original.
For example you can make new mushrooms, new little plants, rocks and decorations

Creating a Cave Populator

Creating the configuration

For example let's create a group of small rocks which will spawn around the world.
info:
namespace: myitems
cave_decorators:
small_rocks:
block: small_rocks
bottom_blocks:
- DIRT
- GRASS_BLOCK
- STONE
- COBBLESTONE
- MOSSY_COBBLESTONE
biomes:
- PLAINS
- SUNFLOWER_PLAINS
- RIVER
- MOUNTAINS
- MOUNTAIN_EDGE
- BIRCH_FOREST
- BIRCH_FOREST_HILLS
- TALL_BIRCH_FOREST
- TALL_BIRCH_HILLS
worlds:
- world
chance: 100
max_height: 255
min_height: 0
amount: 4
position: SURFACE
As you can see I set some properties:
block is the ItemsAdder block to spawn as decoration.
bottom_blocks property is used to decide the block types on which the decoration can spawn.
biomes property is used to decide the valid biomes in which the decoration can spawn.
worlds property decides the worlds in which the decoration can spawn.
chance is the change of a decoration to spawn in each chunk of the world.
max_height is the max world height where the decoration can spawn.
min_height is the min world height where the decoration can spawn.
amount is the amount of blocks to spawn in the decorations group, for example you can set 5 to make a group of 5 decorations spawn one attached to the other.
position is a property used to specify if the block must be on the cave SURFACE or CEILING.

Creating the block

Now you just have to create the block following the tutorial. You can use REAL_NOTE, REAL_WIRE REAL_TRANSPARENT and REAL blocks, depends on your needs.
