[1.8] Custom world-Generator does not work


Recommended Posts



I created a new class implementing the world generator which randomly generates my custom block in the world. The Problem is, I cannot find the block anywhere in the world. I also used System.out.println("Generated") when the generate(...)-Method of the WorldGenMinable-Instance returned true. Resulting is a console full of "Generated"-messages. But nevertheless nothing is generated. What am I doing wrong?


PS: I used 0 as the second parameter of the addWorldGenerator(...)-Method of the GameRegistry. Is this ok?

import net.minecraft.world.chunk.IChunkProvider;
import net.minecraft.world.gen.feature.WorldGenMinable;
import net.minecraftforge.fml.common.IWorldGenerator;

public class OreGenerator implements IWorldGenerator {

private Block block;

public OreGenerator(Block block) {
	this.block = block;

public void generate(Random random, int chunkX, int chunkZ, World world, IChunkProvider chunkGenerator, IChunkProvider chunkProvider) {
	if(world.provider.getDimensionId() == 0) {
		for(int i = 0; i < 50; i++) {
			int posX = chunkX + random.nextInt(16);
			int posY = random.nextInt(64); 
			int posZ = chunkZ + random.nextInt(16);

			WorldGenMinable wgm = new WorldGenMinable(block.getDefaultState(), 10);
			wgm.generate(world, random, new BlockPos(posX, posY, posZ));



I register the world generator in the initialization part of my main class:

GameRegistry.registerWorldGenerator(new OreGenerator(myBlock), 0);

int posX = chunkX + random.nextInt(16);
int posY = random.nextInt(64); 
int posZ = chunkZ + random.nextInt(16);


You have to multiply chunkX and chunkZ with 16.

Don't PM me with questions. They will be ignored! Make a thread on the appropriate board for support.

1.7.10 and older versions of Minecraft are no longer supported due to it's age! Update to the latest version for support.
