[1.12.2] Is there a way to up the amount of spawned ore (Aluminum) or change its spawn height?

Hi,
first of all, I would like to apologize if this topic doesn't fit this forum, but I'm tired of searching elsewhere and I hope I can get an answer here.

So, I'm creating a mod-pack and I've encountered a big problem - since Tinker's Construct doesn't add Aluminum anymore, there's a shortage of it in my worlds for some reason, even though there are other mods that are meant to solve the aluminum shortage. I spent some time browsing various websites - wikis and forums, but I couldn't find a good answer (or I didn't understand them enough). I understood, however, that Thermal Expansion should add aluminum into the game, but I have yet to find some.
First, I dug through the config files, but found nothing that could up the amount of ores that are spawning. Then I started up my mod-pack, created a new world and dug down, until I found a cave. I explored it and found out that the only aluminum that is spawning, is the one from the mod called Galacticraft. Also, because I've been playing survival (in this mod-pack) for a bit, I'm sure that aluminum doesn't spawn from y:256 to at least y:40, which is weird, considering its supposed rarity (it should spawn at almost any height). Aluminum is something that's really needed, not only in the early-game, but it's also one of the most important entry-ores in Galacticraft.

I'm not a "wizard" when it comes to mods, coding, etc., but, as the title of this topic suggest, I would like to know if there is a way to up the amount of ore that's being spawned. I would be delighted if there is a way to change the height aluminum spawns at.
I've attached my mods folder and my config folder (so that it's clear what is configurable).

Thank you for your time and effort.

In config/cofh/world you can mess with the ore generation of some mods. Thermal expansion is one of them.

Yes, I've gathered that from the various websites I searched through. However, I would like to know *precisely* what to do. As I said, I'm not a coding wizard (and also, I'm sick of spending hours in configs just to fix this).
Thanks anyway ?

Can you post what your 01_thermalfoundation_ores,json looks like?

Yours doesn't have an aluminum part in it, this is what the aluminum part I have looks like.

Ah yeah, that makes sense. Should I paste into a specific line or do I just paste it somewhere?

I recommend the line after "populate" {

Thanks! I appears to be working, I finally found Aluminium Ore from Thermal.
I suppose I can now freely change the height:

"min-height": 48,
"max-height": 72,

Correct, changing the cluster-size will change how much is in a vein and changing the cluster-count will change how many clusters in a chunk.

I recommend Atom or just straight using your Java IDE, on both Eclipse and IntelliJ you can install plug-ins to parse different types of files such as JSON and they can also do syntax highlighting & error checking

They aren't programmers, they won't know what this is.

Yep, sorry should have read up in the thread. Honestly computers should ship with a JSON parser built in these days

    • im stuck in a problem whit BlockEntities i cannot solve so im trying to work around it but in the less complex way possible  i think is posible to store data to the minecraft world  in older versions people talk about  WordDataSave i dont find anything about it for 1.20.4  i find a tutorial for player capability in 1.19    here is an event      //########## ########## ########## ##########     @SubscribeEvent     public static void onAttachCapabilitiesPlayer(AttachCapabilitiesEvent<Entity> event) {         if(event.getObject() instanceof Player) {             if(!event.getObject().getCapability(PlayerThirstProvider.PLAYER_THIRST).isPresent()) {                 event.addCapability(new ResourceLocation(mercmod.MOD_ID, "properties"), new PlayerThirstProvider());             }         }     }  soo i made this      //########## ########## ########## ##########     @SubscribeEvent     public static void onAttachCapabilitiesLevel(AttachCapabilitiesEvent<Level> event) {     } i think i can do some witchcraft  here  but is many things don't understand  to start whit i dont get yet how to recall the saved data from a BlockEntity  the handler still in progress the plan is to make a Map to store nbt data using the block coordinates as index later store that map as a big nbt      ########## any way the question is if theres alredy a tutorial for 1.20.4 for this ?? or some alredy working code from someone else doing something similar ?           
    • I tried this, and found out that Oculus is the mod that is crashing the game. I have removed it, and it now works fine! Thanks!
    • Hi @DanielderErbauer, I arrived here as I have the "as it does not exist in Block{minecraft:air}" error in a modpack I am trying to start. It's a long-shot, I know, but as the post that led this to being solved is missing, can I ask if you may recall what it said? Thanks in advance
    • Hm yeah sorry, not seeing anything else that's sticking out, I'd need to debug myself probably. Do you have a github or bitbucket repo? I could poke around when I have time to see what the problem might be.
    • looking around for the capabilities thing i found a piece of code and find this piece of code  //########## ########## ########## ########## @SubscribeEvent public static void addCustomTrades(VillagerTradesEvent event) { if(event.getType() == VillagerProfession.FLETCHER) { System.out.println("\n\n### VillagerProfession.FLETCHER \n\n");//<----------- Int2ObjectMap<List<VillagerTrades.ItemListing>> trades = event.getTrades(); ItemStack stack = new ItemStack(ItemInit.ARROW_STEEL.get(), 16); int villagerLevel = 1; trades.get(villagerLevel).add((trader, rand) -> new MerchantOffer( new ItemStack(Items.EMERALD, 2), stack,1,3,0.02F)); } if(event.getType() == VillagerProfession.TOOLSMITH) { System.out.println("\n\n### VillagerProfession.TOOLSMITH \n\n");//<----------- Int2ObjectMap<List<VillagerTrades.ItemListing>> trades = event.getTrades(); ItemStack stack = new ItemStack(ItemInit.INGOT_STEEL.get(), 1); int villagerLevel = 1; trades.get(villagerLevel).add((trader, rand) -> new MerchantOffer( new ItemStack(Items.EMERALD, 2), stack,10,8,0.02F)); } } //########## ########## ########## ########## the event is aknoledge and execute when the maps load  ### VillagerProfession.FLETCHER  ### VillagerProfession.TOOLSMITH  //########## But is not working      is a random piece of code is not working  could it be than this code is old 1.18 and no valid anymore for 1.20.4 or the thing are this numbers  stack,10,8,0.02F));  i dont know what this numbers means    ########## the question is ¿how to add things to the villager traders    thanks for your attention
