[1.16.5] overwriting the maximum build height


Recommended Posts

I'm currently writing a mod in which I change vanilla features and add a few new features (from version 1.17).

now I want or try to enlarge the world size (height).

since i have no idea if this is possible and if so.

which I would then have to overwrite. my goal would be to expand the world by 128 down (to -128) and 64 up (to 320).

I assume that the whole thing will not be easy because I have to overwrite the whole world generation (ores, caves, decoration, etc).

World generation is your smallest problem. The save format doesn't support this in 1.16, so you basically can't.

it is possible to create a custom save format

Edit: or copy one from a old version like 1.15

Not easily.

And older save formats don't support an increased world height either.

(In fact, I'm pretty sure the current save format goes back to like 1.7. Edit: just checked, Anvil has been in use since 1.2.1)

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

 

Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.

 

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

thanks for the info, since the whole thing sounds pretty complicated, I will probably not change it

    • Experienced modders, I come to you with hat in hand and request if you could share with me your thoughts and suggestions for a direction I should take on implementing a feature in my mod. First, the concept. What I would like to achieve is to provide the end user a json config file in which they can place a list of biomes and provide some addition details/criteria to apply to the world generation about those biomes. The first I would like to achieve is applying a min and max distance that a biome can spawn at from the center of the world. For example, if they wanted to make sure that desert biome was never any closer to 0, 0 then say 200 blocks they could have that in the json and then the world would skip desert as an allowed biome whenever the player is generating terrain before 200 blocks out. So far I have been able to implement my own WorldType and BiomeProvider and strong arm the getBiomeNoise function to check the distance loaded in from center against the value loaded in from the config file and just wholesale swap it for a different hardcoded biome choice, but obvious that brute force attack is not ideal at all. So I have two questions maybe you can offer advise about: 1. I would actually like this feature to allow whatever the existing generation algorithm is to do its things and just make this one additional criteria check, but obviously this seems unlikely. I have been reading up on Mixins but I am not sure yet if this will let me achieve my goals or if I even SHOULD go that route. 2. What do you think is a better strategy for replacing the chosen biome with a new one? Look for the closest neighbor biome and go that route? Whats the best way to do that?   Thanks ahead of time for anyone who even bothered to read this lol.
    • Yeah, I changed the JAVA_HOME variable to the path of my JDK (C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_281) and it worked. Thanks.
    • use NetworkHooks#openGui look how minecraft create container, but basically you need the container and a screen tutorials are not the best solution to learn something, read the forge docs and look here in the forum, then try to create a container, if you have problems creating it you can still ask
