      ATTENTION Forum Database Breach   03/04/2019

      There has been a breach of our database. Please make sure you change your password (use a password manager, like Lastpass).
      If you used this password anywhere else, change that too! The passwords themselves are stored hashed, but may old accounts still had old, insecure (by today's standards) hashes from back when they where created. This means they can be "cracked" more easily. Other leaked information includes: email, IP, account name.
      I'm trying my best to find out more and keep everyone up to date. Discord ( is the best option for up to date news and questions. I'm sorry for this, but the damage has been done. All I can do is try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

flux, flux, my kingdom for some flux

Not a bug report just, looking for some feedback on world generation.  I have a couple mods installed (railcraft, bibliocraft, and carpenters blocks) so maybe one of them is causing some funky world generation (railcraft?) or maybe that's just the way things are now.  On my world it seems that each "continent" only has one type of stone.  The one I am on is made of schist, another one I discovered is made almost entirely of Rhyolite, and still another is Diorite.  When I say "made entirely of" I mean that the surface stone is 95% those.  I am having a killer time trying to find any flux.  I actually found some Gabbro and found Nickel before even finding flux?!?!  The swamps that are generating for me are massively HUGE, filled with Acacia trees forever.  Anyway, is this the way things are now or is some mod I have (I do have others installed like fastcraft and NEI but I wouldn't think those are doing anything with world generation) mucking with the world gen.  Just a question, thanks for any feedback.  Off to try to find some limestone or something.

All of the flux stones, with the exception of Marble, are sedimentary stone, meaning that they only spawn on the surface layer, and that they are competing with every single other stone type in their probability of spawning. Minecraft uses procedural generation, so there is no way to guarantee that a specific stone type will be located within a specific area.


Just keep walking, it is not uncommon in TFC to travel over 10,000 blocks in a single direction to find one thing.
