GeoStrata Mod 1.6.4
GeoStrata is a small mod to diversify underground world generation, making mining and caves more interesting, while simultaneously adding many aesthetic and functional building materials.
Its basic premise is that it adds a bunch of real-world rock types which overwrite 10-20% of vanilla stone. These rocks generate at realistic depths, and in realistic biomes (for example, shale and limestone, being silt/mud rocks, spawn more often in oceans, and cannot spawn in deserts). These stones cannot overwrite ores, nor do they block ores from spawning.
GeoStrata cobble can be used as vanilla cobble for use in properly-coded recipes.
Not all rocks are created equal; some are harder to mine and require better pickaxes. However, these ones also have greater blast resistances, with granite and hornfel being the hardest to destroy. Soft rock like shale is the most easily destroyed.
GeoStrata rock behaves like vanilla stone with pickaxes – it generates as smooth stone, drops cobblestone (unless using silk touch), can be smelted into smooth, and smooth can be crafted into bricks. A variety of other designs are also craftable.
Some vanilla blocks can also be crafted into brick variants, but keeping their original properties, like redstone, glowstone, and obsidian.
The mod also adds “Cave Crystals” – small crystals which can generate in caves. Standing near a crystal will give living entities small stat effects which last for 10 seconds. Crystals cannot be mined directly – they drop shards which can be used to make lamps (which by default give no effects). However, they can be harvested with silk touch to get the actual crystal. Crystal shards can also be used to brew potions, some of which (such as jump boost) are not available normally.
“Potion Crystals” can also be made. Much more costly than a lamp, they double the aesthetic function of a lamp with a 5-minute level-3 potion effect, akin to a scaled-down beacon.
Crystals generate in every dimension except the end, and are most frequent in the Twilight Forest. Nether crystals deal different and much nastier effects.
Crystals can also be made into pendants. While wearing one, you get a constant crystal effect, and any creature you attack gets it for a few seconds as well.
Crystal seeds can be made from crystal shards, which grow into crystal blooms, which emit light but have no functional purpose. When fully grown, they can be right-clicked to harvest a seed for planting a new bloom.
