Dimension-Specific Configurability

As of v2.0, Better Caves supports the ability to use different configuration settings for each dimension. To do this, create a directory called bettercaves-1_14_4 (or bettercaves-1_15_2 for MC 1.15.2) in your minecraft config directory. This directory will be created for you the first time you run the mod. In this directory, you can create a separate config file for each dimension. Config files in this directory must be named with the following format: DIM_<namespace>-<path>.toml. For example, to add a separate config for the Nether, the file must be named DIM_minecraft-the_nether.toml. To add a config for, say, Ratlantis, the file must be called DIM_rats-ratlantis.toml.

The contents of each dimension’s config file follow the exact same format as an ordinary config file for Forge 1.14+. This means that you could copy the base config file bettercaves-1_14_4.toml (or bettercaves-1_15_2.toml for MC 1.15.2), rename it to DIM_minecraft-the_nether.toml (for the Nether), and change the values to make it work for the Nether.

However, there are some important points to note. First, you do not need the comments (in neither the base config file nor any dimension-specific file), which are lines starting with #. They don’t do anything except provide information. Second, the config file for a single dimension doesn’t need to have every value specified. Any values not specified will be pulled from the base config. This is especially convenient, as it means you only need to specify the values you want to override.

For example, say you want a basic config for the Nether. This means you’ll probably want to do the following:

  • Disable water regions
  • Enable Override Surface Detection
  • Change the Liquid Altitude to 31
  • Change caves to have a max altitude of 128
  • Change caverns to have a min altitude of 21 and max altitude of 55 (for example)
  • Disable surface caves, as they are not needed

Advanced Hidden Settings

Previously, certain parameters related to noise generation for caves and caverns were completely hidden from the user. Now, these parameters can be changed in the config file, despite not appearing in the file by default.

IMPORTANT: Advanced hidden settings can only be overridden in dimension-specific configs. They do not work in the base config!

Warning: these settings are very sensitive, and should only be messed with if you know what you’re doing.

Liquid and Lava Caverns have the following parameters available:

  • Fractal Frequency: Frequency used in ridged multi-fractal noise generation
  • Fractal Gain: The gain for successive octaves of ridged multi-fractal noise generation
  • Fractal Octaves: Number of octaves used for ridged multi-fractal noise generation
  • Noise Threshold: Blocks with generated noise values below this threshold are dug out.
  • Noise Type: Type of noise to use for this carver. This is an enum value from the FastNoise Java library.
  • Number of Generators: Number of noise generation functions used. The intersection of these values is used to calculate a single noise value.

Type 1 & 2 Caves have the aforementioned parameters, as well as the following:

  • Enable y-adjustment: The noise value for each block is weighed by the noise value(s) of block(s) above it. Increases headroom for the player.
  • y-adjustment Variable 1: Determines how much the noise value for the block above a given block impacts that block’s noise value.
  • y-adjustment Variable 2: Determines how much the noise value for the block 2 blocks above a given block impacts that block’s noise value.

For more information on these values and how to override them, see the example below. Each of these options is in the advanced section of their respective cave/cavern config section.
