Level 62 : High Grandmaster Modder
Cube World (I created this mod BEFORE the Cube World game was released) is a custom terrain generator, which adds a new world type made up of floating glass boxes with different terrain inside of them, as well as cubes with dungeons and blazes inside. For those who always ask, YES, you do always spawn in a grassy cube, YES, all ores spawn equally at all levels, and YES, all dimensions are... cubicized.

 - The current latest version is V4.0AF for Minecraft 1.8.X. (Forge V11.14.3.1487)
 - Plate Glass can be crafted from 2 blocks of normal glass.
 - Some computers lag while generating a new world or moving quickly in the overworld, waiting for the world to load out completely or lowering render distance will fix this.
Installation
1. Install Minecraft Forge, if you have not already (Forge Installation, for those who haven't).
2. Open the folder: %appdata%/.minecraft/mods/1.8 in Windows Explorer.
3. Move the file you downloaded into the folder you just opened.
4. Select the "Forge" profile and start Minecraft.
5. Create a new world, making sure to switch the world type to "Cube World."
Server Setup
1. First, install a MinecraftForge server if you have not already. (Instructions here)
2. If there is no folder named "mods" in the directory that you installed the server, create that folder.
3. Place the file you downloaded into the mods folder.
4. Either change the level-type value in server.properties to cubeworld OR replace the multiplayer map with a cube world map from singleplayer.
Previous Versions
Previous versions can be downloaded from the previous versions box on the right.
*The installation for older, non-forge versions is different - install them as normal jarmods*
To Do
If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments.
Compatibility
    This mod will probably conflict with other Forge world generator mods, but should be compatible with pretty much everything else. If you want to make your mod compatible OR need help creating other world-type mods like this one, contact me.

So, do all new worlds generate in cube fashion, or is it simply a world option? Also, does this mod affect already generated regular worlds? Also, is it compatable with forge 11.14.3.1450?

I am not exactly sure why this occurs, but when I have Cube World installed on my custom modpack, super flat worlds generate with default terrain. This terrain is composed entirely of the biome that is defined in the preset, however. Interesting results are created when trying to define the biome as an id of 8 (The End/Sky Biome) as it creates an apocalyptic-looking world with only dirt. I will be happy to send you the console log that is outputted when creating the world, but because the game does not crash, no crash log is generated. I would just be copy-pasting from the actual console.

I would really appreciate if you would change this mod to make an extra dimension instead of using a world type. I would love really as another dimension, or have an option to make it an extra dimension.

Any plans to do something of the sort?

No plans to do that: Not only does Cube World affect every dimension, but it would unbalance the game as Cube World tries to be somewhat more difficult than the standard game, and being able to collect resources from the normal world would make it easier. If you REALLY want this, however, you should be able to set up Cube World on a server with multiple worlds, but that would be somewhat difficult.
Edit Reply Delete
I must be doing something terribly wrong, because any block I try to destroy is heavily delayed. I tried deleting all other mods, deleting certain mods, changing Cube World file to a .jar, using older forge versions like 1180 instead of 1230, nothing worked. Any clue?

This is caused when the internal server that Minecraft runs in Single Player slows down, and is usually a sign of a slow CPU. Cube World only uses CPU while generating new terrain, so it's possible that you may have an older CPU that is being bogged down by Cube World generation, in which case the lag should clear when not moving around (and not generating any new terrain). If it happens even when you've been standing still for a while, then it should not be Cube World related, as Cube World only affects world generation classes. Without knowing the exact details of the problem, all I can say though is that in a little while i'll be releasing a new version that i've been working on for a while that will reduce CPU usage some, but otherwise there's not much I can do to help.

Hey there.

So I've been wanting to play this mod but I'm not really confident in instaling mods myself and I can't find a working modpack with cube world in either FTB or Tekkit. Do you know if there are any modpacks on those modpack hosting services that use Cube World? If there are not any, do you have any plans for creating a Cube World server in the future?

As far as modpacks, there are none as of yet that I know of (although someone contacted me recently asking if they could create one, so I'll update this if that changes). As far as servers, there was plans at one point to create a server, but I don't really have the money or time to host a server reliably, so that is shelved indefinitely (unless someone else wants to create one). Note however that a server will still require you to install the mod before you join.

i am not related to the mod in any way but i am making a modpack so i am really used to see crash reports, and i think i know the problem, or problems
1) you are using 1.7.2 when the mod is for 1.7.10
2) you need AT LEAST Forge V10.13.0.1207, and you are using 10.12.1.1103, this is a problem because each forge update has improvements and different ways of handling things basically, and if it was updated for that version of forge you need to have it, so.. you have two options, installing minecraft 1.7.10 and  Forge V10.13.0.1207 or newer or use a older version of this mod

Also please stop spaming

Unfortunately, because of the way the mod works, the author of Biomes O' Plenty would have to add in support, as each cube has to be programmed individually with spawn probabilities and block types.

Hey, is iron supposed to spawn as little as it does? I am playing a world and I mined out 2 whole cubes underground and I got like 9 iron but about 17 diamonds. I used the iron for a pickaxe and other things with mods I am using. I was using Bibliocraft, Mr crayfishes furniture mod, and Weapons+ mod. I was just wondering, and if it does spawn rarely, what level will I mostly find it at?

As it says under Previous Versions, "The installation for older, non-forge versions is different - install them as normal jarmods." The 1.6.4 version is NOT a forge mod and can NOT be installed as one, install it as a jarmod instead. If you want a Forge version, 1.7.2 is the earliest one.

You should lower the visible range. Cube World needs a bit more power than vanilla generated terrains (Reasonable for me). So if more cubes are loaded than your CPU can manage, it will result into heavy lags and so you notice this issue :).

Dear therealergo,
I just wanted to thank you really much for your awesome mod. It seems to be really professional coded, because it also works flawless with 1.7.10 and latest Forge for today. This gives me the long awaited challenge and this was what I was looking for. I hope, you continue it as long as possible, because this kind of world generation is kinda unique.

No haste, since all is working fine :). If I'm honest, I really don't miss anything. Solid work will "only" *cough* need some maintainance if major things will change. I wish you the best of the best to get both things working together: Your hobby - coding - and your real life. You deserve it. But what am I saying: You already do really great.

Then you probably either have a  very old version of forge, or the wrong version of MC. This could be confirmed if you sent me the full crash report, but for now download the latest 1.7.2 Forge, and then install.
