Welcome to Ore Generation 2, the significantly improved successor to Nicer Ore Distribution.

This pack is dependent on Datapack Utils by ImCoolYeah105. Just follow the link and unzip both datapacks into the datapack folder of your Minecraft save. The new ore veins will generate in previously loaded chunks, so be aware that you may find the new ore in underground areas you've already cleared.

The default Minecraft mining pattern of tunneling to a level near the bottom of the world and branch mining for hours can be one of the least satisfying parts of the Minecraft experience. But simply making ores more common isn't enough to make mining a satisfying experience. Enter Ore Generation 2. Minecraft's underground has now been divided into several ore 'hotspots'. Ore will continue to spawn normally, but will now spawn a significant quantity of additional veins at the following locations:

Diamonds now spawn much more frequently from levels 2 through 8.
Redstone now spawns much more frequently from levels 8 through 16.
Lapis Lazuli now spawns much more frequently from levels 16 through 24.
Gold now spawns much more frequently from levels 24 through 32.
Iron now spawns much more frequently from levels 32 through 48.
Coal now spawns much more frequently from levels 48 through 64.

This adjusted ore distribution makes mining a more intentional experience and also makes finding ore through cave exploration a more viable alternative to mindlessly branch mining. Diamond mining in particular will include an added element of danger as diamonds spawn much more frequently below the surface level of underground lava lakes.

Will there be an update that increases the ore spawns for the nether as well?

Hello. Does this still work for 1.16.3? I try to use this with vanilla and just this plus the dependency but it doesn't seem to work. Datapack Utils have been updating--could it be related to that? Thank you.

Nice! With a few other datapacks to add new ores, mobs, and other things to caves, this could be really cool.
