MOD - Anórien Biome


Never heard of it :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
No, honestly I haven’t ^^ But I will check it out :+1:


Probably possible with modding .lua files then… I will check this later.


It ends up there is no need to mess with lua files. We can do with common .json. The game was recognizing only 8 rock layers right? I thought it was hard coded in lua, but there is another file that controls it. It is in the stonehearth/data/terrain/terrain_blocks.json.

At that file, you just need to add the extra layers (you had a max of 42 if I’m correct, but with all the randomness it only reach around layer 30 I think)

  "rock_layer_8" :       { "tag" : 108, "kind" : "rock" },
  "rock_layer_9" :       { "tag" : 109, "kind" : "rock" },
  "rock_layer_10" :       { "tag" : 110, "kind" : "rock" },

Just don’t repeat the numbers (108,109, 110) cause they are identifiers.

Add it to your manifest as:

"mixintos" :  {
  "stonehearth:biome:index": "file(data/biome/index.json)",
  "stonehearth:terrain_blocks": "file(data/terrain/terrain_blocks.json)"

And at your biome file (anorien.json), just add the colors you want as:

     "rock_layer_8": "#997e73",
     "rock_layer_9": "#0000ff",
     "rock_layer_10": "#997e73",


got the mod :smiley: looks verry nice D:


@BrunoSupremo Superb! -Your help is warmly welcomed :relaxed:
My apologies for the late reply, -it might take a few days between.

I have yet to work with any .lua file so I’m glad to avoid it for now :smile:
(what editor do you recommend for .lua files? -I would like to learn)

Tomorrow I will try to work more on the biome, (hopefully alot more! hehe).
:+1: :+1:



Thank you! -I’m glad you like it (=
I read all posts, so positive feedback gives motivation and is greatly appreciated! :relaxed:
(Though it might takes a while between my answers :+1: )




Worked like a charm!
-Thank you, much obliged :+1::+1: :sunny:


A screen from my MOD as is (2016-05-29):

It will be really fun to see what settlements this might inspire! (=


I need to use this biome for one of my castles! Great Work!
So little time… :cry:

Have Fun, Kyth.


Thank you! @Kythandra :smile:
Can’t agree more on that, Time evaporates too quickly :disappointed_relieved:


The white mountains looks so good!


@BrunoSupremo Thank you! :relaxed:


Quick Question, when will you continue the Archipelago Biome mod?


My priority for now is the template sharing site. That thing is haunting me for not completing it yet. So after that for sure.


@Vargbane I love this mod, the mountains are a very safe place for those who need a little extra protection :slight_smile: The update is very pretty!


I just realized that this biome reminds me of the landscape from Dragon Ball!


Aha, -I thought you asked me ^^D


Glad you like it! :smiley:

I’m not to familiar with Dragon Ball, only seen a few funny clips on YouTube (=


Hey, maybe you should look it up, for ideas :slight_smile:


Here is a screenshot using your Biome, its still a work in progress. I am very much enjoying it.


Red ore veins??? @Vargbane @Geokhan
