    Hey all,

    I am about to create a mining world on my home server using a Mystcraft book and crystal Portal.

    Could someone give me some advice about the best pages to add to my book to create a good stable mining world similar to the one we have on Serenity.

    Cheers...

    I've never tried it myself, but I watched the DireWolf20 videos on the subject and that would be my starting point. Just make sure if you do watch the videos you are checking out the ones that cover the version of Mystcraft you're using since there have been some major changes at least between the last time I played and getting back into things now.

    I have been watching the Chipped Gaming FTB Unleashed videos which are very good, and he makes the map available to download. It's a good way to mess around with all the cool stuff he builds in the series.

    The Direwolf20 videos are great, and it's amazing how many videos he puts out.

    For mining, I tend to stick to a single biome extreme hills world. Extreme hills has a normal distribution for ores, and a higher than average distribution of emeralds.

    Remember that the dense ores page is going to cause instability.

    The Extreme Hills best I find - unless you are running a server and want to start building your own map

    Had a great time last night with the kids exploring random worlds in FTB Unleashed. We also run additional mods including Mo creatures and Millenaire so some pretty wild moments like walking into a nether style world of netherrack and lava with all the nastiest Mo creatures waiting for us. Ended up with some beautiful and unique maps to explore.

    Going to craft the mining world this morning.

    One mod i am loving at the moment is the Builder mod. If you need a quick place to stay you can erect a castle, temple or mansion in about 5 seconds.
