Although the Nether biome is a hot topic, remember that items still should be put in their proper categories, even if they are Nether related. Please read the pinned post on creating biomes and dimensions. Please put items for the new Mountains and Nether Updates in their proper categories. Remember portals are structures, that includes Nether portals.


Basalt Layer in Nether

    I like the idea of making basalt more common, but maybe it shouldn't generate in a fully solid layer as that would be a bit overwhelming. Instead, you could find it in patches, similarly to granite, diorite and andesite in the Overworld.

    I agree with Jakub Zeleznik

    I think it should be in a kind of patchy layer, similar to how the bedrock gets at y=5. This would cause your mining speed to fluctuate as you go, which would make mining in the nether less monotonous and kind of risky/unpredictable, which fits the dimension quite well.

    I also agree with jabuk zelenik because netherack is easy to mine and this could add pockets to either avoid or persevere through make nether mining less dull.

    Perhaps a 'hardened netherrack' would work better for this, as the basalt is in the soul sand valley.
