In 1.18 we will have a brand new ore distribution, with Ores generating at different heights. But, in real life, the ore are distributed not only in depth, but also in geographical locations: for example, in Europe, the main Iron and Coal mines are located in Center Europe and Northern Europe, but in South and West Europe, there is almost nothing regarding Ores. Or, for example, the majority of rare metals are located in China and Canada, but the rest of the world lacks of them.
I suggest that in 1.18 there should be a value, that may change from region to region, which will be Local Ore Generation
- -2 would mean, almost total lack
- -1 means really small quantities
- 0 means normal generation
- +1 means a bit more than usual
- +2 means more than usual and certain Ore Vein
Also, this will affect the spawn of Iron and Copper veins.
This would add even more strategy, because we can still obtain Ores with the current distribution in a good amount, but we will get a bit less or a bit more in certain areas.
These areas, won't depend by biomes, but would more likely be areas that are in the world randomly.
This change doesn't apply to Emeralds, Diamonds and Nether Ores, but applies to Gold outside the Badlands biome.
Edit: this change affects every single ore singularity : this means that in an area we can find a lot of coal, but less gold and redstone. Or in an area a big copper veins with a lot of copper outside the veins, but less redstone and lapis
