    i'm not actually mad, just a little crazy ;)

    but seriously, that you've dissected one of my mods to learn how to mod is an honor.
    that's how i learned to mod, by looking at what others had done and how they did it.

    i actually even had a person ask for just the ore glow part, so you're filling a need.

    added a link to this mod in the "ore glow" section description of my ore tweaks mod :)

    if you want, feel free to include my patches as a 'dim' version so people can choose which lighting variation

    also a bit of advice, people like pictures - should add a screenshot to OP so they can see what it does

    As a programmer in other areas I still felt deeply ashamed to be reminded of it - so I must apologize for my mistake. :)

    In any case, I did learn something from your mod so I am glad I found it as an alternative to the old Illuminated Ores package which did not work anymore.

    And that's not a bad idea, I could add your dimmer version into it in the next version when I wake up later. And also include the blue ores you made for choices. I'll link your mod in my description in the meantime so it's available for comparison.

    Hi, i like your mod it makes mining less of a haggle, but you see i use frackin universe and that mod adds a lot of ores not included in this mod, so how do i go about adding those so that this mod uses them? do i replicate the files and change the names to the ones of the other ores? thanks :)

    Pretty much, yes. To add ores you just need to replicate the names into the lua-file and set the glow to the same variables.

    very nice, thanks.

    But silver and tungsten ores don't glow for me.

    What should i do to fix this?

    EDIT: i fixed silver ores by changing the name from "silverore" to "silver"

    i tried to create a "tungsten.matmod.patch" by duplicating some other one and renaming it, but that did not work, as i expected... even made the game crash during opening.

    EDIT 2: ferozium and durasteel don't seem to glow either

    did you create a file in both the Glowing folder and tiles/mods folder? I noticed this issue and was able to make durasteel glow but have not tested it with ferozium.
    NOTE: each folder's file has differing values.

    Recap: In the Glowing folder, I copied the gold.matmod.patch and renamed it durasteel.matmod.patch. Then went to tile/mods folder, copied the gold.matmod.patch file there and renamed it durasteel.matmod.patch. Worked like a charm. I suspect you only grabbed one of the folder files but not both.

    Holly necro, I hope this helps (someone?).

    I'm sorry that I haven't been on here lately, I will fix this addon during the week and re-upload so that all new ores work.
