Radiation deep underground?

Recommended Posts

Sometimes when I'm mining pretty deep, I get the "Radiation" status effect, which effects health in a similar way to the "Wither" effect. Why does this happen? Does it mean I'm close to uranium or something? I play single player, so it can't be from another player's nuke.

I would say it's most likely from upgrading to 1.0.8 from a world created before 1.0.8. In the Atomic Science mod, the block IDs for radioactive material and uranium were swapped in that update. Thus, any uranium that was already present in the world got switched to radioactive material and vice versa. Any new chunks would generate normally.

actually regular Uranium Ore(or Uraninite Ore as it's called now) gives off radiation, so there is a chanse of getting poisoned while mining if there are uranium nearby.
