Natural void holes in Overworld?

Recommended Posts

I'm honestly not sure if this is a bug or if it's part of a mod, but researching this subject hasn't yielded me any answers yet.  My map is dotted with what looks to be random void holes.  It's definitely not a chunk loading error... or at least not the type I've seen before.  The first time I came across one, I watched a cow approach the edge and turn into steaks upon entering.  Later I was tunneling downwards to do some branch mining and while hearing the sounds of what I thought was lava, I broke the wall and out came... void water?  (Sorry, no screenshot.)  Basically, it came out in the same manner as lava or water, but it was a semi-transparent black.  Again, I thought this was an error.  I tried sticking a torch inside (it fell away) and then an empty bucket, which came back with regular water.  The blackness I could see beyond the hole was that void blackness, not like the regular cavern darkness.  Ended up plugging the hole with cobblestone. 

 

Anyone else experience this?  If it's a mod, it's a feature I really hate, and I'd like to know what to do to turn it off.  And if it's a bug... how do I fix it?   This same thing happened when I spawned a new map.  My browser is up to date and I'm playing the latest stable version.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Either the lighting engine is messing up, or something else weird is happening.

Go back in your world and try to take some screenshots. I'm intrigued by this.

 

My first hunch is that this is a lighting engine failure. Was the steak cooked, incidentally? Could have been lava on an already injured cow.

Are you sure it isn't Galacticraft oil? Either way you can use an oil collector thingie or a sponge to get rid of it. (I'd use the sponge, then when you need oil use the oil fabricator, much less fiddly).

Ugh, my apologies for not testing this out more thoroughly beforehand.  While I was taking screenshots and toggling between creative and survival mode, I discovered that the surface "holes" are actually SLUDGE.  *face palms*  So that's one mystery solved.

 

But I still have no idea what the "black water" in my mine shaft is.  When I scoop it in a regular bucket, it looks like regular water and is identified as water.  Burbles like lava, though, and can't really see it very well.  Is that how the Galacticraft oil works?

It's possible that is what happens. I don't know, to be honest. I've never gotten far enough to play with Galacticraft in earnest, so I've always left oil sources alone.
Go ahead and give yourself a portable oil extractor through NEI. It's from Galacticraft and when you right-click the liquid, if it is indeed oil, should fill right up.

If not, again, please provide screenshots and try to dig to a source block of the liquid. Press "0" on the numpad to bring up the WAILA menu. I don't know the exact menu to pick, but there should be an option somewhere that says something along the lines of "Toggle Liquid Visible". Then, when looking at the source block you'll be able to see what it is.

 

EDIT: Fair chance it is, indeed, GalactiCraft oil, like Phlexor posited.

That is oil from galacticraft, it makes sounds like lava and is often found underground. You can confirm this by looking at an ocean biome, as you will often see perfectly spherical deposits of the oil. The only way to pick up this oil is using the gc oil extractor and the canisters from gc, buckets do not work as it will turn into normal water.

GC oil seems to be a child class of lava (for some reason), it means it burbles and stuff but it also shows up on any lava-detecting items as lava (the witchery dowsing rods in B-Team, for example).

Yep. Best way to deal with unwanted Galacticraft Oil is the OpenBlocks Sponge. If you actually need oil to go to the moon or mars, then the MFR Oil Fabricator pumping straight into the Galacticraft Refinery is the easy way to go. No running around with canisters and an oil extractor which is a P.I.T.A.

      For more information on our servers, network, status, wiki's, launchers, pack pages, and more checkout our server page here:
      http://apocgaming.org/servers
      AGN is a community of gamers for minecraft and other online games founded in 1999 for gaming and setup in 2010 for minecraft servers.
      We host independently from Zilacon's own privately hosted dedicated servers.
      (Bungeecord, Vanilla, & Tekkit Classic are on a paid host. All others are hosted by Zilacon)
      I pride myself in hosting and managing high performance servers with virtually zero down time. All of our servers have deadlock, lag, and crash detection.
      Automated restart scripts, entity clearing/merging, spawn limits, timing adjustments, etc. To make the server run as smooth as possible.
      Our servers normally maintain 19-20 TPS no matter what. If you experience any type of lag with a good ping to the network, please contact us so we can look into it.
      Me and my staff team are available almost 24/7 on our discord server.
      On APOC we have many gameplay styles for you to choose from, along with over a dozen modpacks and servers to play on.
      All of our servers (excluding skyblock modpacks) have all of the features below.

      Server Features:
      Always Online: Dedicated, optimized, built for performance servers since 2010. Our servers are fully automated with almost zero need for human intervention to remain online and running smooth. Multiworld: We have worlds for PVP and PVE. These worlds are Survival (PVE/GriefPrevention Protection), Factions (PVP/Factions Protection), and Towny (PVP/Towny Protection). PVP worlds allow griefing and raiding by following the rules within the factions and towny plugins for war. Survival is PVE only and uses GriefPrevention for its protections. Custom Economy (APOC-Payday): Our economy is like no other, with one giant plugin (APOC-Payday) this plugin offers rewards for over 30 gameplay activities from killing mobs/players to crafting items. It also rewards you for voting with keys/kits to redeem for items and economy/exp/claimblocks. Our plugin also handles sign shops, player plots, automatic ranking, online/login rewards, and much more. Admin & Player Shops: We provide basic vanilla items in the spawn tower for admin shops. And we leave the modded side for players to buy a plot in spawn, create a shop, and select their items and prices for their shop. We encourage a competitive player market on APOC. Our admin shops will not interfere with selling modded items. Custom /help Commands: We have a custom menu of /help commands that explain everything on apoc. How to use our economy, claim systems, worlds, voting, shops, teleportation and homes, and much more. If these help commands cannot answer your questions, staff are available on the servers or on discord. MCMMO & APOC-RPG: All of our servers come equipped with MCMMO and APOC-RPG which adds skills, bonus drops for actions, custom enchanted item drops from mobs, and randomly placed chests or structures with loot inside in the worlds. Bungeecord: Our custom bungeecord server allows clients of any version to connect to our network & servers. Once connected to the server of your choice, you can communicate with everyone from every server, and see everyone who is online in the tab list from all servers. Looking for Staff:
      We are seeking active staff members for all servers on apoc. If you are interested in any position please apply on the links below. We are looking for java developers and server staff. Apply for Chat Mod: http://apocgaming.org/cmodapp Apply for Server Mod: http://apocgaming.org/smodapp Apply for Developer: http://apocgaming.org/devapp Voting & Reviewing Rewards:
      Voting for our network on one of the 36 vote sites listed on our /vote command in game or on our site at http://apocgaming.org/vote will give you 1 Common Key and 1 VoteKey. Common keys are one of 4 types of item reward keys issued on the servers. These keys can be earned by voting, being online, or logging in daily. When redeemed they will give you one item out of a long list of possible rewards. The higher grade the key is the better the rewards. Redeeming keys like Common have a chance to upgrade to Uncommon, and Uncommon to Rare, etc. Vote Keys are issued only for voting for sites, they give 1 EXP Level, $100 Economy, and 10 Claimblocks. We also reward for reviewing our network/servers on vote sites and forums like this (technic). If you enjoy our servers, please write us a review by replying to this topic for $2500 Economy and 3 Rare keys as a reward. If you got any suggestions or ideas for improvement, we are open to change. Just let us know!

      I know that a few others have reported the problem, but I have not found any solution with me and my friend's world. When we started the world, there were almost no problems with falling through the world or lag or anything. As we progressed, though, this problem got worse and worse, starting with when I died I would fall though the world for 10-20 seconds, and I would spawn back in with little to no problems. This has now gotten to the point where I cannot play on the server because I would be falling through the world and into the void. Once I let it sit for a while and it took almost 30 mins for me to load in, but I was immediately killed, leaving me to fall through the world. We use hamachi to play together and both have pretty mediocre internet, both staying around 6 Mbps on an average day. Also, we both have around 6 gb of ram allocated to technic, so that is not the problem, as we have both tried lowering and increasing ram. Any help would be great!

      Hey All,
      Brand new to Technic, but been wanting to do this for a while. Only issue is, on my laptop I cannot actually play the AotBT modpack despite installing it. The download & installation seems to complete fine, but I never actually get to see the play button. I know what should be happening as I've installed and played AotBT on my desktop, where it worked fine.
      I have tried:
      - Deleting the pack and redownloading/installing it via the delete pack button, bottom right of modpacks tab
      - Reinstalling the pack via the modpack options menu
      - Restarting my laptop
      - Restarting the Technic launcher
      This problem also persists with other modpacks (I tried Blightfall and got the same issue).
      I am using the current default minecraft Java, 1.8.0_191 64-bit, with 3GB of RAM set in the launcher options.
      Any help is greatly appreciated.
      Latest log (Including installing Blightfall) is here.
