Clay Spawn Mod – Make clay spawn underground as well! No more deep sea clay mining expeditions!
Overview of this Mod
Clay is incredibly rare to find for some reason. I mean, it does not mix in randomly with the terrain, and you can usually only find clay in small lakes, or at the bottom of the ocean. I don’t know about you, but this is incredibly inconvenient, and I would much rather cut down the time it takes to make brick houses by a fraction somehow.
That’s where this mod excels in. This mod makes it so clay randomly generates underground, similar to how iron does. Why iron? I said iron because clay will now have the same rarity of iron, and since iron isn’t too rare for the avid miner, finding clay should now become several times easier and less tedious.
In my opinion, this mod should be incorporated in the normal game because I don’t see any reason that clay should be extremely rare or extremely hard to find. Then again, bricks are incredibly potent, and will not budge easily, even if creepers barrage you. So I guess the trade-off is fair in the normal game, but still. I would rather spend more time building the house rather than finding clay.
In conclusion, even though this mod is a fairly small mod, it does just fine, and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to have a brick house, or a brick structure in general, and also cut the time it takes to gather the materials required. Now for some screenshots of this mod.

For the most part, that’s it when it comes to Modloader and Forge mods. Also, please note that you no longer have to do steps 1 and 2 once you already installed it the first time (you may need to reinstall them however, if you updated your client). Also, just a heads up, if you don’t see the mod loaded into the game, you might have to extract the mod into a folder. Most mods work in their zipped form, but some require you to extract them first. Have fun!
