Ah, yeah I tried with longer lifespan and finally one crashed and ore was spawned. Thanks for the explanation, and once more thanks for a stellar mod! Do you plan on making more random weather event to liven up the skybox?

You're welcome ^.^

I'd love to see something like that, too... even more extreme weather phenomena seems like it'd be a cool addition to the game. I'd love to revisit some things in this mod at some point, like implement atmospheric meteor showers that last for an extended period of time, and make it possible for meteors made of rocks that don't exist in the VS worldgen to spawn. Beyond that it's all 'I hope to see it some day!'

I would love wilder weather as well, I am considering getting into vintage story modding, make it so that bad weather makes staying inside important, so one can also enjoy the cozyness of a warm safe home in a storm. As well as having weather effects and nights where there are no monsters because of sky being beautiful!

In a modpack for Minecraft (called Rebirth-of-the-Night), there was a similar event, called a Harvest Moon. The big glowing lunar coin in the sky would be a bluish-goldish hue, very bright, and the presence of it limited/nullified mob spawns. Plus crops harvested under the moon gave a little more product.

Wouldn't that be cool? :)

Is there any possibility for a freshly landed Meteor to smoke for a while, making it easier to find them? I've only ever been able to find one, an Iron-Chert Meteor, because it crashed into the side of a pond and caused flowing water.

I do have destructive meteors on.

Probably could do something like that, yea. I'm most worried about them becoming too easy to find. Maybe implementing that but having it turned off by default would be the way to go. Players could choose to turn it on via a config option if desired.

That would be nice- it's already the minority of people that would have Destructive Meteors on anyways. Unless you're planning to make the chunks that non-destructive meteors drop also smoke if the setting is on?

Maybe you could make a craftable item that prevents meteors from exploding within a certain area? I'd like to turn on destructive meteors too, but I'd hate for one to blow up my home. 

Adapt an idea from Terraria. If a meteorite's destructive radius will hit a chest, storage vessel, basket or other placed storage, it auto-converts to an airburst.

I'm considering implementing a second config option like 'Destroys Claims' or something that, if set to false, simply won't touch anything within a claimed space. If ya don't claim your space, tough luck :P

For storages, the way it works now for chests and vessels, the meteor will destroy them but scatter all the contents all over the place. I find it amusing >.>;
