MeteorCraft is a mod by Reika. This mod adds random meteors comprised of different types of ores (including those added by other mods) that will crash into the Overworld. There are three types of meteors: Stone Meteors, Netherrack Meteors, and End Stone Meteors. Stone Meteors will carry stone-like ores such as Iron and Redstone; Netherrack Meteors will carry nether ores such as Nether Quartz and ores added by Nether Ores; End Stone Meteors will carry ores from The End such as Olivine. By default, 40% of the meteor is ore and the rest is filler blocks. This value can be adjusted in the config file.
Meteors carry Gunpowder and Glowstone Dust as well, which will be spawned randomly around the crash site. Meteors are also destructive and can permanently change the landscape. There are options that allow the user to protect specific biomes by y-level. When a meteor enters this biome at this y-level, it will explode in mid-air and sprinkle 60% of its blocks below.
By default, a single meteor will spawn once an hour. This can be adjusted in the config file. Multiple meteors can spawn in Meteor Showers. A Meteor Shower will last between 30 seconds and 5 minutes. It will greatly increase the amount of meteors that are spawned. Roughly 1/1000 meteors come in a shower. Meteors that are part of a shower will explode in the air, rather than on impact with the ground.
MeteorCraft also adds its own machines: the Meteor Defense Gun and the Meteor Radar. With RotaryCraft installed, the cost of making them will be cheaper, but they will require power.
MeteorCraft requires DragonAPI to be installed in order to launch.
