Randores Mod 1.12.1, 1.11.2 adds 256^3 ores to the game, that’s 16,777,216 ores. Although, it doesn’t add all of these ores to every world – instead, 300 ores are randomly selected and then generated in the world. 256^3 may seem like an odd number, but it does make sense; Randores generates ores based on a random red-green-blue color. The colors are determined by the world seed, and then the colors become the seed for each ore. Therefore, the same color will always produce the same ore. Since each value, red, green, and blue, can be 0-255, there are 256 possible values for each element of the color. Thus, there are 256*256*256 possible colors, or 256^3. About 100 of these ores generate in each dimension.
