I'm playing Technic single player, v7.0.1. I've not played it very much, hence my confusion... what is all this?

As you can see, I'm at level 2 - ie, bedrock level. However, I stumbled across a grass floor and a lot of interconnected corridors rather than the usual vanilla Minecraft experience. There is a ton of ore here of various kinds:

  • Diamond
  • Redstone
  • Silver
  • Nikolite
  • Tin
  • Uranium
  • Iron
  • .. the list goes on.

There are also some mobs spawning. This may be because I've placed torches and there's grass, which are requirements for many mobs to spawn. I've encountered

  • Chickens
  • Sheep
  • Scorpions
  • Ghosts

There's strange 1 block-deep pools of water and a lot of small lava flows. Underneath th grass and water pools is bedrock.

I'm loving this place, but sadly - I got lost. Whilst I'm running around voraciously mining and trying to find my way home, I'd like to know where I am! So the question is: What is this place and what mod generated it? Is this a common area, or a rare find?

    You aren't on vanilla Minecraft, though. Your using mods that add new ores to the game, you have MAtmos, and the compass. Are you using Tekkit or Technic Pack? This is either a feature or a glitch in a mod you have. So, (unless your on a snapshot and this is a hidden feature), this isn't part of vanilla Minecraft (or at least, not documented).

    I'm going to say this is a rare find. It is probably an error in the code, most likely the mod. I would suggest talking this over in the Minecraft Forums where you got the mod.

First time I've ever answered my own question!!

I posted on the Technic board, and it turns out that it is in-fact part of Better Dungeons as Dimtuhop suggested. These are apparently rare, but intended, cave systems.

Thread on Technic Forum.

So, for those interested, it's worth searching for! Just dig down to bedrock level and tunnel around. It's actually quite fun to explore and (although it appears to have the same amount of ore) there's lots of ore!
