@iammistahwolf @Blazed-Chillist Just in case yall haven't figured out where to start out with deleting occlusions, I made a quick video that should help get you pointed in the right direction. I'm silent in the video, but you should be able to get the jist of what you need to do to delete the occlusions where you are building your mods.
ps. don't know why the video starts out blurry when view here in full screen, kinda pissing me off. It starts out clear for me if viewed in YouTube.
