The thing I have looked for but never found in more ores mods is use. Sure you can make the usual set of tools and armor with that new steel ore but what else? Each of the official ores in minecraft have uses iron makes buckets, gold makes powered mine cart tracks, and even diamond can make record players. I think this mod has potential, potential to rise above all the other ore mods, but you will need to make some changes. Magnetium could use some changes, how about it has slightly more durability then iron and breaks stone like wood, but when it comes to ore blocks it cracks through them in less then a second, now thats the pickax I would take in a cave with me! Zillium shouldn't be needed for handles, how about the Zillium handles become Zillium rods and gain the ability conduct lightning? You need to think about this stuff. You'll be amazed at how much things can come out of hard work.

The idea of magnetium is a toolset that you use for clearing out areas and stuff, it has 10, 000 uses and you won't need to replace it for a while.
I am working an new tools (not new materials for tools, new tools, e.g hoe, pickaxe)
I am also working on a lot of new abilities for the new tools, although sadly some will change the minecraft source code...
Hey i was thinking the magnetium would have an effect of helping to find iron or other ores? Since the name suggests magnet?
Or possibly and i think this would be better you could make it so if you were wielding a magnetium tool it would act as a magnet for dropped ores or items so you wouldn't have to be as close to pick up items.
