Welcome to the forum of the Elementium Mod. At this point, the mod is relatively small and adds only a new set of armor, new tools and a new ore. However, if people want I am more than happy to spend more time upgrading and adding new features!
Theory of the mod:
This mod was made completely in my free time. I only gave it some basic features, as I wasn't sure if the mod would be popular or not. As I said, the mod is in its infancy and the amount of time I spend developing it will be directly proportional to how popular the mod becomes.
The mod was created to introduce a new end game ore into the game: Elementium. This ore can only be mined by a diamond pick, and is very rare! Before it is of any use, the ore must be smelted in a regular furnace. At this point you can craft it into tools much the same way you do with normal tools. The mod introduces Diamond Rods (which are crafted with two diamonds on top of each other) which are used instead of sticks when you craft any tools. The armour is also crafted in the same way as normal armour. As explained earlier, the more popular the mod is and the more suggestions people make, the better the mod becomes.
I will debug this mod for as long as there are people using it, or until I no longer have any spare time in which to debug. Bugs can be reported on the jenkins site, on this forum or PM'd to me.

Seems like you are going the right way with making mods! I would REALLY like to see more things being added! Maybe some new mobs and an entirely new ore, set of armor, tools etc. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for all the support guys. My plan is to add a new gameplay element called 'Aspects'. I haven't worked out specifics, but you will be able to combine your elementium tools with them to give them new powers. I also have a few other ideas that I'm working on.
