The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
This is an ores mod created with the purpose to add ores, "Unique" ores if you will, that I have rarely seen in any other updated mods. It also adds a couple of machines and decoration blocks to expand your Minecraft experience.
Please feel free to report any bugs that you find on this post's comment section and support me and my mods with feedback! (criticism or not)
You now need to use Burning Compound as fuel for the machines, as Coal Blocks are highly inefficient and coal cannot be used anymore.
The recipes for Burning Compound can be found in the Machine section below.
Added Meteorite, generates with some Lava and Meteorite encased Rhodium to compensate for the rarity of normal Rhodium ore. Meteorite Powder is used as a crafting ingredient for Burning Compound. Can be found at ground level 65 and below.
Severely lessened the time it takes to use the Industrial Furnace and the Grinder, and the amount of gold it takes to craft a Grinder.
Added harvest levels for some blocks (example: Rhodium Ore can only be mined with a Diamond Pickaxe).
Version 0.8 - Finally updated to 1.7.2! A huge pain, but it was worth it!
Added compressed Multi-blocks to substitute for the machine's multi-block structures while my multi-block code generator updates (Multi-blocks have REALLY LONG code if you're not aware)
Created a custom Creative tab for organization called Unique Ores
Changed the Blast Furnace to require Fernico in the crafting as well as Rhodium
Fixed the version number being WAY ahead of what it was supposed to be XD (fail)
Bug Fix: Jasper Blocks no longer flicker
0.8.1 - Bug Fixes:
Bug Fix: Cobalt Ingot not working properly.
Bug Fix: Compressed Multi-Blocks have correct names.
Version 1.0 - Initial Release, Compatible With Forge 781
Version 1.0.2 - Fixed Incompatibility With Forge 789 and Machine Recipes
Version 1.0.3 - Buffed Rhodium tools a bit to compensate for its rareness and added Reinforced Gold.
Version 1.0.4 - Added more alloys including Ultimet and Fernico. Fixed the pick block on the Machines and made them appear in the Creative menu.
Version 1.0.5 - Updated to 1.6.4 and corrected the titles of the Grinder, Power Furnace, and Blast Furnace's GUI's respectively.
Version 1.0.55 - Removed something that wasn't supposed to be there yet .
VERSION 1.7 - HUGE UPDATE. Changed the way the machines are crafted, used, the recipes in them, and made the MULTIBLOCK. A lot of CAPS today.
Removed the Platinum and Rhodium toolsets, made Rhodium and Rhenium generation actually
work, removed all of the casings and replaced them with casing blocks, and removed all but two meshes.
MOD REVIEW PERMISSION:
Anyone who would like to make a mod review is free to do so. Just make sure to give a link in the description to this Minecraft Forum page, and If you want your video posted on the Forum, make sure to ask me, and I will happily post it to the page.
Wow! 4000+ downloads in Two and a half months! I'm Speechless!
I will EVENTUALLY put the recipes for everything on this forum, but for now I recommend using a mod like Craft Guide or NEI, or refer to my video.
My Video, Explains Just About Everything In Version 1.7 and beyond-
NOTE: The Multi-blocks as of 0.8 are now only the single furnace/grinder block, having different recipes with the compressed multi-blocks, which are made from the layout of the multi-blocks in a crafting table.
In 0.8.2+, Burning Compound is the main fuel source for these machines. Recipes can be found below in the Machines section.

Before Version 1.7 -
The Ores -
Jasper Ore And Its Blocks
Jasper Is mainly used as decoration as it is very common in the higher levels (80 and under) and can be
normally found in high caves or mountainsides. It can also be used in crafting of some casings, which can be used in making all of the machines.
The ores, stones and blocks can be seen in the picture.
Meteoric Iron Ore:
Meteoric Iron is a naturally found alloy between Iron and Nickel. It is the reinforced version of Iron, and as such can be used to make anvils with less materials and can be grinded into Nickel dust which can be used for other things. It is also used in the making of some machine components.
It can also be smelted into iron ingots in a Power or Blast Furnace.
The varieties of ore, blocks and ingot can bee seen in the picture.
The ore is notably rarer than Iron, only occurring up to level 50 about 1/3 of the time.
Nickel is one of the few metals in this mod that cannot be found as an ore. You can obtain its powder by putting meteoric Iron in a Grinder. It can be used for machine casing, tools and armor
The ore, tool set, armor set, block, and powders can be seen in the picture.
Molybdenum and Rhenium:
Molybdenum is an ore that can be found at the bottom of the ocean, or rarely in caves. Rhenium is very rarely found with it, or can be more commonly grinded from Molybdenum ore.
Molybdenum and Rhenium are used in the production of machine casings and meshes, as well as reproduction of Ender Pearls through Ender powder.
The ores, blocks, dust and ingots can be seen in the picture.
Cobalt is one of the more commonly found ores, just a little rarer than Iron ore. It can be used to make a Cobalt tool set, Cobalt armor and certain machine components.
The ore can generate up to Y: 45.
Platinum ore is the main component for producing Rhodium and advanced machine components.
The ore generates a smidge rarer than Emerald, but rarer and in all Biomes up to Y: 35.
The ore, ingot, powder, tool set, armor set and blocks can be seen in the picture. The tool and armor sets No longer exist as of Version 1.7+.
Rhodium Ore is no doubt the rarest of the ores. It only makes up about 0.0002 per million parts of the earth's crust. Obviously its not really THAT rare in this mod, but it is arguably rarer than diamond.
It can be used in the production of the most advanced machines.
The ore, blocks, tool set, powder, ingot and armor set can be seen in the picture. The tool set and Armor set No longer exist in version 1.7+.
Meteorites are fairly rare, only occurring at the surface at levels 65 and below. They generate with Lava and Meteorite encased Rhodium. They can only be mined with a Diamond Pickaxe.
Meteorites are a big ingredient in Burning Compound, a fuel used for the Machines in 0.8.2+ that is 9 times stronger than a Coal Block in them, as Coal Blocks are very ineffective as fuel now.
Meteorites can be grinded up into Meteorite Powder, and give off a faint glow. Meteorite Encased Rhodium has the same recipes as Rhodium Ore.
An artificially exposed Meteorite:
The Machines -
NOTE: The Multi-block structures for the machines have been postponed as of 0.8 due to my multi-block code generator (multi-block code is REALLY freaking long) having yet to update.
The machines are currently only their main, control block with a different recipe that includes compressed multi-blocks.
The recipes and smelting recipes can be found in my video, up above.
In 0.8.2+, Burning Compound is the main fuel source for these machines. Recipes can be found below in this section.
COMPLETE OVERHAUL IN 1.7+, ALL EXPLAINED HERE:
The Industrial Furnace:
The Industrial Furnace, like all of the others, is a multi-block structure.
The bottom layer consists of eight Iron Casing blocks and one Heating Core in the middle. The Industrial Furnace Block goes on top of the Heating Core.
The Industrial Furnace can smelt the commonly found ores into two ingots, but It will take some time. It can also smelt the less commonly found ores into one ingot, while the regular furnace cannot smelt them at all.
It requires 2.5 coal to smelt one ore, and can also smelt the powders made in the Grinder.
The Bottom layer:
The Grinder is an interesting machine, primarily made of gold and platinum.
The Multi-block structure consists of two layers of eight golden casing blocks surrounding a Grinder Blade block. The Grinder itself sits on top of the second layer's Grinder Blades.
It can be used to grind up the ores into a certain amount of powder, judging by their rarity. Four small piles of any powder makes one big pile of the respective type of powder.
Some dusts can be combined into alloy dusts, which then can be smelted in the other machines.
The First/Second layer:
The Blast Furnace:
The Blast Furnace is definitely the strongest machine, and the hardest to obtain.
The Blast Furnace's three Multi-block layers consist of: the Top and Bottom being nine Emerald Casing blocks, and the middle being made up of a heating core, with three Grinder Blades to the North, West and East of it, and the Blast furnace goes to the South of it with the remaining spaces being filled with Emerald Casing blocks.
The Blast Furnace can smelt the common ores (Iron, Gold, Cobalt, etc.) into three, yes THREE ingots. It can smelt the rarer ores into one or two ingots.
It takes five coal to smelt one ore and takes its lovely old time.
This is the main fuel source for the machines since 0.8.2.
The recipe can be seen up above, consisting of Meteorite Powder, Netherrack Powder, and a Coal Block for 2 Burning Compound.
Burning Compound is essential to the Machines, as it smelts 9 times more than a Block of Coal does. It is also the only fuel that works in the Blast Furnace.
Put Netherrack or Meteorite in a Grinder to obtain their respective powder. Put it in a crafting area to get 4 small powders from one big one, or vice versa.
The powders are obtained by putting most ores and some ingots into the Grinder. The small piles can be crafted into big piles, which can then usually be smelted in the respective furnace to give one ingot of the powders type.
Sometimes you can grind an ingot to get powder that may lay in the material, but is not the material itself. For example, Platinum contains traces of Rhodium and Meteoric Iron contains traces of Nickel. You can grind up one Platinum Ingot for two tiny piles of Rhodium Powder and One Meteoric Iron ore for six tiny piles of Nickel dust.
Ender Powder is used to duplicate Ender Pearls with Molybdenum Ingots. Just put one Ender Pearl into The Grinder and it gives you eight Ender Powder. It takes four Ender Powder and five Molybdenum Ingots to make an Ender Pearl, so you can effectively duplicate your Ender Pearls if you have excess Molybdenum.
Reinforced Gold is an alloy made by mixing powders. You need one big pile of Gold powder, one small pile of Nickel powder and one big pile of Iron powder to make one small pile of Reinforced Gold powder. Mix four tiny piles of Reinforced Gold powder to get one big pile of Reinforced Gold powder, then smelt the powder in the Blast Furnace to obtain one Reinforced Gold Ingot.
Fernico is an alloy made from Iron and Cobalt. You can put a tiny pile of Iron dust next to a tiny pile of Cobalt dust to get a tiny pile of Fernico. To smelt a big pile of Fernico dust you need a Power or Blast Furnace. It will give you one Fernico ingot.
Ultimet alloy is made from placing a big pile of iron dust, a big pile of molybdenum dust, a small pile of cobalt dust and a big pile of nickel dust in a 2 x 2 square in that order from right to left. And yes, that is how you spell the name of this alloy. You need to have a Blast Furnace to smelt a big pile of Ultimet dust to obtain one ingot.
Cobalt: Has 356 uses and has medium mining speed and enchantability.
Nickel: Has 450 uses, has lower mining speed and medium enchantability.
Reinforced Gold: has 500 uses, has the fastest mining speed and super high enchantability.
Fernico: has 680 uses, medium mining speed and medium enchantability.
Ultimet: has 880 uses, fast mining speed and high enchantability.
1. Look for the latest recommended forge build for 1.6.2 here.
2. Click the download link to the right that says Installer.
3. Save the installer and run it.
4. Install client should already be selected, so click install.
5. When it finishes, go to your windows search bar and type in %appdata%
6. You should then see a folder called .minecraft. Click on it.
7. go to the versions folder in .minecraft that should have a folder in it that says Forge and a bunch of numbers.
8. Create a new folder in the versions folder and name it whatever you want.
9. Go inside of the Forge folder and copy the jar file and the json file.
10. Go inside of the folder you created and paste the jar and the json inside.
11. Rename the jar and the json to exactly what you named your new folder.
12. Open the json file with a program like notepad or a .txt reader, and you should see a couple sets of quotation marks.
13. In the second set, (the ones that should say Forge-blahblahblah inside of them) write the exact name of the folder that you created inside of them and erase the Forge part.
14. Go to the launcher. Under the profiles section there should be a button that says "New Profile". Click it.
15. Put whatever profile name you want to in the "Profile Name" part.
16. In the Use Version bar, click the down arrow and you should see an option that says &amp;amp;quot;release&amp;amp;quot; whatever you named your new folder in .minecraft's version folder.
17. Select that version, click done, and run your Minecraft while using the profile you just created. When it loads, you know you now have Forge in a different profile. Yay.
Installing My Mods With Forge:
This is for people that already have Forge installed that want to install other mods.
1. Click the download link for my mod on this forum, and it should send you to a mediafire site.
2. Click "Download"; under the mediafire file.
3. Go to your .minecraft file at %appdata%.
4. If you don't have a mods folder inside of your .minecraft, make one and open it.
5. Drag, NOT extract, but drag and drop my file unopened into your mods folder.
6. Go to the Minecraft launcher and play under your installed Forge profile.
7. The mod should work! Have fun and be sure to give it feedback on the forums!

This is just a suggestion, but, if Rhodium is rarer than Diamond, shouldn't the armour and tool set be better, otherwise it would be a waste of Rhodium, when you could craft a much better set of armour out of something that's easier to find.
Apart from that, nice mod.
Also, just a suggestion, but you should add a special item for each ore, like a shield or spear or staff, to make people search for the ores after they've made the machines.

Great suggestions! I'll be sure to try and work on something similar, and thanks for the feedback!
As for the Rhodium/diamond situation, I think I may make Rhodium more common. Diamond is the strongest material on earth and I want this mod to be as realistic as possible. I may even change the way Rhodium generates completely in the future. Thanks for the support and compliments!
Wow this mod is exactly hat I have been looking for! I have been searching for hours trying to find a nice ores mod and this is perfect! Cant wait to see what you have planned for future releases. My 3000 youtube subscribers will love this is in a video. (I'm asking for permission to make a video on the mod).
I'm sorta disappointed, I was so excited for this mod and then I tried installing it and my minecraft just crashes. I tried everything! I took every other mod out to see if it was issues with my other mods but no, it still crashes. (Im using forge) I put it in my mods folder without extracting (didnt work). So then I extracted it (didnt work). I dont get it. The only mod that I didnt take out of minecraft was optifine, so unless your mod doesnt work with optifine, I got nothing.
I'm having the same problem as BluePhoenix911. I have tried absolutely everything and it crashes. I was able to install Forge right. It says it when I log in and shows that I have the 3 Forge Mods loaded, but whenever I put the Unique Ores mod in the mods folder unopened, it crashes.
Thank you so much! Love the mod. It works perfectly now. I don't know if I can apply this mod to my already loaded world. I've reloaded the chunks and haven't found any ores. The new machines do not show up on the creative items menu, but you can still craft the, which isn't that big of a deal. I have to agree about the rhodium. It doesn't seem to be worth the find if they aren't as strong. Either that or make them have different uses than diamond. Thanks again for the update!
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
No problem! Glad you got it working. I may do something different with the Rhodium in the future, but now I consider it easier to find because you can grind up platinum ingots to get 2 tiny piles of Rhodium powder. Two platinum ingots = one Rhodium ingot. Again, though, I may change it in the future. I think you may have to create a new world first, though. Thanks for the suggestions and feedback!
