I'm sorry if this seems like a stupid post. I did actually do some research before posting.
I am looking for a simple mod to make mining faster. In particular, I don't like that it takes 15 seconds to mine obsidian. I am trying to make an obsidian house. I found a few large pools of lava but mining for hours to get it all, is not how I want to spend my free time.
I did find a couple of mods that should address this but they are not working with the current version of the game. So my question is, can anyone recommend a mod that will help me and works with the current version of Minecraft?
