The Ruby Mod For MC 1.4.7
Tools, Lamps, Fuel, And Food made with Rubies

VERY IMPORTANT: If you already have the Ruby Mod for MC 1.4.7 YOU NEED to update it to this current version. A serious bug was discovered that prevented ruby gems from appearing / working properly. To update, just download the current version and follow the installation instructions below.

I was reading a while back that when people who play Minecraft for the first time see redstone, they sometimes think that it will give them rubies, not redstone. This mod allows people to have rubies in their Minecraft world.

Let's get started. Everything in this mod revolves around the ruby gem. To get a ruby gem you need to find ruby ore. Ruby ore is found deep underground(level 32 and below), and is quite rare. Up to 10 ores can spawn per vein.

This ore can be mined with any tier of pickaxe. When you mine it it will drop a ruby gem:

If you have a silk touch pickaxe, you can smelt the ruby ore into a gem.

You can make ruby tools:

A Ruby Pickaxe

Posted Image
A Ruby Hoe

Posted Image
A Ruby Sword

Posted Image
A Ruby Shovel / Spade

Posted Image
A Ruby Axe

These ruby tools are better than diamonds (they last longer). They also have more enchantability than gold tools.

You can create ruby coal to use as fuel in a furnace, and only that. Ruby coal can smelt many more items than coal. You craft ruby coal like this:

As you can see you get two ruby coal.

You can also make ruby blocks:

You can also make ruby melons:

When eaten they heal 6 hunger. They can also be fed to wolves, but I have never tried that.

I have also added ruby armor:

I suppose the texture isn't the best, but its alright. To craft the armor just use the regular armor recipe, but use ruby gems:

(Before the recipes I would like to let you know that the ruby gem icon below is what you will see in the actual mod. I didn't update the pictures above)

Ruby Helmet

Posted Image
Ruby Chestplate

Posted Image
Ruby Leggings

Posted Image
Ruby Boots

I've also added ruby lamps back into the mod:

To craft a ruby lamp you need glowstone dust and ruby gems:

I think that's it for now!

Mod Spotlight by skipdigity (http://www.youtube.com/user/skipdigity):

A few things have changed since he has done this mod spotlight:

*Ruby blocks no longer glow
*There is armor
*Ruby ore can only be found underground at level 32 or below

After a long period of inactivity, I have updated this mod to Minecraft 1.4.7! Everything is the same as it was in 1.3.2.

VERY IMPORTANT: If you already have the Ruby Mod for MC 1.4.7 YOU NEED to update it to this current version. A serious bug was discovered that prevented ruby gems from appearing / working properly. To update, just download the current version and follow the installation instructions below.

DOWNLOAD: Click here to download the Ruby Mod For MC 1.4.7 - Requires ModLoader
NOTE: This modifies sv.class and uq.class - it may not be compatible with other mods

To install: Install ModLoader (if you don't have it). Then, extract the downloaded zip. Drag these files into your minecraft.jar and delete Meta-inf if it exists.


*(Possible) Add ruby TNT (crafting recipe out of TNT and ruby gems), makes a bigger explosion than regular TNT, and has less fuse time.

Feel free to distribute this mod, but link back to this forum thread.
You can include this mod in modpacks.
You can do a mod showcase on it.

I hope you like it :-)

Note about using Minecraft Forge: It would be possible to use Minecraft Forge for this mod so I wouldn't have to modify base classes. However, many people, including me have problems installing this mod so I will pass on using MC Forge. What is my problem? I drag all the class files into a clean minecraft.jar, and MC says it is missing a class that is clearly there. If you want me to make my mod compatible with yours by adding your tool / armor material I would be happy to do that, just post a reply to this thread.

Hmm some improvements would be nice.Do you see that overused ruby texture in the terrain file.Why don't you use that because I don't think these ruby's look really ruby like.No offence.And the ruby ore should use some improvements too so use the old ruby texture.You can get it in here:http://www.mojang.co...apshot-week-21/
I hope this helps improving the ruby textures because that ruby just stands there not being used.
Edit:Oh and the ruby block should be like the emerald block but it should have a circle inside it.(NOO I JUST BROKE A MC RULE)



Posted 27 August 2012 - 06:25 PM

I made the textures myself. What I did:

Turned diamond into ruby gem by coloring it red
Turned redstone ore into ruby ore by coloring it dark red

I actually tried to use emerald block, but it didn't work out. (I modified Iron block instead).

Endermanvscreeper1, I updated the ruby gem texture. I made the emerald gem red using an image editor: Posted Image

To install it open your minecraft.jar, navigate to the 'rubymod' folder, and drag this file into that folder. Enjoy!

Hey I noticed you didn't have any videos up for this cool mod and I know thats what makes me want to download them, after I can watch all the cool features, so I made a mod spotlight. I really want this mod to get some attention so that it continues to be updated and worked on. If you want to add this mod spotlight to the video section of this page that would be awesome. Thanks



Posted 29 August 2012 - 08:51 PM

Thanks skipdig for that wonderful mod spotlight. I have just finished adding ruby armor to the mod, so I will update the original post. I will also put your video into my mod post.

I'd also like to say that I changed the ruby ore generation so its even rarer (it only spawns below level 32, and only up to 10 ore per vein). The only reason you don't get XP when you mine the ore is I don't know how to do it. The mod tutorials I have been following don't have that. I looked elsewhere, and I couldn't find it. Sorry I couldn't impliment it!

I did the ruby mod showcase, but maybe too late for the armor? Let me know what you think and if you want me to do the updated version.

Great mod review. It would be nice if you could do an updated spotlight (no pressure). I don't think there will be any new features with the mod, so right now would be a great time to update your spotlight.

I actually take that back about the "feature freeze". I do plan to add some ores in the nether, along with tools and armor made with that gem. If you could wait until I've finished that, that would be great.
