I am no longer maintaining this mod. I have too much going on between family, work and home lately that time has drawn thin. So I have asked RobZ51 of the GemsPlus mod to take over my code and he will be continuing the work I have started with this mod.
This mod, another former part of MTJT, adds 27 new Ores to the game. Originally when it was part of MTJT there only 12, however as my mod grew and ideas were expanded, so did much of the aspects of of the mod. As the mod grew in various directions I began to wonder how I would accommodate for the growth of each aspect. Needless to say the mod became a nightmare to maintain in its larger form, and being only one person doing the coding, textures, posting, and all, I decided to break down the mod into the various pieces of what it is now. Better Gems and Ores is just that, Gems and Ores. There are some custom enum materials, lots of ingots and gems, some tools and a few other nice custom things. All my ores and ingots and gems even use the ore dictionary as well. This is a functional yet not a complete vision of what is ultimately intended. This mod also adds a new furnace type block called the tumbler. It runs off a generator, tumbles rocks, in this case ingots, a lot slower than a standard furnace which after all it is creating gem stones. So I hope by now I have you at least a little interested, so lets see, what new ores and gems are in the mod.
Ores and Blocks
Along with the above there is also tools and armor, tools are made from marble and black ingots, and there are also 3 swords...Black, Marble and Granite. As for armor there are marble, amethyst, sapphire and granite, all of which are made from ingots and crafted the usual way.

Lets face it, stealing is stealing. Therefore I am forced to post this copyright claim.....
