A great SimpleOres 2 review! Thanks to BioMasterZap!

  • Version 1.3.0 is now out.
  • Huge number of changes. Netherrocks is also now a plugin, so it requires SimpleOres. Check the changelogs for details.
  • Almost all info has been moved to the wiki. As such, that will be the main location for stats, details etc. It's still a WIP, so missing images and whatnot are expected.
  • Version 1.3.2 just released, fixed a number of bugs.

SimpleOres started as a small mod I created mostly for myself. It was my first serious mod, and for me, it was more about learning new things. As SimpleOres' popularity grew, it became apparent why people found the mod so attractive: it was extremely balanced, more so than any other ore mod at the time. Along with a growing popularity, SimpleOres' feature list began to grow too, totaling to 5 ores, the tools and armor associated with those, and a number of other small features.

In July of 2013, I decided it was time to take the next step with SimpleOres 2. Despite striking out against the idea of its name somewhat, I added in a "Fusion" system to the mod, which allowed the creation of 3 alloys. A heap of other new features were added, some simply cosmetic. The mod got bigger, and possibly more complicated, but hopefully it will still be fairly easy to just jump in and play. Many of the recipes follow the style of Vanilla recipes, and nothing drastically changes the feel of the game, being more of an extension rather than a makeover.

Please, play with the mod and feel free to leave a reply Posted Image

There are three download options: one with all plugins included, one with only the Fusion plugin included, and one only with the core SimpleOres 2 mod. Choose the one that suits you. The plugins can also be found separately in the plugins section. SimpleOres 2 will now also tell you when there is an update available, so you can always be using the best version of SimpleOres Posted Image Old SimpleOres 2 Downloads. (Old SimpleOres 1 Downloads)

SimpleOres Wikia!

All information about SimpleOres 2 and the official plugins can now be found on the wiki. This includes recipes, stats, effects, etc. The wiki is still a WIP though, so there missing images, dead links, etc. are expected.

Posted Image
Below are the official SimpleOres 2 Plugins, made by myself. There are also unofficial plugins. Plugin discussion has its own thread, so if you are wishing to develop a plugin for SimpleOres 2 please do so at the SimpleOres 2 Plugin Development Thread. Any plugin development questions asked here will be ignored.

Posted Image
There are alternate textures for SimpleOres, some of which can be found on the Alternate Textures thread. However, most, if not all, are not updated to the 1.6 format. The thread needs revamping, so I will get to it soon.

SimpleOres 2 and all official plugins support integrated localisations. This means that more translations can be easily added, and are used when you switch the Minecraft language (provided there is a SimpleOres 2 translation available for that language). Below are the currently support translations. Please feel free to translate it into your preferred language and send it to me if it doesn't already exist.

SimpleOres 2
Fusion Plugin
If you want to offer a translation, please feel free to do so Posted Image I will add it to the mod and include it in the list "assets/langs". It MUST be UTF-8.

Source Code:
Since SimpleOres 2 and all official plugins are OpenSource now, you can find all the source here: SimpleOres GitHub.

The only thing left to say is a huge thank you, to all of you. To all the players of this mod, to those who offered feed back, helped with bugs, and to those who (mostly unknowingly) aided me with any Java issues I got stuck on. Thank you to Mojang for creating the game, thank you to the MCP team, and thank you to the Forge team!

I suppose I could have it, but silver and copper were created to bridge the gaps between cloth and iron, and iron and diamond respectively. Where would brass go? :P

silver looks to much like iron

The copper and silver textures look like they were stolen from Metallurgy. Just wanted to point that out.

Great simple mod if you are bored with ordinary ores. Although i think copper is a bit too common and excessive. I seem to find it every minute or so. and the veins of copper are huge. I literally just found a vein of copper that had 73 COPPER ORE!!! Other than that though its a mod that makes gives Minecraft a bit more of a goal. Looking forward to future mod improvements and updates!

You know that's an alloy of copper and zinc right? Wouldn't make sense for it to be an ore.

I like this mod, simple, compatible with things, helpful.

However, I found a bug. The Onyx Shovel isn't really a shovel, it's a pickaxe, haha. Just so you know.

Adding this mod to favourites. Thank you.

Very nice! I love ore mods like this, and this one doesn't seem to have any major problems.

A few small bugs, however...

Onyx Ore drops an Onyx Ore block, not an Onyx Ore gem, I don't know if that's intentional or not. Right now, you need to smelt the ore block to get the gem.

What the user above said is also true

You can't parry with the swords.

Make ore storage blocks!

Once again, great mod. :)

Are you planning on developing this for survival multiplayer?



Posted 02 January 2012 - 06:50 AM

Wow this got a lot of views and comments extrememly quick. Thanks for all the feedback guys, I had thought no one was interested.

Okay so to "mitchellgud" you really found 73 copper? Wow. And yes, I have tweaked the spawn rate of copper in v1.1, which will be coming soon.

"Firespar", I did make the Onyx like that on purpose but have also changed it to a bar for v1.1. Have also added the storage blocks for v1.1 :P

"BarX" thankyou for letting me know, will fix it for v1.1 :P

"frigidas1", what do you expect? We add ores tools armor. I tried to add a no falling damage effect when you wear full onyx armor, but I can't seem to get it to work with Minecraft 1.0.0 so I cut it out.

"MR.Mod" I was going to add tin, but mithril is a much better idea, thankyou :)

"threehill" I am redoing all the textures for v1.1 to keep them consistent, as I also have to add in the hoes.

"Dragonchampion" I have never even looked at metallurgy, I did these myself with paint.net ahahah :P they are just hue/saturation edits of the diamond ore.

"urbanwave" I may be developing it for SMP, I just don't know how to do that yet. May look into it after the release of v1.1.

Thanks for supporting this guys, v1.1 will be along soon now that I have some motivation to update it :)

Also, what do you think of a new block called a Disassembler? I was thinking you could use it to pull apart certain items (swords) into different parts, and then another block called a Reassembler, which you can then assemble those parts back in different ways to make better items. like a sword made of 3 different parts of different swords. Rather than just crafting 3 swords to make a more powerful one. What do you guys think? It wont be coming for v1.1 at any rate, if I look into it.

Thanks once again guys :D

Thankyou for that review :) do you think you could do one for version 1.1, even though it would only add a few extra things, however then I can put it in the main post? That would be awesome if you did :)

And btw, onyx only spawns in the nether :P I'm pretty sure I said that in the original post hahaha :P

Thankyou :)
