Don't you just hate it when you find out that you spent all day chopping down wood and didn't get any iron yet? Well you're in luck cause a new mod has arrived! What this mod basically does is adds new armors, these armors can be crafted like any other armor with using cobblestone and stone. Such a stupid mod you say? well that's just you, this is one of the only mod of this type that's updated to latest minecraft.

I see insane potential with this mod, especially for servers. It's such a huge advantage to have such readily available armor. If this were a server plugin, I'd focus on setting up my server so that players who meet certain criterion can craft this armor... it would be great for things like factions where a large faction is supplying a large amount of people.
I will make a forge compatible version and I am still working on how to make a server mod, cheers
Should technically already be Forge compatible (Forge-ModLoader ftw), but it's probably still a good idea to remake it for forge. Forge mods work for both SSP and SMP, no need to make different versions for each.
I use forge over everything, so I can't actually use the mod without forge. I think you'll find a lot more downloads happening if you make it forge compatible. xD
Anyway. I like the idea of a slightly upgraded sword with the cobblestone sword being the weaker version. I'd say the strength of the old stone sword... I know it's a simple mod, but I'd say let your creative side flow and add more to it. My reasoning is that it's such a hassle to install mods for such a basic purpose, even if it is a good one.
