matt can u change the image of the orb so ppl with texture packs can swap them out? i did a reskin of sphax for the orb that i wanna use but yea..
What do you mean by "change the image"? You should be able to overwrite the image in your texture pack anyways. The name for the orb is "exchangeorb:exchangeOrb" if that matters. Again, I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to graphics, so if I'm completely in the wrong with how texture packs work, feel free to let me know.
now that is nice explanation thanks soo much for this, is it possible to make a configable craftable recipe for this stone
would be awesome if there was a system u could make where ppl could even add more recipes to the stone thru via config somewhat how lucky block can do it.
I think what you're looking for is a recipe changer, of which MineTweaker would be the best for that. Once you learn their simple text file format you can remove any recipe including mine and replace it with your own.
As for adding other mod's resources, I could probably use the ore dictionary, or you could add those with MT as well.
