The purpose of GMC's SimpleCraft mod is to make subtle, but much-needed additions to Minecraft. It adds obsidian, quartz, and emerald tools, as well as emerald armor. In addition, it also adds crafting recipes for saddles, name tags, and horse armor.
This mod is currently made for Minecraft version 1.7.10, and requires Forge in order to work. Once you have downloaded the .jar file , drop it into your "mods" folder.
The crafting recipes for the tools and armor are the same as normal tools and armor, except that they use their respective materials (obsidian for obsidian tools, emeralds for emerald tools and armor, etc). The recipes for name tags, horse armor, and saddles are as follows:
Use the same concept for gold and diamond horse armor, just replace the iron with the respective material. Also, the wool can be any color.

Feel free to comment below with any ideas, suggestions, or bug reports that you may have. However, please do not comment asking me to update/downgrade the mod to 1.x minecraft version. I will update the mod when I have time, and I do not plan on downgrading the mod to previous versions.
