STATUS: This is a mod currently in development, and will stay that way until all aspects, ideas and plans are finished. This might take a long time, as currently ( 1 ) person is/are working on it! To read a list of planned features, visit the Features tab below.
FEATURES: Click on the Spoiler below to read a list of planned features. This list will eventually be moved to a more eye-friendly spread sheet.
> ITEMS: Items that will be integrated into the game, and can be obtained via 100% Vanilla means.
Sticks or Rods are the base of all tools, and they all work identical to Vanilla sticks.
~ Ender Stick ~ Nether Star Rod ~ Netherrack Stick ~ Nether Quartz Rod ~ Obsidian Rod ~ Diamond Rod ~ Iron Rod ~ Coal Stick ~ Gold Rod ~ Sandstone Stick ~ Redstone Rod ~ Lapis Lazuli Rod ~ Emerald Rod ~ Glass Rod
~ Blaze Stick
~ Nether Brick Rod ~ Flint Rod
~ Charcoal Stick
Ingots; Ingots are created after Raw Ingots are smelted, and Raw Ingots can be created from their Chunk counterparts. Ingots are required in making Rods, as well as the tool heads themselves. ~ Ender Ingot ~ Nether Star Ingot ~ Netherrack Ingot ~ Nether Quartz Ingot ~ Obsidian Ingot ~ Diamond Ingot ~ Coal Ingot ~ Sandstone Ingot ~ Redstone Ingot ~ Lapis Lazuli Ingot ~ Emerald Ingot ~ Glass Ingot
~ Blaze Ingot
~ Flint Ingot ~ Charcoal Ingot
Chunks; Chunks are dropped from their respective ore blocks. They each drop 1 of the listed chunk, but vary by vein numbers. ~ Ender Chunk ~ Nether Star Chunk ~ Netherrack Chunk ~ Obsidian Chunk ~ Sandstone Chunk ~ Emerald Piece ~ Glass Chunk
Raw Ingots; The Ingots section has counterparts that are essentially raw versions of themselves. All the ingots need to smelted before hand to be used in any crafting recipe. This adds a sort of necessary buffer to the crafting process.
Tools; Every Ingot and Stick/Rod listed above can be combined to make a tool that varies in efficiency and durability. Some might even have special perks.
>BLOCKS: Blocks that will be integrated into the game, and can be obtained via 100% Vanilla means.
Nothing here yet, check in soon!
MAP: This mod will also come with a companion map, specifically designed for the testing and creation of all Tools, Modifications, Ores and other newly implemented features.
DISCLAIMER:This mod is NOT intended to be a copy of Tinker's Construct. Tinker's adds a variety of new metals as well as a well thought out smelting system. This mod is intended to add more variety to Vanilla Minecraft, rather than new materials.
This is currently the end of this thread! Be sure to check in for more updates and amazing content. I hope to have a stable test build running by the end of April of 2017 ; Hopefully sooner!
