"This" is the Cobble Galore mod for Minecraft 1.8! With this mod, you can finally put all that cobblestone you accumulate while mining to good use! New blocks, materials, and recipes are added which allow to consume large amounts of cobblestone in exchange for useful tools and building materials.
As far as balancing goes, it seems to be fairly well balanced, in that to obtain the most powerful of the new materials, it will take QUITE a lot of cobblestone.
As far as development: it's nowhere near its final form. While we hope it's at least at a point where it can be considered presentable, we certainly plan to add more as time progresses. This mod is in alpha, so please do not be too surprised if you see any bugs, and if you do, please report them.
