Hi, folks. I had to stop playing Minecraft (too obsessed!) and so I hadn't made any updates. Buuz135 has graciously offered to take over the mod, so good luck to him!

Thank you, these are great! I'll get a release together which includes them soon. I'm also working on a few bugs.

I've uploaded the Minecraft 1.8 jar for version 0.7. Same changes as for 1.7.10, primarily a config file which can control almost all aspects of the mod.

I've uploaded the 1.7.10 part of version 0.7. This includes a config file which can control almost everything about the mod, and it removes the dependency on CoFHLib. The Minecraft 1.8 release for the 0.7 version is in the works.

I'm working on a version which will make these things and more changeable via a config file. The Beyond Reality Divergence guys were looking for some similar control.

That would be great, thank you!

Version 0.6 fixes yet another server-side crash ("NoClassDefFoundError: org/lwjgl/input/Keyboard"). On the up-side my testing methodology is improving!
There are releases of 0.6 for both 1.8 and 1.7.10.
The next release should include a config file.

Version 0.5 is done and uploaded.
This version updates the mod for Minecraft 1.8. It also removes the dependency on CoFHLib.

I've uploaded version 0.4 of the Ore Dowsing mod.
This version fixes a crash which happened when playing on a server.

I've just uploaded version 0.3 of the Ore Dowsing mod.
This version adds colors for nether ores and the ability to upgrade the range of the Diamond Dowsing Rod by adding more diamonds to it.

You can already detect modded ores, anything ore-like registered in the ore dictionary should work.
I also set up colors for a bunch of common ores (certus, copper, lead, mithril, nickel (ferrous), osmium, platinum (shiny), silver, tin, and all the Thaumcraft ores). I thought about tackling Metallurgy but I was daunted.

Thanks. I don't like the textures either :-), making sprites is not my forte. If anybody wanted to supply something better I'd love to use it.

I've released version 0.2 of the mod. Ores are now colored according to their type, so you can pick things out when using the Diamond Dowsing Rod:
Here you can see coal, iron, redstone, lapis, gold, and diamond ores.
Requirements are the same as before.

Excellent, thanks for that! I will have to move localization to the top of the to-do list.
BTW I've been working on it a bit more and I'm getting a version ready which gives each ore its own color outline, very handy with the "detect all ores" setting of the diamond dowsing rod.

The Ore Dowsing mod provides items called Dowsing Rods which can help find ores and other blocks. When you right-click with a Dowsing Rod it highlights ores which it finds in a cube around you (sized from 9x9x9 to 17x17x17 depending on the tier). Which ores it highlights is also dependent on the tier.
The highest-tier rod (diamond) can also be set to target a specific ore of your choice, or even non-ores. This can be used for various cheaty and non-cheaty tasks, such as finding chests in a mine or stronghold, or highlighting a pipe system in your base.
