Current Version: 4.1.0 for Minecraft 1.12.2; 3.6.0 for Minecraft 1.11.2
What is it?
In previous versions of Minecraft, I really enjoyed the Nether Ores mod that was included in most modpacks. Sadly since we all have to update eventually, my friends and I have began playing with 1.8.9 and grabbing all the mods we've found updated. Unfortunately the original Nether Ores hasn't been updated, and since I'd been playing with modding anyway, I decided why not fill in the gap!
What does it do?
First and foremost it changes the vanilla ore spawns in the overworld. The vanilla ores are completely blocked from spawning naturally, and instead are loaded in, in a custom way: They're more spaced out with a lower frequency, but when you DO find them, they have a larger vein size, meaning a lot more of what you DO find.
Ores also generate in the Nether, as well as the End, at any height! They have a higher than vanilla frequency but come with greater challenge due to their location.

How to install:
Requires the recommended version of Minecraft Forge or newer. With forge installed, it's as simple as dropping into the "mods" folder and enjoying!
Moving forward, new features will be coming to the 1.11.2* version only.
*When 1.13 is released, support for 1.11.2 will be dropped
Do whatever you want. You don't have to ask me.
All code was written, and all textures made by me (using the vanilla textures). Sooouu... It's totally open source and free for anyone to redistribute and modify! You can find the source here.
