This mod requires ModLoader.
This mod allows the player to craft tools out of gold, steel, and diamond blocks. It also adds obsidian ingots and obsidian bricks, both of which can also be crafted into tools.
I've released a 1.4.7 update for the mod, v1.16! Check the change log!
Please note that every time I change the announcements, the color of the text changes too, so that you can easily see if there is anything new.

What does this mod do?
Look at the beginning of the thread. I've stated the purpose of the mod there.
How good are these tools?
Very good! Here are the specs:
*When using 2, it's the reinforced version of the respective tool.
**Harvest level determines what tier of ores the tool can mine.
***How fast the tools mine their corresponding blocks.
Can I ask you a question?
Equivalent Exchange - This mod makes it easier for the player to acquire diamonds and other things to help you build these reinforced items.
ModLoader - Makes the mod work O.O
Putting an obsidian brick into a crafting grid will allow you to get back the nine obsidian ingots it took to make the brick. This should basically have been in the mod since I added the obsidian brick, but better late than never.
Some major balancing stuff I did. When I first set the values for the new tools, I completely messed the math up (instead of multiplying by either 11 or 9), I multiplied by 27, yeah, so big mistake fixed right here. This, of course means, that tools are extremely nerfed, but rightly so, as the tools were overpowered by far.
-Lowered max uses from 6750 to 2250 (keep in mind regular diamond tools have 1561 uses).
-Lowered efficiency on proper material from 8 to 7 (regular iron tools have a value of 6 and diamond tools have 8)
Reinforced Diamond Tools:
-Lowered max uses from 42147 to 14049.
Reinforced Golden Tools:
-Lowered max uses from 864 to 352.
-Increased max uses from 2033 to 3122.
Reinforced Obsidian Tools:
-Lowered max uses from 72000 to 28098.
-Added obsidian bricks (crafted by putting 9 obsidian ingots together in the workbench.)
-Added Reinforced Obsidian Tools to the mod (made using obsidian bricks and metal rods.)
-Nerfed the regular obsidian tools (refer to FAQ section).
-Updated for MC 1.00 (now 1.25)!
-Added regular obsidian tools.
-New textures for the tools.
-Added Stick and Ingot (made by putting a stick and iron ingot next to each other, putting the item back in the crafting grid would result in getting your ingot back).
-Added Metal Rod (made by smelting the stick and ingot).
-Changed recipes to, instead of using sticks, now use metal rods.
-Fixed the fact that reinforced gold tools were made by dirt, not golden blocks.
Thank you rbailey5 for making the textures for the tools!
