The Advanced Finders mod gives you three new compasses to help you find metals, gems, or minerals. And all you need to do is craft it and follow the needle.
The needle will change color depending on what ore it finds. That makes it easier to differentiate where it’s directing you and if it’s to something you’re interested in. It even shows multiple needles if there are multiple sources close by.
Gems are usually rarer so it may take some snooping to get in range, but it works just the same as the other finders and the needle will pop up when something is close.
And if it’s metals you need then simply pull up the metal finder and dig away!
This mod also requires an additional API found here.DownloadForumInstall Guide
