Do you ever wish you had more options when it comes to ores and tools? The M-Ore mod might be just the thing you need. This mod adds 13 new materials to Minecraft including both ores and ingots.
These ores will naturally spawn but many of them will only spawn in certain biomes. The added ores allow you to create new armor and tools/weapons with increased specs for longevity and damage. The new armor seems to be simply additional options in place of Diamond armor as the most protective. Although Ruby now seems to be the new strongest ore for tools.
You can also improve your iron tools by combining a meteorite block creating “fired” tools. This new addition gives added strength/uses to some of your weaker tools.
But what I feel is the most impressive addition with this mod is the Uranium TNT made with smelted Uranium.
It cannot, in the mod’s current release, be triggered on its own. It requires a normal TNT block to be triggered within range of the uranium TNT. But the result is enormous.
