Mineralogy

The Minerology mod aims to provide a much more realistic geologic layout to the game. It gives you several new types of stone and layers the ground in a better accordance with sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rock layers.

Sand looks more like actual sand and mountains are broken up into layers as well.

With all these new layers you’ll get many new minerals that are mostly aesthetic but give you a bunch of new options for building with stone blocks. Plus you can make polished blocks with many of the new minerals when you stack 4 together.

And you can now mine gypsum so when combined with paper you can make drywall. Add that with any color dye and you can make actual thin walls for your home.

Unfortunately it won’t work quite as well on current saves so you’ll need to create a new world in order for the layers to take effect.

  2. Do the different layers become harder to mine because that would add something cool to the game!

  3. “The Minerology mod aims to provide a much more realistic geographic layout to the game.” “geographic” -> “geological”

  4. this reminds me of mining of course but maybe they could make smelting armor or smelting picks so when you braek a ore it automatically smelts and if it is over lava it teleports to you
