Diamonds are very rare in the Minecraft world. It usually takes a lot of lucky digging in order to find a diamond, which is why many Minecraft players have resorted to using mods and tools in order to do dig up the diamonds they need.
Whether you consider diamond-finder mods to be cheating or not, they’re certainly a lesser level of cheating than the Too Many Items mod, which simply allows players to duplicate whatever items they need.
That’s why it’s easy to appreciate a mod called Diamond Meter for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5. Diamond Meter is a new mod that adds a device to players’ inventory. When this device is held in the quick bar, it indicates if there is any diamond ore near the player.
The mod is incredibly easy to use and players have to be relatively close to diamond ore in order for the meter to activate. This makes the mod feel a lot less ‘cheap’ than other diamond finder mods, where the player is often given the direction in which the ore lies along – or even the exact minimap coordinates.
You’ve got better things to do than sift through hundreds of blocks looking for a rare diamond block. Don’t waste your time – install the Diamond Meter mod today and you won’t even feel like cheating.
