Ores mods are always popular with the Minecraft community. Now, from the modder who created the Simple Ores mod comes a mod called Netherrocks.
The Netherrocks Mod, as you might expect, adds rocks and ores to the Nether. These ores have unique properties that make it easier to navigate the Nether, including invincibility to fire and lava damage.
This mod is relatively small and simply adds six new ores to the game, including:
All of these ores can be found in the Nether. Only three of the ores, however, can be made into tools, armor pieces, and weapons (Dragonstone, Malachite and Illumenite).
Each ore has its own unique properties. Malachite, for example, has high enchantability and is extremely common. Malachite tools have the same speed as diamond tools but only half the number of uses, so you’ll want to make good use of your enchantments. Malachite armor not only looks awesome, but can also be enchanted to have special properties.
Ashstone, on the other hand, can be used to craft tools and weapons but not armor. It is extremely fast and rarer than most other ores in the Nether. If you like speed above all else, then you’ll definitely appreciate finding Ashstone.
Illumenite is unique and spawns in glowstone deposits. It looks similar to glowstone but has a more golden hue.
Here are some of the special armor sets, weapons, and tools available in the Netherrocks mod:
-Fyrite Armor: This armor set makes players invincible to fire and lava damage.
-Fyrite Pickaxe: The Fyrite Pickaxe auto smelts items as you mine them, taking a step out of your resource harvesting process.
-Illumenite Armor: Prevents players from taking fall damage.
-Illumenite weapons: Slows down enemy mobs for 10 seconds and grants the weapon wielder 3 full minutes of night vision.
-Argonite tools: Argonite is the Nether’s version of diamonds. It features very similar properties to diamonds, although it does have a higher enchantability rating.
-Dragonstone tools and weapons: Dragonstone has a higher number of uses than any other ore in this mod or in vanilla Minecraft. Weapons and tools crafted with Dragonstone ore can be used 4000 times. Dragonstone tools and weapons also have a high enchantability rating.
With 6 new ores and dozens of new tools, weapons, and armor pieces, the Netherrock Mod is a small mod with big potential. If you want to make the Nether a more interesting place to explore while also building some cool new items, then try out the Netherrock Mod today.
