Ores-To-Eggs Mod for Minecraft 1.7.10

Mob eggs are fairly difficult to come by in Minecraft.  In fact, without creative mode or cheats enabled, it is impossible.  This mod adds a new gameplay element that allows players to find spawn eggs in caves, stuck in blocks that must be mined.  I present to you the Ores-To-Eggs mod by ArchTehBoss!

Egg ores are fairly rare in this mod, which is one of the reasons I appreciate it so much.  It introduces a new feature while still maintaining some level of balance in the game.  These ores can spawn on the surface or underground, anywhere between 0 and 100 elevation.

Mining an ore yields that ore in its block form, similar to the process of mining iron or gold.  These cannot be smelted, however – they must be crushed with the Ore Crusher.  To create this new item, you need a diamond, two iron ingots, and two sticks:

Crushing the ore is then simply a matter of combining the block with the crusher in any crafting GUI:

 

ores_myst

 

The result is, of course, a throwable spawn egg.  The crusher can only be used four times, so use it wisely!

I would like to take a moment to point out that the developer of this mod is quite young – thirteen years old at the time of its posting, in fact.  I am always impressed by young modders and programmers in general.  If you know any other mods done by young players, please leave them in the comments below – I may feature them!
