A simple datapack that makes mining for cobblestone more chill because you don't have to avoid Andesite, Diorite, nor Granite.

This datapack:
  • Adds Andesite, Diorite, and Granite to the furnace- and stone tool materials.
  • Includes the use of Cobblestone alternatives (including Blackstone) for Brewing stands, Dispensers, Droppers, Levers, Observers, and Pistons.
CompatibilityMinecraft 1.16

Hello! May I include this datapack in my Terralith overworld generation pack? I will give all appropriate credit!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for this datapack! I have been playing with Forge mods for several years but had never touched datapacks. I host a custom modded server for some friends, and we ran into an issue where some world gen mods were generating biomes with absolutely no stone. Some times they would fill entire cave systems with stone-types that were added by a different mod. For example, some combination of Terraforged, Quark, Biomes O Plenty and Better Caves worked together to generate a cave system consisting almost entirely of "Dolomite" from the Create mod... which does absolutely nothing outside of Create recipes, making for a very unpleasant caving experience.

With the nice simple way you put this datapack together I was able to discern that all I had to do was edit the stone_crafting_materials.json file to add the stone types from other mods... and it worked!!!

For example, where the file says .....


I simply changed it to:

"minecraft:diorite","minecraft:granite", "create:dolomite"]]

And now dolomite from the Create mod can be used for all of the cobblestone crafting recipes!

I think I've figured out how the recipes work too, so I will also be adding stone pressure plates, just for consistency.

Thank you again for making this! I was surprised just how hard it was to find something that did what your datapack does... and I was super happy to see that it was modular enough (likely because of the "minecraft:" prefix on the stone types) to be easily modified to include blocks from mods.
