This mod adds several types decorative building blocks, a new biome, and new crafting items to the game.

The biome, which is called The Ornamental Forest, is full of colorful trees. The trees vary in sizes, and some have vines that naturally grow on them. Throughout the forest, glowing mushrooms can be found growing on trees. This helps to light your way while you're exploring the forest. The tree leaves can be harvested for their blossoms, using a special pair of pruning shears. The blossoms can then be pulverized into pigment, using a Mortar & Pestle, or they can be used as decorations to place in special vases.

The pigments created from the blossoms are used to color clay for bricks, or to make stain for colored wood blocks.

There are several new gemstone ores, which drop chunks of gemstone that can be broken up into fragments using the Mortar & Pestle. The fragments can then be used with grout to create decorative tile blocks.

The trees can be harvested for saplings, the same way as normal trees can be. There are also 2 new potions, which require essences that can be found by chopping wood, harvesting blossoms, or mining ores. The potions give you double drops on wood logs and ores, or give you the ability to harvest blossoms without pruning shears.

Maiden's Materials Manual: An easy to read, illustrated guide to getting the most out of this mod. This item will immediately spawn in inventory upon creating a new world.
Configuration (Spoiler--Click to reveal)

The mod now has a config file that will allow you to customize your playing experience. You can choose which trees inside the Ornamental Forest have vines. So feel free to pick and choose there.

You can also control vine growth, which means you can now pick and choose which vines you'd like to have growing. Note: once you turn vines off, they won't grow, even when placed. They will need to be turned back on in order to grow again.

The final thing you can do with the config file is control ore generation. Each ore type in my mod is now completely customizable. So if you want obscene amounts of one kind of ore, but none of another, you can make that happen.

A warning about ore customization: Be aware that by adjusting these settings you can possibly cause your game to lag or to crash. So be careful with it, and just use common sense when setting the ore generation to your liking.

The config file can be found in your Minecraft settings folder, in .minecraft/config/maidensmaterials

Final note:

I've hidden a small secret within the mod. Your clue for it is this: Drinking the potion of Floral Fortune can really give you a green thumb. Good luck!

Hey, everyone. I submitted the mod here but because I am new to PMC, it took several days to get approved, and when I updated the changelog for it, it went back into the approval queue. It's been 8 days now, still not approved on here. So in the meantime, you can find the most recent version of the mod through the link at the top of this post. Hopefully it will get approved here on PMC soon. I made several changes to the mod, including a configuration file where you can choose what trees will spawn inside the Ornamental Forest, and you can choose to turn off the vine growth, too. You can also customize the ore generation, as well as the biome rarity. I hope you all enjoy it. :)
