Are your chests full of redstone again? Do you want tools better than diamond tools without getting a huge mod?
Well, my friend E-Tools (Energy Tools) are the tools for you! This small minecraft mod features a brand new tool, weapon, and armor set with special abilities that can burn off that redstone.

A Well Done Spotlight by BeckBroJack:

By default, all E-Tools have the same effectiveness and durability as diamond tools. When they run out of durability, they become defective (same stats as iron, but with infinite durability) instead of breaking. Defective tools can be upgraded back into E-Tools by using a repair recipe. Depending on the settings you have assigned the tools using the ETData.txt config file, the recipe may be either a single redstone block or eight redstone blocks. Furthermore, depending on the same setting, tools may be repairable on an anvil with either redstone dust or a redstone block.
The StandardToolRecipes.png file shows all of the tool recipes when the settings are set to inexpensive (default)
The ExpensiveToolRecipes.png file shows the recipes for if the tool settings are set to expensive (configurable)

The recently-added Energy Armor is 20% more protective than diamond armor and is, by default, just as durable as iron armor.

Also, they have the following abilities that use redstone dust (right click to use):

- Energy Blade (sword): sets ground on fire - uses 1 red stone; sets enemies on fire on attack - uses no red stone

- Air Blaster (shovel): destroys a 3x3x3 cube of dirt, sand, or gravel - uses 2 red stone

- Drill (pickaxe): Instantly destroys a single block of rock material (stone, ore, etc.) or dirt/sand/gravel - uses 1 red stone (can destroy bedrock)

- Chainsaw(axe): instantly destroys a single block of wooden material; destroys log blocks above a destroyed log block (cuts down trees) - 1 redstone

- Tiller (hoe): fertilizes/tills a 3x3 area of dirt/grass - 0 redstone; destroys a 3x3x3 cube of leaves/plants/vines - 1 redstone

- Repeater (bow): instantly fires a fully charged arrow - 1 redstone

Installation (Typical Minecraft Forge Install):
- download latest version of Minecraft Forge (install) from: http://www.minecraft.../board,3.0.html
- run Forge installer with Java SE Binary
- download mod_EnergyTools.zip from top of page or from CurseForge at: http://minecraft.cur...-powered-tools/
- extract all files from mod_EnergyTools.zip into .minecraft/versions/(forge_version)/(forge_version).jar

To use ETToolData.txt:
1. If ETToolData.txt does not exist, start Minecraft to create ETToolData.txt
2. Alter specified data values within ETToolData.txt (in .minecraft/config folder) as you would like
3. restart minecraft

I can't wait for your 1.7 update, keep this mod up to date! (Well, whenever a full MCP is out, if it isn't already [I'm not sure])

I have a mod request, a mod that adds more ways to hunt and fish, also could you make it modloader? Thanks, PMCMaster6 :)

Not a bod Idea :D. Thanks for sharing; I really appreciate it!

Unfortunately, modloader is dying and minecraft forge is taking its place. I am probably going to make all of my future mods using forge because it is a more advanced and easier to use API, ultimately allowing better mod content and compatibility. Also, forge enables multiplayer support.

great looking mod! i have a question and a suggestion, though... is there a config option for utilizing straight diamonds (not diamond blocks) for some crafting recipes? if not a cool thing to add would be an even cheaper version of some of the items utilizing only diamonds and or redstone blocks, anyways, i digress, diamond for you :D
