This mod requires forge to be installed. You simply extract the jar file into your mods folder.

Read the update log for the new features. (Current version: 1.0.7)

UPDATE AND INFO: Updated the mod for minecraft 1.12, and the newest forge version. I have started modding again, and will add a few features to this mod in the next few days. Any feedback is appreciated!

  • New and improved UI
  • A change to how the mod impacts the game(making it more game-like, with a few different blocks with changing functionality).
  • Feel free to requiest features that you would like to see added.

Hello there, i am xcisso, and i'm back with a new mod.
The Ore Sniffer is a block that scans the area around it and marks the ore and minerals for you. I found it quite useful, so i decided to upload it. When you place it down, it scans a 13x13x13 area around it.
You craft it by using iron ingots and a diamond, as shown on the above image.

You can also configure what to display when you right click on the Ore Sniffer. (Toggle the ores/materials on and off, as well as distance). Everything should work fine on SMP, altough i havent tried it myself.
If you find any bugs, or have any suggestions, please post them in the comments below, or send me a PM. (I will read them all).

This is a small and simple addon, so not too much to write here. Just hope you all enjoy this addon!

Please make a Mega OreSniffer Block and it should be crafted like this
  • E=emerald
  • B=Block of diamond
  • O=oresniffer


Something like that
and also change the waypoints default to on
that would be really helpful i forget to turn it on sometimes

Hey man.
Please add a feature where you can change the ICON of the custom ores  and we should be able to choose from any items in the creative menu.
That would be really helpful to avoid confusion.

I have not tested it for 1.7.2, but it would not surprise me if it works. Try it :)
