Description:

This is a new mod that implements many different tools and additions to mining. It was made to improve the mining experience! Enjoy!

How To:
Crafting:

Craft a Grappling Hook:
undefined

Craft a Flare Gun:
undefined

Craft Flares:
undefined

Craft a Miner Helmet:
undefined

Craft Tools and Armor normally!

Ores:


Many new ores are added in this mod. A list of them includes:

- Chance Ore
- Mystical Ore
- Lucky Ores
- Ruby Ore
- Sapphire Ore

Chance Ore randomly drops any material that you can find mining (besides lapis lazuli), but with a 10% chance that it will trigger an almost lethal blow, taking damage from it depends on how far away you are from it.

Mystical Ore randomly drops rare or somewhat rare materials.

Lucky Ores are an upgrade to vanilla ores. If you've seen my old mod, the Lucky Ores mod, then you'll know what these are. Basically, there is lucky coal ore, lucky iron ore, lucky gold ore, and lucky diamond ore, and when you find these lit up ores, they will drop a small random number of the material you would get. So if you mine lucky iron ore, you will get iron ingots.

Ruby Ore and Sapphire Ore drop rubies and sapphires. These can be used to create standard tools and armor.

Grappling Hook:

If you're in a hole and don't have blocks to nerd pole out, just have your grappling hook in your hotbar, and you can climb out like you had a ladder!

Flare Gun:

With flares in your hotbar, you can fire the flare gun to signal other players! 

Miner Helmet:

With the miner helmet on your head, you will have infinite nightvision to see in the dark while mining, without needing to place torches!

I want to use this mod so badly but i have to download minecraft pc.  Does minecraft pc mess up your computer?  I have an old coputer and it doesnt work that well.  it is really laggy and im scared of messing up my laptop, have to buy another laptop and spend another 27 dollars.  please let me know if it is safe to download pc and download mods.

Lol, downloading Minecraft for PC is completely safe. There's no need to be afraid of spending another 27 dollars either because your account is held by Mojang, not by your computer. You can download Minecraft for PC any time you want to, as many times as you want to.

Hey! First of all, love the mod. Second of all, could I have the specific item names/how you did your item names in your file? I'm also running VeinMiner, and I'd like to use the items that you've given in the mod with it, however I can't add it to the config if I don't know the specific "BetterMining:<pickaxe/axe/shovel/etc name here>"
Also, the ore item names would be useful!
Thank you!

make it 1.7.10 downloadable please
One thing to never, ever do:



Ask modders to downgrade

This mod was previously available for 1.7.2 so it's not a downgrade request. The old link appears to be gone.
Ah. My mistake.

Nvm, works now.
Any way I can get this with just the Ruby and Sapphire Ores, Tools and Armor?
This mod is a littttle buggy. when i mine the chance, ruby, saphire, and mystical ore it just stays the ore and i can't smelt it. 


bug? am i doing it wrong? please respond.

ill incorporate the smelting for ruby and sapphire ores, but the point of chance and mystical is to mine them, not smelt them.

Yeah, I know. Everyone likes a little variety. I've been adding more things to the mod though, like a miner's helmet which gives you night vision so you don't need torches when you're shafting, and also a flare gun, which right now only shoots snowballs, but I'm going to try to get it to shoot fireworks eventually, so that you can show your position to other players.

Cheers :)
maybe if you make ore mobs? when killed it will give you the ore the animal\mob is presented in? like emerald sheeps hidden in ravines, gold skeleton in a normal cave, and a ruby/sapphire creeper, and maybe even a titanium wither skeleton in the nether, let me know what you think about this :)
Jond, may I make a Showcase of this mod aswell (if you didnt get my other question on your other mod)

add lucky rainbow ingots to make OP armor and tools. that rarely drop from lucky ores (and) even more rarley, for chance ore (it should also drop less from chance) and you can do anything you want for it and mystical ores.
