Level 19 : Journeyman Miner

Version 3.1 has been released. I fixed a couple bugs and made some small changes. See changelog for more info. :)


Version 3.0 is live!! To celebrate 5k downloads, I've made another update!

3.0 adds 2 new enchantments to the mod--Fancy Feet and Flower Power.
-Fancy Feet: Be extra! Leave a path of tiny flowers whenever you walk across grass. All the cool kids are doing it.

-Flower Power: This special enchant goes on a shovel, and has two purposes: It lets you harvest Ornamental Grass, and you can use your enchanted shovel to create a Path.

I've also included a few changes to the Ornamental Grass, as well as implemented some requests regarding Ore Dictionary and textures.

I hope everyone enjoys the update. Thanks to all of you who have been playing this mod. I am so grateful--without you, this wouldn't be possible! <3

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.

The mod now has a config file that will allow you to customize your playing experience.

You now have the option to adjust the chance for the Ornamental Forest biome to spawn.

In addition, 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!

1. Fixed an issue with clay mix recipe.
2. Adjusted ore generation and biome rarity.

It's not working at all? It's just a mod not a pack, not sure if that is helpful to you...did you install it into your mods folder?
