Mineral Dwellers

Mineral Dwellers is a mod that adds, well you guessed it... Mineral Dwellers. These are ore-like mobs that appear in caves and their Nether variants in Nether Wastes. There are even Ore Dictionary variants meaning this is supposed to go with other mods that require and / or use Ore Dictionary. Upon death, they will drop their respective minerals and if their variant's ore requires smelting, they will drop chunks (Smelt the chunks to acquire the ingot).

Other videos of mine about the mod:

lf you want a version with only vanilla variants, check this mod out by cIicking here!

You can run the command /excavation_bosstheme_toggle to toggle the Excavation's battle theme on and off.


Summoning this boss won't be an easy task as it requires a Nether Star and a silk touch pickaxe. Not to mention it gets even harder since it even requires emerald ore.

First of all, you need to obtain a Nether Star. This is done by of course, taking down a Wither.

Once you have a Nether Star, drop it on a Mineral Dweller. This will "enchant" the dweller and give it some new buffs. No, it does NOT work on the Nether variants.

Upon "enchanting" the dweller, it will drop a "Worn-out Nether Star" which are the remains of a Nether Star.
Don't worry, you can repair it with the following crafting recipe:


Enchanted Mineral Dweller


Health: 50 (25 Hearts)

Damage: Melee = 7 (3 and a half Hearts), Pebbles = 4 (2 Hearts)

New Drop: Mineral Nexus

After obtaining the Mineral Nexus, make sure to keep it safe.

Now, obtain an obsidian frame.
This is done by surrounding eight obsidian beams around a crafting table.


To acquire obsidian beams, put two obsidian blocks vertically in a crafting table like how you'd normaIIy craft sticks.


Now construct an altar like so (5 Obsidian, 4 Cobblestone and 1 Obsidian Frame):

Once you've done that, drop 1 redstone ore, lapis ore, diamond ore, iron ore, gold ore and emerald ore on the obsidian frame and that should fill it up.

Once you've completed all these steps, you are ready to go.

Right-click the filled obsidian frame with a Mineral Nexus and prepare for a difficult fight.

This mod also has its own advancement progression to spice up the fun!

This is neat!

Only thing I'd say is the models could look a little cleaner (textures are a bit stretched)
Nice job!
