Hello everybody and welcome to, Welcome to my first Minecraft mod: GTFO. This is an open source mod, if you wish to contribute, or view the code please take a gander at the github: https://github.com/Reignofmagic/GTFO Link to the Curseforge: http://minecraft.curseforge.com/mc-mods/235912-gtfo-gems-are-truly-fabulous-and-outrageous Here is a video I put together to highlight this mod: Version 1.1 Version 1.0 Here is an Imgur Album with all current features of this mod: http://imgur.com/a/gbzuE#0 DOWNLOAD Via CurseForge Main Points Adds in 9 ores for the various gems types that are already present in other mods, so this mod can be run in conjunction with them, or by itself. Adds in tools, and armor for each gem type, as well as a gem block. This includes all vanilla tools such as Pickaxe, Axe, Shovel, Hoe, and Sword. In addition to these five base tools I have added in a Dual Tool for each tier that acts as both a Pickaxe and a Shovel. The tiers of gems are as follows. Topaz Malachite Quartz (Vanilla Minecraft) Amber Tanzanite Diamond (Vanilla Minecraft) Peridot Sapphire Ruby Emerald (Vanilla Minecraft) Amethyst Jet (Can only be mined with Amethyst or Cobalt equivalent pickaxe) This Mod's starting point is with Topaz which is slightly better than a stone pickaxe, and leather armor and ending with jet which has over 4x the durability, damage, 2x protection of diamond gear. Each tool, or piece of armor builds upon the previous tier as a crafting material. The ores also get rarer as the quality of the gem improves. Topaz being slightly more rare than coal/iron Amethyst and Jet spawning around 2 ores per chunk. AOE Tools (Large Variants of normal tools) mine in a 3x3x1 area for their respective types. Crafting recipes are a "hat" of Gem Blocks over the tool over a stick for the normal Large Variants. For the Dual Tool it is a Large Shovel over a Large Pickaxe over a stick. Or previous tier of Large Dual Tool surrounded by the next tier up of Gem Blocks. Universal Repair Materials Gem Putty/Dense Gem Putty Repair 9200 or 32700 durability for 20/30 levels respectively. In addition they allow renaming of items for 5/0 levels respectively Planned Additions to this mod for future releases Potentially add another tier of gem which will not generate in the world Storage Blocks Light Sources Super AOE Tools (Something like 5x5x5 area) Permissions: You can use this mod for a modpack, fork the code, copy code, whatever. This is open source and free to use. I made this simply to learn some basics of minecraft modding and if it helps anyone that would make me happy! All I ask is that you link back to this post or the curseforge page for credit. Special Thanks: Special thanks to all those who helped me in this journey.
