One of the most requested mods for Minecraft is the Ore Overhaul mod. As soon as the game was released, it quickly became popular because it gives you many new types of ores and helps improve game play in many ways. In fact, this mod is also responsible for the current popularity of modpack (set of mods) like mods Required and Faster Than Light. The mod adds lots of ores and items to the game like sand, stone, iron, glass, copper, tin, Lead and cobalt to name a few. The mod makes the game play faster and more balanced.
When you start using the Ore Overhaul, you will notice that there are now more ores/items in game than before. The change was made to correct an imbalance in the ore type system of the game. Before, there were too many ore types and many chunks with only one or type. This meant that some players could dominate the game by mining certain ores faster than others.
With the Ore Overhaul, the game now uses a different ore type system which makes things more balanced. For example, there are now iron, stone, glass and cobalt ores. Each ore type can be used to produce specific blocks, but at the same time, the chances of getting an item from each ore type are balanced.
Now there are also more kinds of ores and blocks in the game. There are several new ores and blocks that are not present in the vanilla game. Those are used by the mod to differentiate the game. The most notable ones are the Glowstone, theethyst, redstone, saronite, lapis lazuli and the quartz.
Another great feature of Ore Overhaul is the block and ore type system. Because of this, the game is more fun and interesting. It has now become a co-operative game, where you help the other players in leveling up, mining the blocks and fighting monsters with the new weapons and tools provided by the mod. In addition, you can now find rare items, loot and ore on zombies, which were not found before.
This is a great game if you love the old school mining games. But also consider the fact that it will require a lot of hard work and patience in order to get the best result. But once you succeed in mining something, you will see the great benefit of the result. You will also appreciate the great change in the game due to the overhaul.
