New Updated Pictures will be coming very soon, just wanting to start updating things slowly.


A Vanilla Expansion Mod

DovahCraft Trailer


Minecraft, when it was released, was revolutionary in its own right by being one of the most popular video games to ever be created.
One thing, however, that is to be frowned upon and that is its list of Ores, and the vanilla game's Ore progression.
You've got your Irons and Golds and Diamonds and... wait that's it? What do you mean Emerald isn't a tool? 


DovahCraft aims to fill in the gaps and expand on Minecraft's lackluster progression, adding in over 10+ different types of materials for crafting tools and armor, 
as well as adding new items/blocks and reviving removed features that Minecraft once had, two of which being Crying Obsidian and Rubies.


Explore your vast open-ended worlds, mine through ravines and dungeons and craft your tools with sets like Emerald, Ruby, Cobalt, Rose Quartz and many more. Yes, even the Nether has its own share of Ore, introducing Nether Iron and Nether Gold.

Each Pickaxe of their respective material group has a specific trait to them.
For example, right-clicking a block with an Emerald Pickaxe uses durability, however it changes any block you right-click to an Emerald Ore.


DovahCraft also introduces a handful of new mobs, two new dimensions (a third is in the works) and new block mechanics, such as the Spawn Gem, StoneCutter, Materializer, and more.


Finally, DovahCraft also introduces a handful of new commands, listed below:
/wwssadad - If you're a fan of Konami, you might see this coming.
/iddqd - Gives you invulnerability for a bit.
/credits - Shows credit where it's due.
/wml - Shows your current coordinates into the chat.


So, are you ready to explore your Minecraft worlds with more Ore and new content?

Then download DovahCraft today and experience it for yourself.

If there are any bugs, please feel free to sound off in the comments, and whenever I get free time, I will do what I can to iron them out!


Due to the rendering of custom assets, using shaders while in custom dimensions will result in a shading bug. This is unavoidable AFAIK.

Very nice mod page :)

"Baldi" is a character and main antagonist from the game "Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning". I recommend watching this full gameplay video by Markiplier here:

How did you make the pickaxes lose durability when using their special abilities?
To me the "damage item" procedure doesn't work :(

Also, I've read the whole mod description (the first time I comment I didn't because I hadn't much time) and I can say that it looks awesome! The theme is a bit random, but the description and the textures are awesome! :)

Yeah, I'll admit it's a bit on the random side as well, but I had always felt that Minecraft, with only having Stone, Iron, Gold and Emerald to work with as materials for tools, was lacking in most situtations. I'm planning on adding even more, but that's not until later on. My main addition for the next release is a new dimension and possibly more mobs.

Now, to answer the question on how I make the tools lose durability, here's a screenshot of the workings of my Obsidium Pickaxe:

Note that the Obsidium Pickaxe's attribute needs for the item to be in your main-hand and the procedure is set to fire off when the item is Right-Clicked in air.

The fact that it is a bit random does not mean that it's not good.
Anyways, I should try to use that "deal damage to item" procedure again. The last time I used it was bugged, maybe it was fixed in latest updates.
