This mod adds 69 Blocks, 94 Items (2 Armor sets, 10 Tool sets, 1 Extra sword), 14 Mobs and 3 Dimensions. The mod also has tough recipes. Using a mod that shows recipes would be a great idea! Most mod elements are encountered after you get diamonds, just so you know ahead of time. If you don't like this mod, that is okay, you don't need to.
I don't want to spoil too much of the mod's features, but i do want to help you to know what to do in the mod... so I will not describe the features too much.
For survival users, there is quite a bit of stuff to do.
Story: You go on to do your casual mining trip when something barely gets your attention, a shiny ore you have never seen before along with a portal frame and, for some reason, you think that it may be a sign for help. You decide to mine the ore and create the trigger to start the adventure.
In order to start the adventure, you have to get a lot of "Extar" from Extar Ore underground, then you can craft Extar Blocks and an Extar Apple to create the portal to The Extar, it would be useful to craft some Extar Tools and Armor, you'll then have to kill many Monsters from The Extar to obtain seeds, 4 monster types drop a special type of seeds and each monster has a special ability. When you get the seeds from the extar monsters, combine them to craft an item to summon Bipex, the servant of darkness. Once you defeat bipex, use his loot to craft another portal frame and use a bipearl to light the portal.
The second dimension is pretty bugged. Once there, just grab some ore, simple. Craft a nether ruby to fight the nether golem, when you defeat the nether golem, he will place a portal frame... use dark powder to activate the portal.
When you reach the third portal, mine some ores from the sky and some ores underground. The ores are rare. Use the ores for tools and the summoner for the final boss of this mod, The darkness of the extar. Fight him off to end the hostility of the extar! (This is a planned feature for when procedures get better.)
