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.

For all recipes, please use an Inventory mod such as JEI or NEI.

Now, one thing that MCreator does (or doesn't do), is have a check for the current item durability. That is one thing I faced when creating some of the attributes. What this means is, a player can continuously spam Obsidium's ability way past the item's durability, resulting in a negative value. (The next update will feature all Pickaxes having their own special attributes.)

There might be a way around this, but I'll need to look into it further. As of right now, however, that is not on my priority list, but it is in mind.

Currently working on the rest of the Pickaxe's attributes. There's a few more features in the next update that I'm planning on uploading tomorrow morning, one of which being the Stonecutter, with a custom UI and craftable Double Stone Slabs and other blocks, as well as a new dimension that... I wouldn't say "new", but the textures are... *Alpha*mazing. (I'm... really sorry.)

Stay tuned! And thanks everybody for awarding me with Mod of the Week!
