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.

Hey guys!

So I'm currently working on some updates, one that will be out by tomorrow morning will include some bug fixes that were not addressed for Update 1.0. These include some crafting issues, some UI improvements, small things. If you guys find any bugs, please let me know so I can iron them out!

Also, if there any suggestions and/or comments about what I could add next, I'm totally open to them!

why do you have terraria ores/souls

Please review the mod details in the above description -- "Essential Creepers: New Creeper-type mobs that drop Essences needed to craft saber-type weapons." The textures seem to fit the design well, so I decided to use it. All credits go to the original sources, explained with the "/credits" command in-game.

**Update for Version 1.5 Beta

No, this mod isn't dead, just been really busy with work and real world stuff. As of right now, there is a new spreadsheet that lists all of the materials that are in DovahCraft (even ones that I am currently working on, but don't have any internal data just yet). There's a good bit of content in the next update, so please stay tuned!

Update 1.5 Beta is now LIVE! If you are currently using DovahCraft, please upgrade to version 1.5 -- older versions have already been removed from the download tab, except for version 1.0.

As always, if there are any bugs/issues, please comment and I will do what I can to iron them out! Thank you guys so much!

Thanks! I have a new update in the works, however it might take some time. (Work has been taking up some time.)
