Pickaxe Count: 56
This mod adds in new pickaxes. There will be a description of each pickaxe and their use. This mod is balanced to be what I believe is as best as I can get it and will attempt to maintain the balanced nature of the game by not adding in any really overpowered pickaxes without having them require appropriate
All pickaxes are crafted like normal pickaxes unless stated otherwise. The letter R before a pickaxe means reinforced, the letter H means hypertension.

Mod Notes -
- Some crafting recipes for items have not yet been created. They will be added in the final major update.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or find a bug, then leave a comment. Thank you.
12/27/2018: I am working on adding new pickaxes right now, each major update of the mod will consist of at least 10 new pickaxes.
1/26/2019: It's been about a month, but I'm back with a pretty big update. Checkout the changelog if you wish to see everything that was added in this update. I didn't add 10 pickaxes like I promised, but I added plenty of other items that should (hopefully) compensate for only 6 new pickaxes. This update is very buggy for some pickaxes, but I'm working on it.
2/5/2019: The mod is almost complete with a few minor things to be added in a bug fix update. I don't plan on adding in too many more pickaxes, but we'll see. I plan on making a partner mod to go along with this one, but I want to make sure that this mod is finished and polished out first. All of the major bugs have been fixed so all that's left now is just the polishing (as well as possible new items). Version 1.2 is available now along with the change log, which I highly suggest that everyone sees.
One last major updated will be made. Anything after that will simply be for bug fixes.
