The current version is Alpha 2.20, for Forge 1.15.2. Unfortunately, the mod is not yet available for 1.16, but as soon as we can get support, the mod will be updated for as many versions of 1.16 as possible.

The textures for the Nether Iron, Coal, and Emerald Ores come from a Nether Gold Ore texture made by _Crackers0106 on Reddit (profile: https://www.reddit.com/user/_Crackers0106/).
-The sounds for the frozen wart block are that of dirt, instead of wart.
-The piglager trading GUI is broken.
-The piglager spawn egg is called the Piglin Villager Spawn Egg.
-The exterminator texture is slightly broken. This is of top priority.
-The new kral texture is broken. This is also of top priority.
-Exterminators take damage on soul magma.
