If you feel like your Minecraft world lacks variety in terms of ores, then the Fun Ores mod will remedy that situation immediately. It’s a mod that’s filled with multitudes of different types of ores that players can utilize however they please. It’s worth mentioning that Fun Ores doesn’t really reach its full potential when used as a standalone mod since there aren’t many ways through which you can utilize all the ores that its offer but fortunately there are multiple mods available that can utilize the insane amount of ores that this mod implements so you should definitely use Fun Ores in conjunction with one of those mods.
As implied earlier, the key strength of the Fun Ores mod lies in its absolutely insane variety. The amount of ores that it adds to the game is absolutely insane, and you can think of creative ways to utilize them and put together a whole lot of highly potent items and equipment. Alongside the ores, the Fun Ores also adds to highly useful machines that you can use for your ores. The first machine is the Alloy Smelter that, as the name suggests, allows you to craft alloys by combining multiple ores together. The second machine is the Metal Furnace that you can use to make your ores more potent.
The three different ore types of the Fun Ores mod are metal ores, mob ores, and meat ores. Metal ores are of course the common type that most Minecraft players are already familiar with, but the latter two ore categories actually have a lot of unique characteristics. The Fun Ores is fully configurable so you can modify which ores can drop in the game and what frequency they’re supposed to drop at. All said and done, Fun Ores is a very useful mod that, when used in conjunction with another mod that can utilize ores, is sure to enhance your Minecraft experience to another level.
