The Mob Drop Ores mod is something lots of Minecraft players have been waiting on for a long time. You know how all those monsters you kill underground just kind of poof and disappear? Well history has taught us that’s not what happens to animal remains. They typically become fossilized instead and stuck in whatever rock they end up dying near. This mod makes it so that when you break ores below the surface of the world, they will sometimes have a chance of dropping items you would normally get from mobs – like a coal ore block dropping a piece of rotten flesh, for instance.
This might sound kind of overpowered – shouldn’t you have to kill monsters to get their drops? Well, for players who prefer to make it through Minecraft while being passive, this mod allows them to play the way they want. Besides that, the Mob Drop Ores mod makes it possible to get access to some very rare mob drops at a very early point in the game. Things like nether stars which only drop from the game’s final boss can actually be found tucked away at the bottom of the world. That particular ore only spawns at y:3 or below and at a rate of about 1 per 15 chunks, with a drop rate of 1%. Good luck with that.
Fortunately, all the other ore drops are much kinder. You’ll find yourself stacking up goodies like string and bones while you do your normal mining thing, which can help prevent you from needing to go out into the middle of the night to fight monsters, or from building a massive grinder. Who wants to spend hours building before they can even start enjoying their game? If you’re looking for a quirky mod with effects that you won’t find anywhere else, try the Mob Drop Ores mod.
