The Pickaxe Ores Mod is definitely one of the most peculiar Minecraft mods out there but nonetheless it’s a very convenient one that adds a whole lot of ease to the gameplay. It basically allows players to mine pickaxes the same way they mine ores. It’s rather weird since you’re using pickaxes to mine more pickaxes but the option to do this is still quite convenient since you’ll no longer have to go through the tedious process of crafting a whole pickaxe and can just mine one. Although it might be a bit overly simple at first sight, there’s actually a fair bit of depth to this mod, and there are a bunch of crucial details that players need to remember in order to use it properly.
Of course, it’s worth keeping in mind that before using the Pickaxe Ores mod you’ll need to have access to at least one pickaxe, but that’s pretty much all you need to make the most out of it. The process of using it is pretty simple as you just have to mine the pickaxe ores like you mine the standard in-game ores. Each different kind of pickaxe ore spawns in a different location, for example, the diamond pickaxe ore only spawns in the nether.
In order to mine a pickaxe ore in the Pickaxe Ores mod, you’ll need to have a pickaxe that’s a tier below the one that you need to mine. For example, if you want to mine a diamond pickaxe ore then you need to have an iron or gold pickaxe, and if you need to mine and iron pickaxe ore then, you’ll need to have a stone pickaxe available. There were a few texture issues with the mod at the time of release, but these have been patched out, so it functions just fine in its current state.
