The TreeOres mod is perfect for Minecraft players who are sick and tired of digging into the ground to find their coal, metals and other natural resources. While you’ll still need to do that initially to get your hands on your first few pieces of iron, gold or whatever else, you can remove the need to keep mining by creating special ore tree saplings. These saplings can be planted back up on the surface like normal trees, except when you chop them down they yield the same ore that was their source instead of any wood blocks. It’s really kind of cool seeing those metal trees too.
There is a handy config file for adjusting the sapling drop rates from normal ore blocks. The “foliage” from the ore trees will also drop saplings at a little chance, just like regular tree leaves have a chance to drop their appropriate seedlings. These can also have their drop rates adjusted using the included config file, but that’s about as much as the player can control in this mod. Many of the ore types will have corresponding ore monsters which appear if you farm the ore through trees too often. It’s not like they’re really on a schedule though – they just have a random chance of showing up.
As for the special saplings, they’re somewhat expensive to craft. If you want a gold tree, you’ll need to surround a normal tree sapling with 8 gold blocks – not ingots – blocks. That’s 72 ingots total and not something which will be easy to get your hands on. Once you get some of the TreeOres mod’s special trees going though, you’ll never run out of metal again. There are also exp trees, special transformers for converting metals and a number of other interesting items to craft and master.
