The Ores & Coins mod adds all sorts of new ores and coins to Minecraft. But you probably guessed that by reading the name.
Specifically, this mod adds a furnace that lets players create ore alloys like Electrum. You can also create copper, chain main, and coins that you can use to purchase items from merchants. If you’re more of a long-term investment kind of Minecraft player, you can also store your coins at a bank.
The new ores come with all the weapons, tools, and armor you would expect. From copper, for example, you can create a:
-Block of copper
Merchants will now spawn in your Minecraft world. To interact with a merchant, simply right click on him. You can also do neat tricks with the merchant. For example, right clicking on the merchant with a ruby will turn that ruby into a sapphire, and right clicking on the merchant with a sapphire will turn the sapphire into an emerald – and this keeps going on until you have the most valuable ore.
Merchants spawn in plains and forests and will drop coins. If you want a merchant to follow you around, simply hold a gold coin in your hand. The coin system has different tiers. Gold coins are worth more than silver coins, for example, and silver coins are worth more than copper coins.
The alloy furnace looks similar to a vanilla furnace. There are two spots in which you can place ore ingots. Place a gold ingot and a silver ingot into the alloy furnace to make Electrum, for example, which is a real material that is made by combining gold and silver.
All of the new materials in the Ores & Coins Mod can be used to make new tools, armor, weapons, blocks, and aesthetic pieces. It’s a deep mod that adds plenty of new and exciting ores to your game.
