OresPlus Mod 1.7.10/1.7.2


OresPlus Mod

With OresPlus Mod, you can generate ores in your world for future use by other mods. You can also control how they generate, even regenerate ores in your existing world.
The ores this mod adds don’t actually do anything on their own. You need other mods to utilize the ores.

The grinder is crafted by surrounding a furnace with flint.
The cracker is crafted by surrounding a furnace with glass. If BuildCraft is installed, it is instead crafted with a tank on top of a furnace,
Gunpowder can be crafted with 5 saltpeter dust arranged in an X, 2 sulfur dust & 2 coal/charcoal dust
Forestry fertilizer can be crafted with Salpeter, Phosphorite & Potash. Added more than one of the sources and/or adding magnesium will increase the yield.


Requires Forge or higher


Again, this is an Beta release. I am not responsible for lost or corrupt worlds. Be sure to back up any existing worlds before running. Especially if regenerating ores.

  1. Install forge
  2. Place this in the mods folder.
  3. Profit!


v0.5.28 Beta

  • cracker recipe not working (fixes issue 13)
  • grinder not working (fixes issue 13)
  • angry pigmen were attacking for every ore in nether, not just marked ores
  • renamed storage blocks to move in line to standard ore dictionary names (for tinkers)
  • finished missing mappings handler (to handle storage block renames)
