Ore Pings Mod

Another interesting mod that people seem to ignore people they think that it’s kind of like the X-ray mod because of its features is a mod called Ore Pings Mod. Its name explains everything already that you can use something to ping the location of the specific ores. So, let’s see if that’s way too overpowered or it’s fairly stable in its features.


Ore Pings Mod is a mod that allows you to craft single use ore pings from ores. First thing that you want to do is to make your own silk touch enchanted pickaxe with 4 diamonds and 4 papers. Then you start crafting the Blank Ore Pings which will result in 4 pieces. The recipe for that is 4 paper at every corner and 4 diamond at top, bottom, left and right and leave the middle blank. Next, you can then use the Blank Ore Ping to craft a certain types of Ore Pings whether it’s going to be Gold Ore Ping, Iron Ore Ping, Diamond Ore Ping or whatever. Simply use your silk touch enchanted pickaxe to mine some ore blocks and start crafting. Placing 4 Ore Ping in each corner and fill the rest with ore blocks. There you go, you can start using these things. When used, you and players nearby will be able to see said ores through the world for a short period of time, approximately around 20 seconds. While the Ore Ping is still functioning, I recommend you to go for them as fast as possible or you will completely waste your diamond at the very first when crafting the blank ones.

For some reasons, I really have no idea why would anyone use this Ore Pings Mod. You spend 5 diamonds and only get 4 chances to find a diamond vein, but this is really dependable on the situation you are in. However, it’s a pretty cool and fair mod not to be way too cheat as it’s fairly expensive as well as you are required to have diamond in the first place too. More than that, you must have silk touch pickaxe to do that as well.
