In vanilla Minecraft, players don’t have much incentive to go to the nether. The Nether Ores mod changes that. It forces all of the over-world ores – including coal, diamond, gold, copper, tin, lapis, redstone and iron – to spawn in the nether.
This mod effectively turns the nether into a treasure chest of valuable ores. It’s a great place to mine – except for one catch: the zombie pigmen don’t like it when you steal their resources, and they will attack you on sight.
And, to make the nether a little more interesting, the Nether Ores mod will randomly cause some ores to explode when you mine them. Why? Apparently, the time spent underground has made these ores unstable, and even bumping against some of the ore can cause it to explode or spontaneously combust. Just exposing some ores to air will cause them to catch on fire or explode in your face.
Of course, just like in vanilla Minecraft, there is also a constant danger of falling into a lava pool while exploring the nether. Ultimately, players have to carefully watch their step for vicious zombie pigmen, exploding ore, and other hazards.
If you wanted a good reason to explore the nether, then you’ll like the Nether Ores mod. Check it out today and start mining ore from deep underground.
