Ore Crystals

What's that faint glow in the distance...? Is it a way out of this cave? Is it something more sinister?

No. It's strange, crystallized metal growing from this ore... Huh. Maybe those temporal storms we've been having have something to do with it?

Deep down in the depths of the world there are many temporal mysteries. A semi-sentient creature enthroned upon a structure of crystal is one such mysteries. It seems to burst with energy, enriching the local cluster of crystals with new life, causing them to rapidly grow an an unnatural rate. They even seem to have taken over the machinery of the depths, the locusts, infesting them with crystal and somehow influenced them to be their guardians.

It may be dangerous, but perhaps...these 'hearts', and these crystals... will they be useful, in some way?


It is HIGHLY recommended to install this mod on a new world. Also, I'd like to recommend installing my other mod, Item Lights, alongside this mod since Ore Crystals items extensively use that system. It's optional, though.


My Other Mods

Meteoric Expansion: Introduces streaking meteors to the Vintage Story skies. Variable danger factor.

Item Lights: Gives items the same illumination capabilities as blocks.


Any donation support would be greatly appreciated~

It should still work with 1.15.5 without a hitch. 1.15.5 was rather minor and doesn't seem to affect things related to the mod. I just haven't tested it thoroughly myself with Ore Crystals.

Please update for 1.15.5!

@Theisgood I'd love that! If you do take some screens, feel free to post them on the forum or send me a message in Discord ^.^

If I find some ores and take some 1080p screenshots do you mind if I send them to you to use for the mods screenshots? I will only send high quality pictures. Just to show off the various crystals you created in your mod. 

Let me know mods like this make me smile and make my experience so much better.

@Theisgood You can but crystals will only appear in newly generated chunks

So I can not install unless I generate a new world? I just assuming that. Darn I should have downloaded before I got so far into the game lol
