Subterranean Switcheroo Mod 1.12.2 (or “Subswitch”) allows you to simply drop it into a large pack without having to change a whole lot of recipes or modify world-gen too much, and the vanilla resources’ appearance rates will be more in line with how much of them mods will demand, in a larger tech-mod focused setting. Except for leather. You’re on your own there.
Subterranean Switcheroo Mod 1.12.2 – Weird Rocks
- Fusion ores are pretty simple. A Red-Iron ore, for example, can be turned into Redstone or Iron, depending on which one you need. Note that all fusion ores are immune to both Fortune and Ore Processing, so as to allow players to use these ores freely, rather than holding onto them until they have the perfect ore processing setup. They also do not replace vanilla ores, but generate in addition to them, meaning that this will overall increase the amount of these resources available to you.
Nether things & Other ores:
- Obsidian ore looks and behaves much nicer now, and Nicer Nether is back with a slightly more vanilla feel, and all of the “nether survival” stuff removed. Enjoy some decoration blocks and Netherrack Tools in this version. Also, clay ore. Because other mods added clay underground, but not using a pickaxe on it always felt weird.
- Finally, two tiers of sifting tools are added, made with wood and Iron, which can be used to turn Gravel into flint, and also to process blue flowers that spawn around the world into Lapis Lazuli at a very slow rate. Also good for getting a little extra Redstone out of fusion ores, and breaking obsidian into chunks. The Wooden ones break pretty darn fast, while the Iron ones will never break at all.
