MaterialDetector Mod 1.8/1.7.10/1.7.5/1.7.4/1.7.2

MaterialDetector Mod

This mod is a a material detector. Its features are:

  • Show the surrounding material at your level/height map
  • Indicate (far or not far) a given material with a direction to dig for

The detector shows also the other materials that are in the list and not only the selected material.

Only the blocks that are 2 blocks deep or 2 blocks above are shown.

This way, while searching for iron, you can easily found coal.

The water and lava is also displayed using this mechanism in order to avoid to dig into lava directly

Warning: As it can be used to dig very easily some rare materials, it can be consider as a CHEAT.

This mod is compatible with the latest release of Mod loader or with Minecraft Forge (the one corresponding to the latest release of minecraft).

Detector in horizontal mode: (current material selected is diamond)

In the detector screen, you can see some arrows, it will indicate the way to dig (up or down).

Two arrows mean that the material is more than 10 blocks away.

Detector in vertical mode: (used to display caves before digging straight down)
