Installation Guides

Not sure this has much value... if you can’t detect forward you can’t find what your looking for... also... it should give you either a distance away or list coordinates for ore.. otherwise you can’t really find any
Only downwards, it would be great if it works forward as well, So that it can dig forward. It is dangerous to dig downwards.
great suggestion! I'll try adding that in the future
PLEASE MAKE more stuff like this, like maybe a grappling hook just some things that would make survival fun and better
I'm pretty sure there's already an addon like that somewhere
is it compatible with any addon
this addon does not use the player.json file so it's compatible with almost every addon

cool addon. I suggest that creating a level 2 detector should include a level 1 detector instead of an end eye
