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
1
Only downwards, it would be great if it works forward as well, So that it can dig forward. It is dangerous to dig downwards.
1
great suggestion! I'll try adding that in the future
1
PLEASE MAKE more stuff like this, like maybe a grappling hook just some things that would make survival fun and better
1
I'm pretty sure there's already an addon like that somewhere
1
is it compatible with any addon
1
this addon does not use the player.json file so it's compatible with almost every addon
