How do I get my Ore excavator to work?

Answered by Frank Schwing

To get your Ore Excavation mod to work in Minecraft, you’ll need to follow a few simple steps. I’ll walk you through the process below:

1. Download the mod:
– Visit the CurseForge website and search for “Ore Excavation mod” in the search bar.
– Look for the latest version of the mod that is compatible with your Minecraft version.
– Click on the download button to save the mod file (.jar) to your computer.

2. Install Minecraft Forge:
– Minecraft Forge is a modding platform that allows you to run mods in Minecraft.
– Visit the official Minecraft Forge website and download the installer for the version of Minecraft you’re using.
– Run the installer and follow the on-screen instructions to install Minecraft Forge.
– Make sure you select the correct Minecraft version and installation directory during the process.

3. Install the Ore Excavation mod:
– Open the Minecraft Launcher and make sure you have selected the Minecraft Forge version you installed from the drop-down menu.
– Launch Minecraft with the Forge profile.
– Once in the game, click on “Mods” in the main menu. This will open the Mods screen.
– Confirm that the Ore Excavation mod is listed in the mods list.
– If the mod is not listed, click on the “Open Mods Folder” button at the bottom left corner of the screen.
– This will open the mods folder on your computer. Simply drag and drop the Ore Excavation mod file into this folder.
– Close the mods folder and return to the Minecraft game.
– Go back to the Mods screen, and you should now see Ore Excavation in the list.
– Make sure the mod is enabled by clicking on the checkbox next to it.

4. Configure the mod (optional):
– Once the mod is installed and enabled, you can customize its settings to your liking.
– In the Mods screen, click on the “Config” button next to the Ore Excavation mod.
– This will open the mod’s configuration file, where you can adjust various options such as the keybinds and excavation modes.
– Take some time to explore the configuration options and adjust them according to your preferences.
– Save the changes and exit the configuration file.

5. Start using the Ore Excavation mod:
– Once everything is set up, you can start using the Ore Excavation mod in your Minecraft game.
– In the game, simply hold down the excavation key (by default, it is the grave/backtick key `) while pointing at a block.
– The mod will automatically break and collect all connected blocks of the same type within your excavation range.
– You can adjust the excavation range, excavation mode, and other settings in the mod’s configuration to suit your needs.

Remember to always check for updates to the mod and Minecraft Forge to ensure compatibility and access to new features.
