NO JEI, RECIPES HERE
NOTE: For 1.15.2, tools and weapons use sticks instead of metal rods.
Easy Steel & More is designed for vanilla+ play, respecting the supremacy of Diamond and providing the player with additional choices for tools, weapons, and armor. This mod adds Flint, Bronze, Steel, Titanium Alloy, Hardened Steel and Tungsten-Carbide to provide a fuller range of choices between Vanilla's Stone and Diamond.
Where the materials fit with Vanilla:
The Crack Hammer will be an important tool! Right-click on various ores and it will randomly drop 3, 2, or 1 powdered ores. There is a small chance you will just get stone powder. Drop rates can be adjusted in the config. Works on coal, iron, gold, diamond, emerald, copper, tin, titanium, and tungsten. If ore blocks from other mods have proper Forge ore tags, it will work on those as well.
It you want more balance in the game, you can disable the right-click feature of the Crack Hammer and Hand Shovel in the config file.
Minecraft 1.14 introduced a new Blast Furnace. One of the best uses of a Blast Furnace is to make alloys. This mod adds a simple method to make steel and bronze.
While many ores process faster in the Blast Furnace, compared to the regular Furnace, Carbon and Steel take much longer. Copper, tin, and bronze are a little slower than normal.
