What is this mod?

Ebon Arts is a mod that brings various new ores to discover and new blocks/models to build with, along with several tools, achievements, music, and equipment to spice up the life of an adventurer.  This mod also has various quality of life add-ons that allows the creation of various vanilla items that you normally cannot craft, all able to be enabled/disabled via the configs.

Note for Modpack Creators

Everyone is free to use this mod in any modpack they want. I only ask that you give me credit (Viesis), don't make money off of it (keeping it free), and have a link back to this site (if you can). Otherwise, have fun with it!

Mod Future 


This mod rewrite, "Viesis' Gemstones", is coming along very well. I think I have my new Gemstone workbench working exactly how I want it to (minus hopper annoyances I may not be able to fix in time) and all basic gemstones (9 in total) are in game with multiple cosmetic block choices (108 blocks).


Again, I plan on keeping this old Ebon Arts mod up for anyone who would like to use it instead. I want to add more blocks and implement my new legendary weapon system, but that may come post launch.


Notable changes:

- Created a subsystem to be able to add gemstone variants easier (like how 'cryptic' blocks work).

- Overhauled the Velious, Katcheen, Onyxius (obsidian), and Carnelian (glowstone) items/blocks. 

- Removed gemstone 'tiers' to make more sense.

- Touched up a lot of the textures.

- Removed the 3 crops (they were painfully useless)

- Added a Gemstone Workbench. Instead of having massive world gen for all of my gems, you can place any items/blocks in this workbench to process items into potential gems.

- Expanding and redesigning the legendary weapon system.



- Going forward, this mod will be updated for mainly 1.10.2 and the newest version out (currently 1.11.2). It was killing me putting out 7 versions of this mod.
