Available for Minecraft 1.7.10 through 1.12.2!
Wooden tools are hardly ever used in real life. During the Stone Age, caveman preferred hard rocks like Flint. It makes more sense!
Flint Instead of Wood removes recipes for wooden tools and replaces them with recipes for flint tools. These flint tools have configurable durability and mining level. It makes gravel a little more useful at the beginning of the game and adds to the realism of Minecraft tools.
The flint shovel has a bonus chance of harvesting flint from gravel!
Flint Spade (bonus chance to harvest flint)
Flint Hatchet (possibly the most important tool)
Flint Knife (slightly faster than a sword)
Flint Pick (the second-most important tool)
By default, wooden tools cannot be crafted and it hurts to harvest wood by hand. You can still harvest wood unless you turn that off in the config. In that case, break leaves to get sticks.
Other config options:
Toggle which Flint Tools can be crafted
Toggle whether to remove all wooden tool recipes
Toggle whether to remove all stone tool recipes
Toggle whether you can break a log without an axe
Toggle whether loot chests use flint tools instead of wooden ones (8.1+)
Toggle whether you are hurt by breaking a log without a tool (does not trigger if logs cannot break)
Adjust flint tool durability
Adjust flint tool harvest level
Adjust the percent chance of sticks dropping from leaves (set to 0 to disable)
