Netherrocks adds 6 more ores to the base game that are found only in the Nether: Argonite, Ashstone, Dragonstone, Fyrite, Illumenite, and Malachite. Each ore has its own unique properties, armor and tool sets, and more. Dragonstone, ashstone, and argonite range from tough to extremely tough. Fyrite is a metal of heat and fire; fyrite tools set things on fire or cook them, while fyrite armor protects the wearer from lava. Illumenite glows brightly, and an illumenite sword lets you see in darkness for a short time when you attack someone, and may blind your target briefly. Malachite armor is very light, and lets you jump higher, while malachite swords are poisonous to their targets.
Netherrocks for 1.16.3 and later REQUIRES SimpleCoreLib.
Netherrocks for 1.14.4 through 1.16.1 does not require SimpleOres API.
Netherrocks also adds a furnace, smoker and blast furnace powered by nether fuels such as netherrack, blaze rods, or fyrite.
