Through a bit of magic and random nature sheep have developed the ability to grow metal wool. Allowing for a renewable way to harvest materials without care of the costs.


If you have not caught on this mod as new passive mob in the same style of the sheep. This sheep has the ability to grow a range of defined metal types. Allowing for automated farming of resources without the need to constantly mine. It was based off a quick few jokes and ideas we had surround metal resource plants. The sheep mob works the same as a normal sheep. With the only key difference being spawn chance and that wool can be smelted into resource. 


The mod also comes with 2 resources for usage. First being the wool itself which can be harvested and melted into nuggets. The second being the wool block which can be crafted from the item. Allowing for a nice decorative building block or again smelted into ingots.
