Lettered Ores 1.6.1 for 1.3

Better recognizable ores with colored letters

  1. Amadox
    Updates on the version available here might lag behind actual development.
    However, you can find the newest version of this mod on Steam Workshop, which also includes support for Frackin' Universe Ores:


    For Non-Steam-Users, you can download the newest version here:

    I found it difficult to recognize the differences between various ores. Worst offenders were Platinum vs Silver vs Titanium, and Gold vs Solarium. Although I'm not colorblind, I guess players who are will have an even harder time to distinguish various ores.

    So I added a small letter colored like the ore itself above each ore type, to make them better recognizable.

    The result can be seen here:


    The Mod is intended for Beta v. Upbeat Giraffe.

    Works well in Combination with Illuminated Ores:

    I downloaded this mod primarily to find Isogen, Pyreite and Effigium because they may be hard to notice (especially Effigium), but they are unlettered :(
    I heard there is an updated version on Steam but I use GOG version.

    I liked it a lot, it's very useful and lightweight, the small letters is great it does not disturb the vision of the mineral elements.

    Essesntial mod because of stupid ore designs by developers

    Version: 1.1 for Upbeat Giraffe
    Although I don't use this mod because I don't really like seeing letters everywhere, this idea is fantastic! I would have never thought of it, and it's indeed a very useful, but incredibly simple mod. Well done!

    Really awesome. What puzzled me is that it only works with some ores from FrackingUniverse. If only all of them worked, it would be perfect

    Makes it much easier to tell which ore I'm after when the colors are so similar in vanilla.

    With this combined with illuminated ores and glowing chests, I no longer feel the need to cheat as it makes the game so much faster and easier to jump into and play on the fly. Great Work. And thanks for making this.
