This is a rather small mod directed to builders which makes the different rock types drop their respective block types.
This mod is included with my other mod, Variety is the spice of the Universe. Don't download both.
Without this mod, all types of rock drop the same exact type of cobblestone with minor color differences.
But with this mod, you can now obtain and place all 10 types of rock!
They were also given names.
They're probably inaccurate though.. It's hard to tell when they're so pixellated!
From left to right...
Conglomerate | Andesite | Gritstone | Gneiss | Mudstone | Gabbro | Dacite | Arkose | Chert | Limestone
All obtained rocks are initially unrefined, so you can't do much with them but build. If you want to refine them to be able to craft with them, you have to smelt the rocks at a furnace to get cobblestone at a 3 ratio.
Question: What is the point of this mod, anyway? / Why should I install it?
Answer: The mod is designed for builders or generally anybody who ever wishes they could use all of the unrefined stones.
There was a topic about this on the forums, actually! Here it is.
Question: Any plans on expanding the size of this mod?
Answer: Depends. Have any ideas? There isn't really that much that you can do with raw stone!
Question: Wait. If you need cobblestone for a furnace, but a furnace for cobblestone...
Answer: Don't worry! The stone found in forests still drops cobblestone.
Question: Wouldn't this take up more inventory space?
Answer: A little, but you can turn it into cobblestone quite quickly at a furnace anyway.
