Example Mod: Thorium
This chapter is the first of two example chapters for modding. This first mod is based on the concept of a new type of block called Thorium. You will learn how to create an ore for this block that will be distributed about a world, ready to be mined. We will then develop the concept, so that when the ore is mined, it creates a Thorium block (Figure 10-1).
You will also learn how to use the new block in crafting recipes.
