This mod adds new plants with various fuctions and a set of ores that can be crafted into tools and armor ranging from Iron to above diamond, the ores can also be crafted into decoration blocks with the stonecutter. It also has an explosive ore, a new petrified chert biome, and a chert dimension where a special salt grows that you can craft corn nuts from which have a range of powers that stand as a kind of potions substitute, the corn nut being crafted by one chert salt, 2 redstone, 2 glowstone, and 4 wheat seeds for the base that you need to combine with the various items to get the final cookable nut, then cook in the smoker. It would be good to watch the spotlight video below by KaedenCraft to get an idea of how the recipes work with this mod.
There are a few extra items in the Creative tabs.. These items are used for different spawn areas, being layer or dimension specific..

While the added ores are so-so, the Corn Nuts idea is pretty awesome
Question for ya, my original thoughts on the Corn Nuts was to add a "salt" made from kelp, then combine that with the seed of choice to make uncooked nuts, then cooking them for the final cooked Corn Nut.. what do you think about that? I made it easier to cook them because past mods with multiple recipes for the final product were largely criticized..
Considering what you're getting, I don't think having a slightly more involved process would be amiss. Balance is important, of course, but I genuinely liked the corn nuts idea. It was a pleasant surprise after I'd already tried everything else and said, "Hmm, what do these do?"
