I must say, i get frustrated at these editors, that allow you to accidentally navigate away from the screen and then you lose everything you just wrote.
Regardless to say, i do love playing minecraft, and enjoy creating my little worlds. I'm not an avid player, of any of my games, i just like having a little fun. I'm not really one for the Designer/Creator mode, because it feels a little like playing Doom on IDDQD. I like a challenge, but there are limits. There have times when i've spent nearly two hours mining, and barely have found enough diamonds, redstone, or even iron, to make the experience enjoyable. At this point, its just pure tedium.
Enter Ellian's Meterial Detector. It was written for many different versions, the most recent being the 1.12 version of Minecraft (with Forge) and it was a godsend. The radar was circular, and limited to about ten squares from where you were standing, but would indicate by color if there were any mine-able ores in the vicinity. The ore's were listed by minecraft block id, and you could configure which ones were on or off, and what color they were represented with. Much like any real-to-life aspect of a video game, the mining in minecraft - especially in a generated world so massive - is going to involve a modicum of tedium. However, the idea of a material radar or detector that provides a scan of the surrounding area is not so far fetch, and still only speeds up the mining process slightly.
However, I hadn't played in a while, and when starting up a game recently, thinking i would play a little with my old map, but likely start a new one to build a new castle and such, minecraft automatically updated to the 1.14 version. As such I needed to update my mods, like Forge, Xaero's Mini & World Maps, but the Ellian's Material Detector has no such update, and Forge said it was incompatible with the newest version.
I am curious as to whether or not a suitable replacement has been made? As a programmer, I even wondered if it were possible for me to simply edit the .jar file to configure it to work with the most recent version of Forge. You know, like changing a version # in the config or something. It's probably a lot more complicated then that, but Java's never really been my strong suit.
Anyway, just hoping there might be a replacement for this mod because it was seriously one of the most fantastic adaptations of the game that made playing more enjoyable for gamers like me.
MC doesn't "automatically update." When a new version becomes available, it will appear on the launcher. You need to pay attention to the drop down menu next to the PLAY button before you hit play. Any Profile you made is still available. You just need to select it from the drop down menu.
