Mod disables ALL other tools added by minecraft/other mods so your ONLY option is to use this trash step up program. You can change the configs, sure, but you might as well just uninstall.
What was the overall idea of this mod? I don't really understand. To add to the already existing progression system? To make tool maintenance extremely expensive? To limit the amount of "tinkering" you can do to your tools by dealing with a RNG based bonus? This entire mod is a mess and should have just been scrapped and left out to dry. I have NEVER felt this way about a minecraft mod. I usually just end up uninstalling and never using again, but this mod really irritated me. Just constant annoyance over and over again. I HIGHLY recommend ignoring this mod.
Other Bs i've run into since making this post:
-All the time you spent leveling a nice pickaxe goes to sh*t when you realize you can't put silk touch on it because you got "luck" from a random bonus.
-Config removes the ability to make obsidian in smeltery? wtf is that? Because you think obsidian plates are op? this mod..
You're talking about the best parts of the mod as if they were terrible. It's confusing.
