  • Everyone skips straight to Iron equipment-wise.

    I think this is a bit of a shame, as I rather like the addition of Bronze into the game.

    Therefore, I think that Iron Ore should require a Bronze or higher tier pickaxe to break, forcing players to first harvest Bronze and going through it.

    This is mostly based on the fact that Copper and Tin were both much easier to extract from their ores than Iron..

    What do you guys think?

    • As a survival and realism adept, I obviously wholeheartedly agree.

      Availability of iron ore should preferrably also be adjusted and iron ore should no longer be available above y = 48 afaic.

    • If it were up to me I would revamp the entire smelting process to include cooking the slag out, bellows, forges, and a whole lot of other factors. Along with adding different metals to increase aspects. But it's not up to me, and I can't code so I can't make a mod for it.

    • There's a substantial difference between playing tweaked minecraft and TerraFirmaCraft. The LOTRmod is not TerraFirmaCraft for sure, and the realistic mechanics of that reference would definitely not befit the LOTRmod. All three are different games. The adjustments proposed above are fitting for the LOTRmod imo.

    • I'ts Minecraft, Kick, not RL. You can't get everything perfect. But, yes, this is a good Idea.

    • While I do think bronze should be collected earlier in the game progression than iron, and this solution would work quite well on most servers, it would make it very difficult (though not impossible) to get to Middle-earth from the Overworld. Since copper and tin do not spawn there, iron ore would be unobtainable and thus it would be very hard to scrounge up enough iron for an iron pickaxe to mine the gold for the ring portal, or collect enough gold from loot chests. It would be possible but a serious pain.

    • Tin & Copper Ore should just spawn in the Overworld, simples

    • Both scenarios may be regarded on behalf of the entire LOTRmod user community: 1) getting to ME from the Overworld and 2) spawning in ME. However I would find it acceptable if Mevans would only care for the second and optimise for that.

    • I never have seen the allure of starting in the overworld.

      Some one else: Oh but you can get Diamonds, & go to the Nether & end, brew potions, etc., etc., etc.

      Me: Mithril is better, Utumno is better, Drinks are most certainly better, better, better, better etc.
