Requires the library mod Collective.

     This mod is part of The Vanilla Experience.
Mineral Chance is a mod created to make mining a little bit more exciting. It adds a chance to find a random mineral after mining a stone-type block. In the overworld these stone blocks are stone, andesite, diorite, granite, tuff and deepslate. In the nether it's netherrack, basalt and blackstone.

By default there is a 1/50 chance to find a mineral. The overworld minerals consist of diamonds, iron nuggets, gold nuggets, lapis lazuli, redstone and emeralds. The nether minerals consist of quartz, golden nuggets and netherite scraps(1.16+). Mining with Silk Touch will disable mineral drops.

All minerals have the same chance of dropping. The message when finding a random mineral can be changed and turned off in the config.

Configurable: ( how do I configure? )
extraMineralChanceOnOverworldStoneBreak (default = 0.02, min 0, max 1.0): The chance a mineral is dropped when an overworld stone block is broken. By default 1/50.
