Material Detector Mod 1.7.5/1.7.4/1.7.2 for Minecraft

Material Detector Mod show the surrounding material at your level/height map and indicate (far or not far) a given material with a direction to dig for. The detector shows also the other materials that are in the list (see FAQ for more information) and not only the selected material.

Only the blocks that are 2 blocks deep or 2 blocks above are shown.
This way, while searching for iron, you can easily found coal.
The water and lava is also displayed using this mechanism in order to avoid to dig into lava directly

This mod is compatible with the latest release of Mod loader or with Minecraft Forge (the one corresponding to the latest release of minecraft).

Warning: As it can be used to dig very easily some rare materials, it can be consider as a CHEAT.

New Mod Features Version 2.0:

  • New menu to configure the keys directly from the game
  • Configuration files moved to .minecraft/config folder (but they don’t need anymore to be edited directly)
  • Possibility to configure the material color directly from the menu
  • Possibility to set a sub type value to search for a material with an id containing a colon
