EmbellishCraft adds a bevy of new blocks and materials to Minecraft. With the addition of new stones, this mod overhauls brick based blocks. There seems to be an endless variety to fit anyone’s style.
A neat feature is the ability to craft things with steel. But you need to first make steel ingots. They can either be crafted with steel nuggets, or much easier with the use of the blast furnace. Just smelt iron ingots and you’ll get steel ingots.
And once you have steel ingots you can combine them with the hammer to make steel plates. Then you’ll be able to craft all the metal based blocks for a real industry themed aesthetic. You can even make rusty blocks!
