I can't help but notice that there seems to be some inconsistencies with what a 'Matter' Pickaxe in ProjectE can and cannot 'right-click-mine' between various Minecraft modpacks.

So that made me wonder; Is there something in the configuration files that would allow me to add blocks that the pickaxes can 'right-click-mine'? Like, say, allow me to mine a cluster of glowstone with a right click? Or mine ores from the NetherOres mod? I can't seem to find the setting anywhere, but something must be causing the inconsistencies.

  • I'm not sure, but I think it has to do with ore dictionary. – Silentvenom7 Oct 6 '15 at 4:37

The following snippet was taken from the Project E source code (utils/ItemHelper):

public static boolean isOre(Block block, int meta)
    if (block == Blocks.lit_redstone_ore)
        return true;
    String oreDictName = getOreDictionaryName(new ItemStack(block, 1, meta));
    return oreDictName.startsWith("ore") || oreDictName.startsWith("denseore");

This seems to indicate that Project E uses the Forge Ore Dictionary to determine if something is an ore.

Other than asking the developers of a mod to add their ores to the dictionary, there isn't much you can do. If you want to add vanilla blocks to this dictionary, you will have to create a Forge mod yourself.
