So yes, Survival Craft has less ores, but there is SO much more to do with them!
~Minecraft has armor ability with Diamond, Gold, Iron, and Leather, [and this is an upcoming feature for 1.26 in Survival Craft].
~In Survival Craft, however, you have the ability to make gunpowder, and gunpowder kegs with the germanium, sulfur, and and coal chunks you obtain after mining.
~Not only that, but by smelting malachite ore in a furnace, you obtain copper ingots used to make buckets, batteries, electric wire, etc. [Minecraft's electrics are VERY limited. ]
~Survival Craft ores are used in mixing paint, making electronics [on another note, there are a lot more electronics in Survival Craft as well, but we will save that for another time :) ], etc.
If you would like to view the complete list of electronics that are made with these ores, just visit the Survival Craft Wiki HERE. To view the paint recipes that require ores, click HERE.
