Before Nether Gold Ore was chosen, Mojang said we choose how gold is in the Nether, but before we could choose we got "Yellow Nether Quartz". So instead of a basic idea how about something more creative, interesting, and educational? Introducing: Gold Fungus
Correct tool: Iron Pickaxe
Drops: 3-7 Gold Nuggets & 3-6 XP
Drops with Fortune III: 4-9 Gold Nuggets & 3-7 XP
Spawn Chance in Warped/Crimson Forests: 60%
Spawn Chance in Soul Sand Valley: 30%
Very very slowly it grows, also filling up with nuggets the longer its there.
- Forgot to bring gold for Piglins & Netherite? Say no more! Gold Fungus awaits you.
- It's educational if you wanna learn what Fungi in Minecraft are like in real life!
- Makes the Nether slightly more livable for folks who like bling in a place filled with lava.
Based off a real fungus called Fusarium Oxysporum which is known for its amazing ability to collect gold particles, Gold Fungus does just that. It spawns in all biomes of the Nether on cliffs and places that are tricky to get to. If Piglins are in a 1-12 block radius of it and can reach it, they will guard and hang out by the Gold Fungus, thinking about how to extract that sweet loot. However, if they get hungry and go to get food then you've got a couple of seconds to mine it!
And if you don't feel like taking the chance of falling in lava while mining it, you can rarely find it in the ground, but where it spawns makes the ground and plants dead, just like the fusarium oxysporum in real world soil.
