Finding Ore in General

How do you guys go about finding ore?

I usually go about wandering with a magnifying glass and a book to write down coordinates, but I was wondering if anyone has some advanced techniques or are we all looking at rocks on the ground?

I recently watched a video by someone on GT6 ore generation, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcfcHN5r0ZY. It’s 6 months old and about the distribution of ore (ie where it spawns) and doesn’t contain any specific techniques for finding ore as far as I know.

You could also go look on a wiki for GT6 (for example, https://ftb.fandom.com/wiki/GregTech_6/Stones_and_Minerals) about where ores spawn in relation to Y levels, stone types, installed mods and stuff like that.

I don’t really know how to find ores that well either, so I’d be interested what others say on this topic.

It’s simple: I carefully roam around, pick up all stones and add a marker in Xaero’s Minimap if it’s an ore-bearing rock. I don’t add multiple markers, if two rocks are close as 50 meters.

and a book to write down coordinates

I did it in my previous game where I played without the minimap, plus I placed signs in place of rocks. That was really tedious.

You might want to try this one then.

Definitely beats using the map to keep track of ores.

isn’t there this “I will find you” Mod for keeping track of GT6 Ores here on the Forums?

There we go, these might help. ^^
