Lightning Ore is a modification to Minecraft that adds new Ores, Gems and Weapons to the game. As of Version 2.6, Lightning Ore no longer requires ModLoader, and instead now directly hooks into Minecraft Forge; this also means that is now goes into the /mods folder, previously being installed into MINECRAFT.JAR directly.

Lightning Ore does not use a Creative Tab, instead using the Building Blocks, Tools, Combat, Materials, and Misc Creative Tabs.
