Forge Ore Dictionary
(Redirected from OreDict)

The Forge Ore Dictionary is a system added by Minecraft Forge. This system allows items added by different mods to be used interchangeably.
For example, this could allow a Copper Ingot added by Thermal Foundation to be used in a Mekanism recipe that requires Copper.
Not only ores can be used in the dictionary; it can be used for whatever a mod author wishes to program it for. The Ore Dictionary name of an item can be seen with Not Enough Items or a Dictionary from Mekanism.
In order to avoid having stacks of similar but different resources lying around, the different items can be unified by using a Unifier or a Forge Lexicon.
A list of Ore Dictionary entries can be found here.
As of Minecraft 1.13 Ore Dictionary was removed from forge, being replaced by Tags system from Vanilla.
