tool progress is a mod that modifies the functioning of the tools of the game, but also the blocks that we mine when mining. The mod makes each mineral resource need a certain level of mining, so we need a certain tool to mine that mineral block.
So, when installing this mod, we will have to use tools with a mining level higher than the mining level required to extract a mineral resource. In addition, the mod will also allow us to create a super tool called “Paxel”, which is the combination of a pickaxe, a shovel and an ax.
To see the mining level of a specific tool and the mining level we need to mine a specific mineral resource, it is recommended to also install the Hwyla mod, although it is not mandatory.
