Tired of mining every single ore that you see? Scared of taking your time in mining an ore vein with your back against the darkness of the cave? Or are you just that lazy to do any tedious work like mining? If any (or all) of your answers are yes, then this mod is the right one for you.
Created by username portablejim, Vein Miner is a mod that helps players mine veins of ores by creating a chain reaction.
Inspired by the Connected Destruction Mod by Bspkrs. In this mod, ores of the same type that is near the ore you mine will be mined as well in a chain.
Although it is based on the mod connected destruction, there are many aspects where this mod has its advantages. For example, this mod can be optionally installed in the client for hotkey support. It also supports personal settings per client basis. It also requires the right tool to mine (for correct drops) and features an in-game UI for changing the settings.
To use Vein Miner mod, you need to have vein miner installed on the server (or the client for single player games). For added options and support, you can also install the mod to the client along side the serer.
By editing VeinMiner.cfg, you adjust many aspects of the mod including IDs, tools allowed, and so much more.
Vein Miner Mod is not all about vein ores and mining. The same concept can be used when chopping trees. As such, an option in the config to allow quick tree cutting is available for those interested.
If you are having trouble, you can type /veinminer in the in-game console for help and details.
