  1. Introducing the ORASCOPE! Tired of missing out on all the Tin, Zinc, even just plain old Copper Ore? Fed up with wasting Pickaxes on fruitless resource expeditions with nothing to show but the lantern bug bites? This little Serverside mod will be a GREAT help to you! Install Procedure: Simply COPY Zip file directly into /Mods Type this command into the text console (Press 'T' for console): /orascope nearby The resulting report will be messaged back; ####NORTH####### ###W54321012345E N 4|0000020000## N 3|0000222000## N 2|0000010000## N 1|0000010000## N 0|0000000000## S-1|0000010000## S-2|0000111000## S-3|0000000000## S-4|0000000000## ###W54321012345E ######SOUTH##### The ASCII Art map combines the various Ores' into one flat plane (Z-axis is compressed), and the zero entries are non-ores... Its a 9 block radius centred on the player. These coordinates are RELATIVE to ABSOLUTE NORTH. Not the players orientation - more like what you see on the world map. Basically if you are STANDING (above/below) on ore: it will be North: 0, West 0. Release notes [v 0.1.2]: Fixed Axis (swap Y and Z, minecraft style) Better Map Display (centred correctly) Improved legends Untested with Vintage story V1.8.3 ~ since release was simultaneous.... maybe it will work(?)

    Obsidian mining - advices please :)

    So guys, here is a little puzzle for you Maybe you could give some ideas please? I was mining obsidian in a big lava lake and since obsidian rocks are quite useless atm, I wanted to maximize raw obsidian block output. Still haven't invented a good approach. Too much basalt and obsidian rocks. Basics: When lava is touched by water from top, it turns into obsidian. When lava is touched by water from side, it turns into basalt. My current approach: If you cover all lava with water, so an obsidian layer is created on top, and break one obsidian block, a well will be created down to the bottom, with sides made of basalt and all center blocks dropped as raw obsidian. Because as soon as an obsiddian block is created at the bottom of the well, it drops as an item, because there are no ajancent blocks around it. So if you make the next well shifting e.g. two blocks left and one block forward, you get the tightest pattern to create wells. Still basalt:obsidian ratio is 4:1 And all the natural cave forms, e.g. wall's roundness, are worsening the output. Good thing is you mine very little, if you don't want basalt. And the method is quite safe even if lava damage will be added. I tried to make usual checkerboard walls, but water is too tricky, constantly getting to lava from sides and making basalt. Any experience or ideas how to increase raw obsidian output?

    How do you mine

    Well I was wondering "how do people mine in VS?" I must admit I´m kind off stuck with the habitual thinking of strip mining which kind of turns into a waste of time and ressources ^^
  4. Currently bombs are awesome, both in mechanics and special effects graphics. Could we please have more usage for them. E.g. making shafts, vertical or horizontal. Something like shaped charges. E.g. if we place a bomb and a special focusing block near it, it will destroy a long shaft in direction opposite of the block. Or if craft bomb in a special way - then one of it sides will show which direction explosion will go. So making vertical shafts when prospecting might be easier or more fun.
  5. As some of you guys already know, me and my dad have been very passionate Minecraft players since beta. Few things we always enjoyed to do is building our bases, outposts, long railway connections (with lots of sightseeing possibilities) and mining. My dad favors tunnel mining when he plays alone, but when together - we do a lot and lot of caving. I always wished caving would be much more dangerous, caves go deeper and resources less abundant / harder to get. Now the future looks bright! We're taking small steps but we'll never stop going forwards. While one by one challenging features are going to be added, me and my dad created a new world, settled in and started building. These few weeks have been amazing! We got the first impressions of surviving, tested how difficult / easy certain things were. Lots and lots of balancing ahead to be done for sure! The experience of this journey is definitely something I would like to share, who knows, maybe somebody else besides me will find it interesting! After some exploring and gathering basic food for surviving, we build our very first "classical" storage house around 100 blocks from spawn point. Getting our garden expanded. Our food stacks are overflowing... ...and we are drowning in berry bushes! Mining was so painfully slow. Still is! Waiting for bronze age and annoying the hell out of my lovely husband to start working on alloys, smelting in vessels and molds. That's all for today, but I will occasionally keep updating our progress. Not that it matters, but back then, when we used to play Minecraft, I wrote journal of few hilarious adventures of how stupidly we died and then ventured several thousand blocks back to retrieve our belongings and yea... died again. I wrote a lot about building, went into very boring technical detail. Then I wrote about our endless butterfly chasing fun, finding rare species, collections etc. Those wonderful times.... So yea. I have no idea what awaits me many years from now, but if there is one thing I'm sure of - finding this post again and reading it will be the day of epic win! My very best greetings to all of You, Saraty ^_^
