Has anyone actually been able to mine?

Recommended Posts

Like, a legit, normal minecraft mining shaft type of mining.

I've started 7 or 8 mining shafts, and every one of them has hit a water-filled cravat before level 30. They've all been far far away from each other.

Just wanting to see if it was just horrid luck with my seed, or if anyone else had had this issue yet.

Dig sideways to the edge of the ravine then dig down 1 or more blocks inside the wall of the ravine. Wall up any holes you find into the ravine.

For the few water blocks in your way fill with dirt, sand (or gravel) then dig the fill out.

If you dig in a biome with snow most of the water will be ice.

It seems this pack is set up to encourage dungeon raiding over mining, but for tinkers construct you still need to mine. I guess if you find enough of those ore bushes from the ravines you could set up a farm and get the metals that way. They don't seem to grow larger like the edible berry bushes though.

I've mainly just found ore bushes. If you collect enough of each, you get a decent farm of metals in no time. It is better than trying to have to mine for decades to find enough metals.
