About VeinMiner

A mod to help mine veins of ores by mining blocks of the same type in a chain reaction, giving you the blocks at the end.

It is inspired by Connected Destruction by Bspkrs

It improves upon Connected Destruction by:

  • Can be optionally be installed in the client for hotkey support
  • Can have personal settings (that can be remembered using the client part of the mod
  • Actually uses the tool to mine, so drops are correct

    I have a strange case where veinminer is not picking up block from mod SEM ( It is Salt Ore and was autodetected by config and included under pickaxe/blocklist section in config. All other ores from the same mod (Copper, Tin, Zinc) are fine, but Salt is not working. I suspect it is not VeinMiner, but the mod, probably how it handles breaking the block. I have seen cases (hard ores for example) where block id is changing when broken. I suspect something like this may be happening here. I was wondering if you may have any suggestions on how to handle this strange case. Thank you.

    Thank you very much for the recent update! Chopping big trees and giant mushrooms works great without config changes! Best mod ever!

    It turns out, Thaumcraft changed block name from "Thaumcraft:blockMagicalLog" to "thaumcraft:log", plus log orientation metadata from 0/4/8 to 0/1/2 and from 1/5/9 to 3/4/5, so the following line in config works:


    But for giant mushrooms I need to list all 10 variations of orientation metadata as follows:


    etc, etc. I wish it could be coded in the mod itself as it was in 1.7.10.

    As a temporary solution, I can add this line to config:


    It works, but I have to repeat this for every type of wood, every mod. Right now, I cannot figure out what to use for Thaumcraft's greatwood and silverwood, I tried this, but it doesn't work.


    In 1.7.10, all these worked without extra config options. I wonder why.

    Thank you for update 1.8.9_0.31.0! It works great! The only thing is something is different in 1.8.9 (also in 1.8.8 and 1.8) for chopping big oak trees. Only central column is removed with veinminer. All branches are still there. I suspect it may be not veinminer, it may be forge 1.8.9 which is still in beta. Just in case it is veinminer, can you check why branches are not removed? Block IDs seem all be the same (17:0). Thanks.

    Best mod ever, thanks. I have a question. If I place torches on every iron ore block and then mine iron with Veinminer, then only one torch attached to the very first block will be dropped, all other torches disapper. Same with cocoa beans on jungle trees, also flowers, grass and all vegetation on grass block (when grass blocks are whitelisted). Is this a feature? Can this be disabled in config?

    When you do the command /give it lists all items for minecraft AND mods.

    For Example I did /give (playername) then pressed tab intill i saw digimobs: then press tab again

    Then just search in your chat for the right block (Red Digizoid was tile.reddigizoid) and then do /veinminer (toollist or blocklist) (tool) add (put the mod and block together)

    For, Example i did /veinminer blocklist pickaxe digimobs:tile.reddigizoid

    After that do /veinminer saveconfig then quit world and open again
