APIs for Miner

  • Suggestion: add an API for Miner.
    What it should have:
    1. Support for customizable drills. Speed, etc.
    Interface: IMinerDrill, methods:



    2. Support for customizable scanners.
    Interface: IMinerScanner

    Code
    1. /**
    2. * Returns range in which this scanner will work
    3. */
    4. int getRange();


    Both interfaces are implemented on Items.

  • Is this for you to adjust the IC2's mining drill or create your own? Unless a few other people could use something like this, it seems a bit overkill verses extending ToolMiningDrill (or whatever that class is called) and overriding needed things

    So ya. Thats 'bout it.

    Creating my own custom drill.

  • I would like to see some more uses for the miner. People these days rely to much on the quarry or turtles or MFR's mining laser. I honestly don't think i've seen people make a real use out of the miner. Imagine being able to write a mod that expands it. Drills with durability, scanning modules that apply speed / range buffs. Even going as far as custom filter modules so the miner only targets specific ores. mmm yes that would be lovely.
