How to pump out a lava lake?

  • Haven't played in a while, back in the days I used a miner with a pump attached to it to pump out a lava lake.
    However now the miner just goes straight down and doesn't wait for the pump to remove all the lava in a radius.
    Is this behaviour intended or is it a bug?


    Thanks

  • The pump's range was increased, meaning it would stall mining if it hit a huge lava lake, so a pump touching a miner will only pump out the blocks it needs to to get ores.


    If you rotate a pump (on it's own) to touch the lava in the lake it will pump it out like you want.

    145 Mods isn't too many. 9 types of copper and 8 types of tin aren't too many. 3 types of coffee though?

    I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realise that what you read was not what I meant.
