[Suggestion] OZ Scanner

  • We have those old, portable scanners to use, but they never help much do they? This new item will fix that!
    The way it is crafted is like this

    Where B=Charged battery
    V= OV Scanner
    C= Copper cable
    A= Advanced machine
    And I= Refined iron

    This machine, when recieving atleast 52 EU's of power will use up 21 EU's per 3 seconds to show you where one, random ore is nearby! The scanning radius of the OZ scanner is exactly a 15x15x15 cube!
    After the machine detects you have discovered the ore, it will make a *BLOOP* noise and power off. To turn it back on, just give it 104 EU's of power, but if the machine already has power it will instead have a brief intermission (About 10 seconds) And point out a different ore!
    Of course, you need a device to see the ores, which is why there will be the XZ-2000 Glasses!


    Where C= Copper Cable
    G= Glass
    And I= Refined iron

    When you put these on your head, you have the ability to see the ores being detected by your OZ Scanner!
    These glasses require charge from a batpack, rechargable battery, or a single-use battery. Or you could just charge it in any power containing machine!

    Of course, this machine will need some disadvantages.
    Possibly, very rarely, when the machine powers down, it will overheat and take 5 minutes to recover itself, or 2.5 if a water SOURCE block is touching it!
    A disadvantage for the glasses is to have them short-circuit, and instantly run out of charge.

    This is my first suggestion, so thanks for reading!
    If Alblaka reads this, amazing mod, and please consider the addition of it!

    If you want to detect ores just use Xray ;)
    Btw, everytime you want to detect ores in a area, you would have to move the machine. Its not good.

    If alblaka add new glasses i would like to have Night vision glasses . [Im tired of making torches, really.]

  • It would make a better handheld device, and really a far better version of the two scanners we currently have.

    As for X-Ray, This is different, in that it is actually using resources, rather than you getting it for free, and hence feels a lot less like cheating.

  • However at the level you're at when you can make an OZ scanner it's far easier to just automated mine your way to profit. This just sounds like more annoying tedium.
