What's funny is that the texture can change from camo to regular and then to core texture when you mine all the blocks around the Ore.
Happened a lot with bauxite for instance...
Yeah, I can agree that it's extremly annoying for these one since it completly nerf manual mining
I've mined more Iridium Ore and Ruby Ore since I've started to used the JackHammer.
Granted it takes some EU to power (especially the diamond one) but I don't lose anything rare now.
What has been nerfed is branch mining, not all manual mining.
I don't mind the 4 tin cells. It forces me to use them wisely...or mine more.
Tried the steel jackhammer, and then the diamond one. It's awesome.
I think I'm going to throw my mining turtles in lava and go back to manual mining now...
I don't mind core veins (even though I agree that they need to be a little less flashy) but camo ores should not be invisible ores.
I lost several ruby ores by mining around a lava lake. If I have had a slight clue to look at when I mine (and not the particle one which is quite tedious...), I would not have minded this change.
That being said,I did not know about the jackhammer until recently. I'll definitely give it a try.
