Quarry Add-On

Thumbnail: Quarry Add-On Go to files

A block that extracts ores like diamonds, iron, coal, gold, red stone, emerald and everything that is found, such as stone, obsidian, dirt, etc. And of course, lava, and water will not be a nuisance to the machine.

# How does it work?

Simply place the quarry block on the ground, tap on it, and it will show you the size of the area that needs to be cleared of blocks for the quarry to build.

For the quarry to be built, you must hit one of the four screens that will appear around that area until it turns green. If the screen remains red, it means that there are blocks in the construction area.

Once the quarry is built, you can touch one of the four screens around the quarry to open the settings.

You will find four different quarry blocks: the small packed quarry, the medium packed quarry, the large packed quarry, and the packed explosive quarry, each with different excavation sizes.

  • Small Quarry: 7x7
  • Medium Quarry: 11x11
  • Large Quarry: 15x15

# Quarry settings options:

Quarry Settings

  • Destroy: Activation will destroy the quarry and return the packed quarry to you. (The drill must be retracted)
  • Retract drill: This option will retract the drill once you have finished using the quarry.
  • Ignore alerts: If this option is enabled, the quarry will not stop if it finds indestructible blocks in the digging zone, unless the blocks are directly below the drill:

Ignore Alerts: OFF and ON

  • Max power: This option allows you to dig twice as fast in exchange for more fuel. (+3 de redstone per layer)
  • Silk touch: This allows you to obtain blocks such as glass, ores, chests, and many more in their original state. (+2 redstone per layer)
  • Quarry On/Off: It will activate and deactivate the quarry if it has fuel and there are no alerts.
  • Redstone/Fuel: In this slider, you can add and remove redstone with a maximum storage of 999 redstone. (Above this option, you can see the redstone available in your inventory)

To apply all these settings, you must press the save settings button.
