mining-difficulty

picture

The rich nutrience of the land have created rich and dense veins to mine. Weak tools are now less effective against stone and ores. When mining an ore with punching, wood, and stone pickaxes the deposits will take multiple breakthroughs to remove. Players will need to resort to caving or exposed resources for supplies early on. When stone is mined it will break down into cobblestone and then mined a second time to destroy it.
