Customization & Settings

All commands are restricted to OP users. React/click on the settings messages to change them.

Command Description
/function veinminer:settings/pickaxe Limit or grant the effect for certain pickaxes
/function veinminer:settings/general Change some general settings to balance the effect

The Veinminer effect can be limited to certain pickaxes to balance the usage (default active for every pickaxe). Additionally, a hunger effect can be applied to veinminers to compensate the hunger debuff on mining multiple blocks. You can define an extra cooldown to limit the usage even more!

Some Advice

  • To veinmine, your pickaxe must be able to mine the ore in normal conditions
  • While the datapack is running very lightweight, mining unnatural big veins can lag the client and the server through the amount of items
