Mine a single ore to break the full vein of the same ore! Veinminer is a common feature in various modpacks or survival pvp game modes like UHC to speed up breaking whole veins. Now you can use this feature as a datapack too!

From 2.0.0 -> Add/remove blocks & more settings
From 1.2.1 -> Supports Silk Touch
From 1.2.0 -> Supports Fortune
From 1.1.0 -> Supports (Deepslate) Copper Ore

Customization & Settings

Veinminer comes in two different versions

The DataPack (V1) version is a simple version that is usable on every server and world.

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

The Fabric & Paper (V2) version is a more advanced version that is only usable with Fabric/Quilt or Paper/PurPur servers.

Command Permission Short Description
/veinminer blocks veinminer.blocks Edit blocks that are veinmineable
/veinminer toggle veinminer.toggle Completely toggle Veinminer
/veinminer settings veinminer.settings Change settings like cooldown, max chain and more

OP players will have all permissions. To manually grant permissions see Luckperms.
For Folia support you need to set delay to 0!

Some Advice

  • To veinmine, your pickaxe must be able to mine the ore in normal conditions (unless disabled in V2)
  • While Veinminer is running very lightweight, mining unnatural big veins can lag the client and the server through the amount of items
