multiple mine supports

Postby sona » Tue Jun 09, 2015 1:26 am

Just curious how the code actually checks against this. If I have 2 mine supports of the same quality, will they both expire at roughly the same time if installed at the same time? Or will the first one degrade until it poofs, and then the second one start degrading.

Also, do supports count towards the limit of things that can be in the room (ie: towards the exposed vein count limit)

It seems to count the first support first, then the second. That way, if you have a damaged support, you can go ahead and put in the second support and the second one will disappear eventually.

As for your second question...why do you need to have that many exposed veins anyways?

You overhear the following rumor:
"There's an old man that can sometimes be seen walking around with a trunk, rumor has it he takes it to the stables and gets naked in front of the horses before changing clothes from the trunk."
You think to yourself, "Who could that old man be?"

It's just a process, some people might might one vein, or a few veins, but i'll just expose as many as I can and then mine them down. No real 'right' or 'wrong' way to go about mining preferences. There's no real reason to it. I'm just curious if I set up a good number of supports in a shaft (5 or so?), if it will significantly affect the number of veins that can be exposed at a time.
