[Minecraft] Mining straight down with 100% coverage

New postby 3ICE on Sat Jun 16, 2012 3:42 pm

Dig straight down at the marked locations.

Breaking 1 block per layer reveals 4 blocks around it. 1 block for 4: 400% performance. (This method is the best.)
Breaking 2 blocks per layer reveals 6 blocks around. 2 blocks for 6: 300% performance. (This is a 2x1 branchmine shaft for comparison with the above method.)

But this is only useful if you are looking for caves and have a good way of getting back up (teleportation).

This is the pattern (gray lines indicate block borders/edges):

And to put it in scale: (Each gray square is a 16×16 chunk.)
