I really do love this mod, but the only problem I really have with it is that it doesn't work with certain other types of mods with custom ore, but none the less this mod is great!

Nice mod BRO, help's me alot, especially when I'm finding diamonds in survival, very very nice mod
1
great add on but and idk if just my end but the ui that pops up is very large. Also any plans on making it require fuel?
1
Absolutely amazing addon. Great for addon heavy servers or realms. You should add an ability to give it a water bucket so it does not fall into lava, and will just go over it, turning it into obsidian. But fantastic addon

how can i increase the speed or i cant

Use Gold, Diamond or Netherite blocks to interact with the machine and upgrade its speed.

5 star for the addon version 1.3.1. It works flawlessly on 1.18.2. Mining diamond on y -54 never been this easier. I can also build stone factory by connecting pump, chest to furnace. no experimental setting needed.

Because of auto pump features, no block drops littered around, which mean lag free. Just beware of new cave. Those biomes are miner worst nightmare. Machine might fall off cliff or lava to the bedrock level and stopped working.

For whatever reason, when I turn it on, it doesn’t move and when i shift interact it doesn’t rotate. Is anybody else having these problems?
1
Really good mod, works, and vary easy to use, if u want a MPC miner, i recommend this mod, goes through lava, unless the group ant flat, and also goes through water

How do I update to the new version? I have the old one, but when I download only the old version appears in the game, I deleted the old version but when I install only the old one appears
1
a update for new world gen bedrock level is needed

yikes, I didn't even think of that. I'll upload an alternative version
