"Hey, it looks like there's a ton of ore in this deposit, why can I only get three pieces?"

Does this sound familiar to you? Does the low reward, high risk system of mining bother you? Tired of getting only little ore for those tedious seconds spent hitting the same rock over and over again? Those long hours searching for even the tiniest bit of ore got you down?

Well then this might just be the mod for you!

Ore deposits carry more than 3 ore now. A LOT more! How does 50 ore per deposit sound? Oh, but it's not quite a cheat, because A.) you gotta wait there a long time to get it all, and B.) That's a lot of weight you just picked up, so it's going to take a few trips if you don't prepare.

As for further justification, can you really look at that big chunk of material, just sitting there all shiny in the ground, and say you would only get 3 chunks? Come on, that's not realistic. Why would those people in the mines be mining for a day job if there wasn't a ton of ore in them?

NOTE:Superspeed version is finished. It's titled MMMX and you can find it at this location:
NOTE: A scaled down version is being worked on as well, planned title is "Minimal Motherlode Mining", with an ore limit of around 15 per deposit.
NOTE 2: This mod only applies to the vanilla Skyrim deposits, I may work on something for the DLC deposits given a good reception to this.

This mod doesn't seem to affect geode ores, is there a way to add them to it?

The point of the mod is to give you a reward if you have the patience to mine for the time it take to get them all. If you would get them all really quick it would really defeat the purpose. You could just open console and give you some instead.

When i mine i just go and do something off the game cause it takes forever to get all the ore, could you make it so its 6 strikes per ore instead of 9. Also could you fix the rare glitch were with the vanilla game sometimes veins dont respawn ever.

I find the idea of ore veins with 15 ore fairer than 50. I mean 50 sounds great but also stupidly too much. I completely agree with what is said in the description but 50 is kinda too much. 15 sounds a lot more appropiate and I'm happy with that

Works fine for me, except for the DLC deposits which im a tad annoyed at

If you equip your pick and swing it at the deposit, it will not deplete like if you do the mining animation, or whatever you can call it. This takes much longer, due to not all hits producing ore, but that's probably just my game.
