Quarry 1.0

This mod adds a quarry for collecting rocks and resources in flat terrain.

The B19 version can be found here.

Thanks to cuproPanda
Please note that the original source and mod was created by cuproPanda.
His work on this mod finished with B18, so I've forked his code to update this mod because I love it so much.

Workshop ID:

Mineable Items:
Chunks (only the types available under where the quarry was built)
Most vanilla and modded mineable items, by default
Any custom defined items in Options->Mod Settings->Quarry

Objects Added:
Quarry: A large pit dug into the ground for digging.
Mini Quarry: A small pit dug into the ground for digging. Has less health than the regular quarry.
Quarry platform: A platform quarry workers will haul resources to. Must be placed near a quarry, preferably near the ladders. Quarries can be linked to only one or two platforms.

Other Features:
Quarries can be built anywhere the terrain permits by enabling God Mode. These quarries will give chunks and blocks based on stone types available in the map.

Quarry is now a work type. Pawns can be set to work in the quarry or set to mine normally. Doing either job will increase mining skill, but allows further control over when miners work in the quarry.

Save Compatability
This mod can be added to existing saves.
Always back up your saves before adding new mods as there is always the possibility for issues.

Mod Compatability
Most items, including modded items, are available to be mined in Options->ModSettings->Quarry
Cupro's Stones: Platforms will have different textures for different stone types
No known issues yet, please report any issues

If it's normal the green marks disappeared after building the quarry? 0.0

Both have their pros and cons; Deep Drill doesn't leave a giant hole on your map when it runs out, but Quarry can be used fairly early-game and doesn't require electricity to operate.
Personally, I don't have a problem using both at the same time.

Is the quarry better than a deep drill? Deep drilling takes longer, about twice the time compared to quarrying...

There should be a big green "Mod Options" or "Mod Settings" button in the Options screen, accessible from the start menu or in-game menu.

How do I get to Prison Labour's mod settings?
"The" SeanMacLeod Sep 29 @ 7:32pm 
Just looked at the relevant mod comments (on @cuproPandas B18 version) and the required terrain is 60% gravel and/or rough stone, translating to 86.4 tiles out of 144 for the full-size quarry.
Sorry for the initial mislead. That stuff really should be in the description here or in-game.....

You need to place the quarry on a majority of stone/gravel terrain. @cuproPanda told us the exact percentage in comments in an earlier version (B19, I think), and I forgot what he said, but pretty sure it was somewhere over 70%.

cant place the quarry on ice sea. but the tooltip when i choosed the landing site said there was granit and others stone there. Is the mod broken or am i missing something?

@Dusty I believe you can add it in mod settings

Any plans on making this compatible with alpha animals? There's a creature in there that mines stuff for you, but it doesn't mine stuff from the quarry. It'd be fantastic if they could work together!

@apadilla124us Press L to switch between block and resource mode. Resource mode gets you chunks.
