The Mines, a place for your pawns to excavate the treasures of the earth.
This is a remake of the mod from AngleWyrm to version 1.0.

Adds a new building to the game - a mine in which you can mine all the main ore, except for the components found in the game world without mods.
This mine is essentially a resource generator, which greatly simplifies the game, it can disrupt the game balance and be too OP.

Before you can build mines, you need to reaserch the mining craft.

How to add other materials to extract

Or is mining speed converted into yield?

What type of job is mining in the mine? My miner mines stuff around the same time as someone with no skill. Yield is lower, but speed is similar.

@Wexman Thanks for the reply

For now, I'm in no hurry to update the "hardcore" version, due to lack of time and low popularity of the mod. If there is more time, I will add more development to the mod, and compatibility with other mods.

I don't play with Medieval Overhaul myself, so I haven't tested them for compatibility. But as far as I know, Medieval Overhaul changes the process of obtaining steel, hence the compatibility problems.

Now I understand what you meant.) If you say so, then it’s probably true. But this is already a feature of the game. Since the mine essentially acts as a resource generator. To answer your question, I don't think there's anything I can do about it.

Do you have plans of adding the "Hardcore" version of this?

Alternatively, could you make the research slightly different. You start off with the "Hardcore" mine, then you can research a better one which costs lots more research / end-game material. Love the mod btw.

I think your mine has issues meshing with Medieval Overhaul. It doesn't add the iron ore in at all, it does see the gold ore and plasteel ore. It doesn't see the silver ore, but it does let you just straight up mine the silver ingots.

@WexMan Thanks for the reply. I was noticing some wealth bloat in my colonies and tracked it down to this mod. (Unless my testing was wrong but this was the errant mod I found.) I was getting wealth value on the graph from items and no clue what it was from. After testing I found that slate/limestone/granite etc. chunks were adding it to my item value. I fired up a vanilla colony and they didn't. So I wonder if because you generate chunks now it tracks them as colony owned items. Or something. I'm not entirely sure. It's not a deal breaker but a nuisance I wanted to get to the bottom of.

I hope I can add resources from other mods sometime in the future...
