    Mining Tools +
    (v. upbeat Giraffe)
    This mod is outdated and won't be updated any more due to several reasons (unless by popular demand). Thank you all for feedback!
    Last Message: v0.3 Upbeat Giraffe Update! Stuff changed so read through!

    This is a balanced version of my height fitted mining tools mod. The difference is that in this mod here Pickaxes and Drills get new versions that can mine 4 blocks at once, instead of the usual 3 (or 2).
    + Tools cost 1 bar more for pickaxes and double the amount more for drills, as they are respectively stronger.

    How it works:
    The mod only adds an additional version of all pickaxes (from copper and up) and all drills. The upgraded versions usually cost 1 resource (ore bars or diamonds) more for Pickaxes and double resources more for Drills. This is because pickaxes cost usually 2 resources and offer a 3 block-radius, and drills cost 6 resources and offer a 2 block-radius.

    In short, the cost for the + tools is as following:
    - copper pickaxe +
    3 copper bars
    - silver pickaxe +
    3 silver bars
    - gold pickaxe +
    3 gold bars
    - platinum pickaxe +
    3 platinum bars
    - diamond pickaxe +
    3 diamonds
    - copper drill +
    12 copper bars
    - silver drill +
    12 silver bars
    - gold drill +
    12 gold bars
    - platinum drill +
    12 platinum bars
    - diamond drill +
    12 diamonds

    The balancing should be a lot better now, when building a + tool instead of a normal mining tool you effectively mine faster what you are paying additionally. 4-block drills are very fun :love:

    You can build them as usual tools on either the anvil or the advanced working table!

    Simply extract the file into your Starbound/giraffe_storage/mods/ folder, or put the MiningTools+.modpak file into your mods folder.
