Modding Help How do you increase the range of a mining tool?

    Is it possible to change how far away a pickaxe can mine in the .miningtool file? Is there an exposed LUA script that dictates how mining tools behave? Just curious, the only other person asking this never received a response.

    Well now I want to take a look at it and see myself!

    Bump, I think it's fair after just short of a week, I really am curious and knowing would help immensely in a mod I'm making.

    It seems there is no lua for mining tools, at least directly... but it seems that it's completely fixed range... perhaps.
    Code:
    {
      "itemName" : "copperpickaxe",
      "price" : 50,
      "category" : "Tool",
      "inventoryIcon" : "copperpickaxeicon.png",
      "maxStack" : 1,
      "rarity" : "Common",
      "tooltipKind" : "tool",
      "description" : "This tool won't last long, but I'll be able to dig pretty fast with it.",
      "shortdescription" : "Copper Pickaxe",
      "largeImage" : "copperpickaxebig.png",
      "image" : "copperpickaxe.png",
      "handPosition" : [-3, -4],
      "fireTime" : 0.3,
      "swingStart" : -40,
      "swingFinish" : 60,
      "blockRadius" : 3,
      "altBlockRadius" : 1,
      "twoHanded" : true,
      "strikeSounds" : [ "/sfx/tools/pickaxe_hit.ogg" ],
      "breakSound" : "/sfx/tools/pickaxe_break.ogg",
      "durability" : 200,
      "durabilityPerUse" : 1,
      "tileDamage" : 1.5,
      "harvestLevel" : 99,
      "tileDamageBlunted" : 0.6
    }
    Code:
    {
      "itemName" : "superfishaxe",
      "price" : 0,
      "inventoryIcon" : "fishicon.png",
      "maxStack" : 1,
      "rarity" : "Legendary",
      "description" : "One step below a sharknado.",
      "shortdescription" : "Fishaxe",
      "tooltipKind" : "tool",
      "largeImage" : "diamondpickaxebig.png",
    
      "image" : "fish.png",
      "handPosition" : [-4, -4],
      "fireTime" : 0.01,
      "swingStart" : -40,
      "swingFinish" : 60,
      "blockRadius" : 7,
      "altBlockRadius" : 1,
      "tileDamageType" : "blockish",
      "tileDamage" : 10.0,
      "tileDamageBlunted" : 1.0,
      "harvestLevel" : 0,
      "twoHanded" : true,
      "strikeSounds" : [ "/sfx/tools/pickaxe_hit.ogg" ],
      "durability" : 10000000000000
    }
    
    Seems something about the fishaxe makes its range super ridiculous.

    I think you're asking how far away you can mine blocks? Like if you wanna be able to stand on 1 side of a room and mine a table 50 away.

    I'm pretty sure this makes it so you can mine stuff 70 blocks away from you :D
