Update 12.12.2016 Mining at the Farm v1.6 Better Quarry v1.2 All mods require SMAPI SMAPI 1.3 allows to use mods without recompiling them specifically for each OS, so these mods should work on Mac and Linux as well as Windows Mining at the Farm Link to Nexus Imrove the quarry of the Hill-Top farm or make your own quarry on any farm map. With this mod you can: 1. Set your own coordinates for the quarry. 2. Set what types of items you want to spawn. There are ores and geodes that spawned originally, and also gem nodes and mystic stones that didn't. 3. Set spawn chances. The quarry with different coordinates Standard quarry with 1 day worth of stones Standard quarry at the end of the week Ore spawning doesn't threaten your crops and can be done on the normal farm map Exluding areas from spawn in v1.6 About the map creation spawning. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) SMAPI doesn't allow removing or changing existing methods so there is no way to turn off the spawning at the start. About spawn chances. All spawn chances depend on daily luck and most of them on your mining skill. The chances for iridium ore (yes there is a chance for it) and mystic stones are hardcoded as 2% and 0.5% respectively and don't depend on character's mining level. Luck has greater effect on the more rare/valuable items. On the very lucky day (dailyLuck = 0.1 in the game code) it can triple (x3) the chance for iridium ore and quintuple (x5) the chance for mystic stones! More details in the readme file. PS Part of the credit for the idea how to make scaling better goes to Lawtonfogle. Upgraded Hill Top Ores Better Quarry Link to Nexus Almost all the same features from the main "Mining at the Farm" mod for standard Stardew Valley quarry if you want to make more useful or just more interesting. 2 notable differences from "Mining at the Farm": 1) you can set your own chances for Mystic Stone spawn and 2) there is an option to spawn geode minerals alongside ores and gems (mostly to make the quarry look more colorful, since minerals are not really useful). Mining with Explosives Link to Nexus A small and not-really-simple mod that fixes game behavior when using bombs outside of mines would destroy* ores and gems. Now you can use esplosions to clear the quarry at the farm or in the mountains without risking to lose valuable items. *technically speaking, just wouldn't spawn them Highly reccomended using this mod alongside "Mining at the Farm" and/or "Better Quarry" Using bomb at the farm "mini-quarry" Using bomb in the mountain quarry If you want special features of the Forest farm in the form of forageable items and close source of hardwood check "Forage at the Farm" thread.
