Mod Ashsaid: Providentialsaid: Could you elaborate on this change as in mechanics, etc if that's ok? Yeah. Previously, the vein would stay there for a period of time, no matter how many people got ore from it, and then it would despawn when the time ran out. Which looked a bit odd, and "people" didn't like it doing that, even if it was a statistical increase in ore output compared to the original behaviour.
Now, when the time runs out, the vein doesn't despawn immediately. Instead it despawns next time someone gets ore from it, so you don't see the veins despawning without anyone getting ore.
Now that's a whole lot of improvement to motherlode mine, thanks for the clarification, Ash. C(h)vt(k)y
