    • What you are calling strip mining is shaft mining. What you are doing on the surface with the shovel is actually strip mining. I know it's being picky, but when coal companies try to push for strip mining and people think of shaft mining it's easier for them to convince people. Strip mining is an extremely destructive form of mining that often destroys whole mountains. (Lived near strip mining as a kid... it's an ugly thing.) (Personal pet peeve... I bug everyone in the minecraft world who uses the terms wrong.)

  • I don’t mean to be a downer or anything but this update sounds like it’ll make mining more grind-y and a lot less fun, it just means you have to mine more at different levels and at different biomes but it doesn’t seem to have many benefits. All it seems to do is be more time consuming, nobody actually enjoys strip mining it’s just a thing people have to do.

  • tip : you should actually mine two blocks before bedrock for diamonds/deepslate for all ores because if you mine like this you will be able to find more 8 ores diamond packs generating, because it could be below your feet too, but if you mine 1 block before bedrock/deepslate only 1 ore can spawn beneath you, the other won't spawn because of bedrock/deepslate. hope I was clear

  • This change is so good. Finally mining gets more compictaed, forcing the player to plan mining methods and build multi-leveled mines. This also encourages redstone-machinery to deal with ore hoisting and delivery to smelters. In real life mines have different levels, often called "drifts", where to goal is to follow an ore vein. Usually these drifts join up at a hoist station; like a vinze or shaft. It's really cool that something like this will be possible in MC now.
