The Vein Miner 1.16.5 is an exciting mod for Minecraft that has been created by the gamers themselves. This mod actually allows you to mine veins of metals and combine them into very powerful items. But how does it work? How does this mod actually work?
The mining in this game is done through a new vein system that has been designed by the creators of the game. Basically, a vein is a channel that can be located anywhere on the map. As you are going deeper into the map, you will find veins of metal chunks. When you mine these chunks, they will be transformed into precious ores and later on can be sold for money. The vein that you are going to mine is indicated on the minimap with a gold star and with a number indicating the depth of the vein.
There are basically two ways to mine in this game. You can either go underground or you can mine on the surface of the map. You can mine from areas that are usually not accessible like above ground mountains or swamps where zombies may attack. However, the mining style that you use will determine the price of the metal chunks that you get.
How do you get the vein? You need to find the vein that is indicated on the minimap with a gold star and has a number indicating its depth. You need to mine all the way to the bottom of the indicated vein or the ore will not be transformed into valuable ores. Keep in mind though that you get more expensive ones as you mine further into the game.
The downside of the Vein Miner is that there are some mobs that are extremely hostile when you mine in their own chunks. This is especially the case with the Night Lanterns which can attack you while you are mining. To solve this, you can switch to the “off” mode before you start mining. Also, if you see a bunch of dark chunks on the horizon, don’t mine them just yet. Wait for the chunks to come out naturally instead of blasting them.
This is actually a pretty fun mod, although it does have its drawbacks. It doesn’t make you rich unlike the vanilla MineCraft mod, but it still makes you a lot of money. There are over 100 different ores in this version and the ones that you mine are very helpful in the game. Try it out and see how much fun it could be for you.
