- Native Minecraft Version:
- Tested Minecraft Versions:
Note: This will work on both 1.13 and 1.14 servers. (It works on 1.15 as well according to a comment on my youtube video, however I have not personally tested it on 1.15)
quarrycraft.use: (Default: true) Allows players to use quarries
quarrycraft.useall: (Default: false) Allows players to use everyone's quarries
quarrycraft.buildquarries: (Default: true) Allows players to create quarries
Most recent changes:
Made more compatible with WorldGuard and GriefPrevention. (You do not need WorldGuard or GriefPrevention to use this plugin)
In the config you will find these new options related to WorldGuard:
do-worldguard-protection ( This can be true or false. Will determine whether or not you want quarries to consider protection from worldguard. Default: true)
max-worldguard-y-check (Max height quarries will look at for WorldGuard protection. Default: 100)
min-worldguard-y-check (Min height quarries will look at for WorldGuard protection. Default: 20).
Run the server atleast once with the plugin installed, or type /quarrycraft reload to reload the config and messages files. This will generate the QuarryCraft/config and QuarryCraft/messages files. You can customise the plugin's messages by editing the QuarryCraft/messages.conf file.
The QuarryCraft/config.conf file can be edited to change stuff like quarry size, enable/disable welcome messages, quarries per person limits etc. If you update to a new version, I suggest deleting the old config file before running to generate the newer config options if there are any.
Making the quarry
Firstly, place down a chest one block above the level at which you want to start mining.
Then place a diamond block against each side face of the chest to get a cross.
Next, fill the 4 open corners with redstone blocks.
Next, you may place iron bars heading staight out in the north,south, west and/or east direction. Starting from the side of each diamond block.
The 2 longest perpendicular bars will be used to determine the area which your quarry will mine.
Now shift-left click the chest in the centre.
It will complain that there is no fuel. You can use charcoal, coal, or redstone as fuel. Charcoal is the least efficient, while the next are twice as efficient as the previous. coal blocks and redstone blocks may also be used. This is equivalent to 9 coal or 9 redstone dust. Place them in this centre chest
Here is a summary of the energy provided by each material:
Charcoal - 25 Energy
Coal - 50 Energy
Redstone - 100 Energy
Coal Block - 450 Energy
Redstone Block - 900 Energy
The quarry will consume energy equivalent to the hardness value of each block it mines.
Next, you will need storage for the mined items.
Simply place chests or double chests anywhere along the iron bars (They must be touching the sides of the iron bars).
The quarry will then begin to mine from 1 y-level below its glass platform.
Shift-left-click your centre chest to toggle between classic and ender mining. Ender mining will cost 50 times as much as classic mining, however it will not mine stone, dirt, or grass. Ender mining can also place dirt blocks in place of the blocks it mines to avoid holes in the ground. See the nether star modifier below.
Place a chest on any of the redstone corners.
Then you can place either emerald blocks, diamond blocks, or a nether star in that chest above the redstone.
Summary of modifiers:
Emerald Blocks- Reduce mining delay by 1 tick for every 4 emerald blocks. Max is 76 emerald blocks.
Diamond Blocks - Increases the number of blocks mined at a time by 1 for every diamond block. Max is 36 diamond blocks.
Gold Blocks - Increases the efficiency of the quarry. Max is about 99% efficiency at 100 gold blocks.
Nether Star - Place a single nether star in a chest above the redstone to enable dirt block replacements for mined blocks in the ender mining mode.
Place a shulker shell on any of the redstone corners. Then place blocks you want to void into the shulker shell. The quarry will still mine all the blocks it usually does and use the same energy, but it will save you space so your chests won't be full of blocks you don't want.
Viewing the current y-level the quarry is mining on
Sneak right click the centre chest to find out how far down the quarry is mining at the moment.
Resetting the current y-level to the top
If, for whatever reason, you want the quarry to restart mining at the top. Sneak left click one of the 4 diamond blocks around the centre chest. It will start mining at the top(given that there are now blocks at the top that you want mined)
Pausing the quarry
If you need to pause your quarry, simply left click one of its 4 diamond block with an empty hand.
Your entire quarry's area is protected from intereraction/block breaking from other players.
