      Server Move   09/13/18

      I (Dries007) have recently taken over as main developer and server admin. This involved moving servers to reduce cost. It's likely there will be some more downtime in the future but most  things should be sorted by now. This forum is in dire need of replacement as the software is quite old and can't be easily updated. If you wish to discuss or stay updated, join our discord: https://invite.gg/terrafirmacraft. The forum will remain available to read, but will be locked in the future, when a new system is setup. The forum and wiki are now ad free. If you'd like to contribute to keeping it that way, you can do so via paypal or patreon.

Help, can't find any veins/ores

4 posts in this topic

First, Good morning.

I was playing with a friend and as soon as we made our first pickaxe and prospector's pick, I intended to go mining.

The problem is, I can't find ore. anywhere. I tried smashing rocks on the surface, I got like 4 stacks and nothing, tried mining when prospector's pick found something, and I've found nothing. It's really getting annoying and redudant, We can't do anything without ores...

Ore blocks look different from normal rock.  There's no ore 'hidden' inside a normal looking stone block.   Prospectors pick only tells you when ore is near.  You still have to search around to find it.   If the block you propicked does not show ore veins, you will get no ore from it.  You might want to find a good lets-play series and watch it, to get an idea of what to expect.

No, I tried to say that I got the stones at the surface (the small rocks) and there wasn't any ore with then, because the wiki says that when you pick-up a stone and it comes with a piece of ore, the vein is underneath this stone.

Ok, again, what you describe does not happen.  Picking up surface stones does not reveal secret ore underneath them.  The ore has it's own nuggets that show up on the surface.  You'll see them laying on the ground, just like you see stones.  You just have to run around searching till you find them.  If you're getting propick readings on the surface, without finding nuggets, then I'd imagine you're getting readings of non-metals (gypsum, Kaolinite, etc), which do not leave nuggets on the surface.  Because in order to get propick readings, the metal must be close enough to the surface to leave nuggets.
