This is a very large open pit type mine I have been working on recently. I always thought the look of these type of mines was really cool and couldn't find anyone else that attempted to make one yet so I figured I would give it a try. I didn't base this one on any particular place but just went with the general style. Here are some real open pit mines.




Features:
Mine is stocked with all ore and rare materials specific to a set level.
Ramps, ladders and obsidian encased tunnels connect all the levels.
Underground 13 cart stacker/dispenser with quick load option.
Working spiral excavation tower cart loop.
Forest, meadow, desert, and swamp(wip) biome areas around the mine.
A few starting buildings along with a partial wall.

Lots of things are still a wip or haven't been started yet.

Additional Notes


Need help installing this project? See my Projects Guide for full instructions and other helpful info.

The pit is 180x210 at its widest point and 107m deep, the land around it to which the ore extends is 400x400.
Progress: 80% Complete

Just a thought why not make the edge a little less square? It would be easy to do with world painter. In fact I did that very thing to this map in world painter.

How come the ores are just 1 long and you cant get past without a diamond pick because of obsidian?

Thanks for the feedback. I think you're right, it does make it look a little more real, I'll probably end up keeping it like this unless I can think of something better.

I included a picture where I blew up one of the sides with tunnels. It took probably over 1000 tnt just to do that so filling it would be a pretty epic accident.
