So I had a series Idea. It's called Sole Explains! Basically, I'll be picking topics and things from the various games I play and trying my best to explain them. I decided to start off with Minecraft!

Let me know what you think! It was a spur of the moment Idea haha. I realize it isn't really an original Idea but I figured I'd take my own jab at it and see if I can do it good!

Here it is:

Getting the nomenclature right would be a good first step:
What is shown in the video is branch mining (sometimes called feather mining — although MC has it's own definition for that term).
A good explanation of the interaction of various factors may be found HERE

I get what your saying. Thank you for clarifying.

I've heard it been called branch mining before and that does make more sense to me. However, I chose to call it strip mining because that is what it is most commonly referred to by the vast amount of the community.

Since the game is fictional and rarely contains exact real life things, I doubt that referring to something so specifically really matters too much.

I again thank you for providing the information though. Some people may find it useful/educational.
