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.

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.
