Vein Miner Mod is a mod that lets you mine resources more efficiently. While this task is one of the best ways to get the resources you need for a lot of other aspects of the game, it can become quite tedious. Mining one block often is not enough to get you sufficient resources for building or crafting. As a result, you need to move on to other similar blocks and continue mining. There are ways to get this done faster such as crafting robots, using servants or working with other mods that automate mining. But unlike these other solutions, Vein Miner lets you take care of everything all on your own.
Vein Miner Mod 1.12.2 and 1.11.2 does exactly what its name signifies. It lets you mine an entire vein resource. In simpler terms, what it does is mine all other blocks that have the same resource as the one you just finished working on with your pickaxe. So, if there were 5 similar blocks, you would only need to mine one to get all the resources from the other 4. What makes it even better is that the mod immediately adds the other mined resources to your inventory. You do not need to walk about and collect everything. That is a convenience you certainly will be able to appreciate.
With the mod, you can get started on crafting or building a lot sooner as mining does not take long as it normally would. The more blocks you mine, the more time you save. Another feature you are going to enjoy about Vein Miner is how you can customize the configuration. You can set it to mine on sneak or opt out of that. Just explore the different parameters offered once you have the mod installed. One final note on the installation is that it needs to be on both the server and client side to work properly.
