mining mechanics

Post by mrbojangles »

Been doing some mining lately and I'm cruious about some of the specific mechanics.

The only information i've found is http://www.uopowergamers.com/s-mining_aos.shtml, which seems to be irrelevant to this era.

The source says that ore can spawn anywhere from 10-34, but I've definitely seen less, and have never seen more than 22 ore in one spot. Does how frequently a spot is used effect the yield?

It also says that the color of a vein can change over time if the vein is more heavily used, is there any validity to this?

Or does anyone have a link to information that is era accurate?

I can tell you for sure that the spots for colored ore never change. It does -seem- like if you hit a spot just after it has respawned, that it will yield less ore than if you had come back at a much later time. I am not sure whether that is true or not though.

my miner strictly mines color spots. and I can guarantee after mining these same spots for over a month now that the magic number is 15. I only get 15 ore from these spots consistenly, doesnt matter if its colored or regular ore it always adds up to 15.

respawn rate has recently changed from about 30 minutes, to 45 minutes. I used to mine in between world save every thirty minutes to keep getting same color spots, now I have to watch the clock instead of world save message.
