It’s an extremely small detail and probably doesn’t mean anything but it’s actually better to mine for diamonds at -57 instead of -58 when strip mining because diamonds are more common at -56 than they are at -60. Again, literally only one block but more diamonds are more diamonds.

It should also be noted that because diamond has reduced air exposure, aquifers will have way more exposed diamond than normal caves and you don't have to deal with mobs, from what I've found if you can find a deep aquifer and bring a few doors you can be swimming in diamonds in minutes.

@Scoot Imaboot yeah, it’s really a weird mechanic to get used to. Writhing the first Minecraft day I was able to punch a tree for torches, climb down a surface cave to a negative value, collect a dozen diamonds, all before I made a bed, got a source of food, or any other early game tasks. I feel like with 1.18 getting diamonds is no longer a challenge, so instead of working towards getting diamond tools, you focus on building instead.

Yep. I started a new survival world and tried an hour of strip mining and got two diamonds, and within four minutes of caving I had 13 diamonds. I found a surface cave in a mountain, used a water source to “surf” down to y-30, and I lit up a ~50 block radius and found tons of ores

I really wish Mojang would add a potion to make ores glow like they did in the original 1.17 minecon showcase. Maybe it would use a glow berry as its active ingredient. I love these new caves and exploring them is great. However, torches are a bit tedious and night vision kills the ambience of being underground. Being able to see by ores would not only make it easier to find ores, it would allow for a more natural feeling experience in the caves.

While the ore dstribution changes everything, I think its a refreshing change to shake up the mining, and make different strategies for different ores. The old going to y=11 and mining for everything was a bit boring, and eventually the only reason to do it was for diamonds. Now with the copper and iron veins it makes a more realistic experience where it is genuinely going to pay to search for the iron and copper veins. And with all the other stuff in the caves its going to make a real incentive to do more mining and caving in the game, where up til now most people are farming all the resources other than diamond.

Before I started watching streamers, I never realized how common strip mining was. I have always gone "caving" which is exploring caves for resources. I think it is more fun and I was under the impression Mojang wanted to encourage caving over strip mining. But I guess it is user preference.
nanannananan 22 gün önce
I enjoy strip mining but eventually gets boring and tedious so I go caving which makes it more of an adventure especially when you get deep and have to figure out how you got where you came in. With cave update makes it a lot more difficult to figure out where you came from.

Given that deepslate takes longer to mine than stone, does that mean that mining for diamonds above y=0 might still be fast since you break more blocks in the same amount of time, even though there's less diamonds to be found?
OrigamiMarie Aylar önce
@Joshua Rosen yup. I guess some people might enjoy mining more than trading, but if you like herding villagers or particular kinds of exploring, the mining level of diamonds is kinda moot.
Joshua Rosen

@OrigamiMarie I started a new world (for the first time in seven years) in 1.18 and despite having full diamond everything, I have only used two diamonds and that was to make an enchanting table. If you take into account that you occasionally find diamonds as loot, I'm likely to find them by accident more quickly than I use them. Diamonds have become fairly worthless in an SP world.
TheGamesforreal Aylar önce
@Daethbane While at the same time, caves are MUCH bigger, so when you find a cave, you find THOUSANDS of exposed blocks almost instantly. One glance with a night vision potion can still reveal a TON of diamonds even with the exposed modifier for those blocks. Definitely worth checking big caves from what i've seen so far.
Octofinite Aylar önce
@Daethbane But don’t forget, caves are way more bigger now. So you are going to find more diamonds while caving than before

@Airblader no argument here, I don't mine for diamonds much after I get a village running. I would rather harvest and trade three stacks of pumpkins for a chest plate than try to find eight diamonds.

I wonder what the difference is between branch mining versus caving based on cave generation. I suppose that'd be a good #myth to answer "is caving more efficient than branch mining?" You can probably get some good analysis on this method per ore type versus the ore's maximal distribution point/branch methods.

the caving’s probably more fun tbh. like yeah, diamonds might be more frequently found in branch mining due to reduced exposure, but it’s also extremely monotonous to just mine in a straight line for an hour.

Kei Aylar önce
I think it depends on how you measure efficiency tbh. Caving will have a lot less strain on tools and you'll have to stop to clear your inventory much less often, but you'll have to waste more time fending off mobs and taking the time to go slower or risk getting lost/going in circles or falling into a big pit. Personally I prefer a nice orderly branch mine any day!

I personally despise the changes made to coal. I like that diamonds spawn more frequently lower down than they ever did before, making for a nice risk/reward of going deep in these big caverns to find diamonds. But not being able to find any coal for torches at all while down there is a massive disadvantage. I just feel like they implemented a change that encourages you to either spend time chopping trees for charcoal before going caving, or going caving in near surface level caves specifically looking for coal. And all I want to ask is, who is going to go mining specifically for coal, I understand going minings for diamonds, but not for coal. So in my mind them making the coal spawns more “realistic” just inconveniences me while I play more than anything. When I go mining I want to explore deep caves, not strip mine near the surface for most coal potential…

@Casper the Cooked hmm, I didn't think of that. I was probably misremembering. Most of the coal I got is probably from mining out a huge area for my base. If you need torches, maybe make an automatic wood farm (using nether trees, I think it can be fully automatic) and send the wood into furnaces with a carpet duplicator or bamboo farm for fuel, but that's not very early game i guess...
Casper the Cooked
Casper the Cooked 21 gün önce
@VIBaJ 16 unless they changed it, coal didn’t spawn below a certain level, I certainly didn’t find any in deepslate levels. And I was cave dwelling, not strip mining. I am trying to avoid strip mining because it’s a boring waste of time for the most part. This new update is good mostly, it helps me not have to strip mine for diamonds, but coal has been a commodity for me and my friends. We all have difficulty finding coal, because none of us want to mine specifically for coal.

It's really not as big a deal as you act. I get more than enough coal for torches mining at y = -55 for diamonds. I've never had to mine specifically for coal. I get more coal than I use for torches. Maybe you're using too many torches. If you're making a 2 by 1 tunnel, you can space them out with 24 blocks between torches and mobs won't spawn in 1.18

I like the effort into the numbers, I've also been busy crunching these, however, I've used a datapack I made specifically for the purpose of testing realistic 1x1 mining tunnels for diamonds and have actually found that -53 is also a good level to be standing/lying on when mining for diamonds. My method involves "mining" through thousands of blocks artificially and counting the diamonds. This method, for every 2k blocks, produced an average of 27 diamonds while at (standing on) -53, -58 had an average of 28.9, 7% more. These tests simulate mining through 300k-400k blocks at these levels. Taking this into consideration, -58 is the best for pure diamond numbers, but you run into lava. Meanwhile, -53 is the safest and most consistent, you get a bit fewer diamonds, however, unlike -58 you will find caves on -53, which has a chance to make up some of the diamonds with ones you find there. Edit: number corrections, and stuff

About night vision. Poppies in a suspicious stew gives flashing night vision for a few short seconds. Enough to give the player a brief view of the caves. If we had gotten bundles in 1.18 stews would have been way easier to bulk store in uncrafted form but it is what it is. Good for seeing into the dark offshoots so you don't get ambushed or miss obvious diamonds.

@thecloudkingdom They'd be good for briefly spotting enemies or resources where you can't see like high ledges in ravines or really big cave floors. One thing you could do is have the bowls prestewed as "charges" like an ability. You can speed up crafting of suspicious stews by shift clicking the regular stew and just adding the flower.

@John Willis You cant put multiple suspicious stew in a stack, because they are unstackable, which means it would take less space to have 4 ingredients stacked upto 64 (with one bowl) than to have 10 stews. Which also means you would've been able to put just only one stew in a bundle.

One thing I will say, I find that mobility, abundant food, a shield, and being able to reflexively block yourself in in the new caves is way more important than what tool you have. Legitimately mining diamonds feels more like an epic chase than a stripmine.

Thanks, it's always good to have this info. Still, we need to think of a good early game strategy for this. When you still have no enchantments, no potions, and only a regular iron pickaxe, is it worth it going all the way down to -58? You will be mining slow on deepslate, most caves you find will be useless without night vision, and you may not be able to replace your pickaxe if you don't find enough iron before it breaks.

From my experience, I recommend making an iron farm as soon as possible. Even at the best level for mining iron other than in mountains, I went through iron pickaxes without getting any iron. Once you have an iron farm, you'll get far more iron than you'll ever need early game. If you want to branch mine, it might be best to mine above the lava pools, though it seems like they are much rarer, so maybe not.

As someone who has played quite a bit of 1.18 snapshots, I would recommend going down a cave system first. With the new cave system you mine for hours without finding an end to them all. You find tonnes of stuff. Diamond is harder due them having reduced air exposure. To counteract that issue I would recommend that you explore deep aquifers with doors or a magma block since water doesnt count as air which means that there is a higher spawning rate.
Tallywort Aylar önce
As far as branch spacing goes, while having a 2 block spacing between tunnels does indeed uncover everything, for optimal time spent digging you want to have the spacing between them at least large than the usual cluster size you'll see. (and yes with the new veins that would mean a spacing wider than the vein itself) And honestly, you might as well use a single long tunnel, instead of multiple shorter ones spaced next to each other. (caveat being that you also might as well make a new tunnel every mining session because walking that tunnel before starting to mine is obviously also a time loss)
Otto Knabe
Otto Knabe Aylar önce
What I like to do (or more accurately liked to do in 1.16) is to first mine a long way into one direction while placing a torch every 10 blocks, then mining parallel to that with 9 blocks inbetween so that I can connect both long tunnels at each torch without placing more torches. Then maybe do that again but offset 5 blocks forwards and to the side to reach clusters that I might have missed in the large grid, but I usually skip that part

this question might have been asked a lot already but: with the fact that lava lakes will make mining below y-55 more difficult, wouldn't it maybe be worth it to stay above y -55? i mean yes, branch mining at y -58 is going to have the highest propability of finding more diamonds, but when you are slower because of having to block off, or swim through lava (with fire res) then it could potentially be easier and more efficient to stay above lava and just mine at y-54, no?

I'll likely just end up mining the same as usual where i empty out entire areas and all...but thanks for letting us know that y-59 (standing on it) is the best level for mining for diamonds...most people though will likely treat the y-55 level you mentioned as their base mone level as they don't want to run into lava, like the old y11 level where you were mining around without having to worry about it falling on you...from the chart at that level the amount of diamonds looked close to the same? I may have made a mistake as they werent showed side by side for long, but that might be the new y11 that people go for all the time because "below that there's too much lava" as i was told by a friend of mine ^_^

Deepslate is extremely slow compared to mining stone.... i'd imagine it would be about 5 times slower meaning if there are 50% less diamonds at that stone level compared to the lower deepslate level you'd still get more diamonds per hour mining higher because you'd cover a larger surface area more quickly....

I really like how diamonds are most common down next to bedrock now. That feels very intuitive in a way the previous distributions wasn't quite.

I think this might be mistakenly calculated, since while you are technically exposing 3 blocks on the same y-level, the one in front of you is essentially meaningless since you'll mine that one next anyway. I don't think this changes much with the calculations, but still something to keep in mind. Every other tip here is top though.

Mining is insane! I love the giant deepslate caves. I found a geode with a zombie spawner inside of it, I found a cave spider spawner, geode and giant iron ore vein all next to each other.

So wouldn't mining at -55 be the best then, because it minimizes slowdowns caused by mining straight into a wall of lava? How much less ore is there at that level?

Then there would be 0.14% of the blocks exposed be diamonds instead of 0.16%. So I think it's really worth it to mine at -55 instead of -59

Wouldn't you want to space them 2 blocks apart since smaller diamond veins are more common? Its more likely that a vain of 1-4 would be completely hidden in the 1 block wide dead zone between your strip mines.
Joshua Rosen
Joshua Rosen Aylar önce
@Aj It doesn't matter that you miss bits out - it doesn't have any effect on efficiency ie how many diamonds per block mined. The size of the groups is irrelevant (except for making sure that the tunnels are far enough apart that you never encounter a block you've already mined or exposed). For a given distribution of ore group sizes, every single new block exposed has the same probability of being a diamond so the only thing that matters is how many new blocks are exposed. Leaving blocks unturned as you put it does not reduce the efficiency whatsoever.
Aj Aylar önce
@Joshua Rosen if the tunnels are that far apart then that leaves enough room between them to never see all but the rarest ore groups. In 1.18 veins that are only a single block wide are so much more common than others. That's why it's important to not miss them. It's even more important considering the longer mining time deepslate requires. To be the most efficient you need to make sure every block you like exposes the most new blocks, and you do not leave any block unturned. The best mining strategy is to use trapdoors to mine a 1 block tunnel, then 2 blocks to the left or right mine another tunnel 1 block higher. Then another 2 blocks but 1 block lower.
Joshua Rosen
Joshua Rosen Aylar önce
@Aj But you don't expose the same number of ore groups or new blocks (assuming you mine out all ore you find) which is what matters. There is no point exposing the same block twice. If you find some ore two or more blocks wide, you'd find it in the first tunnel and then in the second, it's already found. The tunnels need to be far enough apart never to encounter the same group of ores twice or you are wasting effort.
Aj Aylar önce
@Joshua Rosen except as long as there's at least 2 blocks between tunnels you expose the exact same number or blocks
Joshua Rosen
Joshua Rosen Aylar önce
They should be spaced apart as far as the largest clusters. It doesn't matter if you miss diamonds but it does matter if you mine blocks but expose fewer new blocks than you would with proper spacing. The amount of space in which you can mine is practically infinite so it's efficiency that is important, not completeness.

It's at y = -55 or y = -54 (whichever is above lava pools, I can't tell). The deepslate taking longer to mine is not enough to overcome the much higher amount of diamonds down there

I've always done the 2x1 grid with a 2 block spacing. I tried a 3 block spacing and found that I missed something in the middle. I never liked the pokey hole method. The 2 block spacing is even more important now that there are single ores. If you do 3 block spacing you never see the center block and there could be a diamond in there

This is really useful. I started my first new world for 7 years a few days ago in RC3. I've already got fully tricked out diamond armour and weapons but I've only found 5 diamonds through mining. It appears I've been mining too high up. However, it does highlight how useless diamonds are in SP worlds. So far, the only diamonds I've needed were for an enchanting table so my total diamond needs so far has been two.

Hey so I recently wrote a math assignment specifically on the chances of finding diamonds per chunk. I learned some really important stuff from this and just wanted to share. So basically the way that I know Minecraft works is attempting to randomly load things in per chunk. I know that biomes are spread over larger areas and have certain rules but per each chunk a diamond ore attempts to spawn usually once. So taking that information I analysed where diamonds could be more reliably found on a specific Y level but then I realized something. If diamonds spawn per chunk then there is technically a higher chance of finding diamonds at chunk borders because you are in the spot between two chunks meaning there are two chances that diamonds can spawn. I analysed the chances of finding diamonds at a chunk border Vs just finding them on the old y 11, and it turned out you will statistically find them more often at chunk borders. Finding this out I calculated what was the best way to expose the most blocks with the least mining and highest chance of finding diamonds. And it turned out to be best to mine in several rows at different evenly spaced Y levels around a chunk's border in comparison to just normal strip mining. And with how Xisuma mentioned the 1x2 strip mining with 3 blocks between each row instead of 2. It is actually better to mine with two blocks inbetween each row as exposing more blocks per chunk leads to a higher chance of finding diamonds as well as the fact that diamonds spawn more often in small ore vein sizes (1x1 or 1x2) especially in 1.18 considering the changes made. I know that I did this for 1.16 but I still think the information can be useful. Thanks for reading! Tldr: The data was calculated over 1000 chunks because I had to manually count how many chunks per 100 chunks had diamonds in it and I used this to calculate and find a higher chance of finding diamonds at chunk borders more effeciently then single Y level strip mining.

1x1 trap door technique just makes it faster to travel through a mine, which increased the odds of finding a vein If you do 2x1 tunnels every other 2 blocks, you expose way more blocks With both techniques you can always be 1 block away from a vein and never know, but 2x1 reduces the chances of that by exposing more blocks. It's always amusing to me going through an old 1x1 tunnel and getting all the diamonds that were not mined

I still set up a mining base at y 11 in 1.18, honestly seems about the same for getting started but it's also nice to know how deep to go if you just absolutely need more than y 11 will produce, but honestly that's only in old worlds (or the instance where I took 2 of my favorite old worlds and adjusted a new world (by generating the surface structures I wanted to save) just to move to 1.18 the day before the update). I still haven't tried a "fresh" 1.18 world yet, but I'm sure I will one night I get bored with my worlds

what I typically do for my branch mines, regardless of elevation, is I have an antechamber at the entrance with furnaces, chests, a crafting table, etc. for mining supplies and to store what I've dug up. Coming off this antechamber in each cardinal direction (north, east, south, and west), I have a 3x3 tunnel. Off each 3x3 tunnel, I have a 1x2 tunnel on either side every 2 blocks

Very useful video although it doesn't help me with the bad rng I always suffer. Played my first 1.18 survival game over the last few days... I've spent 5.5 hours mining at Y-58(or well standing on y-58 as mentioned in your video). I tried several different mining patterns at that level, and how many diamonds do I have to show for it... 6 diamonds(and one of those was found in a cave I mined through whilst mining down to that level). I've gone through an entire stack of Iron worth of picks(more probably, as I've had to twice go up to y16 to get more iron for tools), I haven't crafted any diamond tools yet as given the rng that seems to be happening in this seed I don't want use those until I can get some enchants so they won't run out. Either my seed is just extremely unfortunate or the fact that most of my mining has happened in technically a Forest Biome's has had some effect. Tomorrow I'll make a really long tunnel and take my mining operation a few hundred blocks away from where it is now(into the neighbouring Plains biome) and see if that makes any difference. Failing that I'm going to give up and start a new seed because this distribution seems ridiculous.

"Diamond ore is less likely to be exposed to air: 50% of ore blocks from the first batch and 70% from the second batch will not generate." There's plenty more to be found by digging. To get through the deepslate faster, I find TNT mining to be effective. A diamond will drop from an explosion. "Fortune III gives a 20% chance (each) to give 2, 3, or 4 diamonds, averaging 2.2 diamonds."
