Recently been playing stone heath again and discovered this good seed for a silver mine.
Was playing hard mode for about 3 in game weeks and had built up a small village. Due to the demand of stronger armor and weapons I was forced to set up a mine. I quickly built up a wall and a tavern nearby to protect the miner’s since the mine was away from the village.
see the thing is ore veins are randomly generated even with the same seed so nobody will ever find that same silver vein on that seed in the same place, unless the random number gods are being particularly kind.
But I can’t find the mother of all ore veins on a seed tell Bob, Bill and Ben where it is and they will all find it, it just wont be there on there PC’s, hence there aren’t any ore related posts in the interesting world seeds thread…
I have seen several veins that yielded a lot more than 200 ores. I don’t think this is something you should consider when starting a map. Trees, mountains, plants… everything is more important. You can find more than enough ores all over all maps.
