STOP!! Mining Time!!

Hey guys this is my new mod. Its called VeinMiner and it mines veins :D

Click on one visible ore cell and it will designate the whole vein for mining.

Have fun.

UPDATE
Should work with any ore now. Works perfectly with Expanded Mining (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=10915.0) and therefore should work with all ores that have a proper ThingDef.
<isResourceRock>true</isResourceRock> is the key!

UPDATE
Added Mining Brush which allows one click circle mining designations. Per default when you first click the brush icon it will have the perfect radius of a Trade Beacon but you can change the size with Q and E keys up to a radius of 30 - be aware the bigger radii might cause your PC to smelt. 

Actually this should have become a whole new mod but it could have caused issues using VeinMiner and MineBrush together and I didnt feel like making a DesignatorNurse at the moment. If we run into the designator def problems more with other mods using them I might think about making a DesignatorNurse. :D

Tell me what you think

UPDATE
DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND I ADDED Gentz (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=15886.msg168258#msg168258) UPDATE TO THE ORIGINAL POST!! Thanks for updating it my friend

Have fun!!

JELLIE!
you deliberately come up with these right after I've spent the previous day setting up trade beacon zones or mining veins black by block for hours on end

I wish you wohnt (German skills!) in NZ like itchy so you could release these like a day earlier

Another good example of small things that make a huge difference when running a colony, no more miners slacking off with ore right in front of them and more importantly no more checking that you designated all the ore in a vein.

lol i see what you did there!  ;D
But seriously, I got a bunch of mods (90+) that modify the same files, so I'm kinda wanting to make a bundle that has all those fixed. :) I mean, mine are working fine since i assimilate the mods into my existing files, but if people just download and slap the files into the mod folder, they wont work since the same file will be loaded multiple times and there can be only one!  8)

Yeesh, you guys. All that fun stuff being created and all those useful additions. Makes me wanna do some modding myself, but then I remember... I got no real ideas of stuff I'd want to add to the game, couldn't even make semi-okay textures if my life depended on it and I basically am stuck to modding with xml files.

I can draw a potato!  ;D But don't tell anyone I was just trying to draw a circle.
Messing around with the .xml is a good start, getting familiar with how things work and just extending yourself from there. :) I love modding and the Rimworld community, such good people everywhere. <3

not really =P it's more like telling your people to exhaust a vein they've found
sure you get some bit of information you shouldn't be able to get but

now if Jellie could somehow make the to be mined bits that are in the 'fog of war' not visible it'd be really cool
but it might not be worth the time to make it work? ;D

The VeinMiner only works on ore blocks you already discovered - so its not really cheating as its only a matter of time until you assigned all the blocks of your vein.

And thank you very much to everyone giving so much support to me. It means a lot and I love that you guyss like what I love doing <3

This is a great mod.  Using this with the Mk.III Mobile Mineral Sonar keeps my colonies in stock of the various ores.  It's a pity it doesn't work with my own uranium veins though.  Oh, well.

Anyway, I hope you don't mind, but I made a patch for Vein Miner and Haul Priority.  You can find it here (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=10443.0).  I include no resources from either mod, it's just a simple menu patch.  :)

Not sure if your aware. MechDef2 - update6. breaks compatibility as after installing and booting up, in the orders tab, mine vein is gone. but there's a new button to collect sand.
I'm assuming that MechDef2 alters the same files as this mod.

thanks friend. i already have that mod.

Use this mod and place it after both mech def 2 and vein miner, im not 100% sure it will work but let me know if it does. This mod makes it so that both vein miner and priority haul will work together because of the same issue with one button replacing the other depending on what load order you use. This mod doesn't add anything to the game it is only a "fix" for compatibility issues with mods that use the same designator buttons. https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=10443.0;attach=6601

remember to make sure to load both mech def and vein miner first then more designators.
-Mehc Def 2
-vein miner
-more designators

+1  There is no reason to not use this mod.  What little information you gain from using it is no more than what you would have gotten by constantly going back and clicking mine as the miners dig out the edge.  Simply a time saver.

Im sorry but you will have to wait a little longer for the updates. Id love to push them out right now but unfortunately Im pretty busy at the moment doing things and stuff and what not. I didnt forget you guys. If Tynan keeps up with his practice it will be in the game sooner or later anyways (http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/215/7/c/twitchkappa_by_jrzu_767-d7ti2in.gif)

Sorry guys but it only works on vanilla ores because there wasnt a proper way for me to distinguish them from normal rocks other than the DefName. I will have a good look at the ThingDefs again and see if I can find something new.

Hi JuliaEllie and everyone!

I have found a *.dll way that works so far for alpha 10f to add extra mod compatibility support with VeinMiner,
by adding a small addition to your 'isOre' call to check for active mods and add appropriate ores accordingly.

Are you interested in a helping hand?  ???

Ok, I have one solution up and running with expanded mining. But will keep that one private in respect to you of course, and curiously wait and see if we managed to solve the issue in the same way.  ;D

If you get any issues thou I am still lending a helping hand,

#ShamelessBump

Shameless? I'm still learning and personally I was wondering how to make my "patch" more dynamic/smarter to detect ores.
I am really impressed by your for me perfect solution. You are a Genius!  ;D
(I looked at your new code and very effective solution  :) )

My method was way dumber and purely based on if the "Mod" in question exist and is activated.

Code: [Select]
public bool isOre(ThingDef def)
{
System.Collections.Generic.List<ThingDef> list = new System.Collections.Generic.List<ThingDef>
{
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineablePlasteel", true),
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineableUranium", true),
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineableGold", true),
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineableSilver", true),
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineableSteel", true)
};
                        //My addition for the mod below just for a first try.
if (ModsConfig.IsActive("Expanded Mining"))
{
System.Collections.Generic.List<ThingDef> collection = new System.Collections.Generic.List<ThingDef>
{
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineableIron", true),
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineableCopper", true),
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineableAluminium", true),
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineableTitanium", true),
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineableRiminium", true),
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineableCoal", true),
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineableDiamond", true),
DefDatabase<ThingDef>.GetNamed("MineableTin", true)
};
                                //Append to current list
list.AddRange(collection);
}
return list.Contains(def);
}

the shaped brushes are a great idea :)

but for the trade beacon i normally just mine a square 17x17 with a column next to the center for roof support

i would find it more useful in the search of geysers and ores to apply the following annexed patterns, for example ;) (mine every third line which allows to see the composition of the two lines in the middle with minimum mining i think. the perpendicular line in the middle is for easy passage in that direction)

Just started playing with mods today, and I love this one! The strip miner is great, but I have one minor issue with it.

I found that I can't seem to resize the horizontal strips. The helptext says to use 8, 4 5 and 6 on the numpad to resize. 4 and 5 work great for moving the vertical lines about, and 8 correctly widens the horizontal lines, but 5 doesn't seem to do anything. (I tried the 2 key as well, since it might be logical. Alas, no such luck.) Any chance this could be fixed? Thanks!

Mine is throwing the same error as harpo99999. It seems to only be the mine brush that broke in this update. I even tried re-downloading the mod again but still same. If you want to get rid of your error harpo, until a fix comes out, I just removed mine brush from the designation categories and added the new ones from A11 so they should work.

I hope Julia comes out with a patch soon because my "fix" isn't really a fix... it just stops the error message by removing the mine brush...

Hi, I have one little thought for you Jull. The veinminer tool could make a big trouble despite of its usefullness. Im talking bout the moment when ore vein lays between two non-mountain areas. In this situation I see a single node of ore, dig it with vm and ''hello, new passage to my base!"" It is not so critical, since Tynan implemented sapers, but still could add some troubles. So my sugesstion is to add 'check for non-mountain tiles next to ore, and if it fails, then don't designate that tile for mining.
Hope my idea was clear enough, though I don't think so ;)

Raids can still spawn their, ya know. It might be beneficial. Anyways, you and your colonists don't know if its a mountain back thier, or an empty area. I like it as is... its very beneficial to know you have an undefended flank which they could spawn in and kill you fom.

The fact you can see their is an open space too it means that their is already a path too it. End of story is that you should pay more attention where ya minning.

the beacon does NOT need to have all the space mined out, I use in a12 a 10x6 matrix for wall sections ie every 10 squares in one direction,i place 1 wall per every six squares, and place the beacons so that they cover the entire HUGE storeroom(I have one beacon outside, and at last count in the general stock room over thirty beacons without issue in my underground base and the store room is over 10% of the map

Just wanted to inform everyone that this mod still mostly works in A13.
Vein Miner and Strip Miner still work. The mining brush no longer displays what area it will mine when you click, and starts at a default of radius 1, but otherwise it works.

It was specifically written to include any rock which has the mineral rock tag to work with any other modded ore so it should work.

I had to sort of merge this and HaulPriority because they cancelled each other out. Only the last loaded showed it's buttons. I think I just merged the differences in this file "Defs\DesignationCategoryDefs\DesignationCategories.xml" in the last loaded mod. But, for the life of me, I couldn't get the VeinMiner mod textures to work, which really bothered me. It just shown the vanilla mining image for all VeinMiner buttons.

Surely there is a way to add a button instead of rewriting the specialDesignatorClasses?

What I did was open Defs\DesignationCategoryDefs\DesignationCategories.xml of the mod I'm going to load last, in my case it was VeinMiner, then add the missing lines from the other mod. It should look like this.
Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Defs>
  <DesignationCategoryDef>
    <defName>Orders</defName>
    <label>orders</label>
    <description>Designate specific interactions with specific things.</description>
    <order>900</order>
    <specialDesignatorClasses>
      <li>Designator_Cancel</li>
      <li>Designator_Deconstruct</li>
      <li>Designator_Mine</li>
      <li>Designator_Haul</li>
      <li>Designator_PlantsCut</li>
      <li>Designator_PlantsHarvest</li>
      <li>Designator_PlantsHarvestWood</li>
      <li>Designator_Hunt</li>
      <li>Designator_Slaughter</li>
      <li>Designator_Tame</li>
      <li>Designator_Uninstall</li>
      <li>Designator_Claim</li>
      <li>Designator_Strip</li>
      <li>Designator_RearmTrap</li>
      <li>Designator_Open</li>
      <li>Designator_PlanAdd</li>
      <li>Designator_PlanRemove</li>
      <li>HaulPriority.Designator_HaulPriority</li>
      <li>HaulPriority.Designator_HaulPriorityHighPriorityOverride</li>
      <li>HaulPriority.Designator_Unforbid</li>
      <li>VeinMiner.Designator_VeinMiner</li>
      <li>MineBrush.DesognatorMineBrush</li>
      <li>MineBrush.StripMiner</li>
    </specialDesignatorClasses>
  </DesignationCategoryDef>
</Defs>

That way VeinMiner loads the designators for HaulPriority too.

The fix only removes the errors, but doesn't actually fix the graphics, did I understand this correctly? At least on my system.

It doesn't replace the mine icons with the veinminer icons, because somehow the fundamental nature of the way graphics are called by every other mod fails in this instance. It wasn't some lazy error on the mod author's part. There are still mining icons, they just don't have, say, a red V background behind the picture of the mine pick.

I wasted an hour trying to figure out what the hell was wrong and asked a few other people on Slack for a sanity check (they claimed I was not insane; not sure myself), but ultimately I gave it up. I can call base rimworld graphics, which is what I did to fix the mine brush (that and it had a weird altitude layer that caused it to not render when zoomed in, which I addressed), but third-party resources wouldn't pull. Tried every way to form the string, images in every folder, different images in the normal folder, images from other mods, etc.

Maybe some issue with trying to use two assemblies?

Anyway, my main goal was just not to get the damn warnings every time I started since I'm testing other things and I had to scroll the box just to be sure each time, and I figured I'd share the "fix."

I'm here to report that I've also seen this error.  Same modpack, downloaded from that link, which links to the VeinMiner Fix page of this post.  I'm going to do some testing to see if the problem is with the original VeinMiner in the first post, or if the problem is within the fix.  I'm also going to check and see why that error comes up under the error:

Code: [Select]
30  Oject.reference not set to an instance of an object
1  PawnPathPool leak: more paths than spawned pawns.  Force-recovering.

In my game, it leads to pawns standing around attempting to pick things up for one tick every million or so and, for whatever reason, failing that.  They then stand there - seemingly stunned - only to do so again shortly after.

I'm able to draft them and move them, or prioritize a specific thing only to have them complete one action toward it before going back to doing whatever it is they're trying to do.

I'll look into it and get back.

Edit:
I've defined custom categories for myself, so when I went to update them, I noticed we've switched from esm.Designator_MineVein to VeinMiner.Designator_VeinMiner. Different cooks? Also noticed you added the Strip miner and Bush miner ("VeinMiner.DesognatorMineBrush" but it's consistent so whatever) which is really neat.
Not sure where I'm going with this, but one suggestion is maybe move the MineVein/StripMine designators up next to the Mine designator and put the MineBush designator next to the Harvest/Cutplant designators so everything is grouped logically.

ESM VeinMiner is a different mod, which needs CCL. This one here dont and also provide additional designators

cant reproduce. Strip mining and brush mining works fine for me:/ Fully zoomed out, the Cursor gets red crosses with brush miner designator. With Q and E you define the size of the brush

Would it be possible to do something similar to this, but for growing zones?

For instance click on regular soil, and it creates a growing zone the size of all linked regular soil tiles. Similarly (and more importantly!) for Rich Soil. Perhaps with a max size so it doesn't go overboard trying to set the whole map as a growing zone. If that is a problem, maybe just for rich soil and don't worry about the others.

Hmmm, well, done rambling now!

Thanks for the great mod either way!

Is there any chance that the veinminer disignator could appear when you click a vein? It's a pain having to open the Orders tab to look for the VeinMiner designator amongst all the other designators.

I've been tinkering with dlls and managed to make some fixes for VeinMiner that I thought others might appreciate. Do with it what you will.

I only made changes to the dll but I'm uploading the whole thing for convenience.

It just turned out as 3. Somewhere in the code it jumps 3 for every 1 step. I couldn't find the source of that. But anyway, 3 is fine considering the smallest vein is probably 2x2. You wont miss a vein if it's 3 tile stripes.

Ok. Figured it out. Did a search for A16 news in the last 24 hours. Looks like A16 unstable has been released. What excitement!

I used this mod as a base and updated for A16 under the name MineItAll, full credit given for original mod.

Steam:

Just a warning, MineItAll will show it's compatible with the A16 update, but causes a crash and prevents restarting the game.

And it was based on my fixed version with a few extra features. Which version was yours based on?

I used the Steam version that shows it's compatible with A16.

I downloaded and redownloaded it about an hour ago and it causes a crash each time, with not being able to restart.

Edit:  I downloaded the one from your link, and it shows as red in the Steam mods.  Don't know if you're on Steam, but that means it's not compatible (or the game doesn't think it's compatible).

The steam version I'm talking about is called MineItAll which is a clone of this.  That shows as white, or compatible, but crashes the game.   The steam author is aware of the conflict according to the Workshop page.

I originally updated Veinminer to A15 with extra features. That's the second link and I never updated it to A16.

The top link was updated to A16 based on my version. I've tested it. It works perfectly. Did you download the second link by mistake?

Just to confirm, the first is the one from a link that just says Dropbox?

I'll give that a try.

I think I did use the second link. Are you on Steam or able to upload there so others can use it? I don't know how it works with sharing/cloning mods.

I'll start a new thread on this as well. There was a problem with the first release I did where a remant pdb file was causing crashes for some people.

Here's the lates dropbox link for the mod: https://www.dropbox.com/s/gde9ymeblw9w64i/MineItAll.zip?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/gde9ymeblw9w64i/MineItAll.zip?dl=0)

I checked this one out because you didn't say. Yes, it looks like it is based on my version.

The differences I can see are;
- New designator textures - I could take it or leave it.
- Dark brush texture - I don't like this as it's too hard to see. The bright red original is much better.
- Tidied up code - I like tidy code but I don't think that alone justifies a new name.
- Reverted one of my additions - I originally changed it so that you can mark a vein whether the visible ore is already marked or not. You've reverted it to be like the original where you need to clear the mark first before you can use the vein marker on it. I find that really annoying so I still prefer my version.

All in all I don't see enough justification for a new named mod. It is same mod but with a few cosmetic changes and a new name. And some of those changes made it worse. I'm just going to keep using Hattis A16 conversion of my version
https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=9616.msg283437#msg283437


As to steam, I don't like it. Personally I would want to share my mod where everyone can download it but I think steam only allows you to download it via steam (I could be wrong. It's very confusing to navigate). Here, everyone can download it. Steam and non steam users alike.

I see where you're coming from. I think it's more than just a vein miner with the other tools, but regardless, I made some additional tweaks this evening.

- Added your last point. This was not actually a reversion, I had some original source code without your addition and missed it since it was a Boolean value change at then end of the AcceptanceReport method, it took me a while to notice it.
- Bootstrapping: No more def file. I felt like this could possibly conflict with other mods. I pulled some code from CCL and a few other forum posts for detours and designator injection and added these in.
- Texture changes: these are last on my list. I didn't like the red, personal oppinion, but I don't necessarily like the dark either. I may tool with these more soon, working on another mod for prison extensions as well.
- Steam: Like it or don't, all personal opinion. I treat it like a build automation system. I can subscribe to mods, when they get updated, it installs the new version automatically. I see benefits in both sides, steam and non-steam, that's why I posted both links.

If you don't mind checking it out again, the old link should work, but here it is again: https://www.dropbox.com/s/gde9ymeblw9w64i/MineItAll.zip?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/gde9ymeblw9w64i/MineItAll.zip?dl=0)

That's more like it! :)

The bootstrapping is awesome. Kudos to you. I would have done the bootstrapping myself, when I did my update, but I couldn't wrap my head around how to do it. Maybe looking at how you did it with a mod I'm familiar with with help me use it in the future.

So I'd use your version now, although I might change the brush texture until you come up with a better color.

Playing with it I noticed an exploit that I never noticed before, maybe because the bright red of the brush made it harder to see. The exploit is you can use the brush to look into mountains. I don't know if you can do anything about it but it would be great if you could.

You can also "look" into mountains with the vein mine designator. If you click the middle of a mountain you usually get a sound plus a message saying to have to click mineable ore. But if you hit a hidden clear area it makes a different sound with no message. This should be easy to fix. Just make it behave the same in both cases.

Here is a short video showing both cases.

Interesting, I didn't notice the x-ray vision ability either. It might have something to do with the altitude setting? I don't know enough about the API yet, I'll tool with it tonight.

Let me know if you need help with the bootstrapping. I took it from some other mod(s) code base(s) that I found and modified it a bit.

From what I can see there is the injectors class was added and the bootstrapper was added to the main MineItAll class.
Could you possible give a brief description of what each part does? I'm not too experienced with c# yet.

No really if i recall correctly, but rshingleton has updated it in a new threat (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=28330.msg286180#msg286180) and i think there a also updates by Rock5 and Hatti somewhere in this threat.

I agree with @timeandtherani. In fact, you should add it to the workshop. I know there are a couple there already but they are not A17 and yours is. Anyway, thank you for updating this to work with A17.

BTW. if you are someone like me, who looked a long time how to select a vein with Allow tool.
Select one one, then right click at the Mine icon not at the Select similar one.
