While trying to mine ore other than coal, nothing comes out of the block.

Re: [SOLVED] 1608.1 - Unable to mine alternative ores

What kind of pick are you using?
You need a higher level pick to mine higher level ores.
small pick -> stone pick -> steel pick -> raw mithril pick -> unbound mithril pick -> enchanted mithril pick

For each level, the previous level of pick is able to mine the materials to make the next level. A raw mithril pick can mine everything, but you get a chance of a block giving more ores when using the higher levels... up to 7 ores per block iirc.

Re: [SOLVED] 1608.1 - Unable to mine alternative ores

I am using a stone pick on a few different types, and I am only getting rough stone from it. I am trying to make a steel pick, and the crafting guide says that I need iron, but I cannot seem to get any iron ore...

I believe it is copper ore that is being shown.

You will probably want to try an Iron Pick and then a Steel Pick.

For instance Tin & Silver ore can only be mined with a Steel Pick or higher.

I think you best bet is to use the Steel Pick (it covers pretty much all minerals)

You're using a small stone pick, you need to upgrade to a regular stone pick (made from rough stone, not rocks) to mine iron.

That was the issue. I managed to make a flint pick instead, and it was working, but that small pickaxe was the issue. Thanks for helping me clear that up.
