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...

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

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.

I will wait for someone who knows. I already tried with pine plank and apple plank. And this stone was mined with stone pick (but made from rocks)

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

This way to build pick, shovel etc. does not exist any more. The next level are tools build of fire stone. You get it digging gravel with a stone shovel made of the little stones you get digging dirt (by hand or by shovel). With a fire stone pick you can get copper and tin and iron. If you melt tin and copper to bronze, you can create bronze tools. A bronze pick can dig gold and silver in addition. Create a Guidebook and look into it. Darkroses' release notes to the different kinds of furnaces are helpful, particularly concerning the melting of iron to create iron picks.

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

Here's a guide to tech/material progression for 1709.00 onwards:

Start with only your hands
you can dig:
    dirt
    sand
    gravel (randomly drops flint)
    rocks from dirt
    leaves
    plants

Make small stick and stone tools, and a wooden bucket
you can dig:
    water
    stone
    limestone
    coal
    copper
    tin
    salt
Make a campfire to cook food, bake clay into vessels, and smelt tin and copper

Edit: the stone tools are currently bugged and can't dig copper, you'll need to make flint tools to dig copper and tin.

Make Flint or Copper tools, and a tin bucket
you can dig:
    silver
    gold
    quartz
Make a clay vessel, bake it in the campfire, then add it to the campfire again, you'll now be able to smelt alloys (bronze)

Make Bronze tools
you can dig:
    iron
Make a clay furnace, this can smelt iron

Make Iron tools
you can dig:
    everything
Make a Smeltery, this can smelt everything, including alloys, it is also upgradeable to reduce fuel usage and cook faster
Make a Cauldron to make Tea and Coffee for stat boosts

Make Mithril tools
mithril tools give more ore when digging blocks
Make a Forge for enchanting mithril ingots with gems, and making enchanted tools

Make Enchanted Mithril Tools
enchantments can:
    increase tool life
    give extra ores
    presmelt/precook ores and materials
    dig otherwise uncollectable blocks
