Rampen Drills

There are drills on the server now!
Here is a guide to tell you everything you need to know.

What you'll need
1 Diamond Block (9 Diamonds in a Crafting Table = 1 Diamond Block)
2 Iron Blocks (9 Iron Ingots in a Crafting Table = 1 Iron Block)
1 Furnace
1 Single Chest
Lots and lots and lots and LOTS of Coal (Fuel)
*OPTIONAL* Torches (to light up behind the drill)

You will need to assemble the drill with the above blocks.
There is an example drill built just outside of Spawn, feel free to go and have a look.

Written example -                   
Iron block - Furnace - Iron block
A chest ON TOP of the Furnace
Diamond block BEHIND the chest (the chest open side needs to be facing you)

Quick Tips
In order for the drill to work you'll need a Drill tool, to get one of these, use the command /drill tool
To start or stop the drill click on the drill bit (Diamond Block) with the tool selected, you will get a message that says it will start or stop moving.
There MUST be coal in the furnace for the drill to function (watch the coal levels, it burns fast!)
The drill mines a 3x3 square with the Diamond Block being the middle square.
You do get Mining XP and money if you have a job as a Miner.
The chest fills up fast, keep an eye on that and empty it when required
Lockette signs will NOT move with the Drill, your chest is NOT protected from other players.
You cannot use a double chest, the second chest will just fall off when the drill moves
Other players cannot break your drill
Other players cannot start or stop your drill
Strictly one drill per player (you can only activate one at a time per player)

The drill stops:-
When there is a gap in front of it
When it comes across lava in the blocks directly in front of it
When the player who owns it goes too far away from it (by my testing - 35 blocks away)
When the chest is full

If you have any issues or questions, please feel free to contact BeMyEscape in game.

Happy drill mining!
