    • I mine 2 high and then skip two blocks left of right so I can see every block and you save icing to go back and get more picks, but god damn it I hate finding so much red stone and nothing else

    • Y’all saying what extra stuff you dig out, a 2x1 is the most efficient, for every block you mine you expose 4 more

    • I hate to admit it but I've thought of ending it all a lot recently, but I'm too afraid to as most of us on here can probably relate to. This picture gave me a little bit of hope that there are still diamonds at the end of my tunnel. Most likely just gonna be sand though lol

    • Me and my homies playing actual strip mining: so we all strip mine at level 11 and basically any time someone finds diamonds, they gotta chose someone to take off an artical of clothing and once you have no more clothes left you lose.

    • Branch mining is the best. Start with a long hallway, size is your choice, I usually go with 3x3. Then you mine 1x3 every third block, so you have two blocks in between each branch so you don’t miss anything.

    • It is unwise just to strip mine for diamonds. You have to find a surface cave and explore as much as you can. Once that’s done if it doesn’t bring you down deep enough, dig straight down with a second straight down mine right next to you. Dig as far down on the side you aren’t on as you can to make
