Mining Task.png

Mines are a type of task which instructs workers to create open sky mines. Their main purpose is for gathering stone, blue crystals and orange crystals, but they can also be used for digging vertical shafts that branch out into tunnels.

Survival mode[]

In survival mode the mining and tunneling tasks are unavailable. Instead the map has predefined mines which workers can be assigned to. These mines are not dug by Bricktrons the way normal mines are. Workers simply walk into the mine, then emerge a sort time later with carrying stones or crystals.


Setup commands[]

The commands may only be used when initially placing the mine and may become unavailable once work on the mine has been started.


Rotate Stairs
This command rotates the mine's stairs between their possible positions. Which positions are allow may be limited by the terrain. Allowed positions are indicated by the yellow squares outside the corners of the mine task, while the current position is highlighted blue.
