Diamonds In Smp2

  1. can someone please tell me where the bet place to look for diamonds/gold ore is on smp2. I am sick of ahving to buy them i need to start mining them for myself. Co-ordinates or directions would be much appreciated.:cool:
  2. It is the same everywhere. Just go to level 12, that is the most common layer where Diamonds are found. Xxxx.
  3. I'm not sure that question really has a definite answer. Location of diamonds depends entirely on the world seed, but here are the general rules about diamond ore:
    • Diamond only appears in the bottom 17 layers of the map.
    • Diamond ore occurs in roughly 0.0846% of stone from levels 2-17.
    • There is an average of 3.097 diamond ore per chunk.
    • It is a good idea to dig around a diamond block before mining it to ensure that the gem won't fall into a cave, lava, etc. (This is especially necessary if you happened to stumble upon a lava lake nearby)
    • It is recommended to use a pickaxe with the fortune enchantment when mining diamond. This can yield up to 4 diamonds per ore block (with Fortune III).
    • There is an average of 1 vein of Diamond Ore per chunk.
