I am currently looking for new miners to join my mining operation in the wilderness. As a miner, you would be able to:Access the largest mine on EMC with over 164km of tunnel.Receive personal training in the use of all systems, effective mining techniques (which picks to use, lava handling, different techniques). Training takes about an hour.Receive all the pickaxes you need to mine effectively (one set of Efficiency IV, Silk Touch, and Fortune III), plus free armour, tools, food, etc...Receive regular payments at guaranteed rates without having to search for a mall, wait for anyone to buy your stuff, or even go to town. I was able to earn over 10k in my first hour with Fortune 3, Silk Touch, and Efficiency IV. Rates for materials like obsidian can go even higher (I average 20-30k/hr)Keep mining continuously. Simply stash your stuff in a minecart, submit a report, and mine the next tunnel.Access stocked chests in halls (every 250 meters) with torches, logs, minecarts, chests, and food. As a miner, you are free to take whatever supplies you need for mining.Use beds, enchanting tables, water sources, ovens (special system for instant smelting/XP), and anvils easily accessible from every station. No need to leave the mine. You can easily enchant or repair your pickaxes as you mine.Use the portal network for quick access through the entire mine.Explore the custom live map featuring all tunnels and stations built to date. (There is presently well over 164km of mine tunnels, and expansion continues.)Be safe. Use regularly spaced beds to ensure you can always recover your stuff easily. All tunnels are kept level, lit, and lava-free. Each hallway has doors to every mine to prevent mobs from entering. Dying is a horribly inefficient way to make money.Compete with other miners for ranks and highscores. Daily and weekly rankings.Receive statistics on each run to help improve efficiency.Attend group mining events. Mine with other miners to get Haste benefits, learn even faster mining techniques, or for more fun.In order to mitigate theft and damage, train new miners, and cover the cost of maintaining the mines and providing all the supplies and materials, I charge a 14k deposit which covers everything! You can easily make it back in the first 2-4 hours of training/mining. This also prevents someone from coming out and stealing or vandalizing the mine, and if they do decide to do that, then they've already paid money that can be used to replace items and repair it once their account is banned. (We have only had one major incident so far.) Should you die in lava, replacement pickaxes are available for 9k. All other supplies and tools are replaced free of charge.I am looking for honest, hardworking, independent, courteous, and monetarily-motivated individuals who wish to make a fortune. I will provide training. The following are assets (meaning helpful but not required):Experience with Minecraft Forge and installing mods. AutoSwitch is incredibly useful and will save you loads of time (=more rupees) and also save your life.Basic experience with AutoSwitch configuration.Armour already. Preferably diamond. I have lots of armour in the mines if you don't have any.Past mining experience.Been on EMC longer.Note: AutoSwitch is an approved mod, however it does not work with 1.9 or 1.10 presently, so it is not listed on EMC wiki. It's use is not required, only very helpful to mine more efficiently.Responsibilities include:Mining sections from start to finish in a straight line, including the obsidian (which does make lots of rupees).Exploring and securing caves up to height ~24.Filling in holes in the mine with cobble or free dirt:To ensure it is left level for fast movement. (No need to jump or move around obstacles if traversing the tunnel normally.)To ensure there are no pits that a miner can fall in and be stuck when trying to recover their stuff after dying. (ie no jumps required > 1 block)To ensure no dark areas where mobs spawn and ambush unsuspecting miners later.Plugging all nearby water and lava that interferes with getting around.All passages must be left Level, Lit, and Lava-free.Not dying on a regular basis. (Preferably at all.)Accurate online reporting of items which are placed in the minecart.The mine is on SMP1. It is actually ideal if you are on another SMP, because once you are in the mine you can log into SMP1 anytime you need rupees and not have to travel back/forth to town. If you are on SMP1, you must be free/willing to spend considerable time in the wild, or you must have an alternate account which you can use to mine. If you have any questions or suggestions please post below.
