Thanks to everyone who looked at this program. You are all awesome.
:Attention: The program now supports "Ore Quarry" functionality. Use "-oreQuarry true" to use it, or type "-help" to find out more
If you are having trouble in new versions of Computercraft:
Basically, there is a line in your CC config to "disable_lua51_features" Set that to false, because I use old environment functions and concepts.
A year ago, this program had a really BIG update. I basically rewrote the whole program from scratch. It is now much more efficient, modular, and is also easier to adjust from a coding standpoint.
As of version 3.5.0, the turtle also has oreQuarry support built in.
Note: If you don't know how to access any of the features: Type "quarry help" where "quarry" is whatever you named the program.
- Huge Sized Quarries possible, the only restriction is how much fuel you can stuff in the turtle (and chunk loading)
- Will always move to the proper position, will even attack mobs that get in the way!
- Great for digging out rooms underground
- Great for demolishing houses (use invert)
- Great for digging holes down to bedrock
- Deposits blocks into a chest when finished
- Checks often to see if inventory is full
- If inventory full, will go to a home chest to deposit blocks, then go right back where it was and continue mining
- Ender Chest enabled! Feel free to use them
- Session Persistence! Quarries will live through crashes and SSP
- Ore Quarry capable! Check the help section for instructions
- Turtle can mine down a certain number of blocks before starting. Good for getting to diamonds quickly.
- If it runs into bedrock, it will come back to start and tell you where bedrock was found.
- Automatically checks if you have fuel disabled
- Keeps a (somewhat) detailed record of what it mines
- Will log mining runs for posterity when done (If you want)
- While running, displays percent to completion and total blocks mined.
- Very modular, many different things can be changed by config and arguments
- Now can be fully automated from parent programs. Everything can be set from arguments
- Intelligently tells you settings you have changed
- Now has a companion program to place ladders all the way to the bottom.
- Now has a companion rednet program to give status updates when running. See below for current version
- Will intelligently request fuel before mining, so it won't run out half way through.
- Refuels quickly! You will fueled up and ready to go in no time!
- Supports GPS networks. Is able to accurately get its position every time (If wanted)
- Shell to control turtle
- Maybe start quarries through rednet
- None right now
Now that everything is configurable by argument, there is more to the use section that you should know.

This is where all the new and in-development features of my programs will be. Not all programs are guaranteed to actually run at the time you download them.
