Miner UPSGrade

by Kingdud
Yet another big miner. The goal was to preserve the mining rate, pollution, and energy usage of 25 beaconed (8-per) miners crammed into a single monolithic building. Arguments can be made that it's slightly faster, searches too large an area for ore, etc, but the reality is, it's good enough. This mod, as with most of my other mods, exists to save UPS via reduced entity count while being as non-cheaty as possible.

Creates a miner equivalent to 25 beaconed (8-per) normal electric mining drills in terms of energy use, output, pollution, etc. The only purpose of this mod is to improve UPS by having the game simulate a single entity instead of 25 smaller ones (more than that, actually, due to also removing belt/chest, beacons, power poles, and other misc items).
