About miner physics
« on: November 21, 2017, 09:07:40 PM »
Even if the ground is destructable the miner at certain places (kind of seam places that have a rather steep angle I think) only starts to mine and then stops. This is probably intended to a certain degree but it is not always obvious where this will happen I think.
I attached a replay to demonstrate that (the situation is at the very end of the replay.)

The miner falls when the slope is steeper than the 2:1 slope she would produce. There is minimal leeway: You can mine over a 2:1 builder's bridge that is rougher than the hi-res 2:1 miner slope, but overall it's not much.

I agree how the early miner cancelling is strange. I could allow extra leeway on the first swing, but that's special-casing, I'd like to avoid that. Hmm.

If nobody else has a problem with it I can live with that.
It just seemed a particularly obscure case to me; I was quite surprised that it didn't work out although I generally know that it can happen.
