12/ Moving On (Mine Depletion)

Mining can affect the land, damaging it. When a mine is depleted there is a 33% risk that the land is damaged and is transformed in either grass, rock, crater, or desert.

From the mining rules page,

Is this implemented? If so, does the equation run per deposit or mine on the deposit?



Fights like Hurricane, Killing, Ecstasy, Insane.

From what Mikel and Sel were discussing earlier, it's not currently working, and if reimplemented, it may be redesigned a little.

I'm glad you found that on the rules, because I definitely couldn't when I was looking for it.

Anyway, not implemented and likely to be rethought to make more sense (like not randomly spawning grassland from desert) if re-added.

Like Grassland > Desert or Cave > Crater, Mikel?

There's still a city, Paul. No spawns.
Besides, I'm fairly sure it would be a PITA to code something along the lines of remembering that terrain tile was subject to change due to mine depletion.

We've had a terrain change previously on mine depletion, on a wholly rock planet (10x10) and it changed to pristine grasslands.

This was 5-6 years ago though, so my memory is hazy if this was reported as a bug at the time and whether if the code was stopped or not.
