|Modpacks|| Resonant Rise|
You do not have to craft any items to have benefit from the veinminer mod. On most modpacks the veinminer ability is, by default, set to the crouch or Shift key. Upon any item you can break with your hand ex. dirt, wood, sand, etc. will not require you to have a tool in hand, but an item (nothing specific) will have to be in your hand. Respectively veinmining stone, cobblestone, ores, etc. will require a pickaxe. Also (on most modpacks) by default veinmining will depreciate your hunger and the durability of the tool,if a tool is used.
Mining Tips: Now that you don't need iron and diamond picks to mine faster like in vanilla you can simply make a ton of stone picks and veinmine a tunnel. But try to place a cobble bridge through the middle so as to not mine the ground below you and fall to your death.
