Hello, today I am going to show you how to calculate the amount of materials required for excavating something. Weather it be a quarry or a large under ground city, you can estimate the amount of pick axes and even materials needed.

Step 1-Find the dimensions of what you want to mine.
Step 2-Find the volume (Base*Width*Hight)
Step 3-Divide the volume by the durability of the tool that you are using

Step 4-Round that number down, and divide that by two and three, respectively.
Step 5-Take the number that you got when you divided by two and divide it by eight, round up.
Step 6- You're done! The number that you got when you divided by 8 is the amount of wood that you need. The number that you get when you divided by 3 in step 5 is the amount of materials that are required.

Here's the formula

Let X equal the durability of material used

[(Base*Hight*Width)/X]/3= The amount of material needed

[(Base*Hight*Width)/X]/2/8=The amount of wood that you need

If you just want to find the number of pick axes, you can stop at [(Base*Hight*Width)/X]

Also, because shovels only require one resource per tool, the formula is the same as the one right above this text


Quote :
Here's an example. This is for the underground tree farm of Project Grymshire. I will be using stone tools.

(~225.89 Rounded up) 226*3
I will need 678 cobblestone

Since part of the formula is the same, I will use 226 (The number of actual tools needed)

Rounded up, I will need 15 Pieces of wood.

Hope this guide helps you with your planning! Or you could always just wing it and stop making minecraft so damn complicated...
