I have a world on Minecraft Java, and I feel like the only thing I'm ever doing is mining for diamonds....I feel like there must be some strategy out there I'm missing or something, because i just Can't find them at a productive rate. I used to play Bedrock and I always found it easier to just strip mined at Y=10 or Y=11. I feel like this method is very good on Bedrock but much less productive on Java.
My strip mining consists of:
- Mining at y=10 or y=11
- Making mines 3 blocks apart
- Using F3 menu to see what is under lava
I have tried the clay trick, using clay, facing Z, 8 block out, etc. etc.
Insofar this method does not work in 1.17.1, the version this world was created in. Please I need some help, because I need those diamonds.
