Excavation Mod 1.17.1/1.16.5 allows players to experience something completely new when it comes to mining and gathering resource. Normally, to destroy a block of ores, all players could do is holding left-click until it worns out. However, with the implementaton of Excavation, players can perform different mining action to sacrifice the tool’s durability to efficiency. This choice allows players to make a decision, therefore everytime they go down on mining, they wouldn’t feel like they are doing a chore, but instead going into another adventure underground. Excavation implementation might be little, but it is surely underestimated by many players with how much it instils life into the game.
