The OV Scanner (Ore Value Scanner) is the improved version of the OD Scanner. This device not only calculates how much ore there is in the scanned area, but outputs its value based on how valuable the ores are. The OV Scanner can also be inserted into a Miner to increase the Miner's mining area from 5x5 to 9x9.

Usage[edit]

The OV Scanner is operated by activating it in a Hotbar slot and right clicking with it. The Scanner scans all blocks in a 9x9 square around the player. It evaluates all the blocks below player's position. Every valuable resource block is then added to the total value of the area. This chart shows the default value list:

Resource Value
Coal Ore 1
Xychorium Ore 1
Quartz Crystal 1
Monazit Ore 1
Cinnabar Ore 1
Copper Ore 2
Tin Ore 2
Gold Ore 3
Redstone Ore 3
Lapis Lazuli Ore 3
Iron Ore 4
Uranium Ore 4
Emerald Ore 5
Diamond Ore 5

This list can be customized in the .minecraft/config/IC2.cfg file on the line starting with valuableOres=. Other blocks, including blocks from other mods can be added to the comma separated list of blocks using this pattern: blockID-Damage:ScannerValue, ; when the damage value is not specified all possible values match.

The values are totaled, and the total ore value in an area is then calculated according to the following formula:

ValueOfArea = 1000*TotalValue/TotalBlocksScanned, where TotalValue is the sum of all the values for the detected resources, and TotalBlocksScanned is the total number of blocks below the player. In this case, it is equal to 81*ScanHeight. The result is rounded down to the nearest integer and output on player's screen.

In recent versions of IC2 scanner displays a list of ores in 25x25x24 box around player.

OV Scanner has no known uses in crafting.

Recharging[edit]

Every usage drains 250 EU, and with the total storage of 10 000 EU, this means that the OV Scanner can be used 40 times before having to be recharged. It can be charged using any MV or higher energy storage unit, or a MV-compatible charging armor piece, such as the Lappack or Adv.Batpack. Unlike other electrical items, it is also recharged when placed inside a Miner.
