I tried the digital miner in many locations in the beneath, no luck. Same with the end. When I said created dimensions, I was talking about dimensions created with rftools. Sorry if that wasn't clear. Can not use the laser from industrial foregoing either since dimensional ore is not listed in its config. Looks like i will be waiting potentially a few days before having dimensional shards. I just wish I had known a lot earlier that getting the tier 6 void miner was pretty much mandatory. Can't even use preferred lenses with the void miner to increase the chance of getting the materials needed to upgrade the void miner since the configs use non-existent lenses. Oh well, I'll get them eventually.
Edit: Right after posting this, I remembered we have Acceleration wands. And I have lots of xp. And the wand works on the void miner. Now I just need to increase the amount of power available to the void miner.
Am I missing something or is the only way to get Dimensional Shards, initially, is to make a Tier 6 Void Ore Miner or grinding end stone which has a very very small chance and cannot be done with compressed end stone? It looks like all created dimensions are void dimensions. (Playing MC 1.12 version)
