Just a quick, small mod that changes the mining time of most (hopefully all) objects in the game, with the exception of ores and trees. Wrote it because trying to remove a long (or even short) railroad track takes forever in vanilla. The mod also contains a blank sound file for when you mine bricks. Mining bricks super-fast made a really loud, annoying sound. Not sure about concrete, as I don't use it. If that's annoying also, let me know and I can replace it.
Thank you for this mod! Took me long enough to find. Getting rid of objects has been a pain, and I don't consider it a difficulty that adds to my enjoyment of the game like some people on other threads have been arguing (it seems to me that a lot of people here think that more effort = more fun).
However, I didn't want to increase the ore mining speed so much since I really did think that is a difficulty that increases fun of gameplay and isn't too hard to get around. Placing mining drills is easy, but researching robots and building roboports, then waiting for the robots to actually get to the stuff just so that I can delete a few structures? Nah. Especially when I'm just working on a small turret outpost and need to adjust some walls here and there. Freaking annoying otherwise. And don't get me started on DIGGING UP BRICK ROADS.
In any case, thanks a lot! Going to try it out as soon as I play again.
