seach for or highlight ores in the map view

Post by nosports » Sat Jan 05, 2019 1:26 pm

TL;DR
highligt or seach for ores in the map view like search in item-browser
(example if i want to see all Coal-ores in the map view, highlight all ore-fields)

What ?
just like in the headline
Why ?
when having many ores, especially by some mods its diffuciult to find a desired ore-field, because of no or not much differences in the coloring of the ore-fields

Good idea, I like that too especially when the map gets very big.
"Artillery laser cannon shotgun uranium explosive turret tanks" would be the greatest thing ever.

I agree. Even when playing with a small amount of ores in vanilla, I often have trouble distinguishing ore fields from terrain.

When using Bob's Mods, which introduces a large number of different ores, it becomes a lot of work to find a certain type of ore.
