Supports hold up the mine's ceiling to prevent cave-ins.
Note: Mined tiles will still show dust animation (see Mining page) when under the radius of the support, to warn of cave-in tiles, but cave-ins won't occur under support.

Quoted from Loftar:

<SuperDaddy> Does it count if the radius is touching part of the tile?
<loftar> Well, to be precise, it needs to touch the exact center of the tile.

This means tiles covered by the support radius just slightly aren't supported.


Caution: Destroying a mine support underground will immediately cause a cave-in to occur, even if all tiles are supported by other supports.

Support Radius

The squares around the support that are safe to mine.

All tiles marked in blue are safe to mine. Mining a tile outside of the blue area may cause a cave-in. This structure will support mining within a 9 tile radius.




Note: Mine supports can be built on the surface and in houses; however, serve no function
