In order to mine, all you have to do is fill in 2 extra options. So make your path
where you want to mine/forest/etc and when you get to the "Time/Range to Kill"
tab in the patrol options, set the "Max Range to find nodes"
value to the
distance you would like to look for them. The value for nodes is totally
independant from "Max Range to find mobs", so if you only want to find mobs
near your patrol path set it to a small number. I have set mob range to 25 since I
want to hunt as well as mine, but I want to find mines a long way from my patrol
path so I don't miss any.
