- patch 4 February 2019 (Update):
- Mining Red/Crystal Sandstone now has maximum stamina and does not reduce your stamina, so that your mining rate will not steadily reduce while emptying it. It, therefore, does not count toward the My Sick Four Tick Trick achievement to maintain nearly maximum stamina.
- ninja 23 October 2017 (Update):
- Red sandstone is now unaffected by the furnace perk when mining with an augmented pickaxe.
