What about making quarry it's own forage subtype? Remove them from the regular 'forage stone' list.

Can you find obsidian and glass like you can basalt, sandstone and other things? If so, my next PC is going to be fucking rich.

This is a very good idea.

You can forage glass and obsidian via forage stone. Still time consuming, it's not exactly a summon glass spell.

Man I love the shit out of this change, seriously. Miner character for 2016 incoming.

I like it so far, but my one complaint about mining seems to still be there.

This would be better, and you would reduce on the clutter of all the rest of the stones you could potentially find.

Unless find stone for quarried or whatever works.

So, necro'ing this a bit. What keyword works so you can try to just get these instead of the massive rock spam?

'forage stone for obsidian' ? When that doesn't work for a long time, I can't tell if I have the keyword wrong ('forage stone for deposit?') or if it's the wrong room, or if it's just rare, etc.

I think the correct keyword is quarry or quarried, yes.

Note that this will not actually help find the quarried stone faster, but it will prevent you from picking up rocks you don't want.

The right keyword is "quarried"

You could also search specifically for types of stone by using "jasper" "basalt" "obsidian" etc.
