[1.8.1 FIXED] Pickaxes (and break boulder spell) work diagonally, shovels do not

Seems unclear which one is a bug, but it feels inconsistent.

Smart play is to always mine diagonally if able - the danger of exposing yourself to an unknown enemy on the other side of a boulder can be avoided. But if intended, seems odd that we are not able to use shovels diagonally (and presumably the unearth treasure spell as well, but I did not test it).

Neither were originally intended to be allowed diagonally. A bug allowed some abilities to be used adjacent diagonally when they were not supposed to.

I've fixed the bug but also made it so that both Shovel and Pickaxe can now be used diagonally. As you mentioned it allows some smart tactics like breaking boulders outside line of sight. Such smart thinking should be rewarded :)
