Mining Ship, sort of
« on: February 26, 2016, 11:24:11 AM »
So... I forget if others have said this, but I've found a way to make the game a bit more like Eve Online. I basically set my drayman with a cargo scoop at velocity 10 and just have it plow through an asteroid field while I do other things on the computer. It's kind of silly but I think it's the only way you reliably can automatically get resources as if you were using a mining ship. Now if only there was a way to increase the reliability of getting minerals...

Ha! That's a new one.

Sounds like some kind of device should be installed to allow this. In Frontier (sorry to nag about this) there was some Mining laser, I think. Blowing up rocks with that produced a lot of minerals you could scoop up, I think. Although memory is hazy.
