    Ship Builds & Load Outs Ships Deep Space Miner

    My concept is a ship suitable for long-distance travel, that can mine out in the black. My ideas for this ship are mining tritium to help rescue carriers, visiting and working at the Azura Initiative, and possibly future CGs. Should I go for a modified explorer with a AspX or Phantom? Go...

    No ARX for mining gameplay?

    I thought that by logging in and playing the game I would earn a small amount of arx, but in 2 weeks of mining with over 1000 limpets spent I haven't gotten more than a couple, and that was for the few jumps I did going between mining spots. Is this an oversight? Miners deserve arx too ✌️

    Sub-surface mining... behaving unexpectedly (or just plain broken?)

    I'm not a regular sub-surface miner but decided to do some out in unpopulated space around 3.5 kly from Sol. I've been using a ring with a single tritium hotspot and on the most recent visit I dropped fairly close to the centre (less than 10% of the hotspot diameter away, or around 600 km). I've...

    General Refinery + Mining Multi-Limpet Controller

    Why are these two modules not combined ? Are there people who use THIS separately ? This will be a new module for mining without removing the old modules. Like a docking computer and improved docking computer. If someone doesn't like it, no one is forcing them to use it. Just like the...

    Make ressource chunk not clip through asteroid

    I don't know why they didn't fix the collection limpet mechanism. They are stupid AF. If a chunk is "inside" an asteroide they will all go for it, one after another, granting us with the nice "collection failed". Just make the ressource chunk able to interact physically with asteroid instead of...

    Hello! I’m back again. I’ve got a fresh new profile, with updated info and all that jazz. I didn’t expect anyone to see my recent posts, so I figured I’d say hi rather than posting my links and letting my account stay a husk. Today’s article is something I’m actually pretty unfamiliar with -...

    Are Hotspots still Hot?

    Is it just me or have the hot spots recently been not so hot. Meaning that there are deep core asteroids but not necessarily matching the hotspot mineral. Lately I have been getting a lot of minerals other than what the hotpot is for. Most recently in a Musgravite hotspot with the...

    Ship Detection of Surface Minerals

    I can live with the new way that the surface scanner works and doesn't provide specific locations for surface mineral mining. However, I think to offset this our ships should come with the ability to detect mining objects on the ground so we can cover area more quickly, landing only to hop into...

    Extracting Material from Asteroids

    Noob question. just started mining and starting to getting the hang of it, on the surface as well in flight. As for the last, when i’m mining an asteroid sometimes materials show up on the surface of the asteroid (i.e. nickel, chromium, iron, etc.) My question, how do i collect them? Collector...

    General Asteroid Mining on foot please! Approved by B.Willis

    That would be awesome if we'll able to depart from a ship in a space suit, land on an asteroid with a powerful charge, place it in a specific weak spot, then run away fast to the ship and watch how it's exploded (should be more awesome than the seismic charges). It can be either the same core...

    Tritium availability for solo Carrier operators, who do not want to spend weeks mining.

    Can we have some dedicated stations out there, in the bubble and in Colonia, that are always stocked with Tritium for sale, even if you up the price, double the galactic average, even triple? I recently headed back to populated space after an excursion into the black with my carrier, Tritium...

    Newcomer / Intro Questions about mining

    So, my refinery (I think 3A, maybe 4? - it has 7 slots) works very slowly at times. The ore is at 100% and it just won't refine, sometimes for a pretty long time, while my drones bore themselves to death - literally. Also, When I liberate an extra slot for an ore I'm mining at high speed...

    Mining Q: hot spots and resource extraction area. What are the #% Values I should be finding?

    Just started mining stuff this past week and a bit. Wondering what the numbers should officially be, for each type hotspot and material type. And hotspot with resource extraction area and different lvl values. Edit:Found this, not exactly what I was looking for but someone may find it useful.

    Question about shared asteroid mining

    Do multiple ships in the same instance who are not in a wing generate fragments from the same asteroid from independent pools or from a collective pool? e.g: One miner laser mines an asteroid and generates 25 fragments. Two miners wing up and both laser the same asteroid: each miner generates...

    Refinery/Mining Help

    My mate and I are doing platinum mining in Pythons. He is using a 4A Refinery (10 bins) and 6 collector limpets. His bins seem to take much longer to process than mine, and as a result somehow all 10 bins are continuosly filling up to 100%. Then the second weird thing happens, his collector...

    mining is no longer worthwhile?

    Suggestions

    1. Mining drones should last until scooped again 2. Mining drones should not break on asteroids 3. Mining drones should use launcher space, not cargo space 4. Deep mining with rockets should be easer - ie. rockets unlimited, or change mechanics. That would give mining some space to live. Eve...

    Making the mining more difficult (but without simply decreasing profit)

    Hi, I was thinking about the patch on mining nerf (which is still quite ok imo) recently. I would like to have your opinion about the fact that mining should not be less "profitable" but instead, more difficult. It is actually quite easy to be alone to mine, without pirate or whatever. I think...
