Mining robots and multiolonies suggestions

Postby Kambalo » Thu May 26, 2016 1:33 pm

I dont know what you think but I would love to see ships (the big ones) which are hard to maneuver to have the ability of having small mining robot ships that they can send out to harvest ores automatically or if you choose you can pilot one of them.

The other suggestion is the possibility of having more than one colony in a planet, since there are a lot of abandoned colonies, let the planets be used by more than 1 player.

A planet is not limited to a single colony. They are actually quite large to hold many colonies.

I am not sure that JAM would be in favour of automated mining. He has made it clear that, for the most part, he wants the players to do the work. However, this is close to what I had envisioned using the Carrier for. The Carrier would transport other players in their smaller ships to a suitable asteroid field and there they could mine the asteroids and e-jump back with their load. An improvement would be if they could actually sell their load to the owner of the Carrier: transferring the cargo to the carrier. This could be of great benefit to both new players and the Carrier owner in need of resources.
