Based on an idea by pagroove in this topic: "Could there be a pylon mounted missile (mining machine) that locks on a large asteroid. Then flies to it. Then starts up breaking it into boulders and splinters. When it's ready the machine wraps all the splinters up automatically and presents itself to you as a scoopable container with all the minerals/ore or gold inside?"

  • The basic equipment is the miner pod.
  • The extra miner pods are added to the launcher.
  • The miner rock breaker also increases the productivity.


  • Special thanks to Thargoid for allowing me to borrow bits from his license file.

  • Also thanks to Eric Walch for guiding me in correcting the AIs.
