Satillite for automatic, pilot free mining


Recommended Posts

Hello guys! (•ω•)/

Klei hide Satillite debris in their game files.

And this inspired one thing:

If we can make an orbital miner for space mining that won’t require you a pilot?

Orbiting a planet like a satillite does?

Oh my god.

You can send this satillite to nearby planets, as long you have enough fuel for it, to exploit resources on the planet without manpower.

It’s lightweight. So don’t worry about will it use lots of fuel.

How do you think?

Please comment! (•ω•)/

So how would you refuel it. It would have to land right? Or maybe it could be a limited use thing. You put it on top of the rocket (on top of the command module or maybe in a special satelite module that returns empty) and it starts orbiting the asteroid. You could see it flying by above the edge of the map once per cycle. Then you can send it space destinations and it drops a bit of mined stuff when it gets back. After 5-10 flights (maybe based on distance) it runs out of fuel and crashes, or maybe could get picked up by the rocket with the sattelite module and refuled.

I prefer indivdual launching, but launching with your huge rocket is also a good choice.
