[Suggestion] Add flippable robo-miners

Recommended Posts

The robo-miner is already very nice, but there are some scenarios, where it lacks certain comfort.

Example 1: when mining the meteroids from the top of your base, you either have to place them on the ground, where they will overheat or at a ceiling, which will be loaded with piles of meteors that you cannot mine easily.

Example 2: when mining meteors from a rocket silo, they will eventually be overheated by the rockets thrusters, whenever there is a rocket start.

 

Suggested improvement: It would be very convenient to add another higher tech of the robo-miner or mount-tech to place the robo-miner on. It would be 2 tiles of wall with a robominer on one side (2x2) and a blocked space on the other side (2x2). With an automation port you can then flip the robot to the other side of the wall.

This would allow us to create cleaner constructs and have an better destinction between the work area and the cooling area of the robot.

Maybe there are even other usages for a flippable wall-mount. And finally, it might even look oni-funny.;)

Another idea would be to allow robominers to mine through open doors. That would still not fix all my problems, but might be a more in-universe approach.
