Planet bulding. Mining for profit.
« on: 14 November 2019, 21:39:09 »
Is their anyplace that gives a table or rules for minerals on a planet or asteroid. Some places are mined for rare minerals. If you are looking to set up mining operations in a system how to determine if rare minerals are available to make it worth mining. In Campaign Operations it tells you if you have basic minerals to build your planet but how about rare ones to mine to make it worth while.

No, BT hasn't produced rules for mining for profit, particularly since interstellar mining operations are dubiously profitable at best.
