Asteroid Mining shack
« on: 08 September 2022, 03:11:58 »
Is it legal to do it with a 150 to satellite?  Or does someone have to make a real small base with quarters mining laser and maybe a hoist or manipulation arm ?

Why so big . 3 reasons
1 Cargo
2 more room for better quarters
3 hoist / tow cables can deal with more mass .

I'm thinking a slow 200-ton Small Craft might get you what you want a bit easier.  If you really want the Lift Hoist, install a Light Vehicle Cubicle...  8)

Very close... Small Lasers should be installed in pairs to maximize their Point Defense capability.

That's one perfectly reasonable way to do it, sure!  I usually go with the forward Wings and aft, but that works too...  :thumbsup:

Small Craft is way faster and way lower endrance than a 0.1 or 0.2 G ion drive Satellite with quarters for something that supposed to be in the field weeks or months to do prospecting.  I was enquiring if using the Satellite rules was legal instead of using the aerospace base rules ? I figure a bunch of prospecting Satellites gather materials and bring them to a base with a grav deck and small factories to process the raw ore

Shame the Argo was unique and has no rules it would fit the bill perfectly gravity deck and all
