Can't mine asteroids
« on: March 12, 2014, 02:16:27 AM »
I cannot mine asteroids. I was playing a multiplayer game with my friend, and he was able to mine asteroids without a problem. I became so frustrated, I had him send me a screenshot of his setup, and I built it precisely how he did, but still no luck. I had all the necessary sub-systems on the ship, and when it approached the asteroid, it would hit it with the mining lasers, but that's it. I tried googling this issue and I seem to be the first human being to have ever had this issue, because I could find nothing related to this problem. What am I doing wrong?

I'm going to start a single player game in a bit to see if I experience the same problem, will report back when I have results

Edit: Okay, so I did the same things as in the multiplayer game, and no problems at all. What could be the problem? Why can I mine asteroids in singleplayer but not multiplayer?

It is maybe related with the AI of your ship? Could you post your design there : http://starruler.blind-mind.com/designs

Also, this is a good design for a mining with integrated refinery drone: http://starruler.blind-mind.com/designs/view/215

It seems only the host can mine asteroids, I was just in a game where my friend couldn't mine anything.
