    Ressource chunks "vacuum cleaner" - or the issue with tech height and collectors

    Being quite fond of Geotech, one issue you run into when using their tech is that due to their large size collectors have some issues getting ressource chunks away from the ground. Ressources that you drive over are basically completly unable to be retreived because even if the tractor...

    [0.7.8.3] Feedback - Auto-miner catchup speed nerf unhelpful (+ alternatives)

    First of all, I've timed the new speed at about 6 seconds, not the 10 stated in the patch notes (lies!;)): This represents a massive nerf to mining and manual resource collection, which was already borderline pointless. When you can just set up an Erudite selling base and buy the rest of...

    Articulated mining tools

    Hello, During my mining period, I face the problem to have some ore veins unreachable for my mining tools. I think It could be really great to have articulated mining tools, able to move a bit to reach these veins/rocks, because some time it is a mater of 5 centimeters :( sincerely, Red
