I bought Mercury and equipped it with MDS, Ore Collector, Special command software, Mineral scanner.

I hit 'y' and the MDS had "install" next to it. I clicked "install" and it took me to the rear turret of my Mercury. I couldn't install it nor can I figure out if there is another way to use it.

Help please!

Thanks,

Choosing a Mining Ship

There are only a handful of ships that are capable of mobile mining. Choosing the right ship is up to you.

Hi Shrap
Your mercury can't use a mds.
Select the ship,go to details, scroll down and look at lasernames.
There you see wat lasers the ship can use,and in witch place.

Unfortunately, that guide is for X2 only. It doesn't apply to X3, since the mechanics are a bit different, and the ship classes are totally different. Check the Ultimate Guide sticky at the top of the forum for current mining guides for X3. The one you need is Bunny's Mobile Mining Guide for X3. Happy mining. Smile
