Mobile Mining Mk2 (MM Mk2)
Download: Mobile Mining Mk2 <-- v1.05 Improved continuation of mining after unload. (kurush)





Enhances Mobile Mining in several ways:

    Arrow You can mine Nividium.
    Arrow Ships pause for shield recovery when low.
    Arrow Damaged ships go to nearby shipyard or homebase for repairs.
    Arrow Homebase can now be a military vessel (M0/1/2/7).
    Arrow Adds Wing Mining command to Trade menu. Command an entire wing to mine with a single setup.
    Arrow Continues to mine after unloading at Homebase.



Recommended

    Use with Marine Repairs v2 and Detector for terrific synergy! Detector finds Nividium rock clusters, MM Mk2 mines it, and Marine Repairs fixes your ships and trains your marines when ships get damaged during routine mining operations.



Guides

    For more information about Mobile Mining, see Bunny's classic Mobile Mining Guide. It was written for X3:Reunion, but is still correct for Terran Conflict or Albion Prelude.

    For a fully-automated approach, including selling your minerals, see: Mobile Mining Quick Setup Guide.



Compatibility

    Works for TC and AP. Should be compatible with anything that works with vanilla Mobile Mining.

    If you ask me whether it works with XRM, I'm going to tell you to punch yourself for asking. Smile



Requirements

    Mineral Scanner
    Ore Collector
    Special Command Software
    Navigation Command Software
    Ship that will carry Ore. (In vanilla X3R, TC, or AP, that means XL size cargo.)
    Optional: "Homebase" Capital Ship (TL/M7/M1/M2/M0) (Both Homebase and miners require Transporter Device for this option to work.)



How to Install Mobile Mining Mk2

    1) Install Mobile Mining Mk2 as an archive with the Plugin Manager, or copy the contents of the scripts folder into your addon\scripts folder (AP) or scripts folder (TC). If this is your first time, see LV's tutorial: Installing Scripts & Mods

    Note: You do not need to install the scripts.uninstall folder. It contains the vanilla mobile mining scripts, in case you want to uninstall Mobile Mining Mk2.


How to Use Mobile Mining Mk2

    1) On a ship that meets the above Requirements, open the Special Menu. Then choose "Mine Minerals... [Mine.S]"
    2) Select the mineral that you want the miner to mine.
    3) Optional: If the miners are homebased to a TL that is in-sector, then they will offload their minerals when full, then return to mining. That way, you can have a single TS with multiple miners (Falcon Haulers are excellent, but a TS will do). Then a CLS2 can transfer from the TL to a sales location.
    4) Profit.



Tips

    I know that the guides all recommend TS's as miners. I don't know where that idea came from, but it is not the best, especially if the miners will be working In-Sector with the player. TS's have weak shields, poor maneuverability, and their guns are on the tail.

    Miners should have a TL (or other capital ship) in the same sector to offload minerals. So the cargo capacity of the miner ships is not so important.

    A better choice would be an XL-capable fighter (Falcon Hauler) or an M6.

    If you do use a TS, the best chioces are the new TS+ ships (Drake, Sturgeon, Snotra, Tern, Hayabusa) or Mistrals (Regular and SF) for their stronger shields and front turrets.

    Mobile Drilling System is neither required nor desired. Just have a few hornets on the player ship for initial asteroid-busting. After that, mosquitoes or any fast gun will break up smaller junks.

At last, a simple mobile mining script, I'll try it when I get time.

Trying version 1.1 now (Mobile_Mining_Mk2_1.01_BW.zip) and for some reason my Drake just stops instead of mining Nividium. First, it says "Flying to position" and then it switches to "None". I tried KE and Perpertual Sin and in both sectors it just stops. I mined KE with an earlier version of the script, then something happened and Nividium disappeared from the mining options. I found my Drake mining Ore in KE instead of NV. After upgrade no luck mining anything. I'll try blasting one of the big NV roids next to check if that gets mined.

I Installed via cycrow's plugin manager "Install Archive" Option. As long as there are broken up Niv roids available the mine minerals command works. Not tried it OOS yet though.

This looks like a great script! Can't wait to try it! Thanks for your contribution. Just one question though; do the minerals have to be in the form of rocks (the actual collectable wares) or will the miner ship actively break up fragments (assuming the player blew up a 'roid) into rocks?

The main difference between the "Collect Rocks" and "Mine Minerals" commands is that "Mine Minerals" will break rocks into smaller chunks (assuming that the miner ship has a laser weapon in a turret -- it does not have to be a Mobile Drilling System).

Mobile Mining Mk2 is an enhancement of "Mine Minerals". So, yes, it will break up rocks into smaller rocks.

Asteroids large enough to be on the sector map must first be broken with a Hornet missile (or similar damage from another weapon -- a Hornet's blast is about 200,000 damage points). Only the player (or a Prospector) can break up asteroids.

Okay, I have never actually used collect rocks or mine minerals, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I assumed that large asteroids had to be broken up first by the player. Sounds awesome, thanks.

Thanks for the fix! It works now, but apparently I mined KE clean of Nividium. They finally fixed infinite mobile mining, time to buy some Hornets Twisted Evil

Excellent! I was hoping so. A lot of people downloaded the first day, and only a few have downloaded the fix (*sigh*). The rest were probably waiting for a success report, so thank you for that. Smile

Yep. Don't forget there are unlimited Nividium asteroids in Undefined Space.

I take a TL with a bunch of Falcon Hauler miners (and one fast scout for scanning asteroids) on my trips into Undefined Space.

So, this is why you implemented that shield management. I only ever mined something OOS and was thinking "why do you need to wait for shields to recharge? they never drop... Confused " Laughing Perpetual Sin is called so for a reason...
