Mining Section

From SotS

The contents of this page were introduced in the original Sword of the Stars.

Summary

The resources of unpopulated planets can be mined and transported to another planet, where they can provided a boost in production and overall resources. As expected, these ore carriers are very slow.

This mission section is used to strip an uninhabited system of resources quickly and efficiently. Unfortunately, it results in a large amount of Overharvesting, resulting in a drop in the long-term output ability of the target system. The capacity of a mining section varies depending upon the race that built it but around 500 resource units is a good approximation.

The mining rate can be increased by researching Mega-Strip Mining.
