    resource deposits and mining extractor

    Agree. Let user specify resource to extract. This is especially annoying because the user might not even be able to see the underground resource that the extractor insists on mining.
  2. The forum does not let me delete this thread. I dug way down and found the other resource. I tried repositioning the extractor to many spots around the site, but it insists on extracting the resource I DON'T want. So, the auto extractor would benefit from user being able to specified the desired resource.
  3. Summary: Auto Extractor yielding resource stacks of a type that is not present. Description: Auto Extractor had been set up at Site A, yielding ammonium. That job completed. The extractor was packaged and moved into storage at base. Later that packaged extractor was move to Site B, unpackaged and set up on a deposit of pure graphite. It yielded stacks of ammonium, even though zero ammonium is present there.

    Collecting Soil QUickly

    Mio, Thanks so much. The screenshot helped a lot. This setup is working for me. Took some practice, especially aiming up/down. I made somewhat of a mess in the learning process. Now, what do I do with all the resulting resin/compound/organic? It's too much! I can print stuff with it and chuck it in the shredder. Any other ideas? Thanks, Matt

    Thanks. Interesting. I've also been using a mountain, but collecting with terrain tool. Screenshot of "nicely drilling horizontal" would be helpful.

    Collecting Soil QUickly

    What is the fastest way to collect soil? Terrain tool with boost and wide mod? Carry a bunch of canisters? What about Medium Canister on a rover with drill? Any tips for making that work well? How do you keep the rover from heading downward? Video of that would be awesome.
