Bunthius (Star Atlas CPO), confirmed that solo ship mining, is going to be a post v1.0 rollout. Mining structures are going to be the way to extract mined resources. Mining ships are being spec’d out as of this writing(Oct ’21) for a “much later delivery and will be a specialised ship. Opod [VZUZ] is not a mining ship“. He also confirmed that more details will be coming at a later stage.
A short and sweet issue this week, as news and reveals from the team have quieted down a bit. Of course, we’re getting close to the big Community Week event (Feb 26 – March 1), and it’s widely expected that there will be some interesting announcements (if not actual releases) during that week! What we do have for this week is a new JNavigating Star Atlas episode, Joni nominations to vote on, and more DAC stats!
