Mining speed[edit | edit source]
To calculate the Miner Mk.1 mining speed:
(mining speed) = (purity modifier) * (overclock percentage) * 60
Purity modifiers; Impure = 0.5x, Normal = 1.0x, Pure = 2.0x.
The mining speed for the non-overclocked Miner Mk.1 is:
|Node Purity||Mining Speed
Overclocking[edit | edit source]
The Miner Mk.1 can be overclocked up to 250% speed, at the cost of greatly increased power consumption.
|50 %||100 %||150 %||200 %||250 %|
Placement[edit | edit source]
The Miner Mk.1 can only be placed on resource nodes. Often resource deposits will spawn on top of resource nodes, they appear as large chunks on the resource nodes. The Miner Mk.1 cannot be placed on top of a resource node that has a resource deposit; the engineer must hand-mine the resource first, which usually takes less than half a minute.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
The Miner Mk.1 can be built on the resource node even if the entire node is covered by foundations. This does not apply to Portable Miner.
