The Miner Drone is a miniature bot chassis which operates from Drone ports.

Miner Drones are equipped with a hidden Miner component, allowing them to gather Metal Ore, Crystal Chunks, Silica Sand and Blight Crystal Chunks. When their home port targets one of these resources the Miner Drones will deploy and begin mining, docking when their inventory is full. It is also possible to set individual drones' registers and inventories for more complex supply line management.

  • When working miner drones consume 20 power: 15 for the Miner component and 5 power for the drone itself.
  • As of Experimental 0.1.11685 Miner Drones will no longer dump excess items on the ground when returning to their port, instead hovering nearby until free inventory space becomes available.
