    WARNING for some reason the connector that holds the drill head in place disconnects on loading. to reconnect go to the drill pistons and walk along them and there is a button panel and its button 4 to reconnect.


    this is a ship i have been working on, on and off for about a year now. designed from the outset as a long range exploration and resource claiming ship it features a host of features that have come from play testing it in survival with no jetpack.
    initially it was a way to build and launch mining claim beacons onto asteroids coupled with a moderate sized mining system and wow has it changed into a fully capable deep range survey ship.


    i prefer to walk around ships so this has been designed to be 100% foot accessible and you can also maintain all critical parts on foot. even the belly thrusters.

    size with the ships dimensions and overall shape has remained the same bar a few tweeks however it has had the addition of all of the access ways, docking facilities for 12 ships that are also foot accessible.

    this is a ship that is designed to keep you from falling off.

    inside there are also nods to the crew needs such as showers, a brig, a mess hall and bunks.

    just had a count up and this has 72 subgrids when you include the support craft. also in the save the drills are set to -1.1m.s they need dropping to .1 to drill safely.



    Breakthrough.
