Mining Range (SOLVED)

Postby Infinity » Thu Feb 20, 2020 8:51 am

Is it possible to change the mining range for mining with mining boosters? I have a range within 38km and I don't want to approach asteroids. But bot can't start mining without orbiting around the asteroid.

You can disable the option to approach the asteroids by orbiting them but that's not advisable because you will quickly run out of mining asteroids within range. There is an advanced option to stop the ship (ctrl-space) when the lasers are detected as being active (flashing green). You should use that approach!

You have created a wonderful product and I believe it would be great to disable the checking range at all. It may be the input field with range value that the player can guarantee and a checkbox that will enable or disable the feature. Even if the laser can not mine in this range you can enable again algorithm for approaching, revolve around an asteroid (orbit), warp to another belt, etc. I am sure you know better about how to implement this. What do you think about this?

I'm not sure you understood my previous post. If the asteroids are out of mining range then the lasers cannot be activated and the ship needs to approach the distant asteroids, yes? If you do not want to approach then the current belt will be marked as "empty" and the ship will warp to a different belt from your mining folder.

Approaching is done by selecting an asteroid and clicking the "Orbit" button ("Keep at Range" would be more appropriate but it doesn't work on asteroids). For far-away objects "Orbit" works the same way as "Approach", meaning it gets the ship closer!

Then the program tries to activate the lasers again and if successful then you have the option to continue the orbit or stop the ship by pressing the "Ctrl-Space" keyboard shortcut. It is entirely up to you how you want to proceed!

Hope this helps.

I found the problem, I tried to mine asteroids from the survey scanner folder. The bot works only with the Mining tab in the Overview.

Why do I even bother to create an in-depth TinyMiner Tutorial with descriptive screenshots, where "survey scanners" are never mentioned, when nobody even bothers to read it?
