I’ll go over how to use mines, miners, and other resources. It took me far too long to figure everything out. If you think we missed something or should have included more information, please let us know in the comments section below!
Unlocking the technology
You would think you only need the Advanced mining tech (top left). However, it would be best if you also had the Robotics tech (bottom right) to be able to place the building that produces the miner.
Building the right buildings
Multiple buildings are required to do business.
1. Robots assembler
This building is necessary for building robots. Whether the robot is placed on the planet or the ship doesn’t matter. You can move them later.
2. A Mine
This building MUST be placed on the planet. A mine on the ship will never be able to work on a world.
3. A docking station on the ship and the planet
Important: You need a docking station, not a connector. Your bots cannot cross your ship using the same docking station astronauts use to get onto your ship.
4. Enough power
The Mine on the Planet must be powered to allow the miners to work.
I made the case that I wanted coal mining, and the miners agreed to mine the one in the middle of the globe.
They couldn’t find a way to get there. If that happens, you will need to remove the dirt.
I hope you enjoy the Guide we share about Astro Colony – How to Build Miners. See you soon!
