Drillers Bar Here at Drillers we specialize in removing things from other things. Mostly ores from the mines but we also remove turnips from the fields, scrap from abandoned stations and sticks from rears. Drillers are the frontline in any economy, and we are experts at prospecting too. Come join us at the Drillers Bar, where you can relax, complain, share techniques and frak the hell out of...everything.

Do you like to put your legs up and watch the stars go by as you cruise through the galaxy, moving cargo from A to B? Do you like profit? If you said yes to any one of these, then join us at were we talk about the best trade runs and how best to avoid pirates. But mostly this group is about hanging out between runs. Join here: https://community.dualthegame.com/organization/du-space-truckers Bullet Chain I could not write anything for this crazy group, because I couldn't take a look inside for fear of losing, if not my life, at very least a limb or two. I was told they do "sanctioned wealth redistribution programs" and "space trash removal expeditions". But most just say they "blow stuff up" and for some reason they always add "at a price" and laugh. It's dangerous in there. Join at your own peril. Join here: https://community.dualthegame.com/organization/bullet-chain Fullmetal Aegis There are warriors that are honorable and skilled. There are warriors that wish to protect the innocent and the weak. There are warriors that make the pirates pay for attempting to take goods, ships and lives. We are those warriors. Join like-minded individuals and trade stories of your brave battles against incredible odds. Join the honorable warriors. Join here: https://community.dualthegame.com/organization/fullmetal-aegis Dual Universe Constructors Guild We build. Everything from the smallest hovercraft to the largest space station. From the deepest mine shafts to the tallest skyscrapers. We build housing for the poor and monuments for the rich.

Scanning and mining devblog was added recently. And this got me thinking: One of the base ideas of all the mechanics in DU is to make it easy to use but hard to master. There is mastery in the form of both character skills and player experience. Can mining be made more interesting than point and click and the better the tool the more efficient the mining will be? I am not talking about the logistic of moving the material after it has been mined which could be an issue all on its own but rather this is about the mining itself. It has been mentioned elsewhere that the deeper you mine there is potential for heat dangers (Such as minecrafts lava pools). Other natural hazards such as gas pockets could also be an issue. I feel these should be done very carefully as they could easily become an annoyance and not actually make the game play any different. How about an increased or decreased efficiency in mining at a certain angle or from a certain direction, like with or against the "grain" or strata of a certain resource. Why this is interesting is that hand mining will more easily follow the changes of the resources strata while a digging machine will lose some of that efficiency. Can you think of other ways to spice up the mining?
