Since August 2016 I visioned myself mining asteroids in our beloved NMS for hours. However, the one area I find without depth is the asteroid mining in space. I love spending hours mining ore deposits on planets with the multi-tool. It’s therapeutic, relaxing and I can get lost in it.
I would love to be able to go to space and drop a scan much like you would to scan a planet but have (or a chance of having) an asteroid belt appear on your screen via icon, similar to icons for structures on planets. From there you could warp to the asteroid belt where it would have rare resources and asteroids to mine with a dedicated mining laser. I would love to be able to spend hours mining rocks in space and trading them back and forth between systems.
It’s a dream but I feel like this will one day be implemented in a future update.
What do you guys think?
