The Industrial Miner is a moderately expensive Miner class ship with two Medium Mining Lasers.

   

Description

The Industrial Miner has the fifth quickest mining speed out of all standard mining ships in the game due to its two medium mining lasers. The ship has low health, able to withstand few hits from Medium and Heavy weapons before being destroyed. Its total health of 2250 is directed more towards hull than shield (750/1500). Physically, the ship is long and appears to be made out of multiple sections that are held together.

Interior

The Industrial Miner's interior is covered with a glass dome. Inside, there is pilot's seat with a screen in front of it. There are also some cargo containers and cabinets behind the seat.

Advantages

  • Sixth fastest mining speed in the game.
  • Fifth largest Ore hold in the game.
  • The two Medium Mining Lasers have a range of 5500 studs, the same as the Rorqual.

Disadvantages 

  • Low shields and hull for its size.
  • Can be easily destroyed if too far from Starbase/Megabase.
  • Slightly expensive.
  • Aliens often target miners.

Strategy

  • Make sure to check if any enemies are coming every 30 seconds, either by looking around or on the Minimap.
  • Always mine in a peaceful faction to ensure safe mining.
  • If in a War check enemy locations every 30 seconds to avoid destruction.
  • If an Alien ship or an enemy ship is approaching you head back to base.
  • If an Alien ship is targeting your starbase while you are mining, stay where you are.
  • If possible, mine in a V.I.P Server to ensure safety from pirates.
  • If mining at the Megabase, look for ores close enough to mine while still docked.
  • Don't mine at the Mega Base during war, especially without protection.
