The Industrial Miner is an affordable 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, only being able to withstand a 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 has four main thrusters behind the bridge, four large containers for ore, and a tapered front end resembling an old model of the Advanced Miner. Takes a minimum of 150 seconds to fill up its hold.

Interior

The Industrial Miner's interior consists only of a short, yellow and grey hallway separated from the pilot's seat by a team-colored "door." The pilot's seat is about as tall as the player, black and grey in color, and faces an empty, grey room.

Advantages

  • 5th 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.
  • Affordable

Disadvantages 

  • Low shields and hull for its size.
  • Same mining speed as the advanced miner which costs around 2k credits less
  • Can be easily destroyed if too far from a Starbase/ the Megabase.
  • Slightly expensive.
  • Aliens often target Miners.

Strategy

  • 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.
