so there's lot's of talk about getting raw materials to make your ships and weapons and stuff. I want to know how you get all this stuff. I really like the idea of mining valuable ores from asteroids, but it also sounds like it would be utterly ridiculous. why would you mine this barren, worthless asteroid when you have this planet full of valuable minerals to dig up?
anyway, would you mine with drills, lasers, shovels, pickaxes or sticks? where do you mine it? what do you mine?
