The Mining Elevator V2.0
The Mining Elevator V2.0 allows for the vertical digging of mine shafts. This aids in the mining and access to ores and getting back out of the ground.
The ship will tell you your current planet and a Hud indicator for the depths of the ores that you can find on z planet.

P.S. Can use as a hover platform to rescue ships.

Why was this reactivated? It no longer works with current gameplay.
Any chance of a space engine version for asteroids??
Dispenser at IC spaceport is empty
The dispenser at the IC spaceport was empty, stopped buy to purchase a couple units yesterday. I go there today and the dispensers are gone...
TJFury, it would require lvl5 skills with the scanning dig tool, you need the general dig tool.
Yes I will Stryker79
Will you take trade in? V1 for discount on V2?
As I mine down, the elevator keeps getting stuck and I then have to dig it out I am using the #3 tool and I am at full talent for Mining range and advanced mining and at level 4 for the rest giving me 88% total for mining. Let me know if you have an idea on how to fix this oh yeah the #3 tool is at its widest range which is almost big enough for me to slip down between the mine shaft and the elevator. Hmmm maybe make it smaller for a better fit :-))
I'd like to pike up a token, please
I think I have V1...never been able to figure it out. Definitely want V2
You might not finish the mega node or the area of ore at 1000m and to get back down you would have to otherwise remember how to navigate the web of mine you got down there with. So you save time.
Force resporn will not always be a thing, container link range might get nerfered.
I love the concept, but I wonder how using this ship could be more eficcient than just respawning back in my ship at the surface?
Thank you, it works perfectly :)
The ship is on a XS-core, so you can attach it to an S-core or higher using the manoeuvre tool. Also DrHowie I am glad this are looking up for you ;)
Great innovation. After purchasing the mining elevator I discovered I was able to maintain a long, wide shaft. My married life has never been better.
Hello, I have just purchased the Mining Elevator, and I am wondering how to transport it to a remote location ??
I will buy two tonight.. and I'm sending this to a team of 10 miners who will hopefully also buy ! :)
This is one hell of a time saver when you dig large holes in the planets like me.
When you have to diggy diggy hole and get out!! This is a full bag of awesomesauce!! Well played!!
I use this daily and love how easy it is to use. Thanks for the awesome build.
