Provides a temporary boost to Hydrogen collection speed.

Mining Boost provides an increase in mining speed for a period of 10 minutes. It is a useful module to have if you micromanage effectively and would like your Miners to work faster.

Blueprints are obtained by researching level 1+ Blue Crystals.

Cooldown: 20m in Red Star. 8d 8h in White Star.

Hydrogen Bay Extension[edit | edit source]

HydrogenBayExtension.png

Increases the maximum amount of Hydrogen that a Miner ship can carry.

Similar in use Cargo Bay Extension; this module allows for more hydrogen to be stored in a Miner before being required to drop off the gas. It allows for longer mining trips.

Blueprints are obtained by researching level 2+ Blue Crystals.

Remote Mining[edit | edit source]

RemoteMining.png

Simultaneously mines Hydrogen from all asteroid fields in the same sector, at reduced speed.

Remote Mining is an extremely useful module that allows your Miners to extract Hydrogen from more than one asteroid at a time. However, a caveat is that, at least in the beginning, the mining speed is reduced, so a Miner equipped with a Level 1 Remote Mining module requires 3 different asteroids in the same system to mine at the same rate as a regular miner of the same level.

Blueprints are obtained by researching level 3+ Blue Crystals.
