Long Description

The Miner is a mobile mining vehicle with a large inventory. It can mine any of the solid ground resources like Iron Ore, Stone, Coal, etc. It it gets close to trees they are town down and the wood is collected. It will also burn the collected wood to keep itself running. The miner will continue to mine even without a driver.

There are 5 tiers of mining vehicles that take you up to the Miner MK5. Each tier increases the mining speed by around 2.5 times and also improves movement speed, inventory capacity, and fuel efficiency.

Mining vehicles do benefit from mining productivity research even though it does not show in the game's bonuses UI.

The miner is designed for AAI Programmable Vehicles which can allow a miner to dynamically move to now ore fields.

The miner is slow, so a Hauler is a good companion vehicle to collect the Miner’s resources and drop them off somewhere else.
