|Mining Pack v1.04|
COLLAB W/ TRANSCENDENTGEEK
Click image for animated slideshow!
Completely changes mining. Some familiar stuff, most completely new.
RAW MATERIALS PROCESSOR (RMP) smelts ore into ingots (1/4th the weight, 20% more valuable), refines resources into fuel & extrudes ingots into armors.
Processes L1-3 materials; upgrade for L4-10.
RMPs generate BONUS RESOURCES during processing; sell them or refine into NEW FUELS.
DUAL ASTEROID SCANNER lets you know where to mine. Upgrade = more range & autotargeting.
NEW ORE&ITEM images to liven up your game.
NEW MINING GEAR: Mini, dual, omni-dual, ICX autominer.
Secondary TESSERACT cargo pods let you carry more, but drain power.
ORE PACKER AUTONS carry 380t of ore. Deluxe version is faster, tougher and shoots back.
MINING COLONIES now sell, install & repair mining gear.

Your just going to make me take forever to play with all your toys aren't you? :)
OUR new toys ;D
Beautiful.... Now! Time to get to work on V2!
Lots & lots things planned for version 2, by the way. But after weeks of hard, hard work... I want to take a break. Hehe.
Willy, Mining Mods are very Important to me : Mining in Transcendence saves me thousands of dollars on therapy :)
While I would like to see more Commerce for Miners ( your Ingots, etc, are a great deal ), I really appreciate your efforts for the Mining Industry.
WillyTheSquid yay, now i can rope you in to helping with my mod :D
Your team did a really good job, this might be the mining rewrite that the community's been looking for :D
beautiful mod indeed.
Incredible! Great job!
I look forward to trying this one out later this week... Thanks for the release, gang! :)
Thanks for the warm reception. No bug reports so far!
Amariithynar did a hell of a job breaking it apart during beta-testing, and TransGeek fixed issues almost as fast as they cropped up.
Hope you all enjoy it as much as we did making it. <3
I have been waiting for this mod. Time to start a new epic Network game wee! Thank you for all your hard work!
I am astounded by the warm reception of this mod. I am really happy that all our hardwork is paying off! :)
I have created a post on the forums for tracking bugs in this mod. Please post any bugs there thanks!
Updated at 59 DL to V1.04
UPDATED at ~50 downloads. Please delete the old version and use this one instead. Among other things, v.104 contains several important compatibility fixes for PlayerShip Drones v4.
108 freaking downloads. Whoo. Seems we did a good thing. <3
This mod has, for the first time since 0.7, made me want to mine. I've been making so much money and items like the ICX autominer make things less tedious. The only problem I've had is that the deluxe packer autons don't want to pick up ore on their own, but it's not a big deal.
Thanks for the bug report, we're on it. Keep on minin', big things are coming :)
Yay! 200+ dl
congrats, willythesquid and transgeek!
The next version is nearing completion :)
Addictive-ly good mod.
1. One word of taught. Should hydrogen and/or oxygen gas be refined into a fuel?
Since there are "traditional" uranium rods which produce energy via fission, shouldn't there be a hydrogen fuel which produces energy using fusion or reaction with oxygen? :)
2. More by-products! I like wastes! :P
3. Poor fuel depot, it really got neglected.
How about making the fuel depots buy material for making fuel? Helium regolith etc. Perhaps even some of the byproducts mentioned... ie the hydrogen, (Find a little bit of deuterium, and minute amounts of Tritium in every tank of hydrogen. The station might make some money off it) heavy water, water etc
Just realised how that sounds. Wasn't meaning the player finds deuterium and tritium in hydrogen, but that was a reason for the station to buy the hydrogen etc FROM the player.
I just finished the planning for roughly 100 new ores, ingots, ices, gases, and crystals. I will put hydrgoen based fuels and trade routes for refueling stations on the todo list thanks for the feed back and ideas!
Hmmm... How about... being able to make things out of the materials?
Granted, that would be another mod entirely, and without any mod-item dictionaries it would only mean another lonely mod without any way to make other things easily compatible with it.
Still, an excellent mod (and CONGRATS on MOTM!)
The raw materials processor makes armors currently. Soon it will be able to make nearly any armor in the game. It will also be able to make crates and barricades. I am also looking at making an ammo extension. Also possible a hydroponics auton.
I'm waiting to play a new game, solely due to this mod. Can't wait for the latest version to come out. :)
The ArmorPack is nearing completion; it contains more than 1250 armors and new variants, all of which are upgradeable. Most of these can be constructed from the RMP's ingots, with new resource types thrown in which can be mined by players.
So an "ultralight ceralloy armor" can be upgraded into "reinforced ultralight ceralloy" (extra HP), "hardened ultralight ceralloy" (radiation protection), "advanced ultralight ceralloy" (extra EMP/ion protection) or even into "light ceralloy armor". Basically, with enough ingots, you could craft any armor in the game.
Depending on how it works out script-wise, I might also toss in an armor salvager, which can combine armors into the next grade (currently: ultralight, light, medium, heavy, superheavy and massive; all of these come in reinforced/hardened and sometimes advanced versions). I've done a LOT of work rebalancing the entire armor system. Of course, it will not interfere with any armor from other mods.
Also included will be a randomizer (similar to the one in Weapons Extended) that will randomize the armor of friendly and enemy ships (within certain parameters of course... no Dwarg holochroal armor on Phobos ships ;).
Once sdw195 and I finalize the ArmorPack, it will probably be included in the next MiningPack version (which is nearly done).
Well, put the armor randomizer as an option. Might want to have an option to disable it.
Thanks for making a mod worthy of a new game.
Ytszazu, I have great news for you: sdw195 has outdone himself with the scripting for ArmorPack... there will be SIX randomizer settings, from "no randomization" to "extreme randomization".
"Checks for the 100th time for updates" :P
Great mod! Can't wait for the next version :)
I never plushed this! :D
Mismatched open parentheses, ending on line 1870. You forgot to close the block. There are also several more, one I think is on line 1526.
I started looking because I couldn't refine my He3 rods into reactor rods if I chose the specific materials to refine.
In the file TG_WTS_RawMaterialsProcessor, btw >_>
Yes, we fixed that for the next version. Thanks for your feedback Sujamma! Mining Pack v2 will more than triple the amount of features. It'll be out before the summer is over.
Good to hear! I love the pack so far.
I thought I had fixed that issue. I will try to get some sort of update out this week to fix any problems and add a bit of the new stuff in.
Any news? It's a long time since any updates.
I fixed some parts of Mining Pack. Link about changes here:
Proposed list of features for MPv2 here: http://www.neurohack.com/transcendence/forums/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=5411
Please to be leaving feedbacks !
New version of MiningPack to be released soon, it's been long enough! v1.51 should see you through until MP2 arrives.
Real hard-core coding & scripting wizardry is being whipped-'n'-warlocked into existence for the MiningPack. Update due within two weeks.
http://forums.kronosaur.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=5618 Vote for Mining Pack for mod of the year!
It worked fine in 108b, but in 110, it seems that disabling the scanner (to save power) disables it permanently. The option to uninstall/ install doesn't seem to help.
This mod has been dead for over a year, now. I really hate it when projects like this die, but what's worse is the fact that the authors promised fixes, but not only didn't deliver, but they never even replied to their thread, which suddenly died over 5 months ago.
LOL, I waited almost a year for the update for this mod.
You could try to talk to TG and WTS, they sometimes pop on IRC. The thing is they have RL stuff to do and they've been hitting rough spots lately.
Ferrandrite fibers are missing an image.
Hi all, I'm back from the black hole of suck that was the past year+. Talked to TG on Facebook briefly and I don't think he's up for MP stuff at this time.
Myself, I just installed 1.3 and my personal MP1.5 custom (not entirely bug-free in some areas) -- I'm going to see what parts of my MP1.5 get borked in Trans 1.3 and remove problematic and/or incomplete features accordingly to create a tight, functional mod.
And fix the damn basic oversight stuff like missing images. I feel kind of bad about not following up with fixes/updates/support for this MP version over the past year. I'd never expected 2000+ people to play it. For what it's worth, I regret not managing to roll out an updated, usable MP1.5 package for y'all back when it was needed.
So: I'm going to playtest for the latest Trans 1.3 beta, read up on any bug reports on Xelerus and in the forum thread... no ETA or anything,that I can promise at this time, but seeing as how I can't stand playing Trans without a fun & fully functioning mining experience... it will be worked on regularly between playthroughs.
Looking forward to the updates, Willy. 1.3 - and 1.5! - will be the better for 'em :)
Oddly, I haven't been able to locate any Mining Colonies in my current run. Time to unload/reload other mods to find the root of that issue, urk!
