How do you mine planets?
In sots 2 you could build mining ships that basically transfered resources from 1 plat to another. Letting you make use of low size planets to improve larger ones. How does this happen in sots 2 ?

gas giant moons and asteroid belts can have mining stations built on them that increase resorces avalialable to nearby systems. this can be done in both owned and unoccupied systems by both yourself and the civs. see wiki for futher info. you can also overharvest colonized planets. i dont know if there is a dedicated mining ship though.

But there is no way to bring in more resources into a system. Yet......

Each mining station in a system gives +500 IO to all the colonies in that system. Each mining station in a system without any colonies gives +250 IO to the nearest system with a colony.

You can increase the resources on a planet by intentionally letting asteroids hit it..

It would be quite fun if you could build a beacon that draws asteroid strikes.

Like a Bat Symbol for asteroids? Asteroids, assemble!

In sots 1 you had tractor(sp?) beams which you could use to move asteroids from the system belt and use them as giant shields before you smashed them into the planet. Was epic.

Really? SotS 1 didn't have systems, just planets. True some planets had asteriod fields, all around planets. No system belts though.
