The Ladybug

Very functional, balanced, easy to pilot and good handling super afforable tiny HV miner.

Just look down with your mouse to quickly begin mining, no fiddling necessary.

90 degree climb easily, increase hover height and look down towards the wall as you climb

Tap "Y" twice to close hatch for anyone who is curious.

Check out the extra features slightly more expensive 1 square longer version here

For my other designs check out:

Update: added o2 tank and dispenser

C: lower height
Spacebar: raise height
Hold O: stabilize
P: access devices
V: 3rdperson/1stperson
Shift+Spacebar: hover booster
PgUp/PgDn: 3rd person camera up/down

OK, this is the best thing I have ever come accross. I have had to leave other HVs in a giant hole stuck until I finally disassembled them. This thing allows me to angle straight down to get started and I collected 650 ore in under a minute. That would have taken me at least 5x as long with drill T2.

@jaymac25 Glad you like it! :D

@Smigley Yeah i was only really able to fit it in when i made the Ladybig. Constructors do adhere well to color. :)

After I looked at your updated version, I see we did the O2 the same way.
Actually I was surprised that you can barely tell the constructor is there. I expected it to stick out more.

Love the Ladybug. As I said on the other post only change I make is I armor the windows as i tend to break them

@Ebin hehe thanks! :D

@Smigley Nice! I did update it awhile ago with O2 but the original did not have it. It's good that you were able to fit in a Constructor, couldn't find a way without making it the Ladybig while keeping functionality of RCS. Good addition either way! :)

While it does have a slight tendency to roll (found that this was alleviated with additional RCS and horizontal thruster placement), and vehicular mining in this game still has it's bugs- not your fault... this is a fantastic creation.

Clever namesake and proper (dare I say great) usage of the game mechanics - meaning it's quite functional

Keep up the good work!

Hi Kaphe.
I moded the LadyBug to include O2 and Constructor in the same shell.

I love this thing. I use it all the time. Even after I have tons of resources, I still keep using it. I added it to my collection.
