[Mexpex] Heavy Mining Drill [stable/dev]

Heavy Mining Drill

This heavy industrial mining drill is made to be used on larger mining ships.
Its designed with great durability and deep space mining expeditions in mind.

Weight: ~400 000kg
High Durability

(Solved by SE update)Low Durability

Small XL(for crazy builds)
Weight: ~400 000kg
Low Durability(bug?)

Lod -Yes
Survival - Yes
Dx11 - Yes
Dx9 - Yes

Max speed to survive crash
Large Block: 25m/s (highes ive tested)
SmallBlock: 20m/s (havnt tested higher or on server)

Cost and weight - It sure cost alot and there by gets a huge weight but its durable what will withstand to bump into asteroids. You dont want to arrive to a location and by misstake destroy the drill as the first thing you do.( will do test to compare durability)

Drill radius - I wanted to go for a kinda realistic size and made it a tiny bit larger

Storage capacity - In the config for the drill there is no option to set a storage size. But i think the size is detement by the size of the drill since the Earthbreaker is larger and got more cargo space.

Future mining themed equipment:
Cargo Container
Low profile sportlight
Larger Drill with a unique feature

To do
Better Collision model

Hello, we are planning to make highly customized SE Server(No monetization). Can we please edit and re-upload this mod to match our server theme?

Not sure you'll see this but if you do, how long does a model like this take to make? Including applying the textures and making it game ready. The model only, not the functionality from stuff like coding. I'm curious.
