[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

This drill is by far THE best deep core drill ever created.... put it on the ground, slap an energy source on that badboy and watch it go :D pro tip, drop an powered beacon down the hole after waiting 5 minutes it made my day

Is there any chance you will update this Mod in the near future there are a few things that are wrong with it and I was just wondering if they will ever be fixed because I love this mod

The conveyor on large grid drill has pink textures. Just a heads up.
Also, yeah some note would be nice to tell if the mod is up to date as of it's release like the PCU and stuff added and the fact it still has "[stable/dev]" from SE beta days and also "Dx9 - Yes". :)

Ghost it's probably the weight of the drill; these drills have always consumed a metric fk ton of resources to build. The piston/rotors are likely just too weak to lift/spin them in gravity.
