Copper Ore Drills

Did it never bothered you that you could unlock iron drills, but apparently you had to keep mining copper with a pickaxe forever ? Not anymore !
Add the copper drill (1-2-3) to the game. Unlock through the same research than iron drills.
They are similar to iron drills (power, resources produced, appearance....), except for the fact that they need copper in the ground, and produce raw copper.

Also edited the description text for the iron drills, to reflect the differences with the copper drills.

The main rule of thumb (i think) is as long as the haven't worked on anything resource specific, you should deem it safe to install a mod that ADDS onto it. As long as the base remains the same throughout the alpha versions of this game it should be safe to install these type of mods.

Yes. Unless there is an issue I'm not aware of.

Yes, you can add it to an existing save with no issues. If you have the tech, you'll be able to build them right away.

Would this be fine in an existing save that already has the relevant research?

Erei (and Xynth), the mesh and textures bit for Xynth's . . . Suggestion would be pretty easy. All you'd really need is a cube in Blender with some sort of "concrete" texture pilfered from someone else (with full credit given, of course). The main issue I'd see is that I don't think the game really allows for it. EG, structures tend to go all slopey according to the terrain and I haven't seen any exterior building on exterior building action, so I doubt very much you could even make it work with the modding tools. I'm guessing that's a whole week of trying to make it work, going bald (from tearing your hair out), and throwing your hands up in the air cause' you've given up on life and no longer care about anything. Initially you just turn to hardcore nihilism, but after 3 months of 4chan you can only find solace in coke zero and cocaine. The strain on your heart causes you to OD, but you have a note in your hand with the missive, "D*** YOU, XYNTH!"

I made the drill to be similar to the vanilla iron drills, and I'm not sure I can increase the amount of ore they can keep.
They are fully automated as it is though. Just have someone whose job is to haul for a copper storage, and he will empty them. Just like with any other storage.
