The Retro Commercial Miner is a Retro Model of the Commercial Miner.
The Retro Commercial Miner is a limited Mining ship with very little interior and a medium ore hold, designed to mine multiple Ores at once with great efficiency. It is a large jump in price from the normal Miners like the M Class. It takes a minimum of approximately 66 seconds to fill up its Ore Hold.
The Retro Commercial Miner has almost no interior. There is just a large glass cockpit with one seat, no detail, and a floor with a metallic texture. The Miner docks with the cockpit facing the terminal.
