Limited Ship

This ship is a limited ship, and could only be acquired for a limited time or it has since become limited.
You lose it forever once it is destroyed.

The Snowy Advanced Miner is a Miner with 8 small Mining Lasers. It was the first Miner to be armed, sporting a single Light Laser Turret, but that has since been removed.

Description

The Snowy Advanced Miner is a re-design of the Advanced Miner, made for the Christmas Event 2018. It features 8 Small Mining Lasers arranged on prongs protruding out from both sides of the ship.

Interior

The pilot seat is housed inside of a spherical glass pane topped with a Santa hat.

Advantages

  • Super fast and maneuverable.
  • Mines faster than the Rorqual.
  • Decent ore hold.

Disadvantages

  • Expensive; required 10 Snowflakes.
  • Pirates and Aliens often target Miners.
  • It is hard to get all Mining Lasers to fire at a single chunk of Ore, due to the ship moving in an odd way when compared to the Advanced Miner.
  • Once you lose it, you cannot get it back unless refunded.
  • It will be targeted by Pirates because of its rarity.

Strategy

  • Don't mine in War.
  • Avoid factions that are vulnerable to War.
  • If possible, mine in a VIP Server to avoid Pirates. However, Aliens can still spawn.
  • Try to check your map every 20 seconds for Aliens and other enemies.

Version History

  • Light Laser removed in version .65b.
  • Ore Hold increased from 1800 to 4500 later in version .65b.
