Mining in AuroraEdit
If you choose Asteroid mining you mine asteroids in space. You need to use an Asteroid Mining Laser and Asteroid Ore Storages. Additionaly you can use the Asteroid Scanner, which gives you information about how much Ore the current Asteroid has.
If you choose Tiberium mining you mine Tiberium Crystals, which you can find on the planet Kaepora. You need to use a Tiberium Mining Extractor and Tiberium Storage. You can't use a Scanner for Tiberium, but it has Storage Holders instead, which you don't need to use, but it'll help Tiberium mining.
Manual MiningEditMining with a self controlled Miner in a vehicle that uses an Expression2 or a GyroPod for movement and has no or partially automated functions.
Auto MiningEditAutominers are miners controlled by Gates or Expression 2. The Mining Process can be fully or half automated. For Auto Mining you need good knowledge of wiremod and it's functions.
