Harvesters make an entrance. You can deploy these new player owned structures near an asteroid belt or wreckage and it will automatically collect the ore. Then simply pickup later with your cargo ship.

MiningArrayGlowSo this the new "Mining Harvester" coming with the Version 4.8 update. Plant this baby right next to an asteroid belt, give it some power and fly away. Transport your ore back [ In Bulk ] to the station every 30-90 minutes depending on the type of harvester you use! Going to be a must have for any industrialist.

**WARNING** Harvesters are not secure, but we'll have deploy able turrets in the next update to protect your sectors.
