Giant asteroid
« on: July 13, 2019, 11:05:05 PM »
I just found an asteroid with acceptable gravity.  I've never seen one before. ;D

In case anyone is interested:
3-B Asteroid #10  Colony Cost 1.8  Temp 53.2  Gravity 0.16  Atmosphere None  Diameter 1800  Mass 0.0031  Density 1.10  Magnetic field 0.004

To beam, or not to beam.   That is the question

With that density and magnetic field, I guess it's a massive iron-nickel asteroid, instead of rock and ice.

Also, you couldn't mine it in C# due to the changes with Asteroid Miners becoming Orbital Miners as the diameter is more than 500 km.
