Mining will not finish


#1

Mining. I select my asteroid, click on my mining laser and it will not finish mining. Cycle time is 7 seconds. I have waited 20 seconds, 30 seconds, 45 seconds and it will not finish. As soon as I click on another menu item (cargo bay, Exit asteroid field, etc.) the mining session indicates that I collected ore.
I have tried three different asteroid fields in Terra with the same results.
Using Google Chrome. Doesn’t appear to be a LAG problem as everything seems to be responding normally.

Exact same thing is happening to me right now, first game action this morning, started from fresh browser session (using Firefox).


#3

Actually not exactly the same thing, I have to leave the asteroid fieldm nothing else will stop it; no resources collected.
If that means a work in progress towards continuous miningm I am all for it but it would need some information to show that something is actually happening.


#4

Well I tried again, and this time after leaving the mine field I saw that I had actually gathered resources (18), so it does look like a modification towards continuous mining; going to test this further and see if it mines some every time, or just now and then (means I will need to unloaf to b sure, before every attempt).
I do have a lot of mining to do anyway, atm.


#5

I just tried something else: while miningm I opened the cargo bay to see if anything was incoming.
The instant I open the cargo bay, a few ores are added, BUT mining is interrupted.
Testing this further by waiting a few minutes before opening the cargo bay shows a difference of 4 ores, therefore equivalent to 1 mining, not anything continuous.

Which leads to my workaround until his bug is fixed: start 1 mining as usual, then immediately open the cargo bay to collect; rince and repeat as needed.


#6

add me to the list, same thing elkhorn is seeing. just started right after 00:00 on 10/21 because I was mining earlier this afternoon (10/20 2300hrs) and it seemd ok.


#7

Just started for me as well. I mined earlier as well, with no difficulty. Seeing same results with leaving field and opening cargo bay; my feeling is that anything that takes us off the mining screen will interrupt the mining sequence, but have not tried yet.


#8

I can currently replicate this issue here, so we will investigate this morning and update when we have an answer.

I stripped my mining laser and reinstalled it, and now I can mine normally again.


#10

This should now be resolved, please report back if you are still experiencing issues.
