The MPO Mine Extractor is used to extract ores from the crust of Mars. Once extracted, Albert West can refine these ores at the MPO Ore Refining System. This system can be found in the Mine, but once Level 2 Mine Software is installed, this system can also be remote controlled in Central Control and Nilson Engineering. Extracted ores are stored in the Material Storage.
Extraction of any ore can be cancelled at any time. The extractor can only extract one type of ore at any time (up to 50 of it in a single command), but extraction can be queued so that another begins when the current ore is extracted. The queue begins with a maximum capacity of 4 with level 1 software and increases by 2 for each software level.
The following items can be produced (with the required software):
