|— In-game description|
Resource Mines are world structures used to generate a constant stream of raw resources even without a Player present requiring less oversight than normal raw resource gathering, but producing less in comparison.
The Resource Mines produce only when fueled. Whilst fueled they create a constant stream of resources into their stockpile. The type of resource created depends on the mines type. A mine can be refueled by hand (by equiping a fuel can, then holding
LMB) or by using a Fuel Tanker, it is much faster to use a fuel tanker.
The mines can use either Diesel or Petrol. They have two internal fuel tanks holding 1000 units each, a Jerrycan of fuel refills 100 units of fuel meaning a maximum of both 10 Diesel and Petrol cans are able to be stored.
A mine will use 1 unit per operation thus giving you 100 cycles per full can. Using Petrol over Diesel increases the amount of resources produced per cycle ("High Efficiency" vs "Low Efficient" mode). The production rate can seem inconsistent due to the game not waiting for missed packets of information while playing (Interface Lag). If a mine has both types of fuel it will consume the petrol first.
By putting your cursor on a resource mine icon on the Map you can check the remaining fuel amount and contents of resources already collected. This is only possible if your faction owns the region zone where the mine is.
As neutral Structures these can be accessed by anyone and if destroyed lose all Fuel stored in the internal tanks.
Every mine has an invisible loading area next to it where a Resource Container can be deposited with a Crane to interact with the mine and transfer the resources from the mine's stockpile directly into the container.
The Salvage Mine produces Salvage and is the fastest Automatic Mine, fueled by either Diesel or Petrol. Salvage can be refined into Diesel, Explosive Materials or Basic Materials by bringing it to a Refinery.
