Greycat ROC mining vehicle

Recommended Posts

For us Starfarer/Gemini owners this Greycat ROC may be the best option now in order to mine quantanium on our own atm. Would have preferred something that could also operate in space though like a mining skiff but I guess landing my Gemini on low-gravity moons will have to do. :P

As for price it's a complete unknown at this time. Personally I'm hoping that it will be relatively cheap but we all know CIG doesn't know that word. So I'm guessing $75 while hoping it will be less. ;)

Moons would need to have locations that buy resources and ground vehicles need mapping to return to them.  Until then I find it hard to see how there is any way this truck is preferred over a prospector.

The fact that you enter it like a skid-steer excites me a little.

I just logged over 30 hours in Astroneer this month and little buggies are growing on me so long as they get cargo trailers.

For one, it will probably reach areas that the prospector can't, and another advantage is that you don't have to be flying a specific mining ship to take advantage of any large valuable deposits that you come across in the 'Verse. Especially useful once we lose the ability to call up any ship from any terminal. Having one of these in a corner of my cargo hold actually makes exploration a much more lucrative activity with the larger ships when a prospector isn't readily available.

Question, since there is no refining (not even the sorta one the prospector had) it kinda means that only 1, maybe 2 SCU. Can the "saddle bag" be taken of and stick on an empty one while out mining?

Anyway, The prospector has 64 SCU without changing and I am hoping that this will make real (in game)

Do you think when mining in a vehicle like this, could the mined rocks be stored in a nearby owned ship?

This would be cool to get with possibly a larger cargo ship (Constellation, Mercury, etc) where you could go mine everything and store it in another ship...

Doubt it. SC  is supposed to be grindy and the fact that you'd have to go back each the bucket if full is already there. ... just a different type EG crashed ships. the loot is bad if you were expecting all the riches heh.

I re watched the Citizencon panel where this was discussed and thought up a great use for the wheeled miner.  Large caves.  If the cave is large enough for a vehicle, then you will need this.  Walking into caves is already a risk with limited suit power and air, having a vehicle (for where ships can't fit) to replenish and empty your pockets would be really helpful.

CIG released a article yesterday labeled "Portfolio: Greycat Industrial" which talked about expanding the line of Greycat vehicles in the last section and navigating "cramped mining tunnels".  I'm going to go out on a limb and say CIG is giving us all a clue on the next (leaked) concept and we're going to see this Greycat mining vehicle soon for sale.

      Who we are

      We are a privately owned geological survey organisation, that proudly delivers commercially viable mineral deposits for the galaxy’s mining industry.

      Xenosystems Exploration & Survey performs the prerequisite checks which enable the discovery and extraction of popular commodity constituents, from intra-planetary and extra-planetary sources, and facilitates the sale of its mineral property assets to its corporate partners.

      The co-founders of the business made their fortunes by investing in a little-known mining venture formed prior to the advent of RSI’s Orion mining platform, and based on the knowledge of its anticipated arrival, by developing a lead into what was, then, a very stagnant and exclusive industry.

      No one was prepared for the explosion of entrepreneurial activity hat originated with the commercial release of the Orion, nor did they foresee the profound effect it would have on the economy. Suffice to say, our founders’ initial investment performed rather well.

      With the dividends of their success and their burgeoning knowledge of the mining sector, our founders incorporated Xenosystems Exploration & Survey as a cutting-edge prospecting organisation, to discover and acquire new mineral deposits for resale.

      Xenosystems is now rolling out an aggressive growth strategy, with a view to becoming the premier prospecting establishment across all sovereign territories. For more information on career opportunities, please click here.




      What we offer

      Xenosystems is an industrial organisation first and foremost. Our intention is to create a robust and profitable company within the ‘Verse, within which our members can have a great time and thrive.

      While the mechanics of payments and contracts are still in development, we can provide a rough guide of the types of gameplay we’ll be offering for new and existing members.

      Solo or Coop

      The beauty of Xenosystems is that our core activities can carried out by lone wolves and team players, alike. If you want to prospect, mine or claim by yourself this is entirely possible and welcomed. We know that some nights you’ll just want to tune out, listen to a playlist and bash some rocks. We’ll be around later for when you want the camaraderie of others.

      What we aim to offer to the solo player, is a number of benefits such as those outlined below:

      Use of org ships. Typically these will include Terrapins and Prospectors.
      Profit share
      Support & Rescue
      No micro-management. Ever.

      For those interested in teamplay, we envisage our standard industrial teams to run from 2 players upwards in an almost infinitely scalable fashion. We will likely recommend that operations take place within a two system radius of our mobile base of operations, so as not to stretch our support abilities too far, but we’re more than open to allowing teams and individuals explore opportunities further afield. The idea is that we can have any combination or quantity of teams working together in concentrated or distributed areas to achieve our strategic objectives.



      We specialize

      You might be wondering why you don’t see any security allocations in our team examples. This is because we plan to outsource most of our security requirements to a growing list of trusted commercial partners. This way we can focus our development and training on our core competencies, helping us to become the best mineral extraction and property asset management firm in the ‘Verse.

      However, for those of you interested in taking a proactive stance on safety and security, we will be establishing regular joint training sessions with our partners. This will allow them to become familiar with our operational requirements and limitations, and permit our members to learn combat techniques and awareness from the experts.

      It shouldn’t go without saying that we won’t require every minute of your life to be dedicated to the organisation. It’s a game at the end of the day and we don’t want anyone to feel limited by our areas of specialism.



      Careers

      Recently incorporated and in the nascent stages of growing its ranks, Xenosystems Exploration & Survey aims to become the leading supplier of geological survey and mineral property asset management in the ‘verse. To achieve this, we intend to develop a robust and driven workforce, built upon expertise and initiative.

      We are currently recruiting a variety of positions, from support staff right the way through to senior management. If you feel you have the required skill set and passion to contribute to the organisation, get in touch.

      For management roles, please use this contact form. For standard applications please use the link to our RSI org site.

      You can also contact us directly via Discord.
