The End and New Beginnings
- Game version:
The Miners Coalition have suffered many setbacks in their short time in space and many more in their long history.
During the Coalitions initial foray into the stars they discovered large quantities of usable resources in the abundant asteroid belts surrounding their system.
Groups large and small within the Coalition combined their resources to expand out into neighboring systems in the hope of striking it rich and beat out their rival factions.
The Coalitions people have had to adapt to the new way in a short time. This has caused technology to advance in starts and spurts as new issues have to be worked around.
Even their ships have been adapted to the harsh conditions within the belts from civilian transport and construction vessels.
Eventually, others took notice of the budding Coalition and pirates began to raid and pillage many outposts.
Much of the Miner's territory was lost due to the speed of the expansion only allowing minimal defenses being created and trained.
The various factions within the Coalition soon saw their predicament and confirmed the need to combine all remaining resources.
Soon many of their remaining ships had been retrofitted with weapons and armor plates instead of drills and grabber arms.
Now the people of the Miners Coalition must work together to maintain what territory they still own and hopefully someday retake what they’ve lost.
MC Badger Class Light Excavator Vessel
The Badger Class vessel, a ship that truly made much possible for the MC. The vessel was designed for deep space excavating within more dangerous environments of asteroid fields. This two-man craft is equipped with a light excavator module along with cargo pods to store it's precious gathered resources. Heavy armor plating has also been fitted to the craft to allow sustainability in the most dangerous environments along with two turret hardpoints later added to give the light self-defense against pirates. A true workhorse in the fleet and is what made the MC's expansion even achievable.
Builder's note: The goal I was going for in this build was for an asymmetrical ship that almost would look like a flying armored refinery. Turrets are not added in yet which I will update after the weapon update becomes official. Wanted to the cockpit to be more rectangular but I wouldn't mind hearing what you guys think. As always I'm open to any suggestions for the ship or faction.
29th of June, 2018: We've switched hosts and configurations for SMD, please report any issues. StarMade wiki is currently down, we will be bringing that back up over the next few days.
