I read the rules , but as usual interpreted them wrong.
I thought a mine collapse is what happens when the mine is fully depleted and a random number says there is nothing new found.
I have LIN droids in production right now that should stop this hopefuly then.
How common is it for a new resource to be found?
Maths/algebra isn't my strong point :p
Do you get a notice that there is a new type of RM found on the slab?
I see from the rules that you can only mine 1 type of RM at a time ,
but if another type has been found , do you have the option of which to mine for?
I guess it's better to mine slowly on all your deposits of the same type , rather than pick 1 to drain first.
The longer they are all going , the more chances you have at the random number saying a new resource has been found.
One Lin droid is fine, as far as I am aware. (never tried anything else, though)
Why would you set it to the listed yield if you want the max, just set it to 0. It's probably to do with crime, morale, or the random factor, yes.
When not owned by a mining faction I think a mine repeats when
-it's set to repeat (har har)
-the mine is managed by a mining faction (obviously)
-the operator belongs to that mining faction
-the NPCs are owned by the mine owner
