According to the rules it should be possible to extract raw materials if you set a mining faction as the manager of the mine and a member of that faction as the operator.
However, after doing the above and setting everything up, including the workers and droids, and select "Start Mining" I receive an error. It says, "An error occurred: You must be set as operator when not owned by Mining faction." As the rules state otherwise would this be considered a bug? The mine is powered, I am the owner, the manager is a mining faction and the operator is a member of that faction. So it should be possible to start the extraction. Or is there something simple I am overlooking?
Gwen. Hop into the Mining faction and put yourself as the operator. Then you won't get the error and can start the mine. You need to be in the mining faction to start it, you can be out of the mining faction for the mine to keep running on repeat.
