    Mining Turrets for CV? I wonder if Mining Drills for CV will follow? :)

    Nonetheless, will be awesome to have a REAL way to Mine Resource Asteroids! :D

    Also how the hell did Space Engineers get an "Honorable Mention"? Shouldn't have that been a "Dishonorable Mention"? o_O

    Great job, and maybe I'll mention it here- I found a bug where the "setrotation" command isn't saving on a server. If you stop the server and restart, the object will back to it's old rotation. Cheers! Happy New Year!

    A well deserved award.

    That being said, IndieDB are using a lot of outdated screenshot previews for the game which is unfortunate.
