    Save file that also contains edited Config.ecf here.

    Video demonstrating the bug, with and without Config.ecf.

    Are you using custom config.ecf with edited values of CV laser drill?

    No mods to CV laser drill. I'm using the T2 drill and the drill value is modded. I will check and see if that makes any difference.

    I have discovered that a drill damage value above 79 triggers the bug.

    It matches my findings too. It was changed sometime about 3 weeks ago when the last couple updates of A9, where published. Try to install A8 change the same value on config and you will do this.



    In archived bug reports there is one of mine with the same problem. The video I created is this

    Try changing the drill speed instead of the drill damage and see if the bug is still there.

    So your useing a custom config with the T2 Drill and that way u can mind Asteroids infinite?

    If thats the case. We already internaly decided to not fix exploids created with a customised config

    It's not an exploit, it's a bug in the game when the damage is set over 79. It's a legitimate game bug. Why are we allowed to even modify it then?

    It's also a newly introduced bug. It DID NOT do this in prior versions.

    You are correct .Before build 2281 there was no problem with the value. From what I understand it is an exploit, because it allows the player to mine infinite amounts of ore, caused by a bug, between config.ecf and internal game code variable values. EGS chooses to declassify it, and officially seems they will not do further investigation. So the players know this can mine infinite ores from asteroids, until something changes.

    The custom config can be used to do all kinds of crazy stuff outside the standard bounds of the game.
