So before i go into this at all this is purely a cosmetic thing I’m proposing nothing to do with mechanics or additional features at all just something i felt would be a nice addition when the art teams got some spare time on there hands.
now that that’s out of the way lets dive in.
So as we all know as we are int he belt mining we just turn the miners on and mine until the asteroid suddenly splinks out of existence, just like that.
what id like to propose is having asteroids and Icicle’s gradually break apart as the yield inside the asteroids and icicles gradually goes bellow certain yield milestones until eventual the rest of the rock just completely breaks apart completely and just leaves an appropriately sized dust/ice cloud behind rather than just simply disappearing out of existence.
i know it doesn’t really do anything from a game play mechanic perspective but i feel this would add just a tad bit more satisfaction to mining watching the asteroids get decimated by your mining fleet as time goes by.
