Following on from mining an asteroid we now have looting the asteroid! After a blast with your mining laser, the surface of an asteroid breaks up and debris separates away. At the moment collision with the debris simply removes it from the game, but eventually it'll be scooped into your cargo bay (showing in your inventory) either to be sold on the market, or processed to get metal ore.
For those who asked: yes, there will be a single player game (which is basically how I test everything). Also, the alpha release will be single player only and will only be demonstrating game mechanics as set out in my original To Do list.
Also, I know some of my placeholder graphics are very sucky. I'm not an artist, just a nerdy programmer.
