|“||The Solar Mine deals extreme damage to ships that stray too close, funneling attackers into a single lane.||”|
|— Fan-made Description|
|All Mining Outposts|
The VEGA Mining version of a Terminus Mine, also attacks similarly by emitting a radiation field that damages ships that wander too close to them, thus forcing them into certain firing lanes. This usually can make rushing or sniping much harder as you will have to lose more space to avoid the mines.
It deals untyped damage to all ships in range, the same type of damage the Terminus Mines did before May 2019. Much like the Terminus Mines, They are completely indestructible.
As the most damaging structure in the game, you should NEVER enter its field of radiation as your ships will instantly be destroyed. This means activating AI Mode is not recommended, as your ships will not try to avoid the mines and thus make running into them a likely habit.
When rushing, make sure not to accidentally run into one and just fly around it, however if your attack relies on a small opening in the mines make sure to group them up, as if they are different hulls they will push each other into the mine, and fly in a line through the hole carefully.
- Solar Mines deal Untyped Damage, therefore its damage cannot be resisted in any way.
- Considering how deadly the Untyped Terminus Mines used to be, this version should never be taken as a joke as they will quickly melt any ship coming through in seconds.
