In the stable builds, pickaxes and drills are the main methods of mining out things (apart from the Matter Manipulators). However, this has changed in the nightly builds.
I've noticed that Pickaxes and drills are no longer the main progression in mining; they're not in the workbench anymore!
Instead, I've noticed that you're meant to use the Matter Manipulator more often, and that you can't repair picks with ores like in the Stable builds.
- What do I do with pickaxes?
- Is there any faster mining methods (apart from using the Matter Manipulator or a pickaxe^)?
- How do I get them?
^Because that would just be very expensive (in terms of ores).
