Mining Bot - How to configure mining specific asteroids

Hi all,

First of all I would like to thank the owner and author of this code. It is super easy to install, execute, and I am sure there is a way to edit the script as well to insert a command for the ship to search and target specific asteroids.

I am currently still a noob at Python, but this is a great project to learn more about the language.

So here is my wondering:

  1. Is there a way that we could edit the script by letting the miner search nearby belts and only target certain asteroids - ie; Rich Plagioclase Asteroids.
  2. In the case that it couldn’t find any, it will mine the next best thing - ie; Azure Plagioclase, etc.

Some insights and guidance are greatly appreciated. Thanks all!

We can use the editor at to customize bot programs.
This editor als assists us with navigating, reading, and testing.
In this editor, we can adjust any aspect of a bot’s behavior, including priorities for asteroids.

Thank you. I will have a look at it first thing tmr morning. I will definitely tag you again if I hit any snags. I was thinking since this script is already so useful and smooth, i was thinking to tighten it a little bit more for asteroid priorities and activating modules only when shield is below X number and so on. Thanks for introducing and making this happen. You are the man.
