Wait… Quantum fuel is mined, not harvested from the atmosphere?
Starfarer cant mine. Did they just announce that Starfarer is no longer planned to be able to harvest quantum fuel?
The Starfarer will be able to transport and deliver / refuel in flight both regular thruster propellant and Quantum Matter. It will also be able to refine Quantum Matter into Quantum Fuel. The only aspect not decided is the mining aspect as we really don’t want to make the Starfafer a heavy duty mining ship but its likely we’ll have some smaller equipment; like a hand held mining device to allow you to EVA out to collect Quantum Matter – but we haven’t decided this just yet.
