Mine Detector

From Outscape Wiki

Mine Detector is a ship module that works in conjunction with the Ships (usually a Corvette) own scanner suit to detect Enemy minefields.

Please note it DOES NOT Allow for the sweeping of those mines by itself, that is a separate Technology that needs to be researched to create a separate Minesweeper Module.


To gain access to mine detecting technology, you need to research Mine Detection Techniques. Mine detectors can be fitted to Corvette class hulls only. A Mine-sweeping corvette may perform its function if it is the flagship of a fleet, or if it is a solo ship.

A ship equipped with an active mine detector module will then be able to see minefields laid by other players (and avoid sending fleets to their doom!). Detection time varies by Tech level at present.

Access to this technology can come quite early in the technology tree. If another player manages to get close enough to one of your planets to lay a minefield around it, for now you'll have to wait for it to decay.
