An extension which permits ships to collect pebbles from space.
This device is crucial to Mobile Mining operations.
It must be fitted to ships with XL class cargo capacity as all ores fall in this cargo class.
Some vessels come with this device built-in.
To collect a pebble, just collide with it.
Large rocks must be broken down into pebbles and asteroids that appear on the sector map must be shattered with a large explosive or Mobile Drilling System before they can be broken down.
Attempting to collect an oversized rock will result in a collision rather than collection, causing shield damage and occasionally hull and equipment damage even if your shields hold.
