Grineer Mining Machine - Bucket Container

Recommended Posts

Just noticed this when I saw the handle... The back of the Grineer mining machine is a bucket. A metal bucket clipped onto a pipe shape, resting with on a platform. I just found it really jarring when I suddenly noticed after all this time!

 

Will this be replaced with something that feels more cohesive to the machine's function?

Mining machine drills hole into resource rock.

Resource rock is loaded into a container through the machine.

The container is able to be lifted by cranes to be poured into refinery machines.

 

I don't see the issue. It's practical and makes sense.

 

In a way yeah, before posting this, was imagining it also functioning as a crucible of sorts.

 

But... That handle. That handle looks quite... Barring future tech, the bucket's whole design feels out of place for that sort of thing; it doesn't have that heavy industrial 'feel':

I'd also think that the connector to what feeds ore into the bucket (not modeled in game) would present an additional point of failure; ore spilling out due to door(?) structural failure from repeated use.

 

I'd be much more happier if ore were expelled into a dump truck-like rear.
