mining boulders with ship drills mines ALL boulders of that type.
So... say You find an iron boulder, and you mine it. Only to find that ALL iron boulders in the game, has been mined. This is happening with all iron, silicon, magnesium, cobolt etc. so in reality, you only got one of each boulder. this is making my scenario very difficult, as i run a few mods to make it harder.
hand mining seems to work fine, and does not cause this bug to happen. Only small and large grid drills.
tested with no mods enabled, on a fresh star system game, and was able to replicate the issue.
