Searching for resources
Underground resources wouldn't be so easy to spot, the player would have to do special drills to scan the nearby underground, when he finds something there, specialised mining drills that mine underground could be used there.
Some of the resources could be found only in underground.
The scanner can be used to find locations where the player can place a mine-shaft type structure. The player enters the underground through the structure just like entering a vehicle (press Enter).
Who knows what lives in the deep places of an alien world? Perhaps there are environmental hazards such as lava and acid pools? An adventurous player could risk everything for a great reward.
