There are a ton of posts on mines so I tried to look through them to see if I could find an answer but so far no luck. So I am posting this sorry if it has been answered.
I have taken over an enemy planet that has a mine field from hell. The battle was crazy. Anyway I did win and now I have this planet with a huge enemy mine field. Am I missing something? How do I get rid of this thing? Run ships into it over and over?
If there is no way to quickly do this then I definitely think there should be. I micro-managed the hell out of that battle so my ships wouldn't blow themselves to bits and now they still run the risk of the very same even though I now control the planet. Maybe there should be a ship that could disarm them? Or maybe when you take over a planet you can self-destruct the remaining mines? As it stands right now things are a mess.
Are my suggestions even needed? I mean is there already a way to do this? Even if there is I have to cast my vote with many here that as they are implemented right now mines seem to add a layer of tedium to the game. I really love the idea but as it stands now (to me at least) they are way to unwieldy.
