Hello, i can't place the miner pls how can we do :(

I have the same issue, tell me if you find a solution

The game should provide some clearer hint that the rock in the middle is the issue (I did notice the miner was rotating around the rock as a center point, but I somehow considered it the be the support structure)

I believe i remember something about needing to manually mine of any large rocks on the resource before being able to place miners.

+1 to this, if the big rocks are there the miner won't place. Go up to it and hold E till it breaks

Find any ore source, destory the one large rocks (The ore should be flat) and now you should able to place Miner MK1

Thanks, got really frustrated earlier when I couldn't place a miner..

Worked for me too - there was zero indication the boulder is any different from the node itself, there should be a tooltip or something.

Thanks, this was for me also the solution! Not clear to find this on your own!
