I'm not sure if it's been addressed before, but what are the mineral distributions like between asteroids? Can asteroids yield multiple kinds of minerals, and will there be different types of asteroids that yield minerals in different but consistent ratios (like in EVE). If so, will the AI be able to reason about which type/s of asteroids to mine based on their production / mercantile goals and knowledge about what minerals are required to build what items. Will the agents have complete knowledge about which minerals are required to build which items, or will this be something that they may have incomplete knowledge about and have to learn? If they do have incomplete knowledge, could information running/exchange be integrated into this?
