Make the stacker accessible to cargo techs

Basically, either give CTs access to the mining processing area, or move the stacker's linked control console to an area where cargo techs can access it. This will allow cargo techs to unload materials from the stacker and distribute them, instead of badgering the lazy miners or the drunk-off-his-ass QM to do it for them.

Yeah it's not like the AI's always (((((((busy))))))) [read: afk, probably busy pondering where they took the wrong turn in life to wind up becoming a synth main], and also there are never any borgs,,,,, , ,

or anything



Also the miners can still push the button; they'd totally still have stacker access. This is just a contingency for the miners that don't push the button (i.e. 99.(10)% of them)

Yeah I've never been a cargo tech (always meant to, probably will now) but I've got a miner and a scientist. Ideally it would be more efficient for miners to just processes their ores, get their points then do whatever after rather than dragging them from cargo to science.


It's totally what I imagine cargo techs should be doing and would be more efficient. Actually I barely ever see those lazy cargo techs, poor miners! The furthest miners should go is to the bar when they get back, to drop off stories about rocks, spacewind and who fell down a z-level with the barkeep or to the kitchen.


Then again, miners are generally more over-and-under-the-table. Having to actually deal with more stringent cargo bureaucracy because QM says to get all the forms stamped and signed for all the plasma cutters, diamond drills, nanopaste and whatever else the miners need would detract from the whole torturing munkeys for science thing. So more minerals could mean more paperwork but also more science, but paperwork! :lol:
