From Open Perpetuum

The Riveler is the Industrial most held in respect by the combat bots of Nia. Capable of gathering the raw materials of war more effectively than any other platform, their cost to build and maintain still cause them to be viewed  as an indulgence, rather than a necessity. All the same, a group of Rivelers harvesting a chunk of terrain has an impact like no other, and every Nian nation respects that bottom line. If you can afford its services, the quiet effectiveness of the Riveler is without peer.

Common uses

Riveler is the best mining platform out there, used in all serious mining operations. Thanks to it's bonus to armor and numerous industrial slots it is also used as logistics, capable of great armor repair and energy transfers. While not as specialized as Metis, the MK2 versions had much more fitting space and slots, allowing for higher peak regen and if specialized, more repair as well.


MK2 bot is an improved version of a normal bot. Typically, it recieves additional bonuses, better fitting space, 50% more cargo and slightly higher speed when equipped. MK2 bots also require at least level 1 of Hi-Tech Robot Specialist extension and recieve additional bonuses from this extension

Aside from statistical advantages, Riveler MK2 gets a 1% bonus to mined amount and +1 head and leg slots.
