Hello all i have had an idea that i would like to share with you that could possibly improve the problems we have with AFK mining and in particular Orca’s.
It seems that people are getting away with just AFK mining in orcas instead of actually playing the game and with the recent nerfs to roids i have had an idea to keep people interested and help people get in fleets and enjoy the social aspects of mining again.
As such here is my proposal:
Orca’s have the ore from mining drones go into their cargo bay instead of just dropped straight into their Ore hold.
the cargo bay should be reduced to accommodate 1 full all V skilled mining drone yeild plus say 300m3 for anything else that said ship may be carrying.
in addition to this the drones should after dropping the ore Return to mining but if the ore is not cleared before they return then the ore the drones are carrying should be lost to the harsh conditions of space therefor depleting roids and making it harder a downside to being AFK.
But now the good bit:
The Orca’s Boost For mining Speed should apply to the drones to compensate for Actively playing which would be a sizeable buff to mining in the long run as you would accumulate ore faster.
I hope you all like my idea and we could discus this further to work some of the kinks out
