Hi all! This topic i whant dedicate to high-sec moon mining. In common this is good idea IMHO but one thing makes me total mad. This thing i named “random miners”. I think you can understand what i mean. When anybody can came to your moon belt and mine free. I think this is not fair. I will explain why in my opinion.
1. You buy citadel + fuel + rigs + moduls - spend money. And anybody can farm moon ore even without taxes. That means you lost money without any mechanic to save it.
2. Some guys told me - man in HS all ore is public and all miins is public too so idea of private belt is trash. I dont agree. Yes - moons are public but moon rock that was drilled by my Athanor or Tatara should be private rock of citadels owners and i must have mechanic to protect him from random miners who came to mine without my agreetment.
3. You can say - man ok. There is many mechanics to protect. Off. wars (except NPC miners) bamp system or suicide (aha - suicide orcas - i believe its possible). But all this mechanics dont save belt - bampers came agains off. wars dont work on NPC corp miners and suicide is wery risky idea (actually when more then 1 orcas came). So the only one way i see - is to make sovereign 0.5 moon ore belts with suspect system for all random miners. From the one side - it will give HS moonminers official mechanic to protect belts + free PvP such on events beacons etc.
4. Somebody can say - ok man. Keep more pilots in corp or twink acc. to take ore fast before another one came. Agree. But A.) Why should i must agree with somw form of contest in my private ore. B.) This not granted that small mining fleet will come in belt while owners mining and will start mine parallel. So this is not exit.
Summon all that i wrote. A.) I see problem here and think that protect mechanic need. What mechanic exactly - i dont know. Suspect - is my own offer to CCP. B.) I whant to hear another opinions - may be i am wrong in something. So i call foum to discuss this theme. Will be wery good if someone from CCP will write something about this question.
