I have an issue with mining boost for fleet personal. My main fly’s an orca and has almost everything to lvl 5. I’m just and old bastard (78) trying to have a bit of fun and keep my mind going.
First time the orca was used everything was fine. Fleet work was great. Then one session the boost said screw you and shut down. Working with one fleet mate at the time. Prior top boost stopping the fleet mate had 96.x/s before boost and 65.x after boost applied. great lets party. After a few days the boost stopped working. Boost on or off was 96.x/s. I filed a support ticket and was told repackage the mining foreman booster on the orca and the ice harvesters on the fleet. Repackaging the mining foreman booster worked. \o/ Back in the mining business, then after a few days up in smoke again. The repackaging thing did not work this time. I filed another ticket and was told to file a bug report. I did that on Jan 8, 2019. It hasn’t been cleared yet (SIGH). My thought process, for what its worth, says if is a bug I wouldn’t be the only one having trouble?? Can’t find any issues anywhere from others.
My initial statement was as follows:
Well Zephyr, as I recall I didn’t do anything special.
John = Orca
Jeff = Skiff
- I brought both John and Jeff on.
- I had Jeff check system to see if ice belt was up.
- – I started Jeff toward the system at 0 distance
- – Brought John out of hanger
- – I had John establish fleet with Jeff
- – I had Jeff start mining as soon as he made contact with belt to 0 distance
- – I had John apply burst module and targeted same ice Jeff was mining
- – John started mining with drone
at this point I kept an eye on Jeff for burst affect. all o.k.
- – Invited another player into fleet
at this point I again watched Jeff for burst affect. all o.k.
- – The Orca became full
- – John broke off and travelled to unload
- – After unloading John travelled back to Jeff and applied burst affect
- I checked Jeff and saw there was no bonus
- I asked other miner in fleet to check for burst bonus. Of course he had none.
- – John returned to hanger and do the package thing. Returned to ice belt. - No Joy
Tried again just now at 1222/eve Jan 4, 19… no Joy
Any guidance appreciated
