I would like to suggest creating a moon mining harvester (t 1 & II) that only works on moon ore. This harvester would only be able to fit on an barge or exhumer class ship.
Drones would no longer be able to mine Moon ore. This would remove the ability of fleets of afk Orcas sucking up moon ore. This would also allow players to better protect “their” moons by removing a super buffed Orca and replacing it with a barge or exhumer. Granted a proper fit skiff is an issue, but it’s still a better choice over an Orca in my opinion, if you feel ganking is what is needed to protect “your” moon ore.
We already have different types of harvesters for Ice, Gas and regular ore, so it doesn’t seem like a stretch to include a new version for Moon ore. Also, ice was mined for many years with only the use of a harvester, so again I do not feel this is a stretch.
This suggestion is to remove a possible afk/botting activity, whether it is in high sec or null sec. In this case, I just used the high sec version. The activity level for a player between a fleet of Orcas and a fleet of Skiffs is huge. It is very difficult to afk mine and watch Netflix, while controlling a fleet of Skiffs.
I believe this suggestion is quite fair for the game as a whole, although most moon miners won’t think so, but I hope it is given a proper consideration.
