I have been working on salvaging for quite some time now.
I am using a Noctis fully set and rigged for salvaging and I can clean a lvl4 mission site pretty fast.
But I wanted to see if I could up my game and make it even faster.
So I bought a couple of salvaging drones to see if that could hasten the process.
This is the description of the drones:
Once launched and given the order to salvage, this drone will automatically seek out your wrecks in the vicinity
This is definitely not true. Once I launch them the drones sit idle by my ship waiting for me to target a wreck and order them to salvage it.
Further more I was surprised to see that after salvaging one wreck they stop and I have to order them to salvage the next one manually.
Even when I have 2-3 wreck less than 1km away.
So one of these 3 things has to happen:
- Someone tells me what I am doing wrong with the drones so I can have them auto-salvage continuously
- Change the description so that it is not misleading and leave the Salvaging drones take dust because right now they are useless (at least for any serious salvaging).
- Fix the drones so that they auto-salvage everything as soon as they get out and some wreck comes into their range (meaning that if they have no wreck they can salvage they stay idle, but if I tractor beam a salvage into their range they will jump on it).
