in the current situation there is no point of learning the skills of `mining foreman’ past level 1 because the timer is always going to be reset at 1 minute, when running continuously.
the only way to get any benefit from learning the extra skills, is to start then stop the `mining foreman burst’ all the time.
because If you leave it running the weapons timer will reset it every minute regardless of your skill level
why i think this needs to change is, because the
mining foreman burst' is not combat it is mining, the same as using the salvager is not combat or using the tractor beam is not combat or using the scanner probes is not combat, Therefore why is using the mining foreman burst’ for mining the only one restricted by the weapons timer
Using combat scanner probes or a salvager has more to do with combat than the mining foreman burst and should therefore should not activate the weapons timer.
