the reason why they did that so don’t want people to go AFK anymore mining at all so it make it less lucrative why they totally forget materials are needed for manufacturing
and the less desirable they make mining less resources people will have for making stuff the cost of everything it go up and people start reprocessing modules reprocessing needs to be nerfed again it’s starting to come more lucrative than mining
They change the fields back to crescent field as many were having issues navigate around. Those in wormholes and trig space had little issue other than the over sized rocks which was replaced with standard sized ones.
The available ore is still the increased amounts.
So with a good fleet you can pacman from one end to the other in normal space, just takes longer using T1 lasers, or aame as before with ORE versions, to gain all available ore. Otherwise you use T2 to get same amounts or more for old times or a little better, but loose a bit of the bonus ore.
