It was basically that you would mine planetary rings and as way to get moon goo. i think it was building on the old concept from exodus of ;system wide asteroid belts' as for comet mining my idea is below

OMG Comet Mining idea!!! Comet Mining!

As for on grid boosting, it's going to be talked about. I have a discussion topic up about it.





Thanks Steve !

I hope that the only change is not just the citadel things in the fall/winter....though I am looking forward to that. I had always hoped that the concept of ring/comet mining would remove the passive nature of goo and allow CCP to seed other types of goo throughout null and make it interactive vs passive. With new citadels offering up new taxation options for alliances and corps, I can only hope they move in this direction.

Cheers.

If they're still in the "durrr I like turtles" phase on that subject, please tell us so we know what not to play this summer.

Didn't read entire thread, but there are going to be drilling platforms. So there's that.

Also, is there a meaning to a "ring mining" besides it being a buzzword for "mining that will suck not"? Was there some sort of meaningful prototype at least?

I heard the idea a while ago about comet mining, the idea would be there's a trail of gas behind the comet to be mined, an outer layer of ice, an inner layer of minerals, then moon goo at the core. It travels at 1000 m/s, so it needs to be webbed to slow it down, and damages ships that get too close. Needs to be scanned down to find

It was promised? Link?


Yeah, that was not promised more like ccp Greyscale dreaming out loud. Had this crazy idea of cities in space too. Structures you could link to each other building your own customized space city that would be able to move too!Shocked

Ring mining sounded more feasible and a good option to replace what's mining now.

Ring mining was actually proposed as a solution to Moon Goo being a "money printer". I think that with the reduction to the necessity of the goo that has subsequently reduced it's value, ring mining is probably on the back burner since the situation has been mostly resolved.
