I remember a time when there were no ore holds, be thankful for what you have.

On a general note, when you sit an look at it, most of the cargo space in EvE does seem to be a bit arbitrary given what is likely to go into it.

Just that little reminder about the nature of this perfectly imperfect sandbox.

As this post is about the capacity of the ore hold of the skiff should it not be posted under 'ships and modules' thread?

I expect to get this post deleted or locked. So much for freedom of expression.

I must be internet jaded then, because as silly as evo-GD can be, it's not nearly as bad as only many common forums on the internet, imo. It is worse than the Hello Kitty Island Adventure forum I frequent, though, I'll give you that.

Use an endurance.

Oh, I perfectly understand, Hal Morsh — a mission like this requires courage, skill, and heroism… qualities you are clearly lacking. Have you forgotten you're one of the bloody immortals!?

Make the hold something ridiculous (14.9k m3 or 15.1k m3, perhaps) and leave the speed as it is, just to make OP and people like him grumble more.

Have you ever seen drone ship unable to use their drone bandwidth because of 'strange' sized drone holds? Nope? Wondering why?

What if we set drone holds of some ships to 24m3 instead of 25? Would be pretty funny isn't it? I'm sure you would be happy Lol

Keep 1k of some other ore in your skiff's ore bay. Now it has an effective size of 14k. The other ore will be in a different stack, so you needn't jet it when you jet your ice stack.

Don't do ice (yet) but strip miners yield cut in half but we got another slot but then the big role bonus was rolled back. So we're doing a little more work for a little less yield but hey, we got one helluva snazzy paint job, and it's growing on me. No complaint here.

Big whoop. So you have to disable a strip miner during the last mining cycle. That's no different from my Mackinaw with a 35,000m3 hold and two strip miners for ice.

Mining already requires a ton of micro managing. This increases that. So without canning my options are to watch and kill it when the hold hits 14 or wait for another cycle on one laser to get 15 and go.


As a dedicated miner myself, I call bull spit. Mining doesn't take much micromanaging at all.

Mackinaw pilots have had to deal with 2 ice harvester but a 35,000m3 ore bay for years.

Nothing. Mining being such a spectacularly exciting activity I don't mind watching my three toons like a hawk waiting for that exact moment for the lasers to fill the 14K. I mean who ever mines semi afk???


Why "watch like a hawk"? With a 15K hold if you let run the laser too long you at least get 1 a unit of ice in return. If you hate missing cycles you still have to watch like a hawk your 3 toons, so I don't see how something has changed.

Thanks for making me embarrassed to be a miner. Actually I love seeing lazy miners because I'm not one and I really discourage lazy miners in my corp. So I know we'll beat the lazy ones in the market place!

Allright.

Here is your serious solution.

Jettison ONE block to round it out.

Fly back to station, off load, and return Exactly to that spot.
(You will want to anyway unless your Ice Chunk was depleted.)

Scoop that one block.

Now you are all rounded out, and all you are risking is a single block of ice for less than a few minutes.



Christ, I have a bigger timing micro-management challenge in filling the hulks hold too fast before i can jettison again.





I wouldn't bring entitled sounding problems to these forums unless you are bolting on some serious thick skin.

Getting out of trees is easy enough - just let go and gravity will help you out.

The dead swans lay in the stagnant pool. They lay. They rotted. They turned Around occasionally. Bits of flesh dropped off them from Time to time. And sank into the pool's mire. They also smelt a great deal.
