Since I dont found that anywhere...

It would be realy cool if refineries can mine after the moon chunk explodes.
Like some special long range laser miners?Tube for mining drones?

1.Refinery is miner station right?
2.It would look really cool.
3. The person in station can join the mining OP not just sit and watch :-)
4.Be fine for smaller corporations(and dont argue join bigger one bheee bhee,what if you wanna play just with your few friends?and we all know there is a lot a lot of stations owned by just "one man corps"
5.Drillll mineee powaaa!

Not against mining drones. They can be shot.

No mining lasers that are protected by massive structure hp and timers.

EVE FAQ "7.2 CAN I AVOID PVP COMPLETELY? No; there are no systems or locations in New Eden where PvP may be completely avoided"

Daichi Yamato's version of structure based decs

Drones:So?Thats good for those who wanna shot something no?

Mining laser:Why?Its just mining laser and no weapon, it cant do harm to you.And it can mine just once a weak at best.
Or is it just because you need to kill "that damn miner"? Then its like no docking at all because I cant kill that guy in the ship inside.....

Why not?Nobody talks about some incredible mineing power, just like retriver will be fino or something like that...balance anyway always lie on CCP to do the numbers.

How about external mining platforms with automated long-range strip miners?

50% mineral loss, but at least you get something.

Far less HP, can be destroyed without having to go through the refinery-kill process first.

i would not be opposed to mining drones.

i have to echo the no mining lasers on the station for the reason that no one should be able mine in complete safety

Yes drones should be OK because drones are drones :P

But the platform...hmmm thats kinda interestening idea.
It should be like this:
When you go online,take control of station and have the moon part crushed to belt and decide to mine.
You will akcivate the mine platform with miners and it begins to deploy...long..like 10-15min.
The platform will be vulnerable like all ships in low/null.
Mineral loss is not good idea,its a station specialzied on mining right?
So..the platform will mine quite good amount....but the catch will be...it will have long cycle.Like I dunno 7 mins.
So when the attack come,you will need to deside.Is the attack dangerous enought so I should hide the platform?or I should finish the mine cycle of the expensive moon ore first? >:-)
Anyway the redeploy/hideing of the platform will be slow again like 10-15 min.
The platform should have decent hitpoints, becasue its slow heavy chunk of station right?The modul will be propably expnensive etc....and you need decent damage to kill it.Its like you wont try to kill Rorqual in a frigate right?

That maybe should work :-)
