I think some things need to be addressed with ice mining!

1) ice mining drones

2) why doesnt ice rocks get depleted at some point!!

3)why cant the amount that is mined more like ore instead of big chunks there is wasted cargo space
not to mention when you have to leave ina hurry you might not get anything in the end!!

4) why not more variations of turrets!!

what do you think, remember i am new to eve :)

@ OP: Ice minig is fine the way it is imo, turn it the way u sugjest and it would be just another "ore" to mine. No need to make them the sane.

"Don't do a job a robot can do for you"

Mine minerals and buy ice if you need it. The problem isn't with the yield amount or ice mining in general. The system is good enough (though there should be a limit on how much ice each roid has). The problem is that for so long botters were able to get away with mining ice 24/7 so the price of ice has steady gone down to the point of having very little profit.

If CCP stays on top of banning bots the price will rise again after a few months and it will be worth mining again.

The answer to that is ice belts are not going to be removed from high-sec. That idea was proposed by CCP Soundwave a while back but has been dropped and is not official policy.

Back to the OP I think ice mining as well as ore mining are fine as they are and do not need any work doing on them. There is possibly a case for introducing depletion of ice fields although with the current CCP war on bots that may not be needed now.

ice mining sux bad enough now ..why do ppl always complain about things like this? if you think something is an easy way to make isk do it !! don't complain about it. never spend another mans money go make your own. and for the rest of you there is no such thing as too much money.
