A thought to make it impossible to AFK this: Have outgassing events from the comet that create toxic clouds behind and extending out from the central axis of the comet.

Make them do enough dps to wipe out a ship following (or orbiting) AFK in one hit to stop the possibility of a player having a logi following the miner to keep it alive. An active pilot should be able to manually pilot around the cloud, AFK or not paying attention would evaporate your ship if hit. Nothing like a sense of danger to improve the fun factor :)

The more people hitting the comet with lasers, the more frequent the outgassing events due to the core heating up.

I Wouldn't have It Kill The Ships But Difinately Deal Quite A Bit Of Damage

If it doesn't kill the ships likely to be used for this outright then you could have a logi follow your mining ship at a safe distance and throw enough rep at it to keep it alive AFK. Only total destruction in the event of a screw up would introduce any true level of risk (much like the standard and superior sleeper caches...make a mistake and it's bye-bye ship...)

To make mining a comet even more interesting perhaps CCP would be so brilliant in developing a new race that lives on a comet and harvests its resources. As the comet wanders around the Universe the inhabitants would periodically leave the safety of the comet to raid the solar systems that the comet is passing through using advanced cloaking devices to avoid detection except for when they are attacking.

No new race, just dust bunnies...
(to further clarify: create an interactive industry for Dust514 and EVE)

Five drones that act like resource collector in pi, constantly moving heads around for max harvesting.
Skills give efficient resource collection, there are always extraction losses.

I like this idea.

By the way, this part of the forums does not allow bumping. Please post some actual content if you want to keep the conversation going.

CCP should add more NPC 0.0 space to open it up and liven things up: the Stepping Stones project.

a new structure could be made that attracts comets into your system...

its not a bad idea. You could have the harvesting Array have a cometary capture mechanic. But what would the comet give us in resources that we don't already get. And what would be the point?

The idea would give access to the various elements of moon mining, PI etc but in a way that requires active piloting and can't be farmed by parking exhumers on it en-mass (hence the general opinion being that these shouldn't be capturable).

The idea is to get pilots in space chasing down a more valuable resource and competing/fighting for it in an already dangerous environment
