Hope to hear a(ny) thing about it during fanfest Cool

A) mining simulator B) glorified chatroom C) spreadsheets online

I think the ring mining still hold merit as well as the comets.

Originally, the idea was to have ice, roids, and moon goo scattered throughout the rings.

An entire planet surrounded by an asteroid belt, in which skilled pilots could hunt out the moon goo and Ice.

I would like to see both ideas revisited.

it is sad that this great idea has been abandoned for so long, and that it's already been nearly 2 years since DaReaper brought it up again here. Nothing new to add from me, except that I support this idea!

About the comet speed:

Either you assume that the mining ships can keep up with the comet and your ship only has a relative speed to the grid (like they do at the moment, because you can stay next to a planet at the moment, right ? (ok planets don't move at the moment, but you know they do, otherwise they would really quick add to the mass of the sun and crash your PI ^^ )), in which case you do mining at a comet site with whatever effects CCP decides to bring to you (pirates, gas explosions, dust lowering targeting range, ...)


CCP decides that the comets move at whatever speed, in which case you have to chase them with your mining ship. Given the fact that the average mining ship is really slow, you either have to create a new mining ship for comet mining that can keep up with the comet or move the comet at a really slow speed.

My suggestion is, that you make a new module for industrial command ships that anchors the surrounding ships at the comet (think of it like a bastion module). Maybe requires some fuel to keep up to the comet.

The module should have a radius in which the ships are anchored to the roid (maybe bigger radius for the rorqual) but can still move , everything leaving the radius will see the anchored ships flying away at comet speed.
