Before we can improve mining we first have to improve the miner, and we are working on that 23.5/7. We will come back to you once we feel that all miners are in a state where they can handle such a change.

Donations to speed up the process are always welcome and can be sent directly to James 315 or to a New Order Agent of your liking.

Meh, a good bunch of the miners don't even care about losing their ships or use Skiff, the other half mine at the keyboard with efficient ships and get annoyed by you most of the time (I can relate to this, ganked once, learned for life to use a mackinaw aligned with higgs).

Calm down miner. As you pointed out, people think they can get away with stuff they would not in rl... Like for example illegal mining... - Ima Wreckyou*

Perhaps CCP should try replicating the "multi-box" experience for solo miners to make it more engaging. Instead of having 2 turrets, make it 6 (with less yield, of course). Miners will be required to strategise their mining lasers in order to avoid dead cycles.

Not sure about that, if the yield would became divided in 6 or more turrets, the yield of a individual turret will be so low that a dead cycle will be limited to a small amount, a longer cycle time could do the trick maybe.

But why not for the first sentence, a sort of small mining carrier able to use some fighter sized mining drones could be neat for a end to the mining profession.

I enjoy mining, it's something I can do that doesn't require my constant attention. It's a more relaxing way to earn isk. If I wanted action I'd do missions.

Apart from numerous simple (and stupid, IMHO) suggestions like buff yield of lazers, mining drones, ships or rorquals, I like those completely new approaches. They ensure more effective mining through pilot activity, not through plain "more m3 per hour cause I have bigger ship/laser"
Comet mining: fast movable mineable objects, that need to be scanned down, reqiure manually piloting to stay close and avoid toxic cloud

Mining probes and planet ring mining: probe down the proper place in planet ring, where you can mine, requires manually piloting to avoid collision with random moving piece of rock.

Multi Ore, Multi Methods: asteroids change during the process of mining it, requires manual adjusting of minig beam to ensure reasonable efficiency of mining laser, you can follow veins, etc

The way I look at it, every miner that ends up in a Procurer is one more miner that has at least made the conscious decision to not do the stupid thing.

Baby steps, man. You have to understand that these people are not used to any kind of decision involving actual gameplay. You gotta ease 'em into it, like a latex gimp suit.

seriously CODE, please just leave the thread, we all know you all would be happier if nothing was player made and it all just magically spawned out of no where, like every other game out there.
We are talking about wanting to revamp mining as a whole, not just in highsec, so please, if you are not going to actively contribute, then please just leave and let other people with actual imput to the topic at hand have a decent and rational conversation.

EDIT:- Lets get back on topic here, this isn't about using procurers or skiffs in highsec, or CODE's circle jerking.

Huh, a miner who chose to fly in a procurer in highsec after a gank is a miner who lost against Code. , not the other way around. A industrialist will always need to choose the best tool for the job, the procurer/skiff being for beginners or nullsec/wormhole solo.

That's not true at all, I personally take great delight in the player controlled economy. Many of the more dedicated and successful industrial players I know back CODE, what's more.

Making an entire post about us sure doesn't help your case. It's not a circle jerk if other people keep insisting on joining in. Then it's just an impromptu orgy.

I agree whole heartedly.

Mining should be updated so it's impossible to AFK it, that is all.

EDIT : The previous posters are correct. If you actually know how to mine / do industry safely then it is in your best interest to support CODE, who will inflate mineral value by preying on the stupid / uneducated.

I call BS, if that was true, why go after miners then? because without miners nothing gets made, AFK miners are a problem, agreed, but one that should be sorted out with a revamp to mining, not ganking them in highsec and acting like your the best.

My post was a response to about 5 CODE people coming in and completely derailing the thread, so with that said, can we PLEASE, get back on topic here, and talk about what changes should happen to mining.

Scale and sheer volume, how many mission would you have to run to get enough ore to build a battleship, or a carrier?

not really, whats it matter to you how someone else plays the game? they are doing a vital service that keeps the game turning.
I mine everything, gas, ore and ice. I also do PvP, who cares how i play? why dont you CODE people mind your own crap and stay out of how other people play?
