I think y'all dropped the ball on this one. I didn't see where you stated ~980m3 ore yield with max skills till after I got the Porpoise...

I just turned around and docked it up... Waste of isk to purchase. The ship is pointless.

Boost range is way too low. ~35km vs ~150 in the rorq. WHAT? Not even 1/3 of the rorq...

The mining amount is just laughable... I mean you give the rorq the ability to mine ~30,000m3 per cycle with max skills, but the Porpoise again doesn't even get a third of that? Pathetic!!!

For those of us without an alt miner, the ONLY decision is to get a rorqual anymore... It's like mining with a 8 man fleet in just one ship...

Rorq on the way!!!

Okay then by all means, tell us how you squeezed your rorqual into a c13 hole.

Eve Minions is recruiting.

This is the law of ship progression!

This is one of the most important points.

It's also a _significantly_ lower investment. around 85 million, against 2.4 billion.

Woo! CSM XI!

What's laughable is expecting a 60m T1 subcap *boosting ship* to mine more than an Exhumer, let alone 1/3rd of a Rorqual when the Rorqual costs 3B and has to field another 5B or so in mining drones to mine that much. Seriously did you not even look at the ship before buying it?!?!

Just because you don't want to use this ship (or an Orca, apparently) don't say it's pointless without thinking at all.

Lots of lube? Lol

I mean, you *could* build one in there, but.... yeah, lol.

I've just got a Porpoise, and I'm pleased. I've got some skills to max yet, but even with T1 drones the yield is good, fleet boosting is very good, its useful for hauling ore and salvaging. I love the drone capacity especially.

It'll pay for itself in no time, so I think the guys have got it spot on this time.

The first upgrade to the Porpoise is to have its four high slots replaced with a single strip miner slot as well as giving it a small ore, ice and gas compression bay.

None of the other boosting ships get mining lasers, there's no reason for this one to.

Also "compression bay" is... not something that exists? Those jobs are A. instantaneous and B. can now be done in a Citadel.

Also you've provided zero justification for why these things are balanced or necessary on a 60m ISK ship whose primary value is in its cheap boosting capability.
