So, my botting goes well. I run 3 accounts; one mackinaw (mining Scordite) and two retrievers (one Veldspar, one Plagioclase). The mackinaw pilot has mining foreman up to 5, everything's going swimmingly.

Except that I mine minerals far faster than I can transport them to a trade hub for sale!

I made a spreadsheet that takes the current prices of minerals at jita, another hub close to me, and my main station. Then, using Red Frog Freight's pricing, it determines whether it'd be better to ship the minerals to Jita, or the closer hub, or just sell them where I am. But I lose *huge* amounts of profits to RFF doing this.

I experimented with having the miners start delivering minerals to the closer trade hub when they run out of asteroids that day, but this means 23/7 uptime which I'm trying to avoid so I don't get banned.

How do you guys transport your minerals?

Did you try to install POS and mine directly to compression array? You dont need faction standing to anchor POS in empire now.

just compress ore, or install sell orders right where you mine it. Compressing is better, but requre some manual attention.
