TOPIC: Mining Drone implementation

Mining Drone implementation 8 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 1
This mining bot is at the moment the best on the market (and i know all of them), especially mining of most valuable stuff first, change of systems to miner if no longer profitable, auto relog after system crash and daily downtime. Very good !

Only weakness i found is that you cant use mining drones with your barge and exhumers.

Anything in development ?

I have made several posts on this subject already. What is use of mining drones if they are constantly killing by npcs? Or do you want me to check each drone HP like I do for a ship and dock drones on damage? Also there was a bug in eve (long ago although) when drones did not stay in the same drone group after undock and bot had to check if drones are in the required groups. I tried to add drones 2 or 3 years ago, but the code did not work stable.

In general this is true, but please implement nevertheless

If you implement a "refill mining drone" you mustnot care about drone damage or loss, if one is killed you just refill another one from the ships cargo hold(or station hangar) during the next station stop.

You must not combine this function with combat drones as in highsec the shields of a barge/exhumer are by far strong enough to deal with NPC damage. So maybe is doable.

It would really maximize the mining result

I agree with Karma.

I for instance only mine in highsec there are no rats so i dont have to fear getting my drones killed.

Mining drone implemantation would be awesome!

Would also love mining drone support!
I just started using the bot (only in hi-sec) so fear of rats is non existent. A simple algorithm to launch the drones and have them mine a rock like you would normally do would be awesome.

Also, I'd imagine having them go back to drone bay before warping would be implemented.
