TOPIC: Corp Bookmarking Miners

Re: Corp Bookmarking Miners 7 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 16
So, I think the issue is this: miner drops a BM every 20 minutes (enough for a can or two). Orca looter comes, hoovers up 3-4 BM's worth of cans. It'll still go back to those old BMs and check the (now empty) belt. It has slowed the looter down to the point where it can't get to the new BMs before the cans pop. I'm trying to think of a reasonable way to cut down on it without leaving cans to rot... maybe once when it arrives, once every hour, and again when it leaves? Would that be prohibitive to workout, you think?

How many miners you have?

One issue I do know about has to do with alphabetization of numbered bookmarks. Sometimes I would find that 9:59 would not be deleted until the end because it comes after 10:00. That is one reason why I tried 25 minutes.

7 at the moment.

That's an issue, to be sure. Could you code 09:59 to come before 10:00?

So yes, upon more review, it looks like the looter spends a lot of time warping back and forth between already-emptied belts, and can't clear them fast enough. Later tonight I'll have some better numbers on the effect on yield.

Well, I would recommend setting the bookmarks to 55 minutes to minimize redundant ones. Once the Networked Tank mode works (miners are currently warping out unnecessarily in high sec.), then it'll be easy because you can just have the tank set BMs. When tank mode is totally working then I guess this mod won't be needed?

I will do that and report back. I might tweak the algorithm itself as well to make it drop a BM for when it leaves the belt as well (if yours already does not do that).

That's assuming you will want all your miners in the same belt, though. 7 miners will be hard to balance if I'm using T2 crystals. Until we can get boosts working, I definitely want them in separate belts so they don't need to worry about switching belts or shooting the same rocks. We shall see!

It SHOULD already BM right before it leaves a belt. If it doesn't, then the BookmarkBelt.AHK should be swapped with the BookmarkCan.AHK in the algorithm.

Since Tankmode uses synched personal bookmarks, I'm thinking about putting half of the miner's BMs on the opposite side of the belt so they meet in the middle.
