    hello I wanted to know if it is possible to have a kind of marker on each asteroid that we have already scanned with the drone prospector because when you mine an asteroid that you do not have to explode like opal its to become enervant to fall back on the same asteroid that is empty or already...

    T-10 Mining?

    Haven’t played for ages because the FSS sucks so hard. Getting an FC is a goal that might get me playing again. Mining is the current credit meta and doesn’t need the FSS. Before 3.3 dropped I bought a T-10 for mining but hadn’t fitted it out yet. Is it good for deep core mining or should I use...

    Suicidal collector limpets

    Can we PLEASE change how collector behave, or make them much more durable? I literally just spent 3 limpets per painite collected, because they always just went face-first into the nearby rocks. Some of them even got some painite stuck INSIDE the rocks, making them unreachable... (This is an...

    Mining fighters

    Either create mining specific fighters out allow for the loadout if fighters to be changed to include mining equipment. Imagine being able to use your cutter to scan for deep core asteroids, find one with a prospector limpet, then launch your mining fighter, place charges while your cutter...

    Mining in Wing Bugged / Seismic Charges Not Functioning Properly

    When the new mining system was introduced I had no issue mining while in a wing. Now, when deep core mining, seismic charges for at least one player do not function properly while in a wing. Upon launching a seismic charge into a fissure, there is no countdown and no graph. It is as if the...

    Void Opal sell off price cap changed?

    So early this morning I got up to finish the rest of my mining and went to to locate the nearest high selling market for void opals. I went to three different markets that were newest update for high selling prices to find that all three markets were capped at 754k and they were exactly...

    HP Loadout 4 Mining

    If you had two medium hard points for a mining rig, which two are the best/fastest? I'm not a big fan of pre-3,3 mining, yet thought I'd give the new system a go. Thanks.

    Make Pirate Attack awesome!

    The way Pirate Attacks work right now thy are pretty much meaningless. Just a place that has a good price for diamonds with no good explanation and no effect on the players. So i have a suggestion to make these truely mean something and justify the high reward for Void Opals there. This is...

    For large ships: Ship-Launched Mining Craft.

    I’d be surprised if this hasn’t been suggested before, but I’m not gonna dig through pages of suggestions to find out. Title says it all, really: large ships, such as the Anaconda, and especially the Type-9 Heavy, could benefit greatly from being able to deploy ship-launched fighters equipped...

    Mining Ships

    With the considerable work put into mining mechanics, and the resurgent popularity of prospecting in the game, I thought it time to revisit the old suggestion of having ships designed for mining, just as we do for exploration, trading, combat, and multi-roles. I'd like to see at least one...

    Type 7 needs a Medium hardpoint!

    With the new "gold rush" of mining, both the super-valuable void opals and just general core mining being great, it's now a very viable gameplay style for both new and old players. But with some of my newer friends to the game starting out, i've noticed there's two awkward holes in progression...

    Ship Launched Miner?

    With mining being a ton more enjoyable thanks to the recent changes, it's still lacking a little bit in the multicrew department. Collector limpets are all well and good, but moving an Anaconda around an exposed asteroid core to get an abrasion blaster hit, that's pretty annoying. Hell it's even...

    Prospectors crash into ship too easily

    In 3.3, prospector limpets gained a collision box, making it possible for them to collide with objects like your own ship on launch. This, in itself, is fine. Before 3.3, you could have the limpet phase through the canopy easily by just looking down after firing them, and that did look weird...

    Turn off proximity warning for limpets

    The proximity warning would be an useful and immersive tool for miners to try and avoid bumping into things outside of their field of vision, however, collector limpets constantly trigger the warning when near. This makes the proximity warning useless for its actual purpose, as it's active...

    Ship Builds & Load Outs Giving a Python a shot at Mining - Configuration review please

    Hi Folks, I'm changing things up a bit and going to pause grinding for Explorer Elite in exchange for some mining fun. I picked up a Python and outfitted it in a manner that "feels" right, but since I'm a noob at mining, I thought I'd put it out there for suggestions. If you're a miner and...

Some of us either do not want or, for...

    Mining Fighters

    I know Elite may need a few more fixes to other things rather than more features, but I think mining could be improved by having SLF with mining loadouts. This way Large motherships like T9s, Cutters, and Anacondas can easier destroy and extract materials from asteroids without worrying about...

    Hello there, As a miner player, I find the new mining system really cool.

But most of...

You find a Asteroid with Void Opals (might also happen with other rare materials) and you blow it up. The as...
