Re: Escaping from "Raznaborg Damavik" ?

It all depends how far are the drones at the moment when you recall them. If they are 20km away or more and busy fighting a distant rat then they won't have enough time to come back and will be left behind if the ship doesn't wait for them. Then you won't have any more drones so you're back to squar...

Re: Escaping from "Raznaborg Damavik" ?

There are some things you can try although at the end of the day a Venture can only do so much. It helps if you could watch the program running for a while and see how it performs when the triglavians arrive in belt! 1. Do not use drones at all. This way you can eliminate the time wasted to wait for...

A skiff can manage the triglavian rats just fine as well. If you're using weaker ships then just configure the program to warp to another belt as soon as it detects rats in the Overview.

Re: Mining drones??

Well, generally, mining drones add very little compared to strip mining lasers so you are better off using combat drones to kill those pesky rats instead. Mining drones are very much worth it for the Orca though. An Orca with mining drones is comparable with a Retriever barge in terms of mining yield.

If you could post a screenshot when you are undocked I could take a look and maybe spot what's wrong with your setup.

Re: Problem with mixed drones while in a fleet

Not many people are using mixed drones while in a fleet so I can't say this is a priority, especially since the bug is mainly with Eve reversing the menu order than it is with the bot. You could use only mining drones instead of mixing them with combat drones and have the Orca's drones on assist def...

Re: Jet Can Mining

Jettison cans have a very small capacity so it wouldn't make sense to use the same can not to mention that it wouldn't be always within range for unloading if your ship keeps moving. So TinyMiner will jettison a new can at the end of each mining run!

Re: Problem with mixed drones while in a fleet

Try reversing the order of who starts the fleet and invites the other player to join his squad. That may be a determining factor in changing the order of menu options... Other than that I don't really know.

Yes I've witnessed this strange issue myself on a few occasions.

Most of the time these options are in the correct order so if they are not you could simply re-log...
