Re: To Orbit or not to orbit that is the question

Set CODE. and the other ganker corps/alliances as red and use the local chat scan feature, if anyone red jumps in you dock up. Orbiting is really personal preference.

Re: Need some help

..or an Orca since you are working on mining drones 5. It mines slightly faster than a Mackinaw and hauls a TON more ore so fewer trips back to unload.

Re: Warp to Zero and MWD's

The MWD accelerates you faster and after the 10 second cycle time you are going faster than your 75% native speed and go into warp instantly once the mwd shuts off. This works for most ships but not all. If TM hits it once you are still accellerating to your mwd 75% speed and take more than 10s to w...

Warp to Zero and MWD's

As it is the warp to zero macro will not hit your MWD twice to allow you to warp faster in a ship like the orca or other haulers. I think this would be a great addition to help make trips across empire a bit faster.

Re: Gankers List

Any time before setting up in a new system search killboards for mining ship kills... also as the OP hinted to just add the corps or alliances to your contacts, save you a lot of time and effort.

Re: what do you mine.

For the most safety, which would be even safer if VG let us use both the local and directional scanner, is to place a few BM's on the outside of the belt, the side opposite the warp in. A potential aggressor would have to fly a ways to get within range of you. If you have the directional scanner set...

Re: What Isk/hour can you achieve using TinyMiner?

You are not at your full potential.... I was mining in a 0.7 system making 14-15 mil per hour gate mining to boot. This is two loads in the mackinaw per hour. Tooltip on the cargo hold says 7.x mil isk every load. Mine scordite or pyrox if you aren't already. If you are I'd need more info on why you...

Re: Max Yield with TM + double client + orca boost

I use macks for tM and Hulks when I mine manually in anything from 0.5 to 1.0 space. In 0.5 a minor tank and a set of 5 drones will keep a mackinaw safe as long as it doesnt get stuck in the belt after picking up the drones, a moderate tank on a mack and it can tank the rats indefinately.

CCP's new war on bots - revisited and some other suggestions

Many years ago I was dead set against bot mining and used to play lots of pranks on bot miners but never reported them because if they got banned I wouldnt have anyone to play my pranks on. I learned a few ways to detect if they were a bot and got to the point where I could tell if a miner was using...

Re: What Isk/hour can you achieve using TinyMiner?

With a Mack in 0.5 system station mining with no Orca boosting I am pulling about 15mil per hour before refining. Now if I got my exhumer skill from 3 to 5 and added a 5% implant then moved my orca pilot down..... hehe

Re: Optimal TM settings for Mackinaw?

When boosted I run half cycles or 60s and then adjust the number of cycles based on how much I fill each time. This will be based on your individual miners skills. I do use the 80% feature to help fill the ship a little more if I run into a lot of tiny rocks that go poof early. It also depends on if...
