There are lots of systems virtually untouched, just they're not next to the hubs, try them, there are quite a few in Gallente space.

Please help us mine all the moon sized Veld roids in Nennamaila !
Just x up in local and there will be plenty of helping hands that will haul your Veld of epic porportions in guarded convoys back to station.

Ha ha! Americans think they have it bad now?

Just wait until daylight savings finishes in 9 days time. All the belts in empire will be stripped within two hours of downtime once the Australian hordes get two hours of EVE in prime time instead of one Twisted Evil

Seriously, as others have said, if you are still mining in the standard belts you ARE doing it wrong.

There are huge amounts of ore in the following places...

  1. Cosmic anomalies, very easy to find. Look for one called Guristas Burrow, been finding those all over Caldari high sec and it yields about 13M Trit

  2. Gravimetric exploration sites. Bit harder to find and quite often full of Omber (meh, I remember when Omber was at least double the value of Veldspar)

  3. Missions

Options 1 and 3 take almost no effort. If you can't be arsed to do that then don't expect to come whining on here and get any sympathy.

Solution: put downtime smack bang in the middle of a US TZ prime time. Suits me and half of the rest of the world very nicely.

And why are asteroids always so nicely arranged in arc fashion - can't asteroid belts also be clouds of rock?

That's actually the usual formation in 0.0. Though I have seen non-arced belts in high sec as well.

I've seen more random-spawned belts than arc belts in 0.0. When I find a small arced belt I grin and squeal in glee. I can hover in the middle and mine EVERYTHING /cackle.

PS: For empire and in Caldari space, Hayuken (I believe the system is called, possibly/probably wrong) has a ton of belts. Gogo

It would be nice if gravimetric sites had more than just a bunch of stupid omber. Seed more veldspar or at least scordite sites, plz.

Julia.. the problem isn't time, it's place. Got to any other empire/region out of Caldari empire, and you will not have any problem finding nice rich 'roid belts that you can happi;y mine on for hours unditirbed (except for belt rats).

Heck, I just moved to a new region a couple of weeks ago.. and the difference is HUGE. A lot fewer pirates and players, a lot more rock that you can mine to your hearts (and wallet's) content. Not to far from me is a 0.7 system wioth over 50 (yes, FIFTY!) belts. Even with a team of Hulks and Orca's, You probably couldn't mine it all in a day. So, move out, look around, and mine on!

Personally, I am getting sick of spending the entire time that I have to play Eve, travelling from system to system trying to find minable fields. I have played this game since beta back in 2004, and watched the community grow and grow to the size it is today, whilst the available ore has not. Additionally, the game is full of gold farmers, exploiting the game by running multiple accounts at once using macros.
CCP really need to rethink a few things about this game now. Since Eve came into fruition, they have had a generally safe and comfortable time, due to the lack of rival games in the same setting, sure theres been a few, but they have been pretty poor in comparison to Eve so far. Now, 2009 see's the release of at least three rival MMO's, all of which are looking pretty good so far, lots of depth and thought in them ect.
Whilst I dont relish the idea of starting again with a new Space MMO, I hate even more having to waste my playing time searching around for somewhere that I can mine, and if CCP are not going to do anything about this problem then I am faced with the choice of...
A- Spending a lot of time training additional skills to take my character in a completely different direction away from mining, like for instance PVP.
B- Trying out the free trials on the said upcoming releases and picking the most suitable one and paying them a monthly fee instead of CCP.
At this stage I certainly am not saying any of the upcoming games will be better than Eve, only trying them out will show that.
But it is wakey wakey time for CCP because the slumber is well and truly over, there are a few new sheriffs in town, all wanting to prove themselves and if CCP are not careful, New Eden will need to be renamed to Dead Space.

Move out of Todaki. Hell hath no fury like an army of Bantams and AFK Badgers.

There are plenty of untouched systems on the Empire Fringe.

I pretty much have a station to myself in a 0.9 sec system, At most I've only ever seen 5 others in this station. As a result theres a round the clock supply of Dense/Conc Veld in the system belts and in the neighbouring systems which are also quiet.

Open your map, find a quiet region - move to it.

Simple as.

Rancer has all the best belts

These places have heaps of untouched Veldspar: Mordus Folly, Infiltrated Outposts, Break Their Will. Go, find these places and you'll be happy!

Remember, deadspaces hang around after hand-in until the last person has left them. Even better, if the mission-running side of your corp has a bunch of people farming a number of missions each day, the belt will be around for a week.

What happened to the idea to replace the current "belts" with a REAL belt spanning the whole star system, containing lots of fun stuff, including priate bases, ancient relics, valuable ore deep within the belt and lots of other fancy stuff - oh and the need to use your ship scanners to find anything??!?!??!??!??!

American player, and no complaints about downtime or lack of rocks to bust. Like so many before have said, move away from the high pop systems. I'm currently mining in four systems within three jumps of one of my corp offices. Usually not many of us there, and if there is no or little ore in one system, I can easily find a few belts untouched in the other systems I have mapped out. Worst case scenario, I undock my Ferox and run a couple missions until I find some ore, or scan down a site. Don't give the Euros onther reason to call us all fat, lazy Americans please.

Posted - 2009.04.16 14:27:00 - [51]

I mine in a system that is only 5 jumps from Jita.... there is lots of veldspar and scordite left over even an hour before reset. You just have to look around.
