Im seeing a lot of blogs about everyone moaning about macro miners.
why doesnt CCP make it harder for them to get around this and more fun for miners at the same time. this could be easly achived by changeing the way mining is done. My idea would go like this1.
Miner warps to the belt. 2.
Miner Sellects the Ore he wish's to mine.3.
For each Rock Selected a new small window opens 2"sq in a Random spot on the screen, by doing this makes it harder for a macro to select it in the same spot all the time, in this box the selected rock apears and a overlay simular to the PI Scanning interface with hot and cold spots apears.4.
Miner selects the Hot spot by pin pointing the area in the 2" Ore selction box.
selecting the hot spot mining is done at normal speed per cycle.
selecting a cold spot reduces the mineing time, or this could be changed to Ore Qty's.
5. Miner Starts to mine until roid is gone.
by making the ore which is selected apear in random areas with a chance to mine random amounts/times this would make Macro mining much harder.
Just an idea
