I have a suggestion for possible feature/addon to the noctis.

Perhaps we could have an auto loot option that is only available via he noctis. So when I activate a salvager on the noctis it will automatically place loot from the wreck in the noctis cargo hold.

This can even be done via a skill or perhaps via a auto loot module fitted to the noctis ?

Do you also want to legalize botting or you just want to drive salvage value down?

How does loot (modules, alloys, ammo) drive down salvage value exactly?

That said, I'm against this, if only because it decreases the risks (minimal as they may be, especially in highsec) associated with this activity, without a matching decrease in the rewards.

Not supported.

Oh god yes, I was thinking this yesterday while salvaging.
Need either a module, skill, bonus to ship. But we need it! A noctis is a ship made for this purpose, as much I love having one, and thanks ccp in finally getting round to making it, it feels like it isnt finished without such an option.

You would still have to go fetch your noctis and fly to mission area.

Step currently.
1.Target each wreck
2.Tractor each wreck
3.loot wreck (involves open a can selecting all and dragging)
4.Salvage wreck

Suggestion effect
1. Target each wreck
2. Tractor each wreck
3. Salvage each wreck
4. Repeat.

It only cuts out the open wreck, select all, drag drop section.

If there is huge botting exploit I am missing sorry (explain).
If you love open 40 wrecks and select all drag and drop don't support it the suggestion.

Now if you have constructive criticism I'll listen but driving down salvage prices is bull*,
I don't have to loot to salvage so won't affect salvage. The only thing it will affect is sub tech II module prices perhaps and perhaps mineral market which could use a shot in the arm after CCP clamp down on Bots.

An even better solution, imo, would be if it was possible to assign keyboard hotkeys for quickly opening a wreck/container and moving the contents to your ship's cargo hold. Select the wreck, press your "loot all" hotkey, and then your salvager hotkey.

(1) yer lazy... I hope they take away the F keys so you have to actually click on each wreck from now on.

(2) My 2nd FAV pastime in EVE (1st bein' tryin to learn how to better asplode people) is Noctisising...
It should take SOME work to do... or do you wanna bot like all those effing miners who AFK mine??

(3) Actually I DO hope they make your Noctis... but ONLY yours, do as you ask... so one day you start in on some wrecks and a few what don't belong to you are there... and POP you get CONCORDOKKENED... Lemme know where ya are and I'll pop over and salv yer wreck.

WHY do so many want to make things so EASY they are no longer FUN and WORTH doing???? Lazy lazy lazy...

I LOVE the new turret effects on the Noccy BTW!!!

Ah... something I fer got to add....


But what I REALLY want is salvager drones and tractor drones!!

Instead of worryin about three little clicks... how about a L4 or Sleeper wreck field that extends for over 100KM? Squat yer Noccy down in the middle and as you start in on the one you can reach you send yer tractor drones to the ones out of range to drag in all those yummy wrecks... and salvager bots to salvage the wrecks as don't have any loot but are out of range... like mining drones they bring back the salvage and drop it in your hold.

Now THAT I'll back!!

This is a good idea. In similar note looting could be improved in general with a simple hot-key much like autotargeting with ctrl click.

This would not at all benefit bots because you still have to clear level 4 or anom in order to get a screen full of wreaks to salvage, if a bot is used to do the former then that needs to be addressed directly, and not make the game extra cumbersome for human players (many other mmo's have autoloot functions, ones BTW that you don't have to deal with as much stuff to loot).
