Reading the devblog on the nullsec overhaul and it s feedback its apparant that people are talking mostly about the distribution of mineable resources.

A few others are trying to raise the second fundamental, but seemingly less popular aspect of it: how we mine the ore.

I assume CCP s only intention this time around is to look at the distribution of resources only but it would be really nice if they could DO something about the tedium and boredom you get from days and days of solid item moving from one hold to another by altering the way in wich we actually mine.

Theres been numerous suggestions to this over the years so I wont rehash any of it here, it s out there to be found if you go look for it.

on the bright side, unless one is mining in low/null its usually pretty safe to open up youtube or put on a dvd and watch that while you mine. Being a warm and fuzzy high sec miner (see what i did there lol) I spent lots of time watching documentaries during the first 2 weeks i played as i trained up some SP

It might be a good idea to post stuff like this over in the threads created specifically for it in the Features and Ideas section? Just a thought.

No one goes to F&I forum anymore not even CCP. That section is where ideas go to die and be forgotten.

Me, Me, Me, ME!

You are probably right that the first thing is redistribution. Greyscale did say that they like the tedious nature of mining as it apparently caters to the drunk/lazy/preoccupied part of the population .. doesn't mean one can't add to it though which I tried with my mining revamp concept.

Yup thats exactly how I handle it. Sometimes there are just lulls for me in Eve where I don't feel so much like playing and mining becomes the outlet for that. Its mindless, easy but profitable which is ideal for watching a movie while your doing it, catch up on some reading or whatever. I wouldn't skulk at a change, it would be interesting to make it more fun but truth be told their is a difference between mining high sec and low sec. I mean in low sec mining can be a very exilirating, freightning experiance and while Im not really a miner I often love to participate in mining ops because it creates tactical and strategic situations that are a lot of fun.

So ya mining could use a change but personally outside of high sec mining, it can be a pretty entertaining pastime.

Rolling Eyes Really? No-one? Don't speak for me and everyone else please, it only makes you look like a dolt.

And CCP doesn't? Really? Which is why there are about 8-9 new threads put up by CCP Greyscale in that section?
