If you go to Minerals//Ore section, you will see different types of comets. Er..?? What? Comets? Can you scoop them or something? Can you refine them? I do not understand.

Shiva feature maybe? I know they're putting in comets in shiva.. but I didn't know we could..sell them lol

Heh I can picture MWD'ing to intercept a cometWink and being like "hey hold still let me mine you" and it shoots off at 10000AU.
Crying or Very sad

Attempting to mine a comet while in warp to keep up with it while your ship it being smacked around..

X-treme Mining Cool oh yea

In-game description of Megacyte:

Quote:
An extremely rare mineral found in comets and very occasionally in asteroids that have traveled through gas clouds. Has unique explosive traits that make it very valuable in the armaments industry.

Should I point out that comets don't travel any where near the speed of light so thus warp is useless for comet chasing... nah Wink

Probably required for POS or something... either that or they have been reading my idea, Linkage, which i doubt because i only put it there a few days ago.

Umm... 6au/s = 2,994 times the speed of light...

A comet only goes like 50km/s (rl).

Google Calculator ROCKS!

Actually comets change their speed while in orbit around which ever sun they are in proximity to., this is because they are in an ecliptical orbit which results in them passing close to the sun (sending off the 'tail' as it melts) and then moving far from the sun (rebuilding the core with particles of dust form the cloud of debris surrounding the solar system).
For those who want to know what an ecliptical orbit is like then imagine an oval (squashed circle) orbit path with the sun at one end of the oval.

(note: comets are not comets if not orbiting suns in the manner described above as then they are just lumps of ice and rock, usually called asteroids)

Of course, Captain Pendantic! To the missing-the-point-mobile!

seriously, who cares?? point still remains that being in warp is thousands upon thousands of times faster than the maximum speed of any stellar body

Comets are only asteroids or other celestial objects, which are made of mostly of water, methane, carbon dioxide..
And they are called comets only when they are near a sun - when they leave a trail of vapourated gasses. If these celestial objects aren't near sun (they don't leave trail), they aren't called comets. (but they can still be mined!)
Also.. the trail is made by solar wind, not their movement. So trail always points away from the sun.

I just hope CCP developers will consider implementing existing laws of nature and not make up their own again.

PMSL....... nice one

The idea of extreme mining chasing comets down and mining there asses would be an interesting diversion even if the gains were not so high. Lets see someone AFK mine them in an indy Laughing

it would be cool if u had to intercept, then webify the comet to slow it down in order to mine it effectively.

yeah. and how about fixing missles? whatever happened to physics there? (i mean, if you are going 1km/s and you fire something that goes 1km/s the total speed of it would be 2km/s)

Comets are the origin of life, all hail the gods!

Something for the suckers with DCM perhaps?

Wich opens the question. If you're going three times the speed of light... what will happen when you turn on your mining lasers?

You would open a temporary worm hole to the realm of zyd filled ores that require 2 units to refine, and every 3000 take up 1m/3 cargospace. Shocked

Reminds me of the dark beta days, where all ore took up 1 m3

Mining ark in a frig was quite profitable then, as you can imagine

I remember mining rare ores in a rookie ship near the eve-gate in beta... that was cool.
