Pretty sure this isn't the place for this. But it does pertain to mining, so here you go.

What's the deal with bookmarking these massive asteroids, then WTZ on top of them, and winding up doing 5km/s and stopping 75km away.

How's about we redo the bounce math or whatever, rather than play intergalactic pinball? Laughing


EDIT: Tried it again... warped to 10km of the bookmark instead, and came out 3500m off the rock. So evidently the dimensions of the bookmark need to extend to the edges of the bump radius rather than a single point in the center.

Now a thinking man (or woman) would realize that warping to 0 on a huge asteroid may not be the best idea ever and perhaps use one of the other possible ranges.

I am glad to see you not falling onto that trap and continuing to warp to zero - keep bashing the ship into the rocks eventually they will see the error of their ways and submit to you. When doing the same thing time and again with the same result (failure) does work you will have the last laugh on those of use that warp to BM's at 10 .

Or you could just spend 2 minutes in a shuttle/frig and make bms for the belt you want to mine.

and if you plan on mining in that system alot make bms (2-3 per belt so you can empty the belt with out having to fly around) for the hole system.

Gee... what excellent suggestions. I'm very happy to see there are so many helpful people in these forums.

I agree it's quite easy to change the distance. Especially when I tried warping to 10km, and wound up 3.5 instead. Obviously some big rocks.Shocked

But I've had a few occasions of the same ricochet off of stargates. Just depending on the angle of approach and so forth, I've collided with the structure and bounced several kilometers away before stopping.

So how about that, smartypants? Laughing

Be glad you're only playing pinball in a hulk... Freighters are much worse, they bounce off the gate and wind up 130km from the gate by the time they come to a stop. That sucks...

come back and have a go at the mechanics when you have been through an eve gate to another part of the universe and tested how it is !!!
