would it be possible to design a salvaging drone? it wouldnt be hard to bring into the game. each level of them could have a larger drone cargo bay and a certian distance they could operate. once the drone comes back, just unload it into your ships cargo bay and send the drone or drones out again. mining drones can operate by themselves why not this idea. maybe perhaps tractor beam drones? who could help with this? ive mentioned it before in the eve help and chat lines and everyone has said what a great idea it is. any help would be great.

Salvaging drones are impossible due to the way the code works. I don't know the specifics, but I've seen many threads calling for salvage drones and CCP stated this in a few of them.

I'm ready for salvage drones, bring 'em on CCP :D

Nah seriously, once drones stop being an element in lag we might get something for drones, until then CCP is happy™ with the way they work now..

CCP wanted to have salvage drones, but the reason why they dont has to do with the cycle time of drones, since you dont get increase amount of salvage, but skills only affect the successrate.

I think that the salvage cycle and the salvage drone cycle combination made it imoossible for ccp to make salvage drones, it was out of scync or something
