I have the idea of a new specialized type of drones. Its not new, but as from 2007/8 (and that for closed) maybe about time to be discussed again. Salvage drones: in within drone control range salvaging wrecks that can be targeted by the player. Handy as just in some cases where a tractor beam (marauder, orca) is already part of the fitting, but a salvager not. Or just flying from target to target and leaving behind the containers (a fitting without tractor).
logic next step would be tractor drones, that can just do one thing: fly to a target (within targeting range) and pull an available wreck/container to your place.
skill lvls might add one specialized drone per lvl or increase the chance on salvage or enable the salvage drone TechII

thank You for the answer. As i stated its not new, but i am feeling that several years later now in 2011, one can rise the suggestion again.
Then, as a drone fan myself, there are actually no drone skills (books) available, or intended to be skilled, if I understood You correctly.

They were all for going live, but it was found that they had some very strange and not all that wonderful side effects.
They were problems that at that time, were insurmountable and so the drones were dropped.

Maybe with the slow integration of Carbon throughout the game, it will enable a fresh look at their introduction. Very Happy

aye, as we are several years and patches and eve-versions later.
an idea even as old and the wish/need/urge of it, makes it not less but more valid?

Well I agree, they were after all going into the game.

But knowing the speed that CCP work at, plus their direction more towards WiS and NEX, I wouldn't suggest holding your breath.
