Please re instate a limited distribution of harvestor drones back into the game - 7.5m - 8m a drone is far to much. Lets have them reappearing at certain agents perhaps limits could be placed on how many are dropped into the system each day

these drones are meant to be a collectors items...nothing more..the TechII mining drones is fine..or at least I think it is.

if you add better mining think..I mean..think that boost you some how..all you do..is decreasing the price of the minerals..but..I would like to se some Xlarge or just medium mining drones..they are all small today...

I agree that better mining drones would be nice perhaps with a large mining drone skill to go with them just like the combat drones

I would like to see better mods for mining . I mean strip miners are good and all. But a Ice Miner amplification med module that decreases the cycle time for ice would be awsome. and heavy mining drones would be icing on the cake.

Harvestor Drones ?

They are almost gone from the game. They are an Antique. They aren't needed in large numbers.

lol turtle head they mine 100 units a minute - mineral prices arent budging esp with dreadnaughts coming into the game all im talking about is a limited amount of harvestor drones dropped randomly by level 4 agents perhaps (the rate of drop could x amount per hour) a smallish amount to keep supply up

Harvester drones do still have a use that the tech 2 mining drone can't perform: Anyone willing to risk using them in 0.0 space can mine 2 units of the 16m^3 ores per cycle instead of just one.

civ yes they do have a use within the game in that way but no new ones are being pumped out to replace ones destroyed. I just think that if they are part of the game there should be some way to continue their generation within the game world

Even as an introduction of the tech 2 BPC via RP offers - u could get a 5 BPC harvestor drone I. Im sure the components and mineral requirements could be drempt up by CCP hey all those freed slaves might be of some use - 20 freed slaves as one of the building blocks.

they are better than t2 so they wount be handed out by agents or similar but maybe mining ops in 0.0 might do so

Still not buying it.

harvestor drones were the Be all in mining, I think they should stay as they are, letting supplies diminish till theres only 1 Left ! Imagine the Price of that !

It would introduce a new trade to EvE ! The Antiques dealer !

Subtitles for the hard of thinking: Yes sonofollo, my point is they're not merely "collectors' items" as TheNecromancer says. They're uniquely useful, and they are still available from other players.

Why would CCP allow them to slowly become a lost technology though? Well, can you imagine the whining from people who invested in stocks of Harvester drones if tech 2 mining drones made them obsolete?Wink

if it mean anythink for you guys (super miners like my self)..the harvester mining drones BPO..are in the eve database...that ofcause dont mean its relaeased or ever will be..

its item no. 3219

thats a very low number..so it has been there for a very long time :)

today it requires 6 x Tritanium to make..but if they every got out..I bet that would change :)

yeah theres a lot of things CCP have had in and nerfed but not fully removed - im sure they could be nerfed a bit to bring them just over the top of t2 mining drones perhaps with another skill tree or special implant to use em.

Just seems a shame to loose even a limited trickle new supply

Same goes for concord agents
