Interesting idea but I dont think will work.Suring-->
no problem with this as its a set up skill.Salvage Tug-->
Slight problem with this. If you can tow a wreck why couldnt you tow a floating jet can...tractors can attatch to both remember...I can have up to 8 tractor beams on a destroyer and If I can tow 8 cans why would I ever buy an Industrial ship? If you do this you would have to restrict the towing ability to wrecks only or (I'd prefer this) put a volume on the wrecks and haul them in the cargo space of the ship.
Salvage Repairing--> This I have a Big problem with. A miner has to spend considerable time and effort to gather all of the minerals for a Battle Ship (just as an example) and has to have all of the skills to actually make the ship, and also has to have the BPO/BPC (also expensive). With this skill you just have to run a mission to grab a Battle Ship wreck (and with lvl 5 missions Dreds I think) haul it back to station and put it in the cooker to get a Battle ship........
The only way I could see Salvag Repairing would be to require an A$$ load of Wrecks to actuall do this. And even then I think it would screw things up.
Why would you mine when you can run missions to...
- Earn Money
Earn Loyalty Points
Pick up modules to sell/reprocess
Salvage wrecks to make new ships
Sorry but I dont think this would be a good thing for the game overall.
