One thing you might want to have (if you want to roll this way) is claim enforcer(s).

Kick those who might want to cause trouble (or outsiders who mine under our protection without contributing) out even before they lock people up. Ideally, these people will already have crime stats and have enough of those people that a BH or two can be driven off/destroyed.

Alternatively, offer protection for other miners outside so long as they pay an hourly fee (enforced by above enforcers). Say 10-20k per hour. Once they pay, they come into the group and can use our quantum beacons, etc to get to the station quickly. Might be a good choice to coordinate with Yellow Jackets.
If people want to cause trouble they will be dealt with as needed. We're not going to intimidate anyone into going away, there's enough space for everyone.............FOR NOW *evil*.

A hard No on the 2nd one. Our escorts are for us. They're not to protect people we don't know nor care for.

And Marcsand already knows about this.

Split up in 2 teams. When shit hits the fan for one team, then the miners of the 2nd team can go in safety and their protection can help out the 1st team.

CET, so CST afternoon would be doable for me. I'm a very bad miner
They are split up kinda sorta. The moles should be in the same general area of each other so the escort group doesn't have to go very far to reach either if there is trouble. The goal now is to mine an entire area at a time and not leave anything around and be constantly going back to put refinery jobs in.

You're not a bad miner, you just mine DDM: death, destruction, and mayhem.

Current Force comp thought:


19 people, 15 total + 4 alternates

Mining Team:

2 Moles - Crew 6
2 Prospectors - Crew 2
3 Scout/Additional Fighter - Crew 3


Escort Team:


1 Station Overwatch/Beacon - Crew 1
3 - Escorts: 2 Fighters, 1 Eclipse - Crew 3

Total People - 15ish


Further expansion form this is another Mole, replacing the Prospectors, followed by the addition of 3 more escorts.

Are you looking to strip mine the area...aka, every rock is mined as we find it, or just the good stuff?

I also have a mole if needed. Only has one upgraded mining laser; but if you want another one depending on the day I should be good to offer.

Also, wouldn't two Moles = 8 crew? or are you not counting the pilots in that?
All you need for a mole is one man. One good man who's quick on his feet and doesn't mind sliding down a ladder every 2 minutes. Ideally an ex-fireman!!

slide down the ladder? You mean go backwards into it so you just fall down the turret area? I don’t have time to climb down ladders. Let gravity do the work. Also - have a med pen on hand.

With talk of a full wipe for 3.12 these ops have become even more important than before not only to TEST and gather information but to rebuild fortunes.
Is talk saying everything is going (aUEC, armor, weapons, ship upgrades, essentially anything that isn't in hangar)? Or are they saying it's just partial?

I get that we never known *anything* until the day arrives or there's a formal announcement, but I was curious what exactly was going 'round.

Full wipe is what they're debating on because of the many many issues with people abusing broken stuff and bugs over the past year.

I still say the Mole should be a four man crew unless we're short on manpower. It's just faster and if the ship needs to bug out right away it's better to have someone in the pilot's chair. And besides, if that happens the Mole might be able to get close and three mining heads vs ...well....anything=instagib.

But, if the idea is to be fast, then man that pilot's chair while all the heads are working. Turret crew says gogogo and the pilot swivels the ship around to the next target. None of this fapping about with ladders.
