I know all these tricks because I beta-tested them. Too few people play with the mini-monitors - one of, if not the, most powerful feature of the game.

Just when I thought I had tried it done it seen it - back to school for me too.
My TL is down in Ministry of Finance - not one jump from an nice asteroid field (apart from the nebula) - and if memory serves me right the TL has my TS mobile mining conga team already loaded in (1xPD and 3xBD)
Guess I know what I will be doing tonight then.
Thanks Brianetta.

Hm...I never used mini-monitors.I CAN use them, I just had so much pain with my CTD-filled 1.2 version in the tutorials that I don't want to use them, in memorial of it :evil:

Hmm...

It seems the picking up bits of ore-operation suffers from the same collision-avoidance nonsense that occurs if you try to dock many ships at the same place. So perhaps it would be an idea to just set your collectors to collect, nip out of the sector a bit and hit seta for a few secs then jump back in, to speed up the process. It works with multiple dokings, at least.

Any thoughts?

You don't seem to get nearly as much silicon/ore doing ti this way. Don't know why.

Ok, thanks. So much for that idea.

I suppose the best way is to make sure there's only one or two ships gathering from the same "cluster".
