One thing that always annoyed me about CCP is that one of the biggest aspects of the game, mining, is one of the least worked on or have content added for that aspect of the game. Mining, despite what some people may say, could be a very cool aspect and less boring if CCP actually spent a little time, and effort, to make it more engaging.
Things they could do to make it better are added different colored lasers for what ore you are mining. This would allow miners to know what ore was being mined by another miner in the same belt by using color coding of the laser mining pulse.
They could add a better ore gathering system that allowed the miner to see how much ore was left in an asteroid as they mined it in real time. As it is now it is total guestimation on how much ore is left while you mine the asteroid. Real time info would make it easier to know when to turn off your mining module for that asteroid and start mining a new one.
How about allowing us to go further in the mining skill system and allow us to increase our ability to mine more ore and to specialize in finding, gathering and refining said ores - and in doing so requires micro management of power input and output of the mining vessels power supplies and such.
Also, why can't mining vessels have more defensive capabilites? You'd think that if these people in this universe were so advanced that they would have ways of better defending themselves from induviduals whose only purpose it to blow up a mining vessel - yet as we all know that is not the case and mining barges are one of the easiest targets to suicide gank. Come on CCP we can only suspend disbelief for so long before it becomes stupid silly.
Also, how come this games star systems have no orbits? The planets, moons and asteroid belts are all static. They never move. Wouldn't it be a bit more challenging and engaging if it required miners to scan down asteroid belts because their locations changed - or does Newtonian physics not exist in EVE? For a game that is suppose to be ahrdcore sci-fi you completely miss the boat on many levels.
How come miners get no new mining ships?
Speaking of ships, why are the only ships getting updgraded and new ships being built combat ships? When will CCP add say, a mid-ranged freighter? You have a choice between small and huge. Do not bring up the Orca either. The Orca is a specialized mining freighter and requires mining related skills. How come CCP hasn't put into game a freighter that is around the 350k/m3 to 450k/m3 range?
New mining barges would be good as well.
So I ask the question - when is CCP going to start working on the one aspect of the game that has been neglected for so long?
