Thread: Somewhat to my surprise, I'm rather enjoying mining

    Somewhat to my surprise, I'm rather enjoying mining

    It's a very restful activity, isn't it? I'm not in any danger of making huge amounts of cash yet, but I'm enjoying the change of pace.

    Yeah it's peaceful and a relaxing way to make some money. Credits per hour aren't anything to write home about, at least when I do it, but it is relaxing. I usually listen to some music or podcasts.

    Yeah as long as it is only an hour or two it is a nice change of pace. I didn't bother really until engineers. But now it is my go to method of farming reloads for combat CG weeks.

    Mining doesn't cut it for me. I get too sleepy playing it!
    And to reload for combat CG's, I usually raid the barnacles!

    I like a good mining session every now and then.

    It's not something I would do on a regular basis, but I find it very relaxing and zen-like.

    Pop an audio book on or a Lave Radio podcast and you are golden!
    There are three basic types: The Wills, The Won't, and the Cant's
    The Wills accomplish everything, The Wont's oppose everything and the Cant's will not try anything.

    It is a perfect way to relax and unwind, nothing but the sounds of mining lasers and collection limpets. It's perfect! And a hell of a way to spend your retirement

    you can also get many materials for any synthesis (jumponium!) and engineering: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showth...-for-materials, if you know where to look.

    last week i did ~100 FSD5 increase rolls, and got all the arsenic needed from mining a metal rich ring from that thread (imho faster than barnacle farming).

    Alternatively, I am trying trading for the first time in earnest. Plotted all of the known rares, and am moving from cluster to cluster, while State trading when I find a good spot (recalled you encouraging State trading, in-game only, many times). Not only is it fun and lucrative, but found an excellent documentary on the Falklands War on youtube.

    OP, glad you're enjoying mining.

    Nice to see another Conda miner. It's a beautifully precise mining machine. 4 mining lasers, up to 9 limpets doing their thing, and the sounds of the working refinery.
