Thread: Mining dropship

  1. #1

    Mining dropship

    Ok so I'm no mining master, but the dropship appears to be very good value for tonnage to price for a mining vessel, without having a vessel that takes a week to fill up per trip.

    My problem? I don't really know how to outfit a ship like that for maximum efficiency. So, if people would be kind enough, can they leave designs for a mining dropship that I can borrow, please (and no engineers if that's possible).

    Sorry I don't have a build sheet, I'm on my phone. It's a good miner, little sluggish moving around the rocks.

    It is what allowed me to purchase a python, which is a real rock star when it comes to mining.

    Some Dropship suggestions in here, along with some other ones.

    In fact just head to that thread and wave at Limoncello Lizard until you get his attention, if his mining senses don't tingle enough that he notices this one.

    Pretty much want a prospector, the biggest refinery you can fit, the biggest collector limpet controller you can fit (or the smallest you can stand) , after that, it's all storage.

    This is a pretty good start, feel free to fill in the weapons and utility slots as you see fit

    Lmao.

    Here you go, something like this will do. Just use whatever core internals you have: https://coriolis.edcd.io/outfit/fede...SGF9A%3D%3D%3D
    Solo and Private Groups should not affect Open Power Play or the BGS.

    On my Anaconda I run 5 at a time, because you can run and gun asteroids.

    I always run alot of mining limpets, I don't like sitting around waiting for them to get done.

    With 2 medium mining lasers and 9 collectors on my python it takes 10-20 seconds for the limpets to finish after the lasers finish the rock.

    @ Fendalton... 4 medium mining lasers an 3 collector limpets? What a waste of time and lasers.

    There are ten bins in that refinery.
    I run ten active limpets in my Python with the same refinery.
    Thre's a good Dropship build on that thread linked.

    You asked for maximum efficiency, so try this

    M Pulse?
    I assume that was a typo?

    I also use an FDS for mining. ( https://eddp.co/u/2ZsYWN8c ) This is more or less what I use for a build. I don't bother with a shield as I want more space for mining internals, the FDS has enough hull to take some hits. I find it still capable of defending itself with three multicannons while out mining. Mine is mostly unengineered, except for the FSD range. I always say you can never have too many collector limpets when mining. Good luck o7

    Interesting ideas! I'll have to kit out a dropship sometime and see how I like it. :-)
