Today one of our corpmates scanned down a C2 wormhole. So we decided to delve in and mine Arkonor until we stripped the belt. We thought, the only reasonable way to do this is to bring procurers and have a hauler move the ore back. Sure enough 4 procurers and a Miasmos later, and we have a sweet little mining operation happening. Many of the members need the megacyte for some more advanced modules and ships.
The Arkonor that was mined was amazing. I myself got a little over 1k Arkonor. Which isnt amazing. But I gave my proc to someone else while I continued to run logistics. It was a fun time. The only crappy part was our operation was untimely ended by a Russian in a stealth bomber. We all got away safe but that was it for wormhole mining for the night.
This was my first trip ever into a wormhole, and it’s like nothing else. With the radars whacking out from the cosmic signatures the local chat is broken. It’s beautiful out here. Empty space, nobody around but me.
Having loads of fun, got lots of Arkonor and Bistot to fuel our megacyte needs. We should have enough now for most people to build pretty much anything they want, all we are running low on is the basic minerals. With less than 500k of any one mineral we won’t be able to mass produce anything much less mining ships like procurers and retrievers.
Other than that today wasn’t very interesting, still stockpiling Blueprints as well as organizing the Manufacturing Division. Hopefully, we get everything cleared up soon so that everybody in the division knows what’s going on and who is doing what, and when it needs to be done.
Cinnamon ToastCrunch and I decided we were going to take over the preparations for PVP and PVE. We are now the heads of the Manufacturing Division for the Pioneers of New Eden. We have been mass producing as many cheap t1 mods as we can with our own stores of minerals but pretty soon we are going to need miners that are dedicated to giving us minerals so that we can keep up with production. Between the 2 of us we have about 9 slots for production. Which is currently fine, however we are going to need more manufacturers as our little settlement grows and people can start flying our ships into battle to protect us.
We started production of some t1 frigates and guns and ammo today and started building fits that everyone should be able to train into quickly to begin protection of our little slice of space!
We had another mining op, but it was between the manufacturers. So Cinnamon and I and a new guy who joined our operation recently all went out mining to start our stockpile of ore and minerals.
Here’s the whole group going nuts on some of the biggest asteroids we have ever seen.
A friend of mine and I decided to try and grab some null sec ore from a system about 8 jumps away from our home station. We were dodging gate camps, anomaly campers and the like all night. Shout out to Byrbeglin Alcantar for the solid scouting skills and finding us a decent site. We got the system we were aiming for, and we warped to 0 on the Ore Anomaly and I got a solid 6 Triclinic Bistot, this was our first time gathering a true null sec ore so we were excited. However, our excitement quickly ended when a Caracal and 2 Jaguars jumped in and we had to warp off, hence my measly 6 ore. However we had a good laugh and continued the search for a decent ore belt.
This was the 2nd Ore Anomaly we checked and decided it was a little to hot for our little ventures.
We decided to head back to the first Anom we found to see if the heat had cleared off. I got off a solid 2 cycles of my mining lasers before a venture started targeting me and a Caracal warped in, we warped off, hoping that we could come back and get at least enough ore for a full refine, otherwise that 18 Triclinic Bistot is useless. On our way out of Null we found a nice little Heretic dropping Bubbles on the gates. Unfortunately as I attempted to burn back to the gate he grabbed me and had me blapped in no time.
Luckily he didn’t get my pod so I able to warp off and grab a Velator, my rookie ship. That almost didn’t make the trip either though. As I started my warp to the next gate I was webbed by a local in null sec, I got away just in time.
I sat in an asteroid belt today attempting to mine enough minerals and ore to continue my production of T1 modules for new ships coming in and myself in case I lose ships. And of course as I am mining a crow and a brutix warp in and blap me before I even have a chance to warm up the engines and warp off.
Welp, back to mining in a Rookie ship to get enough ore to make my new venture! Fly Safe New Edener’s! o7
