    Strange mining occurrence

    Lately I have had a strange mining occurrence. While walking, I drop a probe, then still walking I make a slow right turn 90 degrees, and usually get a hit. I get more hits this way than just straight line mining. This doesn't work in all areas. Is there something to this or just luck? I have been a miner for a long time, not a noob.

    going by this, i'd go with just luck.
    You could get a handful of friends, have them do exactly the same, if they don't get the same result, then it's confirmed that it's just luck.

    I have seen some very strange things when mining. I do think that there is a reversable system...

    Don't forget the clusters (a lot claims are near at same place). I always try to find clusters. Once i got 18 claims within a range of 200m.

    So my methode is, if i get a claim, i most search for other claims near this, if HR is good. I most mine also both together, ore and enm. (about i'm to lazy to switch all the time) and result is near same, on my places, as if i go only for one of both. This methode needs to drop in short distances, if you think it is a cluster.

    Let me tell you what does work, when there are no hits in an area, logging off sorts that out very quickly.

    Not playing the game is counter productive to both Mindark and the player, but if the player is not enjoying themselves for any reason alt-f4 is the best option, your ped balance will thank you for it.

    i don't think MA has coded a couple million "personal loot paths", way too much work, just having RNG can produce the same results and requires a lot less work

    Claims occur in lines and in clusters. If you have a line of NRF, dropping off to the side of the line will quite often hit a claim. If not, then you're probably in a NRF cluster...
