    no more questions?
    There are too many, actually

    1. Do you expect newer finders and newer minerals to extend the limit of 1000 m of depth?

    2. Why metallurgy is classified as a mining skill?

    3. I heard it is better to use amps only starting from a certain level of skills, even with maxed finders. Is it true, and if yes, what would be your recommendations?

    Well that saved me asking a good many questions, what a great post.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us all, it must have cost some serious peds in bombs and a great deal of time for you find this all out.

    I have a question or two ...pretty common ones I know but I bet you have an opinion ?

    1) Amp or no amp generally ?

    2) Double bombing (or multi standstill bombing) ?

    How do your experiences point you in these ?

    +rep of course for the great read and info and kindness sharing it

    1. Yes i do expect them to change the way we mine.. i cant help but feel that certain finders will be better suited for certain minerals

    2. hah funny one but 5 years i have never really crafted at all.. my metallurgy is 26.. dont even bother with it.

    3. Amps are a gamble- learn your areas and when they spawn heavy then slap an amp on. Dont explore with amps, dont mine crappy areas with amps.

    1. see above

    2. I always double bombs and keep bombing til you stop hitting. My personal best since the Meteor event is 13 claims from a single standing position, but i expect that from that area. experience helps alot.
    oh my personal all time best is 22 claims in one 100m area

    inherently there is a flaw in this system.. if everyone becomes aware of the "times" to mine then we will see a huge decrease in the good times. You see i do feel that its all a circle. when mining is bad crafters dig into there stocks or storage to craft and this leads to minerals back in the ground. I have this feeling if everyone werre to stop mining when its bad then no ped would go into the loot pool. its a tough thing to figure but i feel the ignorance of new miners leads to the success of Vets.

    food for thought.

    Huge help! Thought for sure that metallurgy was some sort of skill that would help with rare ores. Guess not. I think they should throw it under construction then. Still just mining part-time but this will be a great help + rep for sure.
