    Mining protest! (open letter to MA)

    Since massive banhammer (2011.05.06) and improvements in mining (simplifications), happened two horrible things:

    1. Mining Towers is no Towers anymore, they look just like regular claims.

    I don't see answers anywhere, will they return or not. Why they was removed? Because of "sneaky" players complains, who hidden themselves on tracker? They afraid if somebody will see their actions? Or Towers is in several months graphical improvement stage, will soon consists from hundreds thousands polygons, super-las-f-vegas textures and will spread their lights into space?

    I saw thousands claims. Tower is a special thing. I don't care - gives it skills or not - I just want nice picture! Answer, please, - will be Towers back or not!

    2. Due to *censored* tango-exploiters, reload of anything now "fixed", so you must wait to end of reload, and only after that you can get into vehicle.

    Thank you. Thank you. I understand, you have much more important things to do. And from developers point of view - it's very simple and safe approach - just make it not only for weapons, but for any tools too. Just one hammer hit for anything. Is it was SO HARD to make exception just for tools? Or I can kill someone with my finder? I just think that devs can't distinct weapons from tools easily.

    But what happened? Just to clarify: my mining speed didn't changed. My mining experience has.

    I just love to fly. I love sightings of Calypso, there is new beautiful lands. I love to get globs and HOFs in midair, upon liftoff. Fly very low between trees (I playing from 1st mode of view always), sometimes hitting them, or too low, sometimes hitting ground, turning left or right, strafing. Mining on edges of mountains, on hard, steep surfaces. I love ACTION mining.

    Now I almost falling asleep, waiting to my finder, when it's reload ends. Due to lousy implementation of VTOL-physics, sometimes even on FLAT surface it can't stand correct, it turns upside down. Before that "fix" I partially can prevent it, by climbing back in VTOL in any moment, thus, stabilizing it, and trying to land on different place.

    Before "fix", I easily burned 400 PED of fuel per month. Now, since I flying twice less, I burning just 200. And I am not alone! It's YOUR money, MA!

    ------

    What I will do:

    I hit 3 towers in this year. I will hit more. Two my latest towers still stands. They will stand, and I will leave all next ones. When there will be enough towers in one area, I will start dragging them together, making letters. From letters I will make words.

    And I will do that in any mineable worlds.

    Great idea bro!

    I also miss action mining, it gave me such a big adrenaline kick, drop bomb and fly vtol.. sick!.

    Last time i had 50 towers standing on oyster island i started making a book! Had the first sentence made with thoose 50 towers, then i made another sentence on myrene island! (also had 50 towers there)!!!

    Too bad towers are like normal claims now, not worth mining if i cant get that cool tower picture! Who cares about ped, its for noobs, for us pros only the picture and action mining counts

    I really hope MA removes all mining claims.

    The real miners don't need loot and to waste time extracting it. The pleasure is in dropping bombs and gaining skills.



    PS: you should protest and not extract any of your claims!!!! Boycott!!!

    I'd like to see towers returned to being "Towers" again, not personally had one yet, but aspire to get one some day, and I'd like them to look like they used to - something special.

    I hope its because they are bugged and not that they are gone for good. Would be nice if Kim or Bjorn would comment on this.


    Please bring back.....




    ^ see how happy he looks?

    Q: can you actually leave your tower there without extracting it?

    1. Tower stays forever, until it not extracted fully.
    2. Each pull gives from 4k+ upto 6k+ ped batch each 24h.
    3. New batch doesn't start "prepare", until you got ready one.
    4. A batch extracted from tower in one pull with any excavator.

    There is some towers stays on Caly from long time ago, still.
