Industrial Abilities

Ender logged in and asked, "Do you have anyone that needs jump clones?"

"Oh, you did it?"

"Yeah. Trying to remember how this works."

And as such, Baby Maker 2000 has come into our world because Ender wanted it.

I immediately suggested mining ops and I was told no, not really. Even with the new mining barge changes. Although, with ship prices as crazy as they are, we might unlazy ourselves... maybe....

A bit later, while I was cheerfully trying to get Razor to hug Ender for buying the Rorqual Ender goes, "Anyone want to do something mildly dangerous in a cloaky hauler?" I immediately volunteered Razor. However, his cloaky hauler alt was busy up in high sec doing POS runs.

Which reminds me that the other day, I did an emergency fuel block for him because someone (Razor) is a procrastinator and accidently purchased 10x more then he needed so now have 300mil in Caldari Fuel Blocks sitting in Rens...

"I guess then its Chella," I told Ender. "If her Viator blows up you gave it to her..."

Ender found a mining fleet in a grav site in one of the nearby systems. They had taken their barges off but left a few cans of ore behind. I sent Razor off to assist him and after I rebooted my computer (my sound like to stop working with my headset) I got on coms and sent Sugar and Chella to assist.

There was a bit over 10km3 of Crystalline Crokite in one can and some Dark Orcher in another. It was just enough to fit in my Viator with a few pieces left over. We were also hoping they'd warp in a counter fleet.

A purifier did warp in. Razor and I locked it. It was about 45k off of me. I wasn't tagging that with my auto cannons. Blinded to the excitement I headed for it and got trapped on the asteroid beside my can. Not just trapped on the asteroid, but it was hollow so you could go through it. I got sucked through the wall and stuck inside of it. The purifier warped off. I didn't care. I was having a serious 'oh shit' moment trying to work my way out of that damn asteroid (large collidable structure) and get into free space in case they dropped all kinds of things on us.

Large collidable objects will collide with your ship but not with ammunition. So, no protection. For a while I was floundering like a fish trying to make it off the dock and back into the water. It was terrible. Razor tried to shoot the purifier but it damped him. Razor is flashy red so the purifier did not take GCC. However, he did take aggression to our corporation.

Whoops.

The purifier warped off to the gate where he was tagged and popped by our scout. Bad day for him. Chella landed and I scooped the ore. Ender had already flipped the cans in case they came back in. The 16pieces of ore left I picked up with Sugar.

With no one around, we headed back out and the ore got dumped into the corp hanger. Its enough to build a battlecruiser. Nice little bit of mining there. :)
