Question about Mining Drones

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to get shuttles to deploy mining drones without switching to them and doing it manually?

When I give the order to deploy drones from the bridgeviewer, they don't deploy them.

Am I not waiting long enough after they are reported to be at the planet? I can deploy them from 1000 or so meters up when I switch to direct control.

I use Tacops and set waypoints. Works like a charm. I like to bring the BC close to the planet. Observe the planet, choose the ship, choose the instruction, place the waypoint, click launch.

The reason I like to bring the BC close to the planet is so that the shuttles will not have very far to fly and by the time I am giving instructions to the third shuttle the fist one has already made planetfall and you can see it drop its drone.

Just a little tip, make sure your waypoints for the shuttles to drop the drones are not too close together, and also, drop them in friendly territory, then they dont get wasted smile.gif
