Last December, the endeavor towards a healthier mineral distribution throughout New Eden began. While this is a complex task, changes will be implemented in phases, over a period of time, to propel the project towards its ultimate goal: a dynamic mineral distribution system that will self-regulate based on inputs and outputs. Of course, that is easier said than done, and the road to get there is long and fraught with peril.
Drastic changes are being made that will be felt throughout the ecosystem, but there is confidence that they are positive changes for the long term health of EVE Online. This step will also allow all the factors that should be considered during the creation of the dynamic system to be listed.
Currently, there are three to five steps within this phase. The first step was executed last December, and the second step is going live with this patch.
The next step will be going live sometime next month. As explained in December, communication of the details is sensitive and there are huge interests at stake. Nevertheless, there is a need to give out a high level overview about the next step. Since Moon Mining is a time sensitive activity that relies on multiple time windows, by giving you a heads up and allowing for some time, you can adjust your plans accordingly.
During the next release, a significant change in how minerals are distributed on moons is planned. You should expect the following changes:. It is understood that the changes that will go live throughout phase 1 will affect the macroeconomic environment and the market reaction will be closely monitored. Predictions have been made and the readiness to take measures is in place. No stone will be left unturned in the mission towards a better future.

As with both the Citadels and the Engineering Complexes, Upwell has seen to keep some of the existing systems. As such, the key similarities between all Upwell Structures are:.
Moon Mining will be exclusive to Refineries when they are deployed in the Moon Mining Location around a viable moon. When the designs for Refineries were first being fleshed out, we knew that tying a single structure to a single moon would amplify some of the combat issues that face other Upwell Structures.
This will mean that keeping control of the area in which you are planning to deploy your structure is paramount. Further changes to the Vulnerability and Combat systems of all Upwell Structures are now underway and some early details about these upcoming changes can be found in the EVE Vegas Keynote. As with all Upwell Structures, the new Refineries will be able to fit all the standard Standup Service Modules, allowing their occupants access to services ranging from Clone Bays to Manufacturing and the other basic services this line includes.
At current market prices this represents a build cost of approximately 1. At current market prices this represents a build cost of approximately 9. While the structures themselves have bonuses to Reprocessing, Upwell are also introducing rigs to improve the functionality exclusive to these new structures. These are focused on the activities that only these structures can perform: Reactions and Moon Mining. They also effect the stability of the ores, increasing the time until the chunk automatically explodes and increasing the time the asteroids take to decay.
As Refineries are only available in the Medium and Large size, unlike Citadels and Engineering Complexes which also have an Extra Large version, we have had to make some changes to the value of the XL rigs. The following changes will then be made on the day of release:.
The Standup Moon Drill I Service Module is installed as a regular service module in a structure, taking a Service Module slot, but it is exclusive to Refineries that have been deployed in a valid Moon Mining location. Once they have been fitted, they grant access to the Scheduler described below from which Moon Mining extractions can be controlled.
Fitting this module requires the same access as any other structure fittings, and like other service modules, it requires fuel to Online and to run.EVE Online: Selling Raw Ore vs Reprocessing
However, only those pilots with the Station Manager role will be able to cancel an ongoing extraction. Through the Scheduler, Structure Controllers will be able to determine how long they wish an extraction to take and to find a time that suits them and their miner buddies to gather for the harvest.
The amount of time chosen will determine the size of the moon chunk being extracted on a linear scale. Once a Moon Extraction has been set, the Moon Drill will fire at the moon and begin to draw a chunk of the moon towards the Refinery.As an example, Veldspar has a very small volume per unit 0. This site updates prices daily so should always be reasonably up-to-date.
Nullsec ores are worth more than lowsec ores which are worth more than highsec ores. There are also safety trade-offs between mining in high security space and null security space. In nullsec, alliances are able to upgrade the space they own so that anomalies can spawn. These anomalies contain far greater amounts of ore than a regular belt, as well as the nullsec specific ores of Spodumain, Dark Ochre, Gneiss, Crokite, Bistot, Arkonor, and Mercoxit.
CCP hands more nerfs to mining, plans huge changes to moon mining
These are generally considered the pinnacle of mining profitability. Further information about mining and sov can be found under the Advanced Mining section. However, this is a misleading statement at best and horribly wrong at worst. In addition to requiring additional skills and different modules to mine, Mercoxit also produces a damaging gas cloud that does damage to anything within 5k of it.
The chances of producing a damage cloud is reduced with each level of Deep Core Mining that is trained. This is actually not generally a problem — all you have to do to avoid this is sit over 5k away from the Mercoxit rock as well as watching for damage to any drones.
However, Mercoxit mining has to be done in order to cycle nullsec mining anomalies. A nullsec mining anomaly that is associated with sov and industry activity defense multipliers ADM will respawn in a 5min period once the last asteroid is mined out, and thus there is an infinite supply of ore available for mining — as long as you mine ALL of the rocks.
Moon Ores Database - displays moon, image, moon ores, quantity, solar system and sec rating.
In highsec and lowsec, the ores you find in asteroid belts are determined by what racial space you are in. An important point to note when mining to sell ore is ore compression. Compressed ore generally sells better than non-compressed ore because it is easier to move.
Compression reduces the size and number of units of ore. The reduced volume allows greater amounts of ore to be stored in an ore hold as well as easier transportation of ore.
Compression can be done using multiple methods. Many citadels are fitted with the Reprocessing Service Module which also allows compression in the citadel currently free of charge! Select the ore while it is stored in wherever you will be compressing it, right click and select Compress.
Note for Rorquals, the Compress option is right next to the Jettison option — care should be taken with which one you select.The Mining Ledger allows both individuals and corporations to track mining activity in order to make more informed decisions about their industrial enterprise. There was a clear call from the CSM for corporations and alliances to be able to track who is mining the materials cleaved from moons by refinery structures, and the developers saw a strong need for all pilots to be able to track their own individual mining activity.
Out of these discussions the Personal and Corporate Mining Ledgers were born. We know that a vast majority of you love graphs, and so we've made sure your personal mining activity is represented in ways you like best: lines and bars - with filters to boot! The Personal Mining Ledger tracks all of the mining activity done by a character, anywhere in New Eden. As a pilot mines, the mining information is collected and batched into days in order to create a personal mining history.
We have been gathering the mining data of each individual pilot in New Eden since the June release to allow miners a glimpse into their activity history when the ledger is released. Just like other tools, the Ledger can be dragged from this section to your Neocom, so that it is always readily available. The Corporate Mining Ledger grants information on who exactly has been mining your moon ore, both friend and foe. The Corporate Mining Ledger is tied to mining activity around Refineries.
Who mines these asteroids, what corporation they belong to and how much they mine, is tracked in the Corporate Mining Ledger. It is worth noting that this information is not available in real-time and corporations must be vigilant in their guarding against those who may wish to steal their precious ores. The information in both the Personal Mining Ledger and the Corporate Mining Ledger is being presented in this simple format as we know that each individual and individual group will have their own needs and ways of using this information.
Group size, organizational structure and internal tax policies are just a few aspects that affect how this information can be used. Rather than restrict this use through formatting, we are presenting this to you as openly as possible in order to give you the chance to make the most of your mining.
The information in the Personal and Corporate Mining Ledgers can be exported to your Clipboard or reached through the API endpoints due to be published shortly.
We are looking forward to the tools that our very talented 3rd Party Developer community creates in this regard. Home articles dev-blogs. Personal Mining Ledger We know that a vast majority of you love graphs, and so we've made sure your personal mining activity is represented in ways you like best: lines and bars - with filters to boot!

That's it for this installment. Thank you and fly safe. Patch Notes Read more. The Scope Read more.Hello again industrious capsuleers. As we revealed in our previous dev blogthe introduction of Upwell Refineries this winter will completely revolutionize the way capsuleers harvest moons to obtain the resources used in Tech 2 production.
The old paradigm of a starbase moon harvester passively collecting units of moon materials every hour is being replaced with a new moon drill service module that rips massive sections of a moon into orbit so the ore within can be harvested by pod-capable ships. We discussed the basic outline of the new moon mining process in the eve keynote at Fanfest earlier this year as well as the previous blog, but for a quick refresher here is the entire walkthrough:.
The new types of valuable ores mentioned above represent another major change to the whole process of moon resource harvesting. Currently a moon harvester collects the moon materials such as Hyrocarbons, Titanium, Cadmium, Technetium, or Dysprosium directly in a form that is ready for reacting into intermediate materials and eventually composites for T2 construction. In the new process, the moon chunk will explode into new ores that can be mined by normal capsuleer mining ships and that must be refined into moon materials using a standard reprocessing facility.
These new ores will yield more than one output material when reprocessed, just like most existing ores. We are currently planning for the addition of 20 new forms of ore that will be obtained through this process.
Each of these 20 new ores will have a primary moon material that makes up a large percentage of its total value, as well as a few other materials that make up smaller percentages of the value. These secondary materials will often be other moon materials, but will also sometimes be normal minerals. These new ores will have five tiers of rarity just like the existing moon materials, with the rarest moon materials coming from the rarest ores. To facilitate the reprocessing of these ores and to allow use of new mining crystals we will be introducing five new moon ore processing skills: one for each rarity tier.
With this new moon harvesting technology will come a new way of looking at the composition of moons themselves and a new distribution of harvestable resources across the moons of New Eden. Currently each moon can have a presence of certain moon materials that indicates the ability to mine them with a moon harvester.
In the new moon mining paradigm, each moon will have a composition of a few ores, with each ore representing a percentage of the total moon composition. The second moon would be considered significantly more valuable than the first. Under this system the difference between moon quality will be much more granular than it was previously, allowing organizations to choose what priorities they want to focus on when claiming moons. Would your corporation or alliance prefer a moon that has a small quantity of an extremely valuable ore that you would cherry pick and then ignore the less valuable ores in a short play session?
Or would you be looking for a moon with a wider distribution of strong ores that enables more total income per month but requires more mining time to take full advantage? Alongside this rework of moon composition will be a complete reset of the current moon material distributions. We will be running a new randomized algorithm that will create the material compositions of moons across Lowsec and Nullsec space in this new percentage form.
This reset of the distribution will happen in the same expansion patch as the introduction of Refineries. We will be testing this new distribution on test servers over the coming months, including Singularity. We want to make it clear that the distributions that will eventually show up on SISI will not use the same random seed as what will be applied to the main Tranquility server on patch day. This reset of moon composition distributions will allow a fresh start for the moon mining system, enable the conversion to the new percentage compositions, and will also be an excellent opportunity for smart and diligent prospectors to gain profit in the scramble for resources.
Due to the radical changes to moon composition and the upcoming opportunities for moon surveying, we are also releasing significant user experience upgrades to the moon survey process.
Moon surveying is a lesser known form of EVE exploration that uses a special probe launcher to investigate the materials available in moons.Asteroids are large irregular chunks of rock that can be found in many places throughout New Eden.
When mined, asteroids yield ore which, when refined, produces minerals of various types that serve as the basic building blocks of almost every craftable item. Virtually every star system in EVE with the notable exception of Jita has at least one asteroid belt.
Most star systems have several -- up to more than a dozen in some cases. A ship warping to an asteroid belt's beacon through the right-click menu or the overview will warp to the center of the semicircle.
If you want to save on travel time, you can warp to mining bookmarks instead. A given belt will have a mixture of asteroids containing different ores. The mixture and size of the asteroids i. Each asteroid belt contains a finite number of asteroids which disappear once fully minedbut the asteroids respawn after downtime.
The website Dotlan has maps showing the number of belts per system. Mineable asteroids can also spawn in deadspace pockets, such as the ones created for missions. Unlike asteroid belts, these are not organized into a set shape.
Some are composed of dense clumps of asteroids, while others are scattered fields. For a list of which missions' deadspace pockets contain asteroids, see Mission Mining or EVE-survival.
Lastly, one of the two kinds of cosmic anomaly contains asteroids the others contains hostile rats. The asteroids in cosmic anomalies tend to be a little larger and contain rarer ore than the normal asteroid belts in a star system.
However, unlike asteroid belts, once all the asteroids in the anomaly have been mined, the anomaly disappears after broadcasting a short message in Local. As with all cosmic anomalies, new anomalies spawn semi-randomly.
Note that in many locations you will find decorative asteroids, which cannot be mined or otherwise interacted with. These will have colorful names such as "Snake-shaped Asteroid".The capsuleers below will happily reprocess your materials for you.
