Hello fellow commanders 07.
Ive recently returned to game after a long arse break and just wanted some advice
Ive been back in the game about 3 weeks now. First week i did a long exploration in my asp to try out new exploration stuff. Was awesome, visited some nebulas, found some thargoid stuff and made 175 million, which is more then i made on my first two runs to colonia back before exploration was changed, so payouts much better now.
With this little cash injection, i desided to start messing around with mining and first converted my python as a miner on a few local res sites to my home system. Paid out ok and only needed 7 short runs to make back all i had spent rekitting the python.
I got annoyed with all the scans and attempted piracy though, so headed to shinrata to kit out a bigger ship for some deep, deep space mining at a beautiful pristine ice system i discovered on my earlier exploration.
I desided to use my corvette, as i could fit all required modules and mining tools and still have hardpoints for defence turrets and over 300 cargo.
I have recently returned from the journey (146 jump round trip) and i made great money from it, but i didnt really need as much cargo and the number of jumps was insane in my corvette (fsd is modded for quick charge, not distance, as its intended purpose is a conflict zone ship).
So , my question is, what do other miners on here use as a dedicated mining ship for deep space mining?.
Im toying with the idea of getting a type 10 or refitting my conda or cutter, but all three are expensive options. Advice could save me lots of grinding for money and mods lol
Thanks in advance guys
