Running AMC fleets
- Main article: Amarr Mining Campus
While running Amarr Mining Campus Shared Can Mining Operations please use the following rules and guidelines to run the operation smoothly:
In this section HH:MM should be replaced with the current eve server time.
In Shared Can operations, the fleet commanders need to keep track of each person’s contribution. In the AMC, this is measured by the time each member spent mining, hauling, boosting or scouting.
Any announcements while participating in the mining operation must be written in fleet chat. If you fail to announce your ON/OFF times, you may be underpaid due to a lack of accurate time information.
Follow the simple steps below to ensure you get the correct payout for the fleet:
While you are a member of the mining operation you need to follow the announcements from the fleet commander regarding the ore and asteroid belts you're mining.
Check that your selected asteroid isn't already being mined by another fleet member. (easiest way is Alt-Click "View").
Announcing start/end times
Type LASERS ON HH:MM in fleet chat when you start mining.
Type LASERS OFF HH:MM in fleet chat when you stop mining, or leave your computer for longer than your lasers cycle time.
A 'lasers off' call isn't needed when you change belts or re-target asteroids. Lasers off is only required when you stop mining before the end of the operation.
Jet-Can Operation and Naming
For Shared Can operations, miners in barges/exhumers will mine into Enormous Freight Containers which should be prepositioned in the belt for your use.
If you are in a venture you will not have the range to sit next to an EFC so you will be mining into jetcans, which the Haulers collect and haul back to station.
The procedure is as follows:
1. Once your ore hold is getting almost full, you will need to move it to a jetcan. You can either use an existing jetcan (if close by) and if not, you can create your own.
- Creating a jetcan: - select the ore, right click and chose jettison into a space. - Click yes in the "Are you sure" pop-up. - You should see a new jetcan in space, close to your ship. - Rename the jetcan using the AMC jetcan naming convention (see below)
2. Stay close to the jetcan and keep transferring ore from your ore hold to the jetcan
Tips: - you can transfer ore even during a mining cycle. - the mined ore is deposited in the ore hold at the end of each mining cycle, so make sure you have enough space at that moment.
3. When the jetcan is getting full, rename it using AMC naming convention scheme (see below) and repeat from point 1.
We have a naming scheme for jetcans, as follows:
When to use it: First time when you create a jet can and every time you add ore to it. Meaning: This can is in use, and was jettisoned at the given time.
When to use it: when the can is full and it can be pulled by the hauler. Meaning: This can is full to 27,500m3 or as near as possible. It will be picked up by a hauler. Do not change the time, only change the caption. The time is required to know when the can might expire.
When to use it: When you plan to move away from the can and you will not use it anymore. Meaning: this can is not yet full, but is no longer being used, such as when you run out of asteroids or move out of range but haven't yet filled the can. It will be picked up by a hauler. Do not change the time, only change the caption. The time is required to know when the can might expire.
Whilst a member of the mining operation you need to follow the announcements from the fleet commander regarding the location the ore needs to be hauled to.
Announcing start/end times
Type HAULING ON HH:MM in fleet chat when you start hauling.
Type HAULING OFF HH:MM in fleet chat when you stop hauling, or leave your computer for more then 2 minutes.
While you are waiting for new cans to be full you do not need to announce HAULING OFF.
Contracting the ore
At the end of the operation, or when you stop hauling, you need to contract all the ore you've hauled at the station to the fleet commander.
While you are a member of the mining operation you need to follow the announcements from the fleet commander regarding the system you're providing boosts in.
Announcing start/end times
Type BOOST ON HH:MM in fleet chat when you start boosting.
Type BOOST OFF HH:MM in fleet chat when you stop boosting, or leave your computer for more than your booster cycle time.
Please only announce BOOST OFF when you're leaving the operation. While traveling between belts or systems the same rules as above apply.
If boosting on grid: Before moving to a new belt, inform the fleet of your intention to move. At half your maximum velocity ask the fleet to "cycle lasers". On entering warp announce to the fleet "in warp". Once your ship has landed on grid with the fleet, activate your boosts and say, "boosts back on" in Mumble. This allows fleet members to cycle their lasers and avoid them losing the yield from a failed cycle.
When EVE University is at war, we require you send out scouts to the nearby systems to watch for war targets. If any war targets come near the mining operation, the operation should dock up to be safe.
When you're planning to run a mining operation, please prepare the necessary paperwork (Spreadsheet) and the MOTD before starting the fleet.
As an AMC FC, you are required to keep track of your Fleet; recording each member's participation, share weights, amount of ore mined, prices of ore, etc. To save all the required information, the AMC provides the 'AMC Buyback Spreadsheet'. Please make sure you're sharing the spreadsheet with "anyone with the link" as you will write this link to the MOTD.
It's not as hard as it sounds - it's actually pretty simple, so please do not be afraid of becoming a Fleet Commander because of the spreadsheet business. If you ever get stuck, just ask around and there's bound to be someone who can give you a hand.
MOTD (Message of the Day)
When your Fleet is running, you must create an MOTD (Message of the Day). You must place all required important information in the MOTD for the whole Fleet to see.
To set the MOTD follow these steps:
- Right-Click on the 'Fleet' tab
- In the drop-down, select the 'Settings' option
- There should be an MOTD text box. This is where you type out your MOTD.
