Repair mines

Jan 22, 2017 Dilan Rona link
Player manufactured mines that repairs ships when placed in a sector. Similar to lightning mines in effect.

Time out value, 30 min?

+1 if it gets the same effects as a lightning mine so anyone flying into it thinks "AW SHIT NO" and then realizes his health goes up.

What a ridiculous suggestion for the reasons Sieger gave.

The perfect troll mine!

Hmm. This could be fun. Find somebody's r-mines, blow them up, and drop your own l-mines in their place. Yes, I think I might like this.

Make them work only on a player and group members

plant a minefield mixed with both lightning and repair mines for maximum stimulation

Notice how the only -1 was of an EMS hater. Wonder what he'd say if it was one of his own. Too late to tell now! Heavily baised I say!

For the sake of keeping things realistic, how would this work? Nanites jumping from the "mine" to the ship itself? If so, I think there shouldn't be a time limit, rather somewhat of a set amount of nanites on a single mine. So in theory, the mine could stay there forever until used. Unless there is a problem with this mentioned previously that I haven't read, I don't currently see a problem with it myself. (I decided not to read the entirety of that stupid lmine argument/thread.)

+1 but as HG says, how are the nanites going to jump? I see this working more like a conc mine. You run into it and a cloud of nanites puff on your ship.

+1 this would be cool
