this sounds like a grate idea, but problems , ships need a host to load it. so unless you are going to buy accounts for every drone and computers to run each drone. you are basically building a yolol scrips to run the ship and then need some sort of scrips to unload to keep going.
i can see it possibly working slowly if someone is helping it along, but not in afk
yes you may get a ship to go out and find a rock and mine it, and come back to base. but loading and unloading, refueling rods and propellant. connecting to the resource bridge , ya this is not going to work.
then ill find it and kill it, or take it and make it myn!
