    RNG sucks. Plain and simple. It sucks even more in a resource gathering environment. I'd like to propose a new method of finding rare ores and woods:

    When using the mining skill by action(like using eval int to actually eval something) you would be able to determine the type of veins/wood available to you on the current screen. This could be done as a flash or cursor and would let the miner/lumberjack know where a particular color of ore is located. This could be done in conjuction with a new item. A valorite/verite/copper surveyor's kit or whatever.

    This type of system would take the RNG and utter annoyance out of looking for ore/wood and wouldn't promote the now infamous "mining" or(dare I say)"jacking in a circle" to get the resources one needs now. This would only server the purpose of saving time and if done correctly wouldn't benefit scriptors but instead(GASP!) benefit players actually at the keyboard.
