100,000,000 isk Autominer Eve-Online Macro Mining Bot

Automated mining guide for the Game Eve-Online

This guide will walk you through the simple steps of creating your own macros for Eve Online.

You will need a program called Macro Express, and can download the shareware version from

It is a safe program that has been in use for years with no hidden spy ware attached to it.

With Macro Express, you can record, edit and play back mouse and keyboard macros.

What is a Macro?

A macro is a set of commands that can be played back at will to perform a given task. These tasks can be something simple such as inserting your name and address into a word processor to something more complex such as launching a program, copying data from it, activating another program, pasting the data into it and repeating this several times. Tasks performed by macros are typically repetitive in nature allowing significant savings in time by executing the macro instead of manually repeating the commands.

To get you started fast I will walk you through a basic mining macro, which will move ore from your ship’s cargo hold to a floating cargo hold in space.

Once you feel comfortable with this, we will move onto a more advanced macro which will undock your ship, warp to the asteroid belt, mine warp back to the station, dock unload your ore and repeat itself.

Step 1:
Start up Eve and once in the game hit the esc key; this will take you to the settings. On the Generic tab click “Auto Reject Invitations”. This will prevent someone from trying to convo you while running a macro. Now go into the Graphics tab and change your screen to window mode.
Macro express will run in full screen mode, however it’s easier to learn in window mode.

Step 2:
Fly out to an Asteroid belt in a 0.9 system that has lots of ore, a station with a factory and Reprocessing plant. The best 0.9s can be found by using your map. Go into the Display Settings and click the Stars tab. Once it loads click show by Security Status. The best 0.9s are the one’s closest to 0.0 space or on the outer rim of empire space. They will show up as light blue dots.

Step 3:
Lock on a couple of rocks and start mining, when you have some ore in your holds jettison the ore and open the floating container so you have 2 rectangles on your screen. One being your ship’s cargo hold the other the floating cargo hold.

Step 4
Alt tab out of Eve to your desktop and open up Macro Express. On the left-hand side you will see a capture icon click that looks like a camera click this icon. An Add Macro screen will pop up, hold down the Ctrl key and then push the M key. Now click the Capture Macro button. A warning screen will come up and simply click yes to continue. Give your “Ctrl M Macro” a Nickname such as mining test1. Now click Start Capture, A Double Alt Warning screen will pop up.


Step 5
Alt tab back into Eve and click OK on the Double Alt Warning Screen (note this only appears in window mode). Move your mouse over to your ships cargo hold and right mouse click to select all. Grab the ore and move it over to the floating cargo hold, pause 5 seconds. (The 5-second pause allows for game lag and helps the macro run smoothly.

Step 6
Hold down the Ctrl key and hit M. A screen will pop up indicating the Capture is complete. Click Ok and go back to the Macro Express. Scroll down the list of macros until you see the macro you have just created “ Mining Test 1” and right mouse click on it. Scroll down to “ Edit with Scripting Editor” and left mouse click on this line.

Under commands scroll down to the Repeat icon and left mouse click on it. Click on “Repeat Start” Now just to the right of this screen are three arrows click on the top one with the blue plus sign. A repeat screen will appear, enter 100 into the repeat count and click Ok.

Now under commands click the Repeat End; click the bottom arrow with the red plus sign. Do a file save and your Marco is ready to use.

Step 7
Alt tab back into Eve and hold down the Ctrl key and hit M your macro will start.

To stop your macro at anytime hold down the Scroll lock key and then push the Pause key.

Advanced Macros

Comfortable with making a macro, lets try an advanced macro which will undock your ship fly out to the ore field mine redock unload the ore and repeat.

This will take a bit of planning first and you will need bookmarks.

To create your set of bookmarks undock from the station and look for the closest moon or planet. Left click on it and make a bookmark, warp to this planet or moon. Now warp back to the station at 15 km . Left click on the station and lock it, double click just below the station so you fly underneath it in a straight line. When you are 10km past the station stop your ship and jettison something from your cargo hold into space. (If you have nothing in your cargo hold just drag a bookmark from your folder into your cargo hold and jettison the bookmark).

Bookmark this floating container as Dock. When you warp from the planet or moon you should arrive 0 km away from dock which will allow you to dock within a few seconds with no delay.

Now fly out to the Asteroid field, pick a rock in the middle of the field and lock it, fly 10km past and make another bookmark and call it ore.

You should now have 3 bookmarks, a planet or moon, Dock and Ore.

Expand your overview settings ( top right corner), and left mouse click overview to go into settings. Click Deselect All. Now go through the list and only click Veldspar, Scordite, Pyroxeres and Plagioclase.

These will now appear in your overview settings, click the distance tab to sort them showing the closest rock first.

Warp back to the station and dock, open up your ship hanger and your cargo hold so 2 rectangles are on your screen one above the other. I use the ship hanger for dropping my ore into as the items hanger will get loaded with ore and can stop your macro from working. When you dock and drop your ore into the ship hanger it will automatically go into your item hanger.

Ok everything should be set to make the advanced mining macro.

Start up macro express and begin a capture, using Ctrl Z this time.


Pause 5 seconds

Click the minus button a few times to zoom out

Left mouse click on the screen to bring up your bookmarks, scroll down to Ore and right mouse click on “ Warp to location within 15km “

Once you’re at the Asteroid belt, pause 5 seconds

Move your mouse over to the Overview settings box and lock the first rock.

Pause 5 seconds

Activate your miner, and wait until your cargo hold is full of ore.

Pause 5 seconds

Left mouse click on the screen to bring up your bookmarks, scroll down to Planet or Moon and right mouse click on “ Warp to location within 15km “

Once you have arrived at the moon or planet, pause 5 seconds. Note: the reason for warping to the planet or moon first then to dock is so you will always arrive at the same distance to dock regardless of which belt you are mining at.

Left mouse click on the screen to bring up your bookmarks, scroll down to Dock and right mouse click on “Warp to location within 15km”

Once you have arrived at the Dock, pause 5 seconds.

Move your mouse over the left top of the screen where system name is and left mouse click to bring up the station menu. Scroll down to the station your at and click dock.

Once you have docked, pause 5 seconds

Move your ore from your cargo hold to the ship hanger floor, hold down the Ctrl key and hit the Z key end your capture.

Edit your new macro so it will repeat itself 100 times.

Start up your new macro and go to bed, when you wake up your hanger floor will be full of ore.

Enjoy Macro Mining!

    rule 7:”You must not use other software to gain an unfair advantage in the game. “

    cheating: “To violate rules deliberately, as in a game”

    In my world, macroing + rule 7 = cheating, not being resourceful….
    for example, if someone cheats on a test in school, it’s still considered cheating, not “being resourceful off of someone else’s paper”

    Posted May 21, 2007 at 12:12 pm

    first off, for all those who think macroing is ‘cheating’, let me ask a question. WHY ARE YOU LOOKING FOR MACROS IF YOUR AGAINST THEM? people are here looking to read an article, and dont care if you are against macros. second, none of you aparently understand anything about computers. macros are not programs. hence the name macro. a macro is a series of commands to automate a task. it is simply a script that can do or repeat a task. a program for eve would be concidered a bot. bots and programs can be customized for different systems in eve. they have an easy gui in most cases, and can be customized to be user friendly. macros have no gui, cannot be run by people without the program they were written in generally, and cannot be customized easily, thus meaning they are usually written for one scenario by the user.

  26. wowzer
    Posted May 31, 2007 at 3:42 am

    For all those against this i have a few things to say:

    1) mining is the most boring and slow way of making money for ingame use;
    2) mineral prices are kept constant by the macrominers, and fluctuated by traders that are not using macros for that (they can`t);
    3) mineral prices would rise if all miners would have to stay there and mine for hours and hours… noob miners would simply give it up and start something else, as the yeld is infinitely small and the amount of time spent is huge;
    4) if the prices for minerals go up, so do the prices for ships and items, therefore making everything more expensive and making everyone work harder and dedicate more time to staying ingame (unless you are a total computer addict allready, i doubt you would like to spend hours at a time doing nothing but smacktalking on chats and mining)
    5) next time you buy a cheap ship think about the macros that mined the ore for it to be built at that price.

    conclusion: unless the game mechanism is fundamentally changed, macrominers should be allowed but strictly controlled because imo one account with a macrominer is no big deal, plenty of them for one user may become a problem and should not be allowed.

    ISK sellers should be tracked and banned, i personally do not fully agree with that, although in some cases it is what earns people their very existance… sad, i know…

    so consider all this before you go around pointing fingers. there are worse things than macrominers. think about the npc-ing bots… placed in deep 0.0 earn more money than any macro-miner however skilled it is… plus the trading manipulation of markets and so on… the list of bad things is pretty long, one guy in a miner using a macro seems to me like the least important.

    Posted July 18, 2007 at 11:29 am

    This works. it does not work great but it works. I look at it this way.

    I mine for 100 cycles of the macro with a frigate. I get a little extra ore while I am at work and in bed sleeping. I am not strip mining belt after belt after belt leaving nothing for other players. I would say I get 75% of what I could get if I could just get the timing down, lag kills the macro on a regular basis.. I sit outside a station and activate the mining lasers on nothing. The amount of ore I mine from my macro is next to nothing, I can mine 3 times that amount in an hour vs what the macro does in 7 – 8. Call it what you will, you all came to this post interested in what it had to say… So far I have read a few posts saying it works most are just whining that its happening. Wake up Noobs! macro’s have been around for a long time… they aint going away any time soon, I have been using macro’s for 15+ years now for games or making my life easier on the computer. Oh… and please check your spelling before you submit… (zameganoob the spelling crack was NOT directed at you).

    Posted August 6, 2007 at 12:06 pm

    nice article, i put a few twist on it when i use it.. setup in a system with only 1 station and just use the dock command to go right there. I find warping is where i get most of my lag, so the less warping you do the more efficient this will get. Now if i could just get a bigger ship ><

    anyone crying about using it #1 is a mindless twit with nothing better to do on a bright sunny saturday afternoon, but mine their brain out and go blind staring at a monitor. or #2 like someone else said, they’re pissed they didnt know about this a LONG time ago

    There are two fantastic mining macros for sale on ebay. One is for Eve Online and one is for Runescape. I bought both and must say that both are the best I have ever seen.


    Runescape has more random events that can throw off a macro than Eve does so you can run an Eve macro all day and all night safely (for the most part). Runescape macros need a bit more monitoring. But, I’ve been using the Eve one for over 2 years and the Runescape one for about 3 weeks and have never been banned or warned for either one.

    Using the newest build of EVE (as of March 23) and Vista Home Prem x64 SP1. I got the macro program to work, but it wont integrate with the EVE window at all. I start the recording process, but I can’t use the hotkeys with my mouse in the eve window, and any movements in the window are not recorded. When I play it back I watch my mouse move toward the eve window and stop right at the edge, 10 seconds go by and the mouse appears on the other side where I deactivated the recording. Anyone else get this problem?

    Posted April 10, 2008 at 1:24 am

    Well, If you want to see the isk rolling in, try GhostMiner. you can try it for free and can even get your money back within 60 days. We have a ventrilo channel thats free to get help on, I’m on it at least 14 hours a day. I’m -5 GMT and start around 9 am till as late as 1-2 am sometimes, petty much, 7 days a week.
    And yes, you can get band for using a macrominer, but, GhostMiner isn’t even close to a macrominer. It operates your ship just like you do. Will continue to train skills after one has finished, can haul point to point, even log on and off and take breaks, check the market at random. Even engages NPC’s and returns the drones to the bay after the targets been destroyed.

    This is a quote from the EULA…pretty straight forward…

    # You may not use your own or third-party software to modify any content appearing within the Game environment or change how the Game is played.
    # You may not use macros or other stored rapid keystrokes or other patterns of play that facilitate acquisition of items, currency, objects, character attributes, rank or status at an accelerated rate when compared with ordinary Game play. You may not rewrite or modify the user interface or otherwise manipulate data in any way to acquire items, currency, objects, character attributes or beneficial actions not actually acquired or achieved in the Game.

    You may not use macros or other stored rapid keystrokes or other patterns of play that facilitate acquisition of items, currency, objects, character attributes, rank or status AT AN ACCELERATED RATE WHEN COMPARED WITH ORDINARY GAME PLAY. You may not rewrite or modify the user interface or otherwise manipulate data in any way to acquire items, currency, objects, character attributes or beneficial actions not actually acquired or achieved in the Game.

    I capped the area of interest…This macrominer would ficilitate acquisition of items AT GAME RATE not AT AN ACCELERATED RATE…it just lets you keep that GAME RATE while not sitting at the computer.


  63. TP
    Posted April 28, 2008 at 4:33 pm

    Bob, got it right, IMO. This macro does not run the game or allow aquistion of anything at an accelerated rate. Seriously, what about keyboards that allow for hotkeys? Alot of gamers use them, and if you hold #72’s view of the EULA then you are in violation if you use and you should be taken out behind the chemical sheds and shot.

    Posted May 5, 2008 at 5:05 pm

    My thoughts exactly. However as someone already noticed above, a text script for an interpreter like MacroExpress doesn’t quite cut it. Any minor hiccup like a common lag spike is very likely to screw up the chain of recorded events thus resulting in a broken macro.

    That’s why you want an application that is especially designed to read the screen and react to an ever changing environment exactly like a human would. I am using TinyMiner from: http://eve.power-gamers.net/index.html and never looked back ever since.

    After trying Tiny Miner using the trial I was very impressed with how efficient it was. It’s nothing complicated and I found no bugs or problems what so ever.

    I bought the TinyMinerPlus and it was delivered within a few hours by email. I added their contact person on MSN and he was online soon after to help me register my copy and activate the forum account.

    Overall I would recommend Tiny Miner because it is efficient and gets the job done. The support is also excellent. You know when you found a great application when their customer support is real and you can actually find them online should you have a question.

    I’m not a shill; I’m a real EVE player. With TinyMiner, what you see really is what you get.

    It’s fast and easy to set up, it doesn’t modify your EVE directory files in any way, and it’s simple, yet elegant and effective. It takes you out of the station, warps to a belt, mines ore, returns to station, drops off the ore, and repeats. If needed, it will launch drones and use boosters. The GUI for the program is simple and very easy to understand, and you can program it to maximize your mining efficiency. It’s worth giving it a try at:

    You will need to follow the instructions on the website to set it up correctly, it requires a certain resolution etc to run.

    Posted June 13, 2008 at 12:06 pm

    You know, I’ve tried several of the macro’s listed here. Went out and searched the internet for a few others. But, I have to say that of all the macro’s I’ve found, GhostMiner tops them all. They have a guy in ventrilo that will help you set it up if you can’t get it going by following the PDF’s that are available, (great PDF’s too, very easy to follow.) and he’ll get you going even if you haven’t purchased the program. It does look a bit scary when you look at the preferences because it’s full of numbers, but I followed the PDF and it worked right out of the box.
    It’s not a true macro. It’s actually a program. Uses random areas to click in, pauses, acts very human-like. even has a skill-trainer in it, as well as ptp hauling with no limit on the # of gates. Oh, it’ll even gate mine in a system that doesn’t have a station!!
    I recently purchased 5 keys for the price of 4 and have all 5 of my miners running 18 hours a day. They each average around 80 mill isk a day, when I haul the ore to the best market.
    Try it out. You can run it for free to see that it runs. but it only does 1 run at a time. Best part about it, it doesn’t launch the drones until the npc’s are close enough to engage. When they are, it launches, engages, waits till there aren’t any npc’s left, then recalls the drones to the bay. It even checks to see if I’ve lost a dron to reload one, if necessary.

    My thoughts exactly. However as someone already noticed above, a text script for an interpreter like MacroExpress doesn’t quite cut it. Any minor hiccup like a common lag spike is very likely to screw up the chain of recorded events thus resulting in a broken macro.

    That’s why you want an application that is especially designed to read the screen and react to an ever changing environment exactly like a human would. I am using TinyMiner from: http://eve.power-gamers.net/index.html and never looked back ever since.

    After trying Tiny Miner using the trial I was very impressed with how efficient it was. It’s nothing complicated and I found no bugs or problems what so ever.

    I bought the TinyMinerPlus package and it was delivered within a few hours by email. I added their contact person on MSN and he was online soon after to help me register my copy and activate the forum account.

    Overall I would recommend Tiny Miner because it is efficient and gets the job done. The support is also excellent. You know when you found a great application when their customer support is real and you can actually find them online should you have a question.

    I’m not a shill I’m a real EVE player. With TinyMiner, what you see really is what you get.

    It’s fast and easy to set up, it doesn’t modify your EVE directory files in any way, and it’s simple, yet elegant and effective. It takes you out of the station, warps to a belt, mines ore, returns to station, drops off the ore, and repeats. If needed, it will launch drones and use boosters. The GUI for the program is simple and very easy to understand, and you can program it to maximize your mining efficiency. It’s well worth giving it a try at:


    All I have to say is Awesome program! I have had the program for a little over 2 weeks and in that time, once i tweaked some settings, i have mined enough minerals to help in my manufacturing and sales to earn my first free 60 day time card. This would take me much longer to have achieved if i manual mine the minerals myself. Keep up the great work and thanks for all the quick Tech Support.

    Macroing though not fair to the normal gamer that takes the time to play the game has been around as long as games have. They are part of the game culture.

    Regular players just do not like them, for they are too afraid to try it for themself because of seeing all the posts designed to scare new players. Some have this overdeveloped sense of ethics and morals and forget these are nothing but games for people to have fun with in what ever way floats their boat the most.

    I have macroed on several games before never having any bad results from it ever. Never banned, never hacked, never lost anything because of it. Why and how? Because I took the time to learn and understand the macro or bot I was using and then modify it to fit my needs and not just how it was orginally used.

    Stop crying over it, stop getting all offended. Stop griefing others for using them. Grow up and stop being little children and expecting everyone else to play the game YOU want them to play so YOU can be better then them.

    nah in the rules of EVE they say not to use any tools that will give you an unfair advantage ect. or something like that however personaly if i didnt use a macro i would spend all day trying to make some good cash people forget games are for FUN and i am not going to spend hours trying to make cash on a GAME when i can get this macro to do it for me if i get banned (highly unlikely) i dont care its better than wasting my life the other way

    Posted December 18, 2008 at 5:27 pm

    Macros are iligal but ignored mostly by CCP. I see macros that use 1.5 year old chracters so yes the risk is you loose a acount if you use one. the tric is to use a seperate acount and pay for it with the isk you earn.

  91. I love you
    Posted December 31, 2008 at 5:39 pm

    Alright this was the best guide in the world. Thank you very much, this worked to perfection and i am rolling in the big ISK. Macroing is not cheating, cheating is something that gives you the advantage over someone else, this gives no advantage, just saves time. alot of time

  93. anger much?
    Posted January 12, 2009 at 10:21 am

    given everyones oh so very thought out comments, i’d say there’s a lot of anger going around. yes we established CCP doesn’t condone macros, but unless players who are KNOWN for using them are petitioned, they can’t do anything. a macro is nothing more then an AI performing the same things that a player would if he/she was sitting at the computer. to those that think terminating eve macro users is the best solution, then over half the eve populace will vanish, which can be both good and bad. to those that think macros are cheats, well technically they are, but you wont know if a diehard player is actually using a macro or is actually there himself/herself playing. some are in normal corps, who run the macro while still sitting at the computer, but more preoccupied with other matters, while others are in npc corps who just macro day and night doing nothing better with their time other then sleep. now a macro does technically give an advantage, but also doesn’t, depending where the pilot actually is or what the pilots doing. and to all the useless spam comment’s… i got nothing other then whats the point, seriously. I’ve run macro’s while trying to work with programs, but not games. i can see why so many would be angry at them, but it’s a wasted effort. and to all those using them, best of luck to ya.

  94. Market Maniac
    Posted February 7, 2009 at 8:26 am

    CCP knows how many people macro mine. So much of the EVE populace do it, and CCP stripped down to it is a business. Yes Macro mining can be argued either way to the EULA, but CCP cares about money as well as player experience. If they get rid of all the macro miners, they just took a major income cut, and if you’re out to make money, you don’t do something that slashes your income. Also, without macro miners, the in game market would crash. People don’t want to sit at their computers all day mining. Without all those minerals the macro miners mine, less ships can be made, therefor, prices would drastically rise, people would get pissed off that no matter how hard they try, they just can’t aford that ship or module, and quit because it is no longer fun. That takes away from the player experience as well.

    So to all you macro mining haters, Take a moment to think about the game mechanics, and how EVERYONE contributes to how it all works before opening your mouths.

    And no, I am not a macro miner. I prefer to sit there in front of the computer. Maybe it’s boredom, maybe paranoia, but at least I know how much macro miners mean to the way things work.

    Hate me if you want, but I support.

    I would suggest visiting http://www.simpleminer.com for any macro mining needs. In my experience they have a very professional team and a top notch macro! Their macro, Simple Miner, is not detectable, highly reliable, and extremely efficient. It even has a built in profit calculator so you can figure out exactly how much ore/isk you are yielding and adjust as necessary.

    Check Simple Miner out and download a trial:

    Macros are against the EULA which you have agreed to in order to play EVE. Breaking this agreement can result in a deduction of ISK or skillpoints or even the banning of you account.

  105. Posted July 1, 2009 at 4:57 am

    CCP don’t even care. They only ban if someone reports them. There are lots of things they can do to prevent macro miners, but they don’t. The same goes for spammers in chat.

    I found a great way to make even more money than using a mining bot. Follow around some mining ships and if they appear to be using a bot or macro, you attack them, destroy them, and loot them. Since no one is around to control their ship and defend it against the attack, it is an easy kill. I’ve got half a dozen kills doing this already, and not only is it easy money, but it’s a lot of fun as well!

    Lol check it out…in eve we live in a modern computer age…why couldnt you program your ship to mine while you rest. I’snt that what computers are for. You think those brand new shiny cars you drive in were all made by a man. Think again. This is part of the reason CCP dosent condone it but wont punish you for it. Computers are the present and even getting more advanced for the future. There are also pirate corps that do try to hunt down all miners but love hit macro miners even more. No resistance of anykind when they do. Free money and we/they keep them/me making money. They know it, ask them.

    Next is you need a better miner then a frig and a lesser miner then a hulk. You wouldnt want to lose that hulk of 200,000,000ISK unless 200mil is no prob to ya. Get a covetor of only 20,000,000ISK or even better a retriever of only 5,000,000ISK. I make my own of both so I am stocked up. I make more even when I lose a ship. Plus it is insured. I lose one now and again. Oh well…worth it.

    I agree with others here about the cry babies. You guys are just mad cause you all skilled in other crap to make money. I make money in all aspects of the game (manufacturing, missions, and trading…now on my alt account.. pirating might be better lol) but noone can ever say mining is for nothing. Mining is my bread and butter baby. I do mining manual too but I use macros as well. I will make more then any of you crying babies in 1 day of mining then you can at any other skilled area in 3-4 days.

    Whaaa whaaaa cry to someone who actually cares…hope to catch ya hauling through a 0.5 gate someday ahhh hell any gate will do.

    PEACE!!! (guess you dont like pirates either huh Part of the game though wouldnt you say) Go play spongebob on your xbox ya little cry babies!!!
