Is it against the rules for me to make a bot for farming? Just farming since it is so repetitive

But the bot is not playing the game for me, it is gathering resources, it's not like I am making a bot to farm exe or blobs or do pvp

I'd just say in general consider any program/script/bot/whatever that would move your ship or shoot your weapons as a bannable offense.

I was warned by devs to stop using my bot script even tho it was a simple idle script that fired at anyone who came within range, which was a very very short range and took forever to update. Couldn't actually kill anyone unless they weren't trying to defend themselves at all. Others have been warned about using a farming bot as well. The one thing they've never bothered me about was my artifact recycle script and crew training script(both now useless after updates that negated the need) so yeah if it involves moving your ship farther than a quick turn to prevent log outs then you will get a warning for sure.

What if I was to make a bot that moves EXACTLY like all the other bots? Would it still not be aloud?

WelcomeBot and DreadBot do not move at all, apart from the initial "tap" on the accelerator to get them off the middle of the warp gate. They do not rotate whatsoever, ever.

But as to farming bots, or a bot that flies after you to help you in some fashion, that's definitely a no. We'll ban the living daylights out of stuff like that :)

I mean like the AF Peacekeepers if I made a bot like those and had its cargo at 100% (by my main acc) would it be aloud? I mean its not really doing much other then moving and attacking like the AF Peacekeepers.

just make it undetectable.
there are some bots playing around instead of players, collecting dailies and so on.
there are like 2 or 3 of them around for sure.
Statistically talking, not like I've done one ;)
