i'd rather use my Ship interior for this...
if something like that is ever introduced.
i think the button is fine as it is, the whole Ore thing is an annoyance as it is, turning it into something even more time consuming would be even more annoying.
but i think there should be items / temporary buffs / different modes to change the actual refining rates.
i suggest 3 modes:
if you dont have much time to play or just play casually, you can refine your ore in SLOW mode, but get more refined dilithium out of it.
Say if you only played for 2000 Ore a day, that you get 2500 Refined instead out of it, but you are limited to refine 5000 a day instead of 8000
the less you convert the more of a bonus percentage you will get.
maybe add some sort of *random chance* to it? you get a secure 10% bonus, a rather common 25% bonus and a super rare chance at a 50% bonus. the further you get to the max of 5000 the lower the chance gets.
normal mode would be the normal 1:1 ratio 8000 for 8000 with fixed 8000 limit as it is now.
FAST would allow for a higher limit per day, say 12000 instead of 8000, but the ratio would be worse, think 0,75:1
same chance system could apply here.
so if you play a LOT and only on one char, and your dilithium piles up, without you being able to refine it fast enough (i am sure there are a few players like that) -> you could refine faster but for diminished returns.
of course this would be 100% optional for the Player....
and maybe add some sort of minigame to it, like tribble breeding or whatever to increase / decrease your critical hit chance...
but something that is more passive in the background than an active activity that you have to spend much time on every day.
