It was estimated that some of the top-10-commanders in CG1 managed to mine around 400 tons per hour.
I was in a wing with Jake P on the first day (He had the #1 spot on CG1) and we had the same ship, just slightly different loadout.It was estimated that some of the top-10-commanders in CG1 managed to mine around 400 tons per hour.
Takes me about two hours (maybe less) to fill up my 512 ton cargohold when wing-mining in the Bauxite hotspot.
It's all about the right amount of lasers and limpets and teamwork.
Been there, done that. Except it was an asteroid while I was trying to lower the cargo hatch. At least the shields and hull reinforcement package saved me.... but I didn't hold "B" down long enough and it registered as a boost... into the back wall...full speed...no shields. Lost it all...
I have my 'Conda doing @ 67 LY hops in 'Explorer' mode...after WP5 - I 'swung by' Colonia for first time - and bought as much 'top shelf' mining gear as I could lay my hands on (not being sure what the CG at EA would offer...)...After I got to EA - I paid the transfer fee to move the mining gear (as well as well as a bigger Power Plant from my home port in the Bubble to keep the mining lasers happy)...My little ‘conda does 138 tons with a fully loaded refinery. I can get this up to 360 tons if I radically reconfigure my ship. But that is still a lot of trips.
Doubtful - in the past when the start of a CG has been flubbed they tend to drop the requirements rather than extend the time period. And since we've already reached a high tier they won't bother dropping the requirements...
Since we were unable to access the board for a day, are they going to extend it a day?
Mine is outfitted with 3x 64t racks, too..
I am using a 192t Python. 2,564 delivered and I am in Top 10%. You are close
I just broke 1k in my Python. Missed the first 4 days due to the mission board bug and I was AFK for the w/end. Should get a few hours this evening to see if lvl 11 is do-able, but also make sure I stay in top 25%. Hoping to get another 2-3 loads done in the time left.Mine is outfitted with 3x 64t racks, too.
Just dont forget to fill up your refinery to get 10t free cargo space
I doubt I will have some gaming time until tomorrow evening, so that ship has sailed
