old mining was good and prices right.
I now have to crush my eyes on the Forum, Inara, Google to buy trit because mining is weak. Hitting painite was risky but it's the best option to keep the new FC and yourself.
Information for players who have a problem with money, proposes mining Painite buy tritium and switch FC to a good HotSpot. Use INARA to search for a sell system to a minimum of 690K to get out of the hole.
 
We'd like to make it clear that any negative impact on locating and mining Tritium is unintentional and the intention is for Tritium to remain as accessible as it was prior to Patch 3.
Early indications are that this has not been achieved and that a significant decrease is still evident in the amount of tritium available in Tri2s and Tri3s as against Patch 3 - albeit better than it was yesterday. For carriers in the black who have been stranded for nearing a month, this looks like another let down. If the intention was to reduce Tritium mining availability, then please say that (as the above quote says completely the opposite). If not, then I'd ask you to urgently look into the issue. I'm sure more data will come from the players later today to evidence the problem.
 
The easiest fix for this is to have fleet carriers start passively scooping 200 tons of tritium per day.
Make those NPC's earn all the upkeep credits we throw at them.

If a CMDR wants to move their fleet carrier faster than ~1 jump per day, then they can go mine more.
At least with fleet carriers passively scooping roughly one jump of fuel per day, they wouldn't be currently stranded.

I like this idea, but my FC is out in the black with just my three CMDRs. Apart from the crew, there shouldn't be any NPCs around to scoop for me. If there are I will put them off the ship. If they're really lucky, I may read them some of my poetry first.
 
Greetings Commanders,


Thanks for your feedback on the latest patch! We understand that some of the changes had unexpected effects and want to address them:


Overlapping Hotspots Commodity Distribution
With Patch 3 we implemented a change that was primarily intended to bring down the effects of multiple overlapping hotspots, especially on rarer commodities (such as Low Temperature Diamonds). We're currently looking at data from the live game to determine the actual impact that it is having and will review this based on our projections. If the data does not meet our expectations we will be making changes accordingly.


Tritium
One of the most noted points of feedback we've seen so far is that the rarity of Tritium has been negatively impacted. We'd like to make it clear that any negative impact on locating and mining Tritium is unintentional and the intention is for Tritium to remain as accessible as it was prior to Patch 3.


Limited Purchasing on Fleet Carriers
Fleet Carrier purchase orders are now limited to a maximum order of 2bn Credits. This was omitted from the patch notes and we apologise for any confusion this has caused.


Console Players
A small update will take place tomorrow around midday for Xbox and Playstation users. This update won't contain any noticeable changes, but lays the groundwork for future bug fixes.



Finally, we would like to thank you all for your great feedback, we have been listening and watching and we appreciate your patience and support.



UPDATE: We are investigating the issues above, and are working on a patch. We will update you with the date for this patch as soon as we have it. Thank you for your continued patience.



o7 Commanders.
Did the tritium issue get fixed? Or are the dssa carrier carrying tritium for deep space pilots? I cant find any solution to the weak yields mining tritium.
 
The final solution is at this thread, which was doubling the efficiency of tritium for FC jumps.
That doesn't help if you are going to somewhere like Beagle Point and need more Tritium than your FC can hold and there is nowhere to buy it. I just did a Colonia trip and on my way to Sagittarius A*. I tried mining triple overlap hotspots in icy rings and mined 4 Tritium in as many hours. It's a joke and I'm moving on to other games. (Edited for clarity)

Edited for clarity but unless you are a new player you should know what I mean.

No, i'm not a new player and No, i have no idea what you mean.
You should be doing at least 100t per hour in a random hotspot. Waaay more in certain perfect overlaps.

However if you're doing only 4 tritium in 4 hours, yes - you should really move to other games.

Actually it helped quite a bit though. With the current efficiency, it only takes between 10 and 15 thousand Tritium to reach Beagle Point (depending on whether you intend to arrive empty or with fuel for the return journey). With careful planning, you can literally go to the far end of the galaxy and back without ever having to mine for Tritium.

Perhaps I misunderstand you, but you can certainly go from the bubble to Beagle Point without mining or buying Tritium. Your carrier can store almost 25,000t of it. You then need to buy it from yourself and transfer it to your Tritium store. It's a bit silly, and you need something like a Cutter to help you do it 720t at a time, but it's easy enough.

As to mining, I too am confused. Did you really only mine 4t in 4 hours?
