Rev-Enging Mission Boards

I totally left a bit off that post XD

What I meant to say was the mission server probably generates the rewards, but hasn't been updated with the new prices. Meanwhile, the "Avg Value" we see for goods as mission rewards is probably fetched by the client.

But how to solve it? Reducing mineral rewards galactic average value? Impossible. Increasing mission credit rewards to equal it? Impossible again, as missions will pay a min ~2M credits to avoid this, and the whole balancing gone... Removing minerals from rewards? Make things more complicated, a half solution. Reducing mineral amounts as reward? You will got 10 palladiums and not 39. Very bad.

? Not sure I understand your post.

The mission server is[1] just using old galactic average values for commodities, and hasn't been updated. So, update those values, and everything's fixed. It's just two data sets that are out of synch on FD's side. No biggy.

[1] Presumably. Nobody knows for sure except the devs.

Yey, they are back finally. Three in a row.

What about these types of missions? Useless? Even with four mining in a wing?

Thanx! I got these types of 50M reward missions for Indite, etc. They all work in the same way? Just buy and its OK? Seems to be a bit of "cheating" for me. :)

Yeah it's fine, and no it's not cheating. All the non-mineable mining missions have large tonnage requirements... it'd be ridiculous to even attempt them by actually mining (they really should be supply missions...)

Working as intended, apparently. :)
On Monday we rolled out the Mining and Trade changes described in the post and made some adjustments which we'll continue to examine and tweak as necessary. For now, they seem to have had the expected impact but your continued feedback is welcome.

Though of course, it could end up a bit self-limiting...
 
So, just a note here while it's fresh in my mind.

I'm kinda curious about what might specifically cause wing missions now. Having docked in the lagoon sector, one faction offers 17 mining missions, but I note they are all solo missions; no wing mining missions. It is in an investment state, so I suppose that could be affecting it?
 
A couple more observations while they're fresh in my head.

  • Planetary Surface Scan jobs seem to fail if you're destroyed before completing them, but are OK afterwards.
  • Conflicting behaviour between Illegal Salvage missions vs Legal salvage missions.
. - If you obtain the salvage and are then destroyed on a Legal salvage mission, the original mission location marker reappears, but no mission USS appear
. - If you obtain the salvage and are then destroyed on an Illegal salvage mission, the mission is still in it's updated state telling you to return to the station, and no more mission USS appear either (no mission marker at the original location either)

Basically, you're screwed if you salvage all cargo and are destroyed, though Legal missions seem like you're meant to be able to go back and get the cargo, even though you can't, while Illegal are basically just bugged out. Would be cleaner if this ship destruction failed the mission in both cases.

i can add to salvage missions, that they behave the same if you sell the mission cargo at a black market instead of handing in.
