Does anyone understand what the top (Luxury) part of this means? And at the bottom, next to each potential colony are pictures of these luxuries with percentages next to them.

The manual says you just need 10 luxuries.

So (1) how can you tell if you have your 10 luxuries? and (2) what the heck does any of the luxury information mean in the Expansion Planner?

Thanks,

Expansion planner shows your possible planets that you can colonize and what value they hold. So if you see one with rare luxury items you better colonize it so you can make some money.

You have a "sources" column in expanstion planner for each resource. As long as you see a non-zero value for at least ten luxury ones....[:)]




Bingeling -> RE: Expansion Planner (11/11/2011 9:24:06 AM)

Hm, I would think a colony cares less of your sources, than having 10 different luxuries in its inventory. 10 different luxury sources may help a lot in getting 10 different luxuries to each colony, though.

Data, ahh, thank you.

Any idea what the percentages are in the POTENTIAL COLONIES (bottom half of Expansion Planner) for the Luxuries? For example, say the Planet Sigma XI might have Ekeras Meat and some other stuff pictured next to it. When you hold the cursor over the Sigma XI luxuries, it will say something like "Ekeras Meat 28%."

28% of what? It does not correlate to the top half of the Expansion Planner where all the Luxuries are listed.

Its the speed of extraction. I am not sure yet if it means less in 5 seconds or the same 10 seconds later... though that does not matter. It means the efficiency of the ressource. A world with low rate metall might not be worthy of your best mining stations... that is all.




Data -> RE: Expansion Planner (11/12/2011 8:46:23 AM)

You can compensate even for that if you really need it with more extractors, the extraction rate depends on these two factors and they are cumulative.




Sithuk -> RE: Expansion Planner (11/12/2011 8:51:48 AM)

Data: You mention the two extraction factors are cumulative. Is there a hard cap on extraction rate?




Data -> RE: Expansion Planner (11/12/2011 9:02:42 AM)

Hmm, never went that far with testing so I actually don't know [:)]




feelotraveller -> RE: Expansion Planner (11/12/2011 11:12:47 AM)

If there is a hard cap it is so high as to not count. The practical cap is how quickly resources are collected from the base mining them. Better extraction rates usually just mean faster reaching of maximum cargo in the hold.
