I decided to try and build some super mining stations, because I have a critical deficiency of hydrogen... as in ~0 sources (i build them and they disappear) of hydrogen on a 700 planet empire in sandbox (last empire standing).
I think it might be the pirates, so I decided to:
1. Arm it a little.
2. Armor and shield it better
3. Give it enough mining capacity to justify the above.
the question is... if I double the amount of gas mining component, will it double the rate at which it mines gas? Would a mining station with 10x mining component, 10x the amount of normal storage, and 10x the amount of docking bays produce the same amount of gas as 10 separate mining stations with normal amount of the above? (and before you scoff about the extra docking bays, I am having traffic jams on my gas mining stations... my demand is for 3485.2K of hydrogen, I produce a fraction of it, its price is at 50, and at last count I had:
3496 small freighters
2740 medium freighters
1509 large freighters
486 passenger ships
those are just the latest models, but there are only a few dozen of older models... under 200 total.
But anyways... yea, I have lots of ships.
I do not have a superman complex; for I am God, not Superman.
