Take a look at UY-922g.
UY-922g is a humble planet. Its a gas giant 6 FTL jumps away from Moria. It’s only redeeming feature is its liquid Neon deposit.
And man oh man does it redeem the planet. The concentration of NE on UY-922g is 7.06% giving us a daily extraction of 4.94 units of NE per RIG per day. Eh, not so much.
But wait! There’s more!
RIG is the smallest area resource extraction facility, as well as the lowest staffing requirement. All up, UY-922g can pack in 80 RIG and 24 HB1 supporting 2,400 crazed pioneers.
You had my curiosity, now you have my attention!
Lets get some experts up in that mix! 5 Resource Extraction experts for a 28.4% increase in output. 507.4368 units of NE per day with 100% efficiency.
OH MAN OH MAN OH MAN!
Lets wind it back a bit and stick to math we already know. Consumables cost per RIG for RAT, DW, OVE is 220.95 at MM offer, this lowers our total output, but lets us use real math. Our new total daily output is 424.4448 units of NE per day.
Now, its 6 FTL jumps from Moria, so we are gonna pay 12k per round trip to the MM. We are going to pay 17,676 in consumables every day.
EATING LIKE KINGS!
Here’s where it gets good, right. NE has a MM request at a whopping 285 per unit.
That’s right! We pay 41.645 in consumables, and 30 in fuel per unit of NE that we produce. Now we sell it for 285 and make 213.355 PROFIT per unit of NE. Multiplied by our daily production, and we get 90,557.42 PROFIT per day!
WHERE DO I SIGN UP??? I’M GONNA COLIQ AND DO IT!!!
Not so fast, bucko! Its a T3 Gas Giant, so it will need 1 HSE per building, 1 AEF and 10 INF per area. We can’t even make any of that…
