PI - Program Output Wrong?

So, when I move my extractor heads around, get it all lined up, the program output will show a total of somewhere around 1.3 to 1.5 million.

I install the program, submit the change, then open up the extractor to view the program, and it's showing an output somewhere around 500-600k, having not even finished the first cycle yet.

Is this intended?

You have to train your Planetology skills in order to see accurate estimates. On low levels the estimates before submitting the program are quite bad. I have Planet at IV and Advanced Planet at III and still the deviation can be 10-20%.

When you setup your program you are looking at program output/hour.

When you click the extractor control unit it shows current cycle output - cycles are 30 minutes so it should be roughly half.

Working as intended!

Wrong by a large margin. Yes, it's working as intended, no it is not because he's reading the screen wrong. ECUs tell you per cycle, per hour, and total extraction. The planetology skill pair increases the accuracy of the ECU's estimated results to the actual true results. AFAIK, the actual yield is always lower than what the ECU originally estimates.

Thank you everyone for answers; I was always wondering just how useful (advanced) planetology skills were; now I know lol.
