Any ideas why I am mining less today than yesterday?

I am running a procurer with Tech 2 strip Miners and veldspar crystals.

Yesterday I was getting 1462 every 149 seconds which was like 9.3m/s

Today I’m getting 1462 every 165.5 which is 8.8m/s

Same ship, nothing different. Only thing I can think of is that the crystals are slightly damaged but I’ve never noticed a difference with damaged crystals. That doesn’t lower your ability to mine more does it?

The only other thing is that I have started training mining barge up to 5 now. But that shouldn’t reduce the amount that I can mine either.

Any thoughts?

Shouldn’t be any change even if crystals are damaged, haven’t heard of any changes.

Same booster using same boosting charges?

Same everything. I have always mined at 9.3. Now it’s at 8.8. I literally went from mining at 9.3 and then have some lunch and then came back and I was minding at 8.8. No changes in the ship at all.

The game recognized you haven’t purchased a mining permit and has throttled your mining efficiency back. Please contact a member of Safety. to purchase your permit.


Maybe you changed clones, which had mining yield boost?

This looks suspiciously like some numbers I computed a month ago examining the effects of the EDENCOM system-wide 10% mining speed buff. 90% of your 165.5 “unbuffed” cycle time comes out to be 148.95 with such a buff. I don’t know enough about EDENCOM/Trig mechanics to know how those buffs come and go from particular systems, so I can’t conclusively say “this is it”.

Seems possible that this is caused by a system-wide buff or debuff.

Did you notice now or earlier if you were mining in an Edencom system, Trig system, or was there perhaps an Exotic storm?

It’s got to be that Edencom buff. I did move one system over, and I forgot about that. I was trying to be all in one place so that I could destroy the rats around the mining area with my cruiser. That makes sense. I’ll just go back to where I was. This was driving me crazy. I think we figured it out. Thanks guys.


Probably EDENCOM.

165.5 multiplied by 0.90 = 148.95, rounded up this is 149
