I’m currently extracting a boat load of P2’s across a large number of planets to churn into p4’s. With a setup of 6 Basic Factories (with CCU 5) I need to be extracting 18000 units minimum, of each raw material, per hour to fully fuel the 6 factories making the initial P1. However, its obviously not always possible to get out the required 18000 units even with shifting the heads about every 24 hours…
My question is this, if I cannot get the required units of raw material when I log in to reset the process going, is it better to;
- reduce the time for that resource (which could mean one is pulling for 24 hours, whilst the other is pulling for say 10 hours) and ship the leftovers to market,
- keep both extractors running at 24 hours but have one just pulling in less than required
- another option?
Any feedback to get things running optimal would be greatly appreciated!
