I have 6 characters with 6 planets each. so in total I have 36 planets.

I am trying to work out a balance between cycle times and having to move extractor heads and wanted to get some opinions.

I’ve tried 2 day cycles, 3 day cycles and 4 day cycles, but even at 4 days the resources seem to dwindle fairly quickly and I have to move heads at least once a week, I do know that I tend to put down as many heads as a can nearest the densest resources and often end up with a load of overspill, Do you think it is instead worth aiming for a per hour resource extraction that matches the number of BIFs I have (which is 6 therefore 36k per hour) although on 4 day cycles I do tend to reset them after 3 days.

I thought about possibly changing to a 5 day cycle and resetting after 4 days, but then the cycle time is 2 hours rather than 1.

Any thoughts from PI moguls?
