    Hey All,

    A littleish rant

    I just mined an area 2k x 1k meters, and dropped 700 bombs ish

    And found 18 different bloody ores

    Talk about over kill

    And if i have to extract one more big claim of lyst with the tt finder (as they are still bugged) i think i will scream!

    To arkadia teams, are ores distributed as intended? Or is this MA's doing/implementation?

    Rgds

    Ace

    EDIT: imagine if i did enmatter as well - rofl

    EDIT2: i am trying out another area 1k x 1k meters, i think if this is another case of silly amounts of ores in one place, i will go back to calypso untill at least the extractors are fixed. Using a maxed vrx3k, and finding lyst everywhere is a bit shit

    Hi Ace

    I think it is MA who is in charge of all types of loot, where and how it is looted...

    I'm sure David och Cyrus will give you a answer shortly about it.. :D

    free advice,dont get upset

    Hey, Ace are you complaining because you found something or because you found a lot of tiny hits and no big ones? lol. Dropping a lot of bombs is great if that's how you mine, but there's a good chance you'll do the same thing somewhere else and find next to nothing, so maybe...just maybe...you hit a spot right off that was rich in ores, I personally have done 8 mining runs, but I drop about 600 on a run, and I have found maybe a dozen types of ore so far and no big ones..(ok, a lev 12 lyst or two)..so move around a bit try different areas, I'll bet you wont be so lucky everywhere.:shrug:

    Nothing to do with tt returns or size of claims, i guess you don't get it, which is cool

    He mean that it would be better if the mining areas was a bit more specialist so you could only find 2-3 types of ores in each area.

    I could cope with under 10 ores, but 18 was too much

    One thing that is good about these Arkadian Ores/Enmatters is that what ever You find, it's gonna take just one square/slot from Your inventory and when refined, it takes only 3 (for ores). So even if You get them all different types, You don't have to scroll Your carried inventory or Storage for Arkadia Ores/Enmatters. "Old World" Ores/Enmatters take way too much space compared to these... (e.g. raw Solis Beans)

    Other than that, being a noob-miner, I'm happy with every probe that hits at least something, no matter what :)

    I agree on this. Too many different types at same places.

    Totally agree. On Calpyso if you want Ore A and you didn't want Ore B you knew where to go. Arkadia seems to have lyst everywhere EVERYWHERE! I dont know if this is Arkadia's Fault or the messed up mining bugs. I hope this gets fixed soon. Extracting Lysts takes so long that MA/Whatever planet is losing money b/c i'm not spending it while extracting.

    As some have said already, all new areas/planets are filled with lyst at the beginning... so have to wait and see, where Arkadian ores/enmatters settle after first few months

    I must not know how to mine!? I have always found multiple different kinds of ores/enmatts even on Calypso! Even on a small 100 ped run I come back with atleast 10 different kinds. No matter where I go to mine I always get some lyst. Is that just me? :)

    Same here. But then again, I'm just a noob miner with no chance of mining with higher lever finders, so maybe You don't find that many ores/enmatters when one has more skills and finders reach deeper...

    I think we will be seeing what we saw on RT when it first started. 95% of what was there the first weeks was Lyst. As more and more players mined, more crafters used bp's with other ores and the need for them rose the lyst was slowly shifted over to what demand in crafting dictated. I am possitive we will see that same thing here only it wont take weeks or months since so many bps are available now and not being introduced 6 months after opening day.

    Wait till crafters have a few more days to work and then go back and see what has changed.

    LOL possible but I think even if your skill was the best ingame, you will still find lyst!! :eek:

    Personally I think that some ores and enmatts are going to be found on every planet that comes out. They are the fillers in mining and are going to be a part of every planets bp's. I think it's an MA thing to keep some contiguity between every planet when it starts out. Maybe when the planet has been around for some time we will see it change. :huh:

    There are many areas, although i am talking amethera now, i havent mined on eudoria for years. I can pick and choose between a few ores in many many areas.

    Well, I haven't got skills for that yet, but I do know areas on Eudoria where I usually find what expect there to be found, but not that experienced with Amethera.

    Besides, I'm now learning where to find what on Arkadia, just about to finish my trip around the continent to get some idea of where's what etc.

    Next time around I fill in some blanks on my map that I haven't mined yet and visit other areas where I did found something with better markup.

    Noobs have nothing to loose, but all to gain :)

    +1, There is some spots where you can find around 3/4 ores and 3/4 enmats, it's quite the same in Calypso... Keep mining if more players come, mine and craft, we'll see less lyst and more other ressources i guess.

    I'm guessing that areas around academies are the most likely to have those huge mixes of resources.

    I managed to profit more with Arkadias wide variety of ores and enmatters in all areas especially because the lyst fills in for lost peds on other resources that weren't spawning at the time. Because of the lyst I rarely lost on mining at Arkadia...I am back on calypso now, and ya I love the higher MU resources all in one area with less variety but, I lose bigger on mining when I don't hit on them because there is no filler like lyst any longer.
