Refined ores heavier than unrefined?

    As the title says. I didn't check all the Arkadia-specific resources - keep forgetting to check enmats - but at least the half a dozen new ores I checked seem to be heavier after refining.

    Not all that high priority, really. Heck, I don't even know if it's a bug; it could be intentional. Just feels slightly counter-intuitive, so I thought I'd ask.

    Well, I just refined 0.4 kg of Edres Resin (14 jugs) into 0.4 kg of Edres Varnish (7 jugs). Shouldn't it go down? Could also be intentional, or so small it's hard to notice at this amount.

    I remember refining a bunch of Ospra stones and the weight actually went up. I dont have specifics so I will wait until I get some more to confirm it.

    I have found that any resource that is Ark Origin does not go down in weight after it has been refined. If you find Cal Resourses when they refine you do go down in weight.

    Does not matter the size as I have had globals on Both Ark and Cal Resourses on Ark and only when i refined Cal Res did i lose weight.

    Hoping this is a bug that will get fixed soon. or if on purpose then it is confirmed as ment to be

    What about other refinables, like hides? Obviously the reason to refine while out in the middle of nowhere hunting/mining is to reduce your weight so you can walk a bit further, so I too would think this is a bug. Not noticed, but will have a look tonight when refining hides and ores.

    Just to update, I tested a large variety of ores and enmatters, as well as hides last night, and yes, all of the Arkadian specific ores/enmatters and animal hides do not have a reduced wieght after being refined. The generic (formerly Calypso) materials do reduce. They did not become heavier refined as the title of this thread says, they all simply remained the exact same wieght.

    I realized this thread was dated back a while so I looked back at other bug reports and update lists, and found this was a known issue in the May 31 update: "Some Refined Resources are heavier than expected."
    Then in the update from June 8th it was listed as a fixed issue: "
    Ingots now report their correct weight."

    So, as it is currently, the wieght does not change at all on a large number (I can't say all of course) of ores/enmatters/hides when refined, I assume that is still a bug and not intended to be that way.

    One thing i have noticed though when you refine Ark Ores and Hides is that it flashes your weight lower before going back to the original weight. This tells me that it may just be a bug and that it will get fixed soon enough

    Quick update, the weight for Arkadian ores, enmatters and hides will reduce once refined following our next update in early August.

    Thanks to everyone for the feedback, with your help we are making a better Arkadia.
