    prices go up/down due to various factors. Mainly has been around the same price the last few years, but way back when before multiple planets exist and everyone 'walked both ways uphill to hunt and mine' unlike this new generation with their fancy cars several years back 5 ped per 1k was usual. Some old foggies still pay that from time to time.

    My advice: STOP RELYING ON BUYERS. Go find yourself some blueprints that use the stuff or make the ME yourself and then YOU become the buyer or can just use it to supply your own needs because at today's lowly prices, it's more pricey to pay electric bill irl to collect the stuff than it is collect it in game, etc.

    I'd suggest you start with obtaining Lesser Elysia Blueprint since that one only uses one other ingredient besides sweat. Eventually add to your bp collection with others bps so you can try your hand at slowly becoming a crafter instead of someone relying on sweat buyers as a form of income. Since Lyst is fairly plentiful in mining, try mining it yourself so go get Lesser Elysia bp, go mine, go sweat, craft the stuff, and then trying selling that. All of the experiences you gain in trying to do all of those steps has to be more fun that just standing around sweating all day.

    no problem. Also, wasn't going to mention this since this is the Ark forum, but will anyways... partly because I hope someday Ark learns from RT and implements something similar...

    you can make more collecting oil in the Thing's oil rig than you ever will sweating.... and you can live more eco there than on most other planets on the n00b level if you just hunt rocktropians and nothing else.... assuming you get the blueprint that uses just the rocktropian records that those things give out as loot typically. Rocktropians and trolls around the noobs noob noobs bar, and up at the daily mission/troll bar fight mission billie bar all have lower hp than 10. On other planets lowest hp mobs have 10 hp. Since there is a 'kill bonus' that makes that area awesome for skilling vs other planets, at least on the lowest levels of hunting -> crafting.

    The thing rig pays out about 60 pecs in oil every hour. Most hours there is one or two avatars there, but at some hours of the day, there is no one there... so it's easy pickings if you have oddball sleep patterns like I do sometimes. I think most you can pick up there if it's empty of other avatars is 20 or so at a time but it respawns over time, so if you have a few hours and don't get bored easily (which I'm assuming you don't if you are sweating a lot) it might be worth giving a try some time.

    The only reason I'm not currently still on RT is since the underground deeds aren't too popular on the auction there yet... :)
