Post Re: No longer laughable...(Texas Toast's Shiplog)
I didn't do a whole lot during the Bane event. I was really busy outside the game, making it less of a priority, and then we had a tropical storm come through and knock out all of the power in my area for the last few days of the event. I did manage to get and upgrade a pair of carapace at least. I also got a pair of terrorcharged emitters, 43 psybeacons, 3 psyshade arsenals. I'll try to do a little hunting before the bane actually get turned off to use my last couple of psyshade inducers.

I was also able to get both the Living Nightmare and Fire and Brimstone medals. Not going to bother with the Enveloping Villainy medal, and I didn't spend much time working towards Bag of Tricks. I got 7 out of 12 professions just by setting traps as I found them, but since I didn't do much NPCing I didn't really find many traps (and most phantoms were turned into psyshades when possible.)

I'm way behind turning in artifacts and rank points; I've got triple digits on hand of all of the androids and prisoners etc. But, with where I'm at turning things in now:
Image

So, only 26 ranks. Solynia is now up to rank 37. All rank points have been going into TACOs, which went up around 3k.

Image

I've got 9 or 10 open planet slots, depending on if the drannik colonization bug thing actually got fixed. Haven't gotten near my limit yet to test that out. I'll be colonizing again once the Harvest starts, as I have mostly been waiting to colonize more in case of new medals or if there are some medals I don't have yet. Too lazy to look, but I think there is one. I'm now at 2610 medal points, and have less than 1000 raids to go to get the last raiding medal. My only PvP medals remaining are that and Exotica.

Image

I have moved up 3 more spots on the hacks leaderboard. That's been helped along a bit by having the extra time manipulator actions finally.

Minerals 132199 units / hour (4.3 hours)
Artifacts 153736 points / hour (4.9 hours)
Research 161627 research / hour (3.8 hours)

Again, no real change in production as I haven't added a ton of new planets. Will be nice once Solynia is fully ranked and I can go back to invading everything again.

I did not do nearly as much NPCing as I'd hoped to do during the Harvest event, so not many terrafounders collected. Oh well, I got to colonize a bunch of planets, so Solynia is now rank 47. I contributed over a million energy towards our base upgrade, which was a bit shy of a quarter of all energy donations this past month. I also got the Terran Nature, Habitable Harvest, and Nature's Protection medals, leaving me at 2640 of 3520 medal points right now.

Here are my current stats:
Image

Gained 41 ranks, around 7500 TACOs, and even more rank points needing to be turned in. I have also hit over 6 digits by default with no temporary buffs when attacking NPCs, which is nice.

Image

I'm at 10 or 11 open planet slots, so basically treaded water with colonizing while ranking throughout the month. Less than 800 raids to go for the last raiding medal, and now moved 4 more slots up the hacks leaderboard.
Image

Per the recent post here in the forums asking for better badge messages, I've been picking a lame joke of the day to leave on folks comms if I disable them. That's been fun.

Not a huge change in production, though I'm not running all my buffs right now. I am usually in the 160s for artifacts per hour.

Minerals 130572 units / hour (4.4 hours)
Artifacts 156120 points / hour (4.9 hours)
Research 162147 research / hour (3.8 hours)

Post-Scruuge update!

Once again, was very busy and actually did a lot less NPCing than I had planned on. Oh well. I did get my Hullbuster Sale and Presents and Future medals, bringing me to 2660 of 3540. I've got 39 resupply depots in my cargo, and placed somewhere around 6-8 of them on planets already, I think. Wound up with 3 gift of the void, 2 gift of the stars, and 1 gift of the ancients; as I said, not much NPCing. Over 80 gift to the naughty left, which is about how many I had going into the event, so despite handing a lot out the first week and a half, I merely replaced what I used.

Current stats:
Image

Only 26 ranks, which is less than 1 per day. Definitely a slowdown for me. Will be concentrating on base donations for the next month I guess, since I don't plan to do a ton of NPCing until Q-Pedd unless I get a legion mission that calls for it. I did catch up on my rank points, briefly, but as you can tell I'm way behind again (though I did turn in over 500 of them over the last day or two...of course, haven't turned in rescued prisoners in that time either though...) Over 5000 more TACOs for the month, with a few thousand more to be coming in the very near future once I can get around to doing a lot of clicking. Maybe I'll have to watch some videos for work and can sit there giving myself carpal tunnel...

Image

I'm now up to 14 or 15 empty planet slots, depending on the drannik colony fix. I really need to get off my butt and colonize a few more planets. 667 raids to go to get the last raiding medal, so I should make progress on that this month. I took the last week and a half off of PvP as I was just too busy, which meant folks had to deal with a Holiday Hiatus of my Bad Joke Badge Comms, which seem to be oddly polarizing. Most folks that respond to them seem to appreciate them, but a few people get mad at me for them. Which seems silly. I'm now comm blocked on a lot of people's comms, and one player specifically that doesn't like being hacked managed to goad me into zeroing him by using a bunch of TiBs on me so he's actually blocked me. I am looking forward to that wearing off, because it's put him on my permanent special attention list rather than just being another random person on my battle tab.

Speaking of, my strategy of PvPing until my time manipulators stop working once per day 4-5 times per week works out pretty well. I did get as high as 12th on the hacks leaderboard, but a week and a half off has actually dropped me a spot compared to last month:
Image

i think I can get close to if not in the top 10 by the end of January though for my next update. We'll see. Either way, I'll be collecting a lot of badges which is the important thing. (I actually ran out of reds this weekend from locking bases.)

Minerals 142788 units / hour (4.1 hours)
Artifacts 170035 points / hour (5.2 hours)
Research 170468 research / hour (3.6 hours)

Production is slowly creeping up and I'll shortly be passing my research production with artifact production (finally) so that will be nice. With hyperturbines on over 50 of my planets, I've slowed down placing those and am concentrating a bit on adding storage capacity so that I don't lose quite as much production overnight. Only aiming at hyperturbines for new planets that already have over 1k artifact production going forward. If I could invade to fill my planet slots I'd be able to get up to 200k/hour I think without too much trouble...but finding colonizable planets for Solynia is proving to be a drag. Only rank 51 so far, so 49 to go.

Q-Pedd is about to start, so going a day early this month.

This month I did wind up doing a little more NPCing than I have been during the seasonals, at least subjectively (I haven't actually compared the NPC kill totals.) Hoping to spend more time NPCing and collecting terraforming devices during Q-Pedd since I'm running low on them now. I am up to 2675 medal points, and finally got the Firewall medal!

Image

35 ranks this month, and about 10k TACOs, so some good progress on that front. I think I'm at the point that I'm still 6 digit NPC attack debuffed from a DCN or hypergrid but without any temporary buffs. Was really close a couple days ago and worked through my rank points since then. I've been making good progress with Solynia, who is now at rank 81. A legionmate went traveling and has been sharing the planets of mine she has on scan to try and free up planet slots for me.

Image

I have actually filled my planet slots a few times, though currently I've got a few available. I also passed Peticks (briefly) on the hacks leaderboard, but he took advantage of my not doing much on weekends to rebuild a lead.

Image

Still not top 10, but it's a moving target and will get there eventually, I expect.

Minerals 148872 units / hour (4.1 hours)
Artifacts 188622 points / hour (5.3 hours)
Research 183328 research / hour (3.4 hours)

Production is creeping up. Small gains in mining and research, large gains in artifacts. I've been converting some of my plasmas to artifact planets and making them a bit more useful, and a renewed interest in polychoron vaults has been helping to maintain my capacity so I lose less over night.

Coming off of a week long trip across the country to a mastermind and conference, so pretty exhausted, so I'm going to just drop some numbers and not put a lot of thought behind this month's update.

Image

Image

Main relevant note not seen in the screenshots is that I have 6 open planet slots and need 11 ranks for Solynia. That will happen this month some time, hopefully earlier rather than later. Shouldn't be hard once Lepus starts.

Image

I did pass Peticks a few times, but taking a week off from hacks means he passed me again. He has moved over to my legion so I can't hack him anymore, unfortunately. :)

Top 10 is always a moving target, but I think it's possible to hit that by my next update or two if I can find the time to be diligent.

Minerals 148027 units / hour (4.2 hours)
Artifacts 188749 points / hour (5.4 hours)
Research 178332 research / hour (3.7 hours)

Production actually creeped down a little. I did lose a couple planets this month, but mostly I don't have all my buffs running right now for the last week so that's probably what hit the minerals/artifacts the most, once I buff up they'll be a bit higher. My capacity has improved, if not a huge amount in production. For research, I've been converting those to artifact planets, so I expect that that'll mostly maintain from what I get in scientists. Of which I have a few hundred to use...

Finished ranking Solynia. Made top 10 in hacks (but not quite above the fold, one more spot to go there.) Nothing else to really report on; had a 3 day migraine morph into the flu this week so haven't been active. Switched away from being talth excavator, so production took a hit, but was able to put aerlen patronage on my rift. Once I get a gateway link then I'll go back to talth excavator but who knows how long that will take. Might give up and swtich back before then.

Post Re: No longer laughable...(Texas Toast's Shiplog)
Last month I did a little digging around my planets and figured out what I actually had, forgot to add this to yesterday's update. (I blame the flu.)

Best resource on the planets:
Code:
Artifact Planets:   289   60.08%
Mining Planets:   120   24.95%
Research Planets:   72   14.97%
Storage Planets:   0   0.00%


Actual production type based on what the planet is actively producing:
Code:
Artifact Planets:   315   65.49%
Mining Planets:   124   25.78%
Research Planets:   36   7.48%
Storage Planets:   6   1.25%


I'm in the process of converting my biggest research planets (especially ones w/effects) into artifact planets, so that's been helpful.

i think this is pretty interesting info. here are my stats for comparison:

Code:
Artifact Planets:  422   82.6%  - minimum 275 arti per hour
Mining Planets:  49  9.6% - minimum 924 mining per hour (being boosted .. next lowest is 975 mining per hour)
Research Planets:  0   00%
Storage Planets:  35  6.8% - C plasmas collect a bit of research; VM metallics a bit of mining
Miscellaneous Planets:  5  1.0% - recently invaded (to be abandoned) / futbawls

time to cap production:
artifact: 5.87 hours
mining: 7.58 hours
research: 3.92 hours

Above the fold!

Image

Only by 6 hacks, will likely lose it over the weekend, but should regain it without much trouble before my next actual update.

But, hey, finally above the fold. :)

Post Re: No longer laughable...(Texas Toast's Shiplog)
Biggest news was getting above the fold a week and a half ago, and am now comfortably in position #8 on the hacks leaderboard. Still aerlen fixer; no ardyne sabotage yet. Will probably give up waiting soon and just get it next year at some point if I'm still playing.

Image

Crossed 6 digits on the TACOs. Maxed my cobalt drive, so energy is going up a wee bit on a daily basis. Still going all rank points to tacos at this point. Not sure if/when I'll put any back into engineers, but no real plans right now to. Note that I added the droid maintenance this morning, so go off the current hull rather than max hull in the screenshot.

Image

I've been keeping my planet slots full; looking forward to going back to excavator as a profession.

Minerals 149075 units / hour (4.7 hours)
Artifacts 184959 points / hour (6.0 hours)
Research 189407 research / hour (3.8 hours)

Image

Unbuffed vs NPCs: Attack: 149704 / Defense: 211676 and in PvP: Attack: 138502 / Defense: 164150
