Running around picking up engineer materials, pretty cool backdrop
USNS Extreme Freedom on the prowl
I’ve been making ridiculous amounts of money mining, thought I would share a few tips that will guarantee 100+mil credits an hour. First look for the 'roids that are this shade of yellow, and this exact shape.
Here it is closer, I’ve only seen rocks this shape that have a core.
Might be others, but this is the only one I ever see in the ice rings.
Before you fire a prospector, you can verify it will have a core by locating these fissures and cracks. They are generally in the same few spots each time, and look like this. You can turn on night vision to see them from further away and then verify with the headlights.
Heres another. Slightly different yellow shade, but the shape gives it away.
Heres the correct shape, but no cracks, so you know it doesnt have a core. This one did not light up on the pulse wave scan, just proving that not every rock this shape has a core.
And the payoff. 106+ mil credits for about 55 mins of playing.
