Mining rates

Post by Mr. Tact » Thu Mar 07, 2019 9:11 pm

I suspect my memory is failing me, so I have a quick question -- I looked about and it seems it takes 90 electric miners to keep a blue belt filled will with ore. Is that a significant change from 0.16?

Right. I got the 90 number from that page. What it doesn't tell me is how much it did or didn't change from 0.16.

Well, you should scroll to the bottom, and compare it to the 0.16 version

Unfortunately the old ones seem to be broken, but the PDF version works fine.

I believe it says 77 miners per blue belt.

Ah, I did miss the link to the 0.16 cheat sheet -- thanks. 77 to 90... so 16.8% more miners needed. Less of a difference than my feeble mind was seeing... :mrgreen:

Also worth remembering that mining productivity research also plays a role. If you 0.16 base had a higher productivity bonus than your 0.17 base, then that would make the difference seem larger.
