Re: New Nova Mark V Engine

I wouldn't say you're bad at it, especially if that's your first attempt. There are all kinds of ways to boost your skills to make better parts... drink Bestine Port, wear a specialized crafting suit, be in a city that has the research center specialty, get entertainer and medic buffs, and use cappe...

Re: One last shot at this resource thing

I'm getting the feeling that you are very new to crafting. I'm relatively new still, and I think I may be able to point you in the right direction without getting real technical. You mentioned the numbers in the lower right when you start to put resources in. Those are the numbers you're trying to m...

Re: Bioware's New MMO

I've only read rumors and ppl's hopes that Bioware is doing a KOTOR swg theme mmo. But Bioware has not even said anything at this point. Yeah, it's almost scary how huge the hype has gotten with no real facts to back it up. Painful, really, because I played both KOTORs to death on PC and the X Box,...

Re: improving manual sampling

The problem isn't that a macro can't run, it's that more has to be done in the macro to restart you sampling. This is not the case if you only have 6 boxes of expertise, but if you check the seventh you have to include the order to sample otherwise you "have to rest" before you can sample again. It'...

Re: improving manual sampling

Yes it would! It's inconvenient and leads to more macros running to correct it, but not fatal to the game.

Re: Adding in resources and stats

If you don't want to wait the 6-month buy one, these are so AWASOME!! Once you go 30k crate you don't go back :P Those things are sold for 20-40 mil credits on my server. I either wait for 9 months or I buy one, as some of us didn't understand the benefit they gave. I remember thinking to myself "B...

Re: The story of the Stubborn Shipwright!

Aegean - If you're looking to start a new conglomerate, hook a fellow Starsider up :). I'm a master in name only, as I've only been around a few months. Send Ibaum a mail or tell sometime in game if you see me on.

Re: Looking for resource info

A professional miner has the potential to make far more money than the crafters they are supplying. About 40% of my revenue comes from selling off my 'second-tier' resources. And up to 20% of my revenue is spent on Asteroids every month. I just put a bunch of my second tier resources up for sale (s...

Re: improving manual sampling

I still disagree on the full expertise being not worth it. Even though you do stand with all 7 points allocated, you also sample 18-20% more than someone with only 6 points allocated. That's a tremendous difference to me. Could it be higher if you didn't stand? Yes. But even if it's only 18% more, ...

improving manual sampling

I don't believe there are any buffs to improve manual sampling, meaning nothing from medics or entertainers, no foods, etc. That means the only way to increase the amount of resources sampled by hand must come from improved action pools and increasing recovery rate. As it is now there comes a point ...

Any idea when Jedi updates? Have they announced the order they're updating in?
