Hi all

Ive just come back after being away for about 5 months, i was a DE but have decided to move to Architect.

Now what sort of quantities of resources are needed for this profession, i can see from the schems that allot of them use allot of resources. Is it mainly Steel and Ore that we use?
I know the stats i need but i just trying to get a rough idea of how much stuff i going to have to harvest before i can really get myself setup.

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated and any other advice and tips is also good.

Ive read the guides and they are really useful, especially the one on Harvestors :)

Thanks

If you're definitely doing architect and not shipwright, then it's all about the low grade ore. Pull it up as fast as you can, and when you think you've got enough, pull up some more. Some steel, polymers, aluminum, reactive gas, and copper for things like generator turbines.

Yup, and make sure you know what ore to mine: Fermionic Siliclastic Ore is always there - and the concentration is much higher then usual
Usual Ore above 60% is a really really great spot. But Fermionic Siliclastic Ore is a JtL resource (also caled SW resource) and that means that you not only find it often in 90+ concentration (my own best ever conc was 98 for that) - it also stay twice as long. So if you look for grind ore - look for Fermionic Siliclastic Ore.
And the others are right - you will *always* look for grind ore.

Your mineral harvesters should never stood still. And if you have unused lots your doing something strange ;)
