Resource history?

Hello I am about to use one of my free resource vet reward deeds and was wondering where I can find a history of resources that have spawned on my server so I know better what to choose when using the deed. I am new to this site and any help is greatly appreciated.

Before you pop it, are you aware that you can use it as a galaxy-wide sampling device?

Many new Traders realize that when it is too late, that is why I ask.

I am in a hurry now so don't have the time to say more but others can chime in. Using it as a sampling device is the best way to help out updating SWGCraft, is it not? And together with SWGAide (my signature) you may become a master submitter at your galaxy :)

Look under "find resources" for your server and then enter the type you're looking for. The lists that pop up can be sorted by clicking on the column heading for any stat.

Zimoon is right about the tool being more valuable as a resource (with his nifty little program of course), just be careful, that last extra click can be a bummer. A little diligence on the bazaar and the forums will usually lead you to a suitable substitute for the "server best" resource.

Welcome and good luck.

Thanks Zbignew :)

I guess the foot note in this post explains how the 30k device is best used, including the appropriate warnings.

Yes, in the end of the day 30k is a spit in the ocean and you'll regret it.

Zeiro_Kewl, welcome here, warmly welcome :D

Well my advice is not to use it for 30k resources.

But if you want to use it, check** first for what purpose you want it.

Examples:

What profession are you gonna to use it?
[for munition and special weapon schematics can work like that - using a small amount of the current resource only for 1 special crafting, That way will last longer and will worth to use it in long run. Special schematics [like Whistler from ISD etc..] if good crafted cost millions in bazaar]

Is enough this amount for future craftings?
[if you gonna use it for big amount of craftings like stations, droids etc... is not worth to spent it, always out there something similar to use and gain capped products]

Do you want it to sell it as rare resource?
[that can be work... but you need also to make research in bazaar and schematics for prices and the usage of that resource. Usually rare old resources sells for 100 cr or 200 cr per unit in small amounts of 100, 200, 300.... 1k. Especially the force* resources (LS crafting resources)].

Good luck :D

To directly answer the original question, "where I can find a history of resources that have spawned on my server", the answer is: In the 30k crate itself. All historical data is in it.

Yes, I know, this is not the answer you wanted, but the most correct. Even if we wanted to we cannot be sure that SWGCraft is 100% accurate, that is since all data is entered by humans.

And we generally advise against popping the crate hastily. Many new crafters do, only to regret it once they realize its full power or the best ways to use it. Consider it our kind desire to stop newbies to do a mistake.
