@KevinvanderVelden smeltery not doing anything again
 
Did you stuff it with blood again?
 
 
2 hours later…
10:22 AM
I don't know who made half a compacting setup behind the wall-of-dust-pieces but I finished it
 
10:41 AM
@KevinvanderVelden I did, was too lazy to hook another chest up to it because the chest recipe got removed from my EMC thing
If you see something that's half done it's probably my doing
 
Heh
I also added some logistic pipes so now it'll compress all the dusts
Course, it has a ginormous backlog so it'll take a bit
(Ginormous as in, about a dozen barrels worth of pieces
 
 
1 hour later…
11:59 AM
@Jochem Who do you plan to support, by the way? :D
 
@Unionhawk in Elite?
 
Ya
I'm pretty sure The entire Bridge is going for Arissa Laingvy-Duval, since she's the only imperial who isn't implicated with Aisling
And who isn't Senator Torval
 
Probably Arissa Lavigny-Duval as well, primarily for the bounty hunting bonus.
 
Oh shit bounty hunting bonus?
SOLD
I didn't look at the bonuses
I should look at those and see.
Just to be sure
@KevinvanderVelden Heh. This is ridiculous that it can be done.
 
12:05 PM
(it could be done in ME4 too, still ridiculous)
 
there's also an insurance fee reduction, a bounty/fine reduction, and trading bonuses and influence bonuses... I might go for an influence one, if the grind for faction ranks has been made more tolerable and the defection penalties aren't too harsh
though the bounty hunting one is just too good to give up
 
Oh shit reddit is not blocked at work
This is a dangerous discovery.
I was also thinking about Hudson as an interesting character to support, and, same bonuses
No, wait, 50% bounty
 
I think that's because Hudson is at Rank 1 and Lavigny-Duval is at Rank 3
their bonuses get better if they're more supported. Judging by the subreddit's general tone, I'm guessing the Empire is going to get a lot of love once the patch drops
 
Ah...
It looks like the base bonus is 20%
And there's a boost of like, 10% per 1-3 rank
So Hudson ended up with 30% extra
 
it's also dependent on where you want to do your hunting, cause afaik it's just Empire or just Federation bounties that get increased
 
12:09 PM
Hudson is an interesting character to me because, like, what is his position, exactly?
 
@Unionhawk autonomous activator set to shift right click on a chest. Done
 
I really need to get caught up on lore before the patch drops X_X
 
Set everything that doesn't fit in the storage to be send to a loot bag recycler
 
I guess the Shadow President is like, the leader of the opposing political party, but why is that a thing?
@KevinvanderVelden Wait what? (I've done it with some crystal farming mod)
@Jochem Yuuuuuuuup
 
@Unionhawk It's a thing
 
12:10 PM
I'm behind
By quite a bit
 
same. I've been getting bits and pieces from the community goals, but other than that, not so much. Apparently the President is missing now
 
I know Arissa was out fighting bad guys though, so that's all I really need to know. WAIT WAT
No wonder President Who's-her-face isn't a power
And apparently Senator Patreus is building his army
Still
 
there's a galnet post about it. there was a visit planned to the alliance in 78 Ursa Majoris (hence the CG there), and now she's missing
 
@KevinvanderVelden Who is responsible for this thing
 
The author of the mod "Loot Bags"
 
12:16 PM
Oh I thought you meant HQM bags
That makes more sense
 
Aah no, we're not using HQM
This is from the mob farm
 
That's part of what confused me "why the fuck do you have quests? Who put that together?"
@KevinvanderVelden Wait, as in, you have mob farm stuff, but right clicking with loot bags on a chest dumps the contents into the chest?
Not as in right clicking on a chest magically makes loot bags?
 
The mobs randomly drop loot bags
 
By magic?
That makes significantly more sense
 
@Unionhawk this is the thing that is happening
 
12:20 PM
(though I literally farmed them in ME4)
(as in, I was growing reward bag crystals)
 
1:02 PM
Last ~30 minutes of free playtime have started
After that I can hopefully still play in the weekends and evenings sometimes
@KevinvanderVelden
 
Yeah I have one of these to
Fun times
(One of those = screenshot)
 
 
1 hour later…
2:18 PM
@Ieuan if you set the EMC for something to create a lot of 'm. Please make sure it's at least as much as the ingredients? =p
 
2:41 PM
You set something with an actual value of 115.040 to have an EMC of 8100 =p
And a tesseract is not worth 1024, try 32.128 =p
 
 
1 hour later…
3:48 PM
YOU FOOL
 
4:13 PM
@KevinvanderVelden I do that when it's actually worth something
I was just going to make a couple tesseracts and didnt feel like manually making them, we aren't going to be using tesseracts for long
 
You mean like 64k storage disks?
Also: the diamond processor thingies
 
@KevinvanderVelden I'm pretty sure I make the disks about the right amount
Either 4x or 3x or 2x the previous tier
 
Nope, not at all
 
Damn
Wait
Not even with the disks without the casing?
 
Both the 64k and 16k parts were less than the actual cost of the diamond processor
 
4:16 PM
Because in the end I made the 64 with the casing the same amount as without
Oh
Well then that isn't really fair is it
 
No not at all
The 115.040 vs 8100 is the 64k part
 
4:47 PM
Well I mean, I would've had enough EMC for the disks regardless
But if all resources in the 1k disk are set doesnt it auto calc all the other ones?
@KevinvanderVelden did you move the AE or did you destroy it?
Because I made the controllers and at least one of the disks legit
 
Destroyed it =p
I also wanted it somewhere else xp
 
@KevinvanderVelden Actually, exactly; since you could theoretically trade in a thing and get back more ingredients
Ad infinatum EE2 is so potentially exploitable it's hilarious
 
Well, wanted, changed my mind about it
Also! Builders wand
 
@KevinvanderVelden A winner is you
Seriously though, that's all you need to win a skyblock
Flight and a builder's wand
 
@Ieuan made us jetpacks already so
 
5:00 PM
GAME SET AND MATCH
 
@KevinvanderVelden did you fix all the AE stuff EMC values I set?
 
Alright then if you don't mind I'm going to set up those chests again
