I just wasted 11 days of training on my Alt – picking up Archaeology IV and V instead of Astrogeology IV and V that I thought I was training. I only realised when the Exhumers skill refused to inject. I had a moment of confusion before the penny dropped, and an “Oh fuck” escaped my lips. I can’t even take solace in the fact he can now use T2 Analyzers – given I don’t use him as a prober.
I moved my PI installations along – it is now spread across 2 systems and 4 planets, and is producing Consumer Electronics and Mechanical Parts. Robotics will be added shortly, possibly after down time today. The process will require me to visit one of my planets first, and then move its dual outputs to two other planets. It is certainly taking a little effort to work out what I need to do to chain the production lines efficiently, but it should be relatively low maintenance once the initial effort comes to pass.
I’ve noticed the resources on the planets I currently do PI on have generally increased over time. While the initial strong deposits have diminished, other worthwhile pockets tend to develop to replace them. The upkeep is also not as taxing as I had initially feared. I basically just let them cycle twice a week. I have also in some regards stopped investigating what will make me the highest profit, and just been focusing on the more expensive components of POS fuel for personal use.
