OK... so can you use the Crate of Free Resources to get Space resources? :D

I really don't know but IMHO that would be overkill. Not only cost-wise but also the 30k crate is way more useful as a "galactic survey device" when sitting at your porch and looking up the stats of new resources before you submit them to here :)

Either way, economically the 30k crate must be bought at about 15 mill or lower to even be cheaper than what you usually by space resources for. Or, the Crystal Asteroid is sold at a lot more than the common price.

Yes, it will be, for a very short time starting today. Until enough space minders have hoarded every single asteroid out there and put it up for sale ... and the market is perhaps saturated. Novelty is novelty and soon the dust settles. Unless you plan to attach the kit to a vehicle right away you can equally well wait until you make a bargain.

Any DE would either ask to be paid in space resources or charge well enough to be able to buy more :)

Yes, but I'm planning to supply many people :)

I just tried, and couldn't find it :(

Have you ever tried it? It may be I'm just missing it :P

Hey Auq, nice to meet you there too :-)

I've already answered you in game however I'll answer you again 'cause it can be helpful to others. You can't use the Crate of Free Resources to redeem space resources.

Are you sure the 30k resource kit cannot be used to claim asteroids? I know that years ago they could. That may have changed though. I totally agree it would be a waste to use it to claim asteroid resources.

Is something changing about how space resources are mined?

Yup, I've got some crates on storage and I use one every day for surveying purpose and none of them permit me to list/claim space resources.

Mh, about how the mining works... I'm sorry but I'm not your man! I don't know a thing about that!
