Can someone tell me what the best percentage concentration

Post by Monty Burns » Wed Jan 14, 2009 6:40 am

is for a carbonate ore?

I am hunting a spawn of Zinsiam Carbonate Ore but for the life of me I can not get better than 60%.

60% is awesome for Ore (other then Fermionic Siliclastic Ore). Stop looking and put down those harvesters.

When Im looking for Ore, 60% is the threshold where I stop looking. For other resources it is 90%. I have never seen an Ore (other then the JTL Ore) 70% or higher, so ild say 70% is the cap.

for that type of questions you need Lunariel's Guide to Resource Shifts

The other guide you nede to know is Lunariel's Guide to Resource Caps

absolutely! before reading that guide - I spend hours looking for a higher concentration, must read for crafters and surveyors!

Umm I probably should have mentioned this in the first post but I did read the guide to resource shifts but could not determine whether Zinsiam Carbonate Ore was a low or medium ore.

So rather than mess around guessing what was happening I decided to ask.

I am a big fan of the theory that it takes less time to answer a question than it does to explain why the question should not have been asked.

It is not the Ore that is listed as Low or Medium but the concentrations. Lunariel lists Ore as Low in her great article.
Lunariel wrote:The resource concentrations can roughly be grouped into these categories:

- High and Plentiful: JTL resources, Chemicals and Inert Gas (Up to 99% and can easily find spots in the 90s)
- Medium: Non-JTL Minerals except Ore, Non-JTL Reactive Gas and Flora. (Up to the 90s as well, but normally have to settle for the 80s or even the high 70s)
- Low and Rare: Non-JTL Ore, Water, Wind Energy and Solar Energy (Up to the 70s, but often have to settle for the 60s or even the 50s)
