New Crystal Mine
GE crystal

Details: Edit

  • Crystal is collected and then processed at the Crystal Mine in your colony.
  • Gathered from the Planet's surface, crystal is required to construct powerful fleets, and to research advanced technology upgrades.
  • Upgrading your Crystal Mine will allow you to produce a greater amount of crystal, fueling your expansion.
  • If your storage capacity is overwhelmed, crystal production will temporarily cease.
  • "Not all information is present in the table below."
  • Like the Gas Mine and Metal Mine; the Crystal Mine does not require gas to upgrade.
  • With Galactonite, Official Rank and other variables the output per hour can not be accurately determined.

FormulasEdit

Time to BuildEdit

The time to build formula is:
$ t=(1-d)\cdot \frac { A }{ (r+1) } \cdot { e }^{ B\cdot l } $
with the following variables:
  • t = time [seconds]
  • d = Bonus Discount [%]
  • r = Robotics Facility Level
  • l = Upgrade Level
And the following constants
As derived from the following Equations:
Solve for B
$ B\quad =\quad \frac { \ln { \left( \frac { { t }_{ 2 }({ r }_{ 2 }+1)(1-{ d }_{ 1 }) }{ { t }_{ 1 }(1-{ d }_{ 2 })({ r }_{ 1 }+1) } \right) } }{ \left( { l }_{ 2 }-{ l }_{ 1 } \right) } $
And Solve for Constant A
$ A=\frac { t(r+1) }{ { e }^{ Bl }(1-d) } $



(Best Value as of Apr 25, 2014)
  • A = Constant = 14.3364115392396
  • B = Constant = 0.477180666567455
