New Metal Storage
GE metalstorage-1

Details:Edit

  • Once you've upgraded your Metal Mine, you'll soon run out of storage capacity as your metal reserves begin to grow beyond their limitations at the Metal Mine.
  • To alleviate this, build a Metal Storage unit in your colony and keep the metal production coming.
  • Only metal is needed to build a Metal Storage

  • Tips: 
  • When you build the Metal Storage unit it will take up your building space on your planet that you do have. So remember this when you are upgrading.

Build / Upgrade TimeEdit

  • Rows: Goal Upgrade Level
  • Columns: Robotics Facility Level
  • Result: Upgrade Time
  • Note: Times recorded using a Commander Lv1. which confers a construction time -10%

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 = 180
  • B = Constant = 0.693147181
