I will increase my Research Institute to Level 25 today, every upgrade only give an extra 0.7 points an hour and the points costs per vehicle increase 25% per phase.

All right I admit it, to grow my colony and keep on top of those snapping dogs(collegues), I am forced to use more dedicated machines for the distance/quantity, but only till I get that "Golden Glowing Free Container".

Alright a genuine perplexion/query
Settler Account (Gold Medallion) - unsure of benefits below :-
#Extended Mission Functions = Change/delete Routes without starting again?
#Extended Statistics = ? (Is it use of Transport Schedule - "Best route computer" ? (pity its mono only ))
#Easy Habitat Harvesting = habitat is the Colony Dome, so whats easy ...?
.
(Isn't Window 8.1 Stopwatch/Timer app, worth it's weight in Tritium)
< - - - > Alright eine echte perplexion / query
Siedler-Konto (Goldmedaillon) - ungewiss der Leistungen unten: -
#Extended Mission Functions = Routen ändern / löschen, ohne neu zu starten?
#Extended Statistics =? (Ist es die Verwendung von Verkehrszeitplan - "Best Route Computer"? (Schade nur seine Mono))
#Easy Habitat Harvesting = Lebensraum ist die Colony Dome, so, was einfach ...?
.
(Ist nicht Window 8.1 Stoppuhr / Timer App, lohnt sich das Gewicht in Tritium)

If the demand for a resource is greater than the amount of production, the wait time increases and the outpost begins to level.

Shame on me!

ElCapitan1701, you are right! Investments don't help to level.

Is there a way to sell or otherwise get rid of old Transporters? I want to upgrade to some of the stage 2 ones but am inundated with stage 1

Click on the transport.
Click extended.
Click replace then choose what to replace it with.

If you click on the transport schedule you will not see the above option of "extended" so click on the transport in the transport list, not on the schedule (calendar).

1)What is the penalty for carrying the wrong resource type in a specialized transporter? The seem to still do it but get the little yellow cart symbol. So I’m guessing it slows them down? Maybe load time as well as speed?

2) Is there some level (or phase) where a new ( non-starter) colony starts giving race missions? I started in Gagarin but so I can learn the game better I decided to try moving to Baikonur. Completed the move yesterday but I’m still getting about half my personal delivery missions assigned back in Gagarin and ALL race missions still there. :(

1) The speed penalty is you move 1/4 the speed, I don't think there is a load time penalty.

2) You should be seeing races at any colony that has at least 10 players AND you are connected to by installing a transmitter ON the colony.
After connecting to a colony it will take around 6 hours for races to appear.

Thanks starquake glad to see you’re still around! Looks like you’ve been a big part of this community for awhile.

I moved my habitat drone ~2 days ago. It took about 6 hrs to travel there and it has been well more than 6 hrs since then. I’ve got a 25% Home Colony terrapoint bonus in Baikonur and 3 upcoming races still in Gagarin today.

Bug or am I missing something else?

Hi,

I edited my response since I made an error. If you are connected to the new colony AND it has at least 10 people then you should see races or it is a bug. If you think it is a bug then make an in-game ticket so they can help you there.

Ah that is the trouble then. Im pretty sure it’s just me and the one other guy I saw over there and went to help, nowhere near 10 players. It makes sense so a player can’t auto-win every race just by moving to an empty colony but with low server populations that means solo players have no incentive to move out on their own.

Well, unless you’re ok with shooting yourself in the foot just to see how the game works like me. Got our colony to lvl 2 now though! *flex*. :lol:
