    Absolutely. I'm going to do another sample now. And intend to do a few more at intervals over the next weeks (though, as you can see, I don't spend much time on Calypso nowadays). Enough then to do some statistical tests.

    I tested out in the same sort of way on an unamped F-105 and F-101 (which I haven't used in a very long time). No point in listing the individual shots, but the hit rate results were: 15/40 shots (one or two hits on a combined ore/enmatter probe) 20/80 hits F-105 8/40 F-101 12/40 Poor...

    Ah, misunderstood. No, this particular finder has been in storage since the big mining changes. I've only just started using it again. That old history may explain why it's a bit off on your expectations?

    Sorry that it wasn't clear. Maxed finder: 15 hits out of 40 - so 37.5%. The other finder was: 9 hits out of 40 - so 22.5%. So that is reasonably in line with your prediction of:

    End of first test So after using one amp on the VRX and one amp on the TK, I've got these (fairly dreadful) results: where a shot = two sets of probes for ore and enmatter where a hit = a successful find on ore or enmatter 22/40 shots; 24/80 hits; Finder 1, 9/40; Finder 2, 15/40...

    Accessing the real state of eu

    I could be a mentor but haven't registered. Why? Because I want to be mentored first, and (correct me if I'm wrong) I don't think I can do the latter after the former. I haven't quite got round to seeking out a mentor (who would need to have a level above my top level 34), but maybe I should...

    HIT RATE TEST OK, so I'm doing a very small sample of 3600 probes. Might do another sample after that. Using four finders: 1. VRX2000 : 332.49/339.00 PED; 235.1/925.4 depth; Tier 1.6; Level 8 amp. No enhancers. 2. TK320 : 250.07/311.00 PED; 850.8/850.8 depth; Tier 7.7; Level 8 amp. No...

    What do you tell others that are interested in Entropia?

    I guess you mean that most players don't take money out of the game while active. Yes, in that respect for most RCE isn't important. But you do have an asset that can eventually be converted back into rl cash.

    Ah, hit rate. That's an easyish thing to sample. I'll try it on different combinations and report back.

    I'm not quite sure I understand either. But I guess the answer to your question is that I'm not testing, I'm experimenting. :scratch2: :silly2: About three years + ago, I went through a period of using a finder that was above my level (not then knowing enough about what I was doing), and...

    What do you tell others that are interested in Entropia?

    A guy who has been doing some work for me is an addicted gambler. By that I mean he has lost a lot of money, attended Gamb. Anon. meetings, is incapable of keeping any winnings and almost hopes that he loses because he knows that the next bet will double. So I showed him EU. :scared::bomb:

    What do you tell others that are interested in Entropia?

    A selling point is that the player base is relatively old. I, for one, feel very uncomfortable in games where players are maybe 40 years younger than me. Feel that I should be earning grooming skills.

    Not sure. I'm not doing this in a scientific way, more intuitive. If I continue to get oil at the rate I am, I'll stop very soon - I'm not so non-eco that I care for the lack of MU. I'll be pleased though if the tiering continues at this speed - the extra MU on a tier ten is significant. I've...

    As I said in the first post, an experiment. See what happens. I'm not concerned about being eco.
