You don't make synthetic ME, you buy it from TT.Thanks
That really sucks.
I want to make Mind essence and use it for MF.
There should be a switch on the chip to use only essence, ammo, or both.
along with an option to use one over the other like residue in crafting.
The clue is in the name I guess. Each bought from the tt -Yea ok.
I still don't wan't to use ammo for both.
I want to be able to see what I'm burning in ME when I use an MF chip.
I don't like using ammo for mining either, although I do when I want to stay out on a good run.
Why do they even have Synthetic if you can't chose to use it when you have a gun too?
Finders did use the uni ammo first initially too, but miners demanded a change and, amazingly, were heard.
IMO still at this point, chips should automatically use the Synthetic Essence before it touches the ammo.
Like adding enhancers? then you could unequip that ammo and tt it. I see the theory, but would be pants if you switch through a bunch of weapons in a hunt, and again a total faff for what gain... Keeping it simple works best imo.This is so easy to fix, just disable auto-switching between ammo types and add "preloading" - drag a stack of ammo of your choice onto your weapon and it will stick to this type until you drag something else.
