January 2020
Cycled: 67,755.60
Markup Input: 1063.08 PED
Markup Saved due to UL: 1355.02 PED
Total: +1408.72 PED (96.14% TT)

No notable hits

Summary: Stopping early because I am going on a cruise on Friday. Will return Mid-Feb. I upgraded to a UL7 for extra cycling and overall markup reduction. Look forward to mining when I return. I do have markup to sell but that will be included in February (date of sale).

While I did not hit anything over a XVIII, I overall had a fun, but also boring month. It was nice to relax and mine given the way things had been over the last couple years.

Modified January's numbers for recent sales and added totals.

On that, see you in 2 weeks! :D

PRO TIP: On a side note, when your credit card company calls and asks what a charge is for to Entropia Universe - don't tell them it is for bombing equipment. They just won't understand. #sadface

Hey atomic, looking at your totals here threw me for a loop. You show positive (+) results in green, and yet you show lower then 100% returns. I'm guessing that you are taking into account the markup you spent on limited gear when solving for return percent?

The loot system never accounts for markup. Not on markup spent on things like enhancers or limited weapons, nor on markup gained from loot such as oils, items and ESI etc, markup values are just transactions between players.
Because of this statement, maybe you should do a TT return % without markup first, and then you can do one with markup factored in?

Just a thought, might be easier to see what the loot engine is doing/thinking if you did it that way.

Good luck o/

The numbers do consist of overall profit with what the TT% is already.

Yes, the markup inputs are counted already as well. There are many other stats, etc. that I am intentionally not sharing like I have done in my previous log.

Ok so let's take January fo example:

January 2020
Cycled: 67,755.60
Markup Input: 1063.08 PED
Markup Saved due to UL: 1355.02 PED
Total: +1408.72 PED (96.14% TT)
How is the +1408.72 profit arrived at? Are you factoring in the MU of resources you got? Or are you doing a straight TT In vs TT Out equation?

Which one is it?

You will be surprised on how much better mining is compared to hunting :)
But that 90k cycle with that profit is not impressive. It is a start and it will just be better im sure.

Best of luck!

Since his total is: "Total: +1408.72 PED (96.14% TT)" its not only TT in and TT out, or it would be a negative result. He is factoring the MU.

February 2020 (Mining)
Cycled: 74378.01 PED
Markup Input: 366.52 PED
Markup Saved due to UL: 4412.10 PED
Total: +813.52 PED (96.29% TT)

No notable hits (again)

Summary: Nothing notable. Did quite a bit of experimenting that resulted in lower than normal MU. I do have markup to sell but that will be included when it sells. In the end, I profited and also saved an enormous amount of markup by having a UL.

February 2020 (Hunting)
Cycled: 12603.27 PED
Markup Input: 144.55 PED
Total: -295.07 PED (97.66% TT)

Summary: In theory, I am in the + because of markup (ESI), but it is not sold yet. Starting path to L70 clubs.
