Update ( still a problem )
03/09/2020 - 19:00 pm [ 142 / 671 ] Zone Chips installed
03/09/2020 - 23:33 am [ 130 / 671 ] Safe Zone Chips installed
12 Zone Chips used over 2.5 Hours ( 2.6 SZC per hours / 0.04 Pm ) **[ a. ]
At this pont I added [ 49 ] Safe Zone Chips that I had in store
03/09/2020 - 23:36 am [ 179 / 671 ]
I sourced more Safe Zone Chips from the local stations
**04/09/2020 - 00:00 am [ 175 / 671 ] [ b. ]
I added [ 38 ] Safe Zone Chips
04/09/2020 - 00:00 am [ 213 / 671 ]
04/09/2020 - 09:00 am [ 139 / 671 ] * 74 Chips consumed since last log *
74 Chips over 9 Hours [ 540 Minutes ] = 8.2 Zone Chips per hour ( 0.136 SZC per minute )
I am desperate for help Help ( or understanding ) on ( or of ) this is issue,
1). If I am calculating it wrong
2). What could double the consumption rate of Safe Zone Chips?
3). Could it be something I am doing without knowing?
My “Game” at the moment is just flying to, and hoping stations have SZC’s for me to purchase
**[ a. ] I assume the consumption of 12 SZC was for the full 3 hours and not 2.5
**[ b. ] I assume that the Safe Zone had consumed the 4 Safe Zone Chips for the hour of 00:00 - 01:00 am
I do have a faction members Large Grid Ship docked to my grid via a connector.
It has a Mk1 Safe Zone installed ( currently no Safe Zone chips are installed although it has never been turned on ) - could somthing like this be causing the consumption issue? ( Grid Name Collosus - owner A7X131 )
This leads to some Questions
- If a safe Zone is not “Safe Zoning” e.g. not turned on - does it still consume Zone Chips?
- Does a Safe Zone use the same amount of chips when set to Minimum range as Maximum Range?
