Crystal mine.png


Crystal is the resource commonly used in electronics and a fundamental building block of ships, buildings, and research. It's more scarce and expensive to mine than ore.

Like the Ore Mine and the Hydrogen Synthesizer, the Crystal Mine can have workers assigned to it and will produce extra crystal.

Rather than producing in one lump sum every hour, mines produce resources continuously in Starfleet Commander, so you will see your resources update with every new page load.

Initial crystal storage capacity is 100k. When you are nearing your Crystal storage limit, the resource counter in the top right of the interface will turn orange. When the counter is red, your mine will stop producing. In order to resume production, you must either use the Crystal, move it elsewhere (including a fleet/resource save) or build a Crystal Warehouse to increase capacity.

Workers

One worker may be assigned to a mine from the beginning. Another is allowed with every three levels. So a level 3 mine may have 2 workers, a level 6 mine may have 3 workers, etc.

Workers able to work in the mine are:


Type Production Increase
Mining Droid 2%
Basic Android 4%
Human Worker 4%

Cost, Energy Use, and Production by Level, Universe 1

X = Level

Ore Cost = floor( 30 * (1.6)^X )

Crystal Cost = floor( 15 * (1.6)^X )

Energy Use = floor( 10 * X * (1.1)^X ) + (1 if X > 1)

Production Value = floor( 20 * X * (1.1)^X ) + 10

Note: The 10 unit offset is the initial production value for a new planet.

Universe 2

One aspect of the new universe 2 opened up in August, 2010, is that the mine production numbers have been changed to a different formula. This info should be added to this entry soon.

  • The following formula is tentative, based on a user's calculations, not info provided by BFG:

Crystal(x) = Floor(20*x*(1.14)^x) + 10


For an excel spread sheet where you a have a cell for your mine levels & planet temperature.
Excel example.png

Base Production

Ore =(30*$J9*(1.14)^$J9+20)
Crystal =(20*$J10*(1.14)^$J10+10)
Hydro =(12*$J11*(1.14^$J11)*(-0.002*$I25+1.28))

Droid Production
Ore: =(30*$J9*(1.14)^$J9+20)*1.1193 or reference the cell for base production J3*1.1193
Crystal: =(20*$J10*(1.14)^$J10+10)*1.1395 or reference the cell for base production J4*1.1395
Hydro: =(12*$J11*1.14^$J11*(-0.002*$I25+1.28))*1.18 or reference the cell for base production J5*1.18

Note.png The *1.1193, *1.1395 and *1.18 will need to be adjusted to fit your planet location and shift+6 = ^





The following is a partial table equivalent to the one above for universe 1

  • Note: "Equiv Crystal Cost" equals the combined ore+crystal cost of level as crystal based on merchant conversion value of 166 ore = 100 crystal

Starfleet Commander Nova

Production values for Crystal in SFC Nova are FLOOR(20*LEVEL*(1.14^LEVEL)+10)*(3600/2700)) for levels 1 through 30. After level 30 the production values are FLOOR((20*LEVEL)*((1.14)^(30+LN(LEVEL-29)))+10)*(3600/2700)).
