Ore mine.png
Ore is the most used, and most abundant resource in the galaxy. It is the fundamental building block of ships and buildings, and can also be used in researching many technologies. As such, the ore mine is generally the first mine new Starfleet Commanders will build.

The Ore Mine produces ore at a set hourly rate. Like the Crystal Mine and the Hydrogen Synthesizer, the Ore Mine can have workers assigned to it and will produce extra ore.

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 ore storage capacity is 100k. When you are nearing your Ore 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 Ore, or increase your Ore Warehouse's capacity. Alternatively, the mine will produce as long as the ore is sent off on a Fleet/Resource Save mission.

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

n = Level
x⌋ = Floor function of x; i.e., x rounded down to the largest whole number less than or equal to x.


Ore Cost = ⌊40·1.5n

Crystal Cost = ⌊10·1.5n

Energy Use = ⌊10·n·1.1n⌋ + (1 if n > 1)

Production Value = ⌊30·n·1.1n⌋ + 20

(In other words, even at level 0 there will still be production of 20; once a mine is built, the production will be calculated from 30 · n · 1.1n, plus 20. NOTE that 1.1n does not mean 1.1·n; it means 1.1 to the Power of n, or 1.1 times it self n times; Example: for n=14 (level 14), (1.114) is not 15.4, it is 3.7975.)


Note 1: The 20 unit offset is the base production value, even without any ore mine levels.

Note 2: The Ore and Crystal costs are the upgrade cost (to go from the previous level to that level) but the Energy Use and Production Value are the absolute values for that level.

Note 3: The Floor stands for a function inside of Excel that allows the equations output to be rounded down to the nearest whole number.

Starfleet Commander 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. The info provided below is not from BFG, but from a player that compiled the calculations.

Ore = ⌊30·n·1.14n⌋ + 20

Crystal = ⌊20·n·1.14n⌋ + 10

Hydro = ⌊12·n·1.14n·(-0.002·max_temp + 1.28)

where n is the mine level.


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

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)*1.26-6 or reference the cell for base production =(J3*1.26)-6
Crystal: =(20*$J10*(1.14)^$J10+10)*1.22-3 or reference the cell for base production =(J4*1.22)-3
Hydro: =(12*$J11*1.14^$J11*(-0.002*$I25+1.28))*1.3-1 or reference the cell for base production =(J5*1.3)-1

Note.png The *1.26-6, *1.22-3 and *1.3-1 will need to be adjusted to fit your planet location and shift+6 = ^



Starfleet Commander Extreme Universe 2

Extreme Universe two doubles the production numbers. Thank you to whoever put together the SFC: Uni2 number above, they were the base used for the numbers below.

Ore = ⌊60·n·1.14n⌋ + 40

Crystal = ⌊40·n·1.14n⌋ + 20

Hydro = ⌊24·n·1.14n·(-0.002·max_temp + 1.28)

Starfleet Commander Nova

Production values for Ore in SFC Nova are ⌊40·n·1.14n + 26⅔⌋ for levels 1 through 30. After level 30 the production values are ⌊40·n·1.1430+ln(n-29) + 26⅔⌋.

Starfleet Commander Conquest

Hourly production values for Ore in Conquest are ⌊80·n·1.14n + 53⅓⌋.

Conquest was initially released with a soft cap like Nova has, but this was later removed.


Starfleet Hired Guns

Hourly production values for Ore in Hired Guns are the same as Conquest, ⌊80·n·1.14n + 53⅓⌋.
