Archives » Soooo.... I need money to operate, and it got eaten
3 mines in 1 city seems to be an issue

1 Year 9 Day 33, 16:31 The Mine OMC Varium Mine Number Three (ID: 362469) has completed with a yield of 573 Units and a running cost of 4,150,636 Credits.
[Mining] 2 Year 9 Day 33, 16:31 The varium deposit on Galradain at 12, 8 is now depleted.
[Credit] 3 Year 9 Day 33, 16:31 Your faction received 195,975 credits from the Tax Administration with the following message:
Mining operations in mine OMC Varium Mine Number Three.
[Credit] 4 Year 9 Day 33, 16:31 Offworld Mining Corporation has sent 4,150,636 credits to the server with the following message:
Cost of Mining for Mine OMC Varium Mine Number Three (ID: 362469)

now I'm aware Varium is expensive, but that top one does seem to be a bug, (made a bug report on it a week ago) and I'd like to a little prod for progress on it, but dunno who to talk to.

another mine, same city, showing

it appears, the mine running free doesn't happen, it just does its count, and no events.

I can confirm this, when a deposit is depleted the extraction cost that are paid are for a full yield, even if it is only a tiny part of what the full yield would be. As far as I know this has nothing to do with having more then one mine in a city, it seems to be a bug that gives really unfavorable outcomes when a deposit runs out.

I reported this several weeks ago, was a bit confused by the recent mining rules change but the issue still stands. Reported it here.

Then after depletion all but one mine is stopped, the other mine gives a weird yield with 0 cost. After a week nothing happens though and it is stopped anyways.

Edit: Grammar :/

can I get a response of some sort? I know I sound crochety, but it's been over a week, and I've got projects sitting on hold because 4 million is awol


Seems to be a valid issue, please bugbase it.

Is the fact a mine get full and extract only a tiny yield for the full estimated price maybe related to this?



I shall Copy Paste a tad to see if I can get someone to say something

I'd like to see

-a warning or mention of it in the rules page, it was my assumption that it'd just use up what's left, and no screw me on this much money

-a refund to cover at least part of the loss, it hurts to lose 4 million credits from my operating budget
