I decided to support the new Quantar Faction Mission that was just launched. Mining ice. I launched from The Stone Temple (Ekoos) in my Khamsin –Mercenary tagged as I did not want to fly to QC to switch to civ. Hit a couple of ice roids in Ekoos and then a couple more in Ring View — but as I worked my way down toward Quantar Depot, all of the ice roids were already hot — so I wasn’t able to extract much more. Got about 135 units or ore in total — about 120 ice. That makes about 4 units of Magnesium. That’s just rough.
And to heap insult upon injury, when I got to Depot, there was a problem with the mission computer. Being the impatient sort, I sold my ore anyway and at least got a Skill Star for my efforts. But FM credits and exp would have been nice. Maybe tomorrow.
