When is neptunium generated?

Questions about rules, how things work, etc.

  • I currently have a mining rate of 72/day. What exactly does this mean? 72 once every 24 hours, 3 every hour or 1 every 20 minutes?

  • The total of 72/day is how it's calculated (presumably 3 mines and 24 total outposts?). This is spread equally across the day as you say, so you actually gain 1 Np every 20 minutes, as you say.

  • To know how frequently it's generated without calculating, tap a mine at look at its "+1 Np every #h" message.

  • You should actually be generating Np roughly every .3 hours.

  • When trying to estimate the rate of gaining neptunium it is important to know that each of your mines acts independently.

    To explain; If you have 2 mines and 12 outposts you are producing 24 neptunium per day. However, you cannot assume that you will get 1 neptunium per hour. Each mine will generate 1 neptunium every 2 hours (12 per mine per day) and this is calculated from the last time that it generate neptunium. So if you build the 2 mines at the same time then they will generate their neptunium together every 2 hours.

    This can cause a little bit of confusion when the neptunium numbers in the leaderboard are changing in a rather unexpected fashion.

    Actually it's every 0.3333 hours which is exactly 20 minutes. ;)

    @Champinonan Thanks for the clarification. So in my example (3 mines, 24 outpost) every mine generates one neptunium every hour depending on when I build them. Thanks.

    Yeah. In your example you wont even notice what I was talking about because the neptunium is fairly constant.

    But if you had 4 mines and only 6 outposts you'd certainly notice not receiving neptunium every hour.
