Really thinking about switching back to the Python, so I can outfit it as a Big Rig... Don't have a lot of free playtime, so I think it's better if I can mine solo, not sure I can wing up. Anyway, this is going to be epic! Beltalowda!
A good question. However, when was the last time a CG even failed? The very first threshold tends to be easy enough to hit. There were some occasions when Frontier set the bars too high that they were practically impossible to achieve, but in such cases, they modified them while the CG was running so it could be done.If the first fails does the second just not happen or is there a fall back?
Yes - and mining CGs don't have particularly high thresholds even at the higher end.A good question. However, when was the last time a CG even failed? The very first threshold tends to be easy enough to hit.
Hm. I hope it won't be set to accept the new rare drops only (for which you need the seismic charges), because if so, they might accidentally set the bars too high.We should bear in mind that there is a lot of interest in a successful CG on Frontiers side too, as they want us to showcase the new mining mechanics.

The last mining CG reached Tier 5 with only 424 participants (California Nebula), and you only need 600,000 tonnes for Tier 8.
Given the size of the expedition, even if not everyone brings mining gear, there should be plenty of people about.
Any word on whether mining tools and a refinery can be purchased here? I plan to travel in a Krait Phantom and don't have space to carry anything but lighweight mining lasers.
If i outfit my ship with mining gear and will be able to ditch them at the new station when its ready, can we transfer modules there also?
That's a curious decision - mining for materials is generally pretty slow compared with getting them by the SRV route , doesn't use the new mining tools at all, and since 3.0 there's been no penalty for hoarding every raw material in existence and carrying it around with you so lots of people will already have a substantial stock.We will not mine commodities but materials. We will only know which materials when the CG is announced by FD. They do not want anybody to hoard stuff before it begins.
