The Alien Worlds mining game has just undergone a second update based on community input, with the installation of a new series of orbital Trilium-detection sensory satellites that are now operational for all six planets. This upgraded network provides even more precise Trilium locational and pocket density information, that more sophisticated mining tools can automatically analyze to more efficiently mine on a given tract of land.
We previously implemented dedicated pools of Trilium rewards that can only be accessed by tools of a certain rarity. This means that players with rarer tools can potentially create strategies that mine moreTrilium. Explorers select across pools to mine with multiple tools, with each pool contributing a percentage of the total mined based on the strategy being deployed by the player and the rarity of the tools being used.
This update is the result of community collaboration, and is based on a suggestion from Explorer FifthAce, a staple of the community and Galactic Hubs grant recipient.
The Federation will continue to make tool balancing adjustments as needed in the near term, with specific levels expected to adjust over time to result in the best experience for you.
Overall, this second balancing update to the Alien Worlds mining game demonstrates the continued role of the community in implementing changes to the Alien Worlds gaming experience. The new structure is listed in the chart below.
