~~~Expedition Guide~~~

Sandman's Expedition Tips




OK... iv seen allot of threads regarding fleets that have been lost on Expeditions... and most are from aliens or pirates... others have just been gargled transmissions... or pictures of a black hole that your fleet got too close to... well this is to aid all those who are scared to loose there fleet..... Sandmans Expiditon Tips


"ZOMG ALIENS JUST DESTROYED MY WHOLE FLEET!!!!!"

Well there are two major things wrong with this picture....

  • First NEVER send your whole fleet or anything you don't want to loose on expeditions... it doesn't matter if you send 1k Deathstars there is a chance that they can be lost... not just by aliens but there are other events where your fleet has NO chance of returning....
  • Second DO NOT SEND AN ATTACKING FORCE the fleet make-up of the aliens and pirates are very closely related to what you send if you only send cargos they only send cargoes (usually with a few LF mixed in but not enough to do any damage...)



Send a decent amount of cargoes because there are great rewards to be found in outerspace... iv got over 500k from one expedition before!!!!









if you have anything to add i would like to see this get pined 1 day.. altho it may take sum work we need a good expedition guide... i will add to this periodicaly as i find new info

No... you haven't.

It's too soon for a guide, no one really knows how this works yet.

Oh i forgot, it's 500k value of ships or 2kk in res.

BTW, that's something that the guide should have in it!

i´m always sending 40 SC, 30 LC, 30 BS, 50 EP. in about 60% i got some ships ( cargos, battelcruisers, destroyers...). i´m always sending on 1 or 2 hours cause I think that in this time there is a bigger chance to get ships or resources. sometimes send fleet on 3 hours. above is not profitable in my opinion. never send 3-4 expeditions on the same hold time, always combinate.

Mine average:
60% - ships ( big amount of ships)
20% - resources ( always big amount-100k+ metal, 100k+ crystal and 50k+ deuterium)
10% - battle ( never lose more of 10 ships)
10% - nothing

Never lose fleet.


Thats my tactic.

On a tiny moon with its own atmosphere your expedition found some huge raw resources storage. The crew on the ground is trying to lift and load that natural treasure.
You got Crystal units of 470.000.

My question to the guide master is:

you say we should send many cargoes and not ships we don't want to lose.
have you ever found a significant amount of resources or ships sending only cargoes?

You got Metal units of 236.800.

What level of Expedition and how long was the hold time?

I've got Lvl 7, sent 1000 SC for 2hrs and got 189 DM :(

i have found that if you send cargoes,and probes only, you will get cargoes, probes, lf and hf. however if you send a bs, you will sometimes get bs and bc, and if you send a bc you may get the odd desti. so i always send 1 bs and 1 bc on expeditions.

A mix does seem to get the best results if you want ships, but tbh I'm looking from the POV of utilising spare cargos and fleet slots overnight.

hold time is a waste of time...

I send out 3 expeditions several times a day each holding 835 LC's and I'm making a killing on DM, Metal, Crystal, Deuterium and random Fleet to come back which i can now use to help me raid (i) at no cost to me.

Question, I have been away from the game for quite a few months now. I am just getting back in the swing of things. I am sending out a mission and want to send out another.

I just started building level 4 but it says I have too many missions going. I am trying to send one out from a completely different planet. Is there a limit on how many you can send?

its the square root of your expedition tech level

lvl 1,2,3= 1 mission
lvl 4,5,6,7,8 = 2 mission
etc......

RE: ~~~Expedition Guide~~~

I've covered most in the FAQ about Expeditions and Merchants found in the general and it will be updated soon to explain the lost fleets and new information that has been discovered since.
