Squirrel Posted April 23, 2016 Share Posted April 23, 2016 They have stated a number of small crew ships can be soloed at less efficiency. That reduction is either from the NPC taking the crewmember's place or because the human has to keep switching back and forth between tasks. So, the main tasks I see a DUR having going on are piloting and scanning. You may have issues scanning an asteroid field while zipping through it. You might need to stop more often in the process. The reality is that this is all theory until some of the mechanics are in play. Personally, I have just made plans of where I am thinking of going at a particular point and make sure my fleet gives me flexibility to change as I feel the need in the future. What you could do is pick up a MAX to Prospector CCU for free and then wait and see how the mechanics work out over time. The DUR and MAX are always on sale. If you want to go with the DUR, you CCU to that. If you want to do the Prospector, you CCU to a MAX and then use your purchased CCU from MAX to Prospector. This would give you the flexibility to do either one but also wait until we see more mechanics for both exploration and mining actually become playable. Until then, all we have to base things on are theory crafting based on developer stated intent. Gabriel Theodoulos 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
