When entering a system, a certain strategy is best used to the most amount of resources are gathered.
Order of Planet VisitsEdit
When you’re in a system that has a supply station or a garden planet, you can count on a free refill of some resources. Visit the supply station first to see what kind of resource it supplies. If it supplies fuel, do your mining and return. If there is a garden planet, do the rest of your mining first, then visit the planet for an Oxygen refill. If there’s a ship, visit the ship first, (after the supply station if there is one). Use the lesser ship to mine the system, and maybe even neighboring systems, then transfer to the new ship. The better ship can be left for a time and used as a temporary resource cache.
