When does MTK stop becoming profitable?


Johannas

Recommended Posts

I have 2 weeks on holiday now where i won't have access to a computer.

 

Just wanted to know what percentage (or whereabouts) that you start losing money instead of gaining in MTK.

 

 

 

Even if i'm still going to profit after ~16 days of neglect i'd still like to know.

 

 

 

Thanks.

You will still be profiting I believe, however, if for some reason you do not want to risk this, then take the cash out before the holiday!

 

 

 

Personally I would leave it. Afterall, WHATS THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN??

Put enough to lose only 75k per day. You only need 100% the day you withdraw I believe.

 

 

 

No, you need 100% each day before the update to get the full results, but I heard you should still profit even at 60%.

Yeah you musn't confuse these things.

 

 

 

Approval is stored day by day.

 

However the items you get aren't generated until you ask for them, whihc is why u can swap from raw fish to aples then withdraw and get all maples.

 

 

 

However just becuz u have 100% at the time doesn't mean u get 100% for each day u left it.

 

 

 

But yeah 2 weeks shuld be fine, it only drains around 1% a day and anything above 80% still gives gr8 profit, and anything above about 60% still gives profit.

Are you sure? I remember I put one worker on mahogany for the fremenik diary, then the next day I switched it, and after two more days of waiting, I still got mahogany logs. :?

Just tried to do it myself. Had flax and maples (both for seeds), changed it to fish+coal before withdrawing, but still got my flax, maples and seeds. :|

 

 

 

Are you sure the "time of collection" doesn't mean when your subjects collect the resources every day, around midnight?

Unless they changed very recently it it should be

 

 

 

Talk to advisor > collect resources NO > change settings > talk to advisor > collect resources YES > get whatever you're new settings are

 

 

 

I've done it a few times when the most profitable ones change and nvr had a problem

Depending on the jobs you set them it can be anything upto about 50 days (since you currently double your money with some of the options).

I'll confirm this is correct, as of about a week and a half ago.

Well 2 weeks away from a computer means that you will get at a minimum of 76% approval, and MTK usually isn't worth it once it hits about 50-60%. You should be fine, oh and have a good vacation ;) .
