I’ve been obsessing with Star Citizen delivery missions. Video 1 and Video 2.
I thought maybe I could take two of them, and optimize my route. I was assuming that time spent going between planets was the longest. It might be, but just barely.
Upon examining video 2 in more detail (I didn’t have a recording of my own), I logged timestamps and made a pivot chart:
So even if a bunch of packages are at the same location, the effort of walking them to the ship may not be that much worse than doing a extra flight. But theoretically, what would the sort be?
- Well, DESTINATION port MUST come after SOURCE port.
- Put the same port together if you can (sometimes you have to visit it twice)
- Group the planets together? One less QT hop
So I tried it – Here’s my work in progress –
However, the game crashed on me, and I lost all the packages. So there’s a good reason to get done with a simple mission first without thinking too hard about it. Oh, and Planetary maps at this link: https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/comments/i3xhxr/3100ptu_sunrisesunset_triangulation_tool_and/
Ok, I might be off to try Mining thanks to Intergalactic Lan Party’s awesome playlist!
