Veins Utilization (Upgrade)

From DSP Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Summary

Veins Utilization is an repeatable upgrade that applies a -6% ore consumption / miner product (power of 0.94 per level) and +10% mining speed (multiple of +10% per level). The ore consumption decreases exponentially, while the mining speed and cost in universe matrix and hashes increases linearly. The speed increasement also affects on Oil Extractor, Water Pump and Orbital Collector.

Technically, the maximum level is 10,000, with 199,820,040,000 Universe Matrices (AKA, white cubes). But you'll run out of time in your life before you get anywhere close to that level, since the cost for each subsequent level increases linearly by +4,000 universe matrix and +3,600,000 hashes. In practice, most players will never research above level 20-30. The lowest ore consumption you can get is 1.121039E-44 at level 1633, which will consume 5,304,024,000 white cubes.
