Extractor Change

Extractor Change

Up till this point we have dealt with Extractors in a simple and yet it seems, somewhat uncompromising way. Normally when they are Full (the hopper is full) or the Resource Spawn expires we remove the Extractor and place it in the local collection Point.

Well as of today that has all changed!

I have decided to relent on making you traipse all over the Universe to collect your ‘forgotten’ extractors before they expire in the Collection point and vanish forever! From now on, when a Resource Spawn expires or the Extractor Hopper becomes full – the Extractor will be pulled and sent DIRECTLY back to your ship.

You still lose any resources collected, but you get the extractor back and a standard PM informing you of the return of the item.

Over the last few months, I’ve dealt with numerous ‘Where did my extractor go Coops‘ queries, each taking time to look into and time to explain where 99% of the time players have simply been away when the items were placed in collection and wiped before they could get to them.

We already extended the Collection Point to a full 30 days so this is about as ‘Nice’ as I can get without collecting them personally for you LOL.

So as of THIS POST, any Extractors removed for one reason or another will be returned directly to your ships store.

PLEASE NOTE: There are close to 130 Extractors sat in the collection Point at this point in time. All awaiting Captains to go and collect them. THESE will NOT be affected by this change as they have already been processed and placed in the collection Point.

    Core exiles is great. You will know when you deploy the extractors and try it!

    It’s just a little change, but it makes a big difference to not have to trek across the galaxy to pick up an overflowing extractor! It’s doubly nice that we won’t lose them if they sit in the collection pickup for too long.

    Thanks for the thoughtful change, Coops!

    Yes, having reactors returned to ships stores is a great improvement!

  5. Wannabekilla says:

    That is a very nice change. It will give us more time to do other things.

    This is a change that most will be very glad of and it really is Quality of Life improvement in the game.
    Helps save a lot of fuel too so hat off on this 1!

    great idea! It saves you time and saves us some big resource hits. I was out of the game a while for medical reasons and nearly lost everything. If I had, probably I’d have left the game.

    Nice, AI in game? Possible a site effect of the long campaign against or with the A.I. .
