Speeding up mining operations in Universal Combat Series Posted April 23, 2003 · Report reply Nope no way to speed up gametime that I know of. But mining speed could go faster if you find a system with a higher mineral concentration. If you dock with the local station in that sector you go to tradecom and then to info and it should have the percentage of the minerals in that system...the higher the better. I havent found better than 42% (Rinaal system...insurgent owned) but im sure there is somewhere out there. Sometimes I wish there was a way to take core samples of planets to find out the percentage and concentration of minerals before I sit around for hours waiting on them to fill up.
