Question regarding the loot cap
 
Disclaimer: I am not raging etc over this and I understand the design decision behind it, but I am just fishing for information

I was testing out my ships new build tonight by doing some battleship royale rumbles on elite a couple of times, to put it through its paces while soloing, and i noticed after a certain point that all loot drops stopped, entirely

After a little bit of searching i found some mentions of there possibly being some sort of cap of some sort on drops within UGC content, however in all my googling etc I could never find any real numbers or official data

What exactly is the cap ((if it can be quantified or ballparked?)) and what is the cooldown/reset time for that counter? Just would be handy to know

No Loot
 
Theres not any info to amount of drops per ugc but there is cap per day which i can only assume 24hrs before resets, i dont think it affects normal gameplay as i still get drops from normal play.

I do understand why they have made a cap cause otherwise you coud make way to much money, whats the point of that. though i think it should be increased.

But they are great for fm and dilithium.

Ah ok, well as long as they reset within a reasonable timeframe, hmm I may guess it would reset at the same time as dilithium, then again, that is a mere guess not based on any hard facts, would like to know if it is

From my experience, the loot cap resets at the same time as the dilithium refinement cap.
