# 1 Limit on Dropped Items
01-22-2013, 11:43 AM
Two questions regarding the limit on dropped items:

1. Why is it in the game.

2. When does it reset?

If you're talking about the foundry limit, it's to keep people from abusing it.
The reset is 24 hours I believe.

Seems to reset with dilithium refining.

As for why, run the mission Weapons Free once. Tally up your loot (remembering that the limit probably kicked in about half way through). Multiply by how many times you can run that in short order. If that's less than entirely too much, run it again with heavy use of torpedo spread and redo the math.

It doesn't apply to anything else, and I've hit it plenty of times and still gone on to get all kinds of loot from non-Foundry content.

Just spend a **** load of cash on refurbish of one ship and thought to soften the impact at the foundry. Halfway the 2nd run the drops stopped.

TBH i got a bit tired from the endless deferi, neutral zone, STFE runs and went into the foundry as an alternative.

Can't they double it? All i got were commodities and green gear. Barely made 300k from that stuff.

Set the difficulty to elite before you start it improve your loot drops somewhat.

I do this myself, and with Weapons Free I tend to get a bit more Green and a few Blue drops. Sometimes even a Purple if I'm lucky.

Game features I'd like to see improved / expanded: Better Ship Interiors // BOff Costume Slots
