Now just bum rush your first choice to level 15 by putting in the 20hr project in all four slots.
This is what i intend to do.

I have an idea for what Season 11 should be; Season 11: The Big Bug Fix.
I have not been able to read my bug tickets in over a year, not even the tickets about not being able to see my tickets.
I find the drama of your signature proof of your immaturity, this means you, DR whiners.

yeah except to unlock the specific console, only take 27 or so day, and then 27 more to get the max chance of top rarity

I'm displeased with the massive grind INTENDED to get us to buy dil with real world money to bypass it.

That's just hideous.

But, on top of that the aesthetics are totally gone. I, for one, do NOT want to rely on the 100% borked results of the doff system, where 100% sure success means you fail. Nice math, there.

However, you go to the R&D screen and you get nothing. You see components. For what? These are useless. I don't have recipes. I need a tech tree list like from Civilizations, that say "I want THIS, which means I do this that and that, to GET to this" -- none of that is available. So you don't know what end items need which parts.

It's really a terrible implementation and design for a crafting system, including the part where your end results are randomly dictated by the poor math Cryptic's DOFF system uses.

Do the 20 hr assignment for 6000 xp until you get your skill up in that school. Unlock more crafting slots. It won't consume a lot of materials that you're going to need later on.

And you're going to want to get ahold of those rare materials. You can't craft Mk VIII or higher without them. So take your time and stockpile.
No no no...

1) Run a single Mk II project
2) Run a single Mk VI project
3) Unlock 2nd craft slot
4) Chain run XP projects until lvl 4 in a single school
5) Unlock 3rd craft slot
6) Get to lvl 5 in your first school
7) Get to lvl 5 in two more schools
8) Unlock 4th craft slot
9) Chain run XP projects in your first school until lvl 15
10) Unlock 5th craft slot

I've been out of the game for nearly 2 months due to computer troubles and family responsibilities, so I apologize if this has been answered: if we had achieved all tiers under the prior crafting system, do we have to start from scratch under the new one? Is there any kind of conversion for the old particle traces and unreplicatable materials?

Yes you have to start the new one. Right click on your old traces and use to convert it.

question on the materials. We have a fleet bank full of gases, particle traces, ect. These are now all useless besides converting them into the new system, correct? I just don't want to convert all of the rare stuff if it might be used somewhere else.
