STF's, boff missions, gathering/buying enough contraband for the turn in contraband mission (using money from salvage drops from stfs). Its possible and requires at least 5 hours a day to do.

Maybe i'm doing something wrong but it takes at least 2 hours to get 8000 dilithium with one character. (not counting contraband missions, since it doesn't seem to be very cost-efficient to me, because contraband has to be bought too.)

But as arctcwolf said he's doing that with 6 characters every day, that would be at least 12 hours of doing all the same EVERY DAY.

There's the usual dil route, which usually takes me about 45 mins to complete, tac or eng.

I was just testing.

1 Foundry mission - 1440 Dilithium Ore
Traelus System - Satellite Repair - 480 Dilithium Ore
Sh'mar - Distress Signal - 480 Dilithium Ore
Defense Contract - 480 Dilithium Ore
Aiding the Deferi (Daily) - 1440 Dilithium Ore
Rescue Deferi Captives (Daily) - 480 Dilithium Ore
Emancipation (Daily) - 480 Dilithium Ore
Explore Strange New Worlds - 1440 Dilithium Ore
Khitomer Vortex(Elite) - 960 Dilithium Ore

1hour 43 minutes - 7680 Dilithium Ore

If i would do this with 5 different Characters EVERY day i would get 38400 Dilithium Ore per day, which would take 8 hours and 35 minutes with doing the same stuff all day.
Is there something important i'm missing?
TBH i'm not in the mood to do the same stuff for 8 hours every single day, since i think a game should be fun (i know that sounds crazy, lol).

1 foundry mission - 1440dilithium ore - it takes less then 5 min
1 ESTF - 980 dilithium ore - under 10 min.
so do the foundry mission and after that run estfs. in additional you get marks and proccesors that can be changed in dilithium as well. the dilithium cap can be done in aprox 30 minutes if you have good groups for stfs to do them in 5-7min.

If we all live in boxes that doesn't mean my box is the same color like yours

Nice work.
This topic might also be titled "What devs should nerf next so players don't earn so much"

And I can't even hit 1 million a day. So if anything here leads to any nerfs, well, ain't I a sad player?

You seriously think they are reading the forums?
If they would, they should read other threads which are much more important than this one.

You have missed the history of the fed question at starfleet academy that gives 480 dil in 2 mins. Yes you must get the answers correct to get the dil but all the correct answers are on the wiki under LORE so I have a shortcut saved. And if you do the spotlight foundry mission you get 2880 dil. Thats 8000 easy in 1hr 45. ]
