How much oort do you need, really?
As a casual player I did 1 hunt the other day and got 124 oort, that is just shy of 7 mass crafts for 1750 oort shards. The biggest 3x3 portal takes what, 5-6 shards per hour? That means my casual 1 hour hunt fed the largest portal size I’ve seen in regular use, for 291 hours… or nearly 2 weeks. Is my math wrong?
So let’s say there are 39 planets and you need, let’s say on average the 3x3, so 1 portal per planet at 6 shards per hour is 39 * 6 = 234 shards per hour… that’s 39,000 shards per week. That means you need 21 hunt-hours per week to handle your portals. Not counting any footfall, which admittedly is low. So 5 people running 5 1-hour hunts per week can fund the entire network.
That seems like a really low effort ratio to me… that’s like, almost personally doable by 1 person if that’s all they ever did. For an industrial scale mega-operation…
