Not Getting XP when crafting

Just collected xp when signed on 9 extractors/30 mass crafts on each and they were oort shards as well. Seems to be working for me. Does anyone else have access to your machines (someone could have cancelled them and redid then to snag the xp)

I’m the only one who has perms. Nothing has been touched by other characters.

It’s a ton of XP too…

No idea if its the same thing but I noticed if I do a craft with an alt, but then later grab the items with my main then I get the exp as soon as I log in the alt instead of when I go to the machine so I don’t always notice the exp message since its during the login.

If I start the craft on the alt and don’t touch the machines with my main, then I get the exp as I get close to the machines like normal.

I just tested this with making essence with meat.

I am 100% NOT getting XP.

ouch, a bug for sure then

Further testing is they are guild controlled beacons.

Which… I didn’t realize and am glad I figured it out. However… no XP on Machines on guild controlled beacons.

Weird, I get xp on mine… (guild controlled)


Is it your guild or a guild you are a part of?

Is the beacon alignment set to the guild you are currently aligned to.

Controlled or aligned? I assume controlled.

I’m quite sure I get mine from the now aligned beacon (for spark reasons…)…

Mine are controlled and I get xp

Further testing.

I don’t know if it’s being guild controlled, but the machines were in on beacon, yet they sit right on the boarder of another. So even if you’re right in front of it, it doesn’t give XP until you’re standing inside the beacon.

to be very specific: xp for crafting is awarded when you enter the beacon that the crafting was completed in.

(eg: if machine was in beacon A when crafting happened, then plots were removed and machine was claimed by beacon B you would get the XP when entering beacon A since that is the one the crafting happened in, and if beacon A is destroyed, but if the crafting didnt complete until it was already in B, youd get it for entering B instead etc.)

(the “beacon the machine is inside of” is determined by just looking at whatever block happens to be first in the storage of what 4 blocks the machine is composed of (for multi-block machines), so if the machine is inside more than 1 beacon you dont necessarigly know which it will award to, and if the machine was partially unplotted at the time of crafting it may not award xp at all)


What happens if I permission someone, they start a bunch of furnaces, then I depermission them? Do they still keep getting xp?


the implementation as it stands would not award the xp (totally should though…)


If they’re repermissioned on a later trip could they then collect the XP, or would the unpermissioned trip cause it to be forgotten?

I presume it goes into the ether like our taxes

as far as I can see looking quickly, as long as its within a week theyd get the xp… the xp records are dropped (Assuming more records are inserted) after a week it seems.

this system of returning to the beacon to get your xp is because we cant award xp to a user is offline/on another world so they get queued up instead hoping the character will return to claim them.

there is technically a beacon-wide limit to how many records can be stored before old ones just start getting dropped too, seperate to the 1-week cutoff; but that limit is currently set STUPIDLY high (stupid like the server will probably run out of ram before they get hit…)


I can confirm I did not get the XP of the other crafts. It’s been over a week. I did. Get it sorted now though. :blush:

It actually happened to me a few days ago.

I logged in, approached the machines (character was left close to them) and there was no xp message in the top right log. I checked endeavor and it was at 313 (as far as I remember now).

I waited for the second mass of the same item to finish, standing in front of the machine, and again: no xp message in the log and endeavor stayed the same.
