This game is based on idea that we are miners who have to send supply to home planet. So mining operations should be main goal of this game. Extensive mining operations. Two roads from there... It can be that only or most efficient way to get exp is to send resources to space. And then you can use EXP to add to different corporations... Or that we have "as it is" to level corporations, but to unlock blocks we need "miner EXP" points that we get by sending resources to orbit. To move actual production in that direction it can be set that value rise with level of preparation of resources. So raw-refined-preproduced 1 - preproduced 2 - preproduced 3 - and preproduced 4, for each level of component factory to make resources more and more valuable and to get more "miner EXP" by sending them to orbit. So mining can be used both for making money and for earning "miner EXP". ___________________________________________________ PS. PLEASE set Mike's missions as part of tutorial so they can be turned OFF for people who already know what to do, it is extremely BORING to listen to him for 45th time.
