QMG items in Commercial Store

Post by Roger Olfart » Mon May 02, 2016 3:47 pm

I have a few QMG items in my Settlememt storage ..... Does the Freight unit open up to receive the QMG items, from outside of the Genesis Base at some point in the development of the accumulation of experience or points?

Yes, as you level up your Genesis plot, the option to withdraw some of those QMG items becomes available, including a line of research that increases how many you can withdraw per day. I believe the option is tied into having a freight port going, but someone can correct me if I'm misremembering on this last point.

I think he is asking: can you import QMG into the genesis base from outside sources (salvaging/loot).
As far as I know, no.

Ah, you're right - I see that now that I reread the original question. This is what happens when I respond to the forums before I've had my morning coffee :-P

And to support MarcSp, the answer is no - importing into your Genesis never opens up as an option, as they are intended to be self-sustaining and not reliant on external sources. Which also means that your higher level production is dependent on your own low-level production, not on what you can do outside of Genesis - i.e. you can't skip the base level buildings and build fleets from your other activities in the game, for exactly that reason.

That said, there are no shortage of things outside of Genesis that want those QMG items too, so it's not a total loss ;-)

I guess my Dementia has kicked in (yes, i reached pensioner level 1) but I don't remember seeing a demand for QMG items?

They are used in some schematics (sett weaps FANG/HELLCAT) also in the AMR refineries schematics.
I think they are also in some of the PM ship modules and the AMR drones.

It sounds like you are short one or two genesis factories on your base. It might be better to concentrate
on building those. Once they are in place, you will generate more stuff than you need and will be looking to
export them (malls/gbm) rather than importing stuff.

Thanks ....you are correct that I am missing three manufacturing units (although I have a friend who has loaned me them).
I will look at the AMR builds for inspiration .. thanks

To add a little balance here :
QMG - Alloys T1 - Used in 57 Schematics
QMG - Alloys T2 - Used in 57 Schematics
QMG - Biologicals - Used in 38 Schematics
QMG - Chemicals T1 - Used in 27 Schematics
QMG - Chemicals T2 - Used in 31 Schematics
QMG - Components - Used in 47 Schematics
QMG - Construction - Used in 60 Schematics
QMG - Electronics - Used in 48 Schematics
QMG - Engineering - Used in 49 Schematics
QMG - Fabrication - Used in 58 Schematics
QMG - Gas T1 - Used in 32 Schematics
QMG - Gas T2 - Used in 23 Schematics
QMG - Industrial - Used in 34 Schematics
QMG - Mechanical - Used in 41 Schematics
QMG - Technology - Used in 37 Schematics
Thought I'd promote that QMG's are used in a fair few builds these days and that will only grow over time.
