Increasing your income beyond your mines

|

Published: Jul 23, 08:21 AM by: Robert ~ Voidhawk

Income in oGame is measured in Metal, Crystal, Deuterium and Energy. Generally you would increase these by building alone, but there are several other ways to gain advantage over other players.

1. Asteroid Fields

If you see a destroyed planet where the number has an A next to it, you can attack it and gain half the resources. While most players move their resources off it first, you can still gain small amounts. Always send an espionage probe first though, if the planet had defenses, they are still active.

An asteroid field is generally there for 24 hours from when a planet is destroyed. In some cases, players have reported it in place for much longer.

2. Recycle

A little better additional source of income is recycling. To do this you need to build recyclers, so get that tech up there and get them. If you look at the galaxy pages, you will find that some of the planet numbers have a T by them.

Hover over it with your mouse and you can see how much Metal (M) and Crystal (K) are floating there. Send a recycler to the debris field of the planet to collect the resources. You can pick up as much as your recycler can carry up to 100% of the resources there. The owner of the planet does not see you coming, and there is no chance of losing your recycler, so don’t bother to send other ships as escort.

Recycling Made Easy – Your guide to Debris Field is a great way to learn how to send those recyclers.

3. Raiding

This can double your income almost instantly. There is a completely separate topic on raiding, that you can find here.

  2. I am working on a Tech Tree. It will be a bit before I have it complete, but once I do, it will become part of the OGame Strategy Guide.

  7. I just had some cargo ships on the way to a asteroid field. When I checked on it later on the field had dissapeared…and so had my cargo ships. They’re not at the planet they started at and they’re not on their way back. What’s up? Do you just lose ships on their way to an asteroid field if it disappears?

  8. Nevermind. They didn’t show up on my Overview or Fleet screens, but they still came back.

  9. can you send extra cargo ships w your recycler
    so he can carry more ???

  10. No. Recyclers are the only ships capable of harvesting debris fields.

  11. recycling mixed with a little raiding is a very efficient strategy when executed right. Today alone, ive made over 110k from just that (a lot for a person who has only played for a month or so, in my opinion), not to mention what the mines on all 4 of my planets are making.

  12. Expedition Research – Here’s a new way to get extra resource although it has it’s risks. Every level of this research gives you 1 hour in outerspace/slot 16. Send a fleet with cargo capacity and you might get some resource but then again you might get attacked by pirates and lose half your mission fleet. I’ve just sent a small fleet in for 1 hour, will report back soon.
    Ps . I’m betting i get dark matter as I think this is a scheme to get you into using officers etc. Lots of free dark matter to begin with to get you hooked.

  13. Oh well – I had an encounter with pirates.
    I sent 8 LC 4 BS 1 DS
    My fleet Attacked 1 LC and 1 BS. I won but lost 1 LC. I was the attacker? Didn’t get an option.
    I also sent an esp probe on the mission which apparently gives you extra info. Here’s the message I got.
    “Some primitive barbarians are attacking us with spaceships that can’t even be named as such. If the fire gets serious we will be forced to fire back.

    Entry from the communications officers logbook: It feels great to be the first ones traveling through an unexplored sector.”

  14. I know i’m talking to myself here and i promise this is the last post but just wanted to show you that you can get income from this method. Here’s my last mission.

    Our expedition found a planet which was almost destroyed during a certain chain of wars. There are different ships floating around in the orbit. The technicians are trying to repair some of them. Maybe we will also get information about what happened here.

    The following ships are now part of the fleet:
    Battlecruiser 1
    Large Cargo 1

    Entry from the machines officers logbook: Sadly we do not have enough capacity to bring all those nice ships home.

    Entry from the communications officers logbook: It feels great to be the first ones traveling through an unexplored sector.

  15. I don’t know if this is the right place to put this, but does anybody know what this means: My battle reports (before they are opened) say:

    Battle Report (2,80)[1:148:10](V:108.000,A:0)

    I know what the (V:xx, A:xx) means: how much the defender lost and how much the attacker lost, but can somebody tell me what the (2,80) means?

  16. How do you send your fleet on an expedition?

    2,90 is the number of ships. I think. So Defender had 2 ships and attacker had 80.
