Polar express VS Ursa 9... is this math right?


Recommended Posts

N= number of runs

g= number of gates

D= total warp distance

S= speed

C= total crates

p=1.25= polar express bonus

 

1+Gn+N = number of loading screens

1+ n = walks across the station

ND/S= seconds in warp

CN(P)= total crates moved

 

For polar express in 4 runs between 2 stations in the same sector 100K apart

1+1*4+4 loading screens

1+4 walks across either station

400/4 seconds in warp

80*1.25 crates

 

9 loading screens

5 walks across a station

100 seconds in warp

100 crates moved

 

URsa 9 in 5 runs

1+1*5+5 loading screens

1+5 walks across either station

500/5 seconds in warp

100 crates moved

 

11 loading screens

6 walks across a station

100 seconds in warp

100 crates moved

 

for 100 crates moved the shortest possible trade run yields an advantage to the polar express in every variable except total time spent in warp. the longer the run the more in tilts in favor of the polar express

Once you factor in any level of turbo warp the polar express gains a crate per hour advantage over the ursa 9. ANY LEVEL

 

4 runs any distance (4K +tw) speed = 5 runs at any distance divided by (5K+tw) speed.

4(100K)/ (4+.001)= 5(100K)/(5+001)  the math for 100K distance and +1 turbo warp

 

 

99.975 seconds in warp VS 99.98 seconds for the same amount of cargo

 

1.5K warp  turbo warp (a unicorn and a NOS device)

4(100K)/ (4+1.5) = 5(100K)/(5+1.5)

72.72= 76 

72 seconds vs 76 seconds for the same amount of cargo

 

 

The more turbo warp you have the more it leans in favor of the polar express

After having analyzed the math... the URSA gains an advantage in the following conditions.

1 you aren't doing a trade run

2 you are doing 4 or less runs and only have time for exactly the number of runs you are doing with the ursa 9. You can not take the extra time to finish the runs with the polar express at a slower speed.

 

If number 2 sounds confusing it's basically this;

 

1 run of ursa > 0 runs of Polar express (40 crates vs 0 crates)

2 runs of ursa >1 run of polar express (80 Vs 50 crates)

3 runs of ursa > 2 runs of polar express (120 crates vs 100 crates)

4 runs of ursa >3 runs of polar express (note this is very close to the same amount of cargo. 160 crates vs 150 crates and very close to the same time) 

 

However at 5 runs of ursa 4 runs of polar express is better.
