@orlet said in Workflow tips and prioritization for new players?:
@eduter I only have 12 rooms, and 11 out of those are at RCL8, so effectively capped at 15e/tick. There's no much way to get past that outside of boosting, and I don't boost RCL8 rooms, it's too expensive.
33 of my rooms are RCL 8 and I don't use boosting either, I just transfer energy to an RCL 6-7 room. I get an average of 16 CP/ tick / room.
But compare the energy harvested numbers, and how much I spend on repairs.
You're using more rooms than I am and harvesting more energy than me and yet, you only get around 1/3 of the control points I get. From my perspective (from how I decided to play Screeps), that's just inefficient. But we're clearly playing in very different ways and with different goals.
My point was only that, for someone creating a fully automated bot, starting from scratch, I wouldn't recommend prioritizing remote mining. They may complicate things and you can do well without them for a long time. Harvesting and hauling is trivial, but automating the defense of remotes and, more specifically, the decision of when to give up on a remote, is a complex problem. The best fully automated bots I've seen, struggle with that.
