Ingots from stone in survival kit

Ingots from stone in survival kit needs increasing, it took 3 personal inventory loads of stone, on a 3x3x3 server (ZinuxGamer) to get enough girders to build the wind turbine, i think this is a little too grindy, either the SKit needs a small efficiency boost, or the rates of ingots from stone need a small boost, maybe just the iron content from stone...

I'm not entirely sure i agree with you on this, 3 inventories wouldn't really be considered a grind, plus the other method i used was to take down what was there and build a drilling ship with an inbuilt survival kit. super effective. there is a small cargo on the drop pod, this could have a few resources to help us get started.

that was just for the 24 girders that i did not have from trimming the starter pod and collecting the drop containers...

I personally see the lack of efficiency of the SKit encouragement to engineer better ways of getting stone (ie station quarry miners, drilling ships) or encouragement to quickly move on to better resource collection. I build I small station quarry miner and collected around 800k kg of stone very quickly. This allowed basically every one on the server to make a ship and a rover from the resources gathered.

Absolutely, the name of the game is all about that. I hope to see features like this that force me to do some engineering/problem solving rather than immediately building the biggest miner i can, closely followed by a mega-ship in survival servers.
