(PS4) I spent the last week working towards completing the automated mass production protocol, probably about 6+ hours a day, only turning off the system by setting it to "rest" instead of quitting and turning off because the previous week I had lost about 100 compound after quitting and loading up the next day. I restarted the quest in earnest, and worked throughout the week to mine all the aluminum, copper, and compound for the missions, as well as 4 canisters worth of astronium. I finished it all last night, and sent off 50 astronium, received nothing, then sent off another 50 astronium to get materials I already have the capacity to craft. I quit out completely because i had finished the missions, and by then the game session had been running for a few days straight. Loaded up this afternoon and my progress has been reset to zero.
