Some months ago you responded to a post I made regarding the rate of mining saltpeter here: http://vboards.stratics.com/1952627-post332.html In it, you state "It can be mined at a rate of 1,000 units or more per hour in a dungeon, with a mediocre luck suit and GM mining skill." I just spent 4 hours on my GM elf miner wearing a 2065 luck suit and I got 58 saltpeter from one huge niter deposit. That's it. One deposit in four solid hours that yielded 58 saltpeter. The yield of saltpeter has been going lower and lower as time goes on. Today, it is the lowest it's ever been. For the record, I have never been able to mine saltpeter anywhere close to 1000 or more units per hour. If the irrational "commodity trader" algorithm cannot be removed, can the rate niter deposits spawn be addressed?
