Hallo,
Is there any skill ingame, that reduces the CPU i need to fit in the Stip miners ?
Example:
Thye uses 60 CPU, any way i can reduce this number by training any skill?

TY.

Don't think so, but by training mining upgrades, you can decrease the cpu penalty on the strips that you get by fitting an MLU.

If you're referring to Strip Miners, they're only supposed to be fit on mining barges and Exhumners, and have nothing to do with Mining Laser Upgrade units ()or MLUs().

If you look at the info panel on any barge or exhumer, you'll see that one of the ship bonuses is "99% reduction in CPU needs for all Strip Miner midules".

Standard Mining lasers can be fit on anything EXCEPT mining barges/Exhumers (no turret slots).

Minimg Laser Upgrade units can be fit on any ship, and use a decent amount of CPU/powergrid to give you better yield. You need EXCELLENT skills to use 'em, however as what they take up is pretty significant.

Maybe i'm just reading this part incorrectly, because MLU's do impact the yield and cpu usage of strip miners, increasing both.

Saddly, not that I have found.

As has been pointed out, the best you'll be able to do is train up a skill that lets you decrease the cost of using a MLU. You can also train up your general CPU skills and look into CPU implants (which is how I fit a MLU+Cargo Expander on a retriever)

AFAIK, MLU's works as intended - "Mining Laser Upgrades give a 5% bonus to your yield per module, but their effect must be exponentially calculated instead of stacked." (from Haladas Miners Guide) - not CPU usage.
