So I can only send out 1-2 companions - have too wait and hour - 'maybe' get what I needed and then send them out again. So I can craft 1 item in a 3 hour play period.

Having the same issue with Underworld Trading. I get 1 moderate metals mission for 49-50 2 or 3 abundant to rich fabric missions or 2 to 3 rich companion gift missions. It's stupid. Why am I getting fabric missions at all? I don't use the damn stuff and it doesn't sell worth a damn. Why all the damn companion gift missions? Not like I need the stuff, they are all maxed out. Then to top it off, all I get a Armormech and Synthweaving schematics. Go to the GTN and nothing for Cybertech other then ship mods and speeder bikes. ***! Who came up with this dumb *** resource gathering formula?

Crafting in this game needs a major overhaul. Was poorly thought out and is utterly useless at the end of the day. You can buy the same items or better from vendors and don't have to go to all the bother of doing the leg work.

Purples are a joke and imo exist for the truly obcessive. I get my blue schematic and I'm done. Why waste the time and resources for schematics that will be out of date in a few levels. Purples only make since for lvl 50 gear. And the whole redoubt, overkill critical thing annoys me too. Tank armor should only produce redoubt. DPS armor should onlt produce overkill and critical. And the amount of purple varients... jesus. The chance of you getting what you actually want are low.
I didn't realize you had to keep coming back to the trainer to learn new schematics. I remember having a full armour set of purple, craftable low level stuff at one point.

You can't make up stuff like that.
