Are there no more Rich or Bountiful 49-50 missions? I haven't seen any in a couple of days iirc.

Holy cow. OP, your spreadsheet was amazing. I tested it out for the past 2 hours and actually determined something. The credit per minute ratio is MUCH higher on the 33-40 missions than the 50 missions. Most of the cases I get from that lower set contain 1k or more and I generally get a lot more than what I paid for the mission, and they don't fail as often.

In just 1 hour, I made 50k-ish off of just those missions alone with no questing or anything.

Is it just me or does Automated Saboteurs not exist for Republic characters? I've been slicing all day and haven't seen it. Granted I'm making some decent cash. But that mission doesn't exist to me. Is there a certain way to get it or is random just random and I'm rolling a 1 on the d20?

It's too bad there is so much garbage and erroneous information in the replies to the OP's masterful analysis.

I am very irritated right now, that people are perpetuating the myth that slicing is the only way to make money in this game. One person even went so far as to say that the only people who can afford to buy on the GTN are slicers. I've made maybe 100k in the past 3 or 4 days from selling underworld mats and crafted synthweaving items. Underworld, for example, can give you 10000 credits worth of mats for a 1000 credit mission.

Absorb the OP's post and his data, and /ignore the rest of this ridiculousness.

Arranged Accidents is the Republic version of The Automated Saboteur. The discrepancy between the average credits received is likely do to sample size.

I have updated the OP to include a few notes from the discussion in the thread.

The way I use this spreadsheet is to memorize the top 6 missions (here for empire side) and look for those. you can usually find one of these for each crew member to do. For maximum credits per minute, the best 6 missions are from most profitable to less profitable (according to the spreadsheet):

The automated saboteur: 2398 1742 1194 3056 1650
Prince of fools: 1055 2408 2280 2836
Careful what you read: 4036 3901 2438 2695
Pointing Fingers: 3434 3591 2895
The fly on the wall: 5340 3957
Taking back control:

This list has some extra information for the spreadsheet too. Each mission on this list realizes more than 100 credits per minute at full affection, which results in more than 30k per hour with 5 companions crafting. It will be more if you've got a companion with bonus to slicing. Also, you'll get a lot of lower level mission discoveries - I've got so many that I'm having to vendor them because the GTN doesn't allow more than 50 auctions at a time.

A tip if you don't have the missions available you want: Relog and the available missions are randomized again (of course only those missions, that other companions are not already doing)
