When you complete a mission in the ME3: Datapad app, how does it calculate your new total? Is the percentage award added to the old total for a new overall readiness percentage?

For example, if I have 60% readiness in a sector, and I complete a mission that gives 1.3% readiness, will my new readiness rating in that sector be 61.3%?

Yes, when you complete a mission in a sector, the new readiness percentage is the previous readiness percentage plus the readiness value for that mission.

  • Thanks. I'm trying to calculate approximately how long it should take me to obtain 100% readiness in each sector using only the Datapad app. Minus any readiness decay, that is. I haven't yet plotted the rate of decay into my formula. Or the several minutes it seems to take to complete any action with this slow, slow app.

  • Do you have all of the upgrades? That can affect the calculations. Mar 26, 2012 at 21:52
  • Indeed I do. Except for the Galactic Command Coordination. That's just useless. According to my calculations, if a player stays on top of things and keeps his fleets deployed even most of the time, he'll reach 100% readiness way before he reaches 500,000.

  • There's always getting back to 100% for a second playthrough (like I will probably do eventually) Mar 26, 2012 at 22:14
  • That's a fair point. In that case, it would be worth it to keep going for the Galactic Command Coordination bonuses. Even despite the apps flaws.
