Output Rowset Columns

Name Type Description
agentID int The agent ID number.
skillTypeID int The skill used for the research, not the typeID of the core received.
researchStartDate date string The date the character began the current research with the agent at the current pointsPerDay. Each change in pointsPerDay will update researchStartDate as well.
pointsPerDay decimal The number of points generated per day.
remainderPoints float The number of points remaining since last datacore purchase and/or pointsPerDay update. Mission RP is also added to this value.


Notice that remainderPoints will be a negative number if you've bought datacores from agent.

Formula for finding current RP you have is: currentPoints = remainderPoints + pointsPerDay * <Difference between now and startdate>
