Some recommended build queues for overnight or extended-away periods when you are out of game for about 8-9 hours.
For about 80k of each resource at the end of the day, here's a good build to wake up to.
CEO harassing you to add defense to the Mining Complexes? This handy build queue will let you build between 14 and 19k DP by the time you wake up.
Fighting isn't cheap, but it shouldn't be impossible to keep up the fight if you chip away at it every day. This 9 hour queue will net you great OP for raiding the following morning. If you do this every day, you can have as much as 140k at the end of the week. (L20 contracts, does not factor other boosts).
This is where S&D players can help mitigate interest and save some of those nice Mohawks and Za'ams instead of pumping them back into the bank. This queue focuses on the best resources produced in a 9h 25m timeframe overnight.
With any production queue don't forget to bunker your troops when you wake up. Production for the balanced queue is suggested that you do the offensive units LAST, in the event you are raided mid-sleep, the more expensive offensive units aren't on the base until later in the queue.
This is not a perfect, BEST in slot chart. These are suggested queues for players who don't know what they should/could make during downtime to maximize efficiency of time.
What can improve? Putting training into the units that you queue a lot (IE: S&D Offensive Queue) pays off over time. 12% may not seem like much, but over the course of a week or more, really adds up.
Leveling your contracts to L20, Running Executive Status and Equipment will boost OP/DP outcomes, as well as any equipment that may mitigate cost and/or production times are always encouraged.
