Consider this fair warning:
I come from Lowca where we had the same problem. After the first time the devs manually shifted the resources (it had been over a month since the game went live), a second shift happened about 18 hours later. From that point on, the resources were stuck until we finally got the devs' attention and they performed a 2nd manual shift. Guess what? Another shift happened about 18 hours after the 2nd manual shift. From that point on everything has been working as intended, but several required resources for upper-level weapons were missed in that first 18 hour shift and didn't reappear until almost a month later after we finally got the devs attention for the 2nd manual shift.
Be advised that this similar situation unfolded for Radiant as well (another server affected by this broken shifting process). Miners need to play it by ear as soon as the resources shift and not load up their harvesters with a ton of maintenance. Also, hoarde the resources like polonium iron until you can confirm that the resources aren't going to shift again within a 24 hour period.
Good luck, Shadowfire. Lowca knows all about what you guys are going through.
