Why is the credit gained for running the N-Body Simulation so miserly? It uses two CPUs on my machine and runs for about 2 hours (elapsed time) and yet the credit gained is considerably less than processes running for a shorter time on only one CPU.

Even if this topic is 6 years old the N-Body-Simulation is already to low in credit gain.

My task 603453015 (Separation v1.46) was running 3.653 seconds on the cpu and i got 227 credit points
My task 604764464 (N-Body Simulation V1.76) was running 88.7555 seconds on the cpu and i got 1.198 credit points

More than twenty times computing power and only five times of the credits... This difference is too much

So stop doing the cpu tasks from here

You can't buy anything with these credits, so why do you care how many you get?
