Question 1: Why does Table 4. Supcapital Ships Blueprint Changes have no T2 ships other than the Exhumers and Expedition Frigates?
Question 2: Why is the Scorpion—and only the Scorpion—less material-intensive to build than literally all other T1 Battleships?
Question 2a: Why is the Scorpion less trit/iso-intensive now than the Megathron, when it has been more trit/iso-intensive?
Question 2b: Why are 2 cruisers from each empire (Arb/Aug, Blackbird/Osprey, Celestis/Exeq) at the lower material cost… except the Minimatar (only the Scythe, not the Bellicose, which is analogous to the Arb/BB/Celestis)?
Question 3: Why is Table 2: New Components, Reactions, & Blueprints so terribly organized? Just make columns D → [whatever] be their own PI inputs, and don’t be afraid to include an assload of greyed-out 0s. It works just fine, and it’s a lot easier to read and keep track of than this terrible table. Holy Carp.
We’ll start with those.
