Okay, so based on a bit of quick research i’d need these rigs to get the best boost to what i’m wanting to do.
Adv Large Ship
Basic Capital Component (i’m guessing this is all the ship components, non-“capitol” like armor plates, shield emitters, thrusters ect? Or do they fall under the “advanced components” list?)
Equipment (does this bonus T2 modules, or just T1?)
Advanced Component (Depending on if the above does T2 modules)
I’ve looked into the research ones, but they are mostly time reductions…and since i can’t play the game 23/7 it matters not that i’ll save minutes (or hours) if i’ll be at work not able to do anything about starting the next job anyways until after i get home. Yes they have a 10% “cost” reduction…but that can’t really effect the total of 2 items needed for the job, and if its only 10% off the job cost…well, 20k isk compared to saving potentially 100M on ship materials…now maybe if researching ME10 on a capital BPO that might come in handy…but i just don’t see it paying off well for shorter invention/copy jobs…
I’m still not a fan of the cost index, b/c it doesn’t really matter if you pick a low system, after a week or two of using all my lines that index is now higher than the nearby systems (atleast thats how it used to work). But whatever, its the system CCP has decided to burden us with…(glad they finally put it someplace you can easily find though)
But thanks for the info, that will maybe help narrow it down some.
And where are “ship components” in that hover-pop-up list? What category are they under?
