Recently I bought 30 units of dairy products in one hi-sec system and sold them for a tiny profit in another hi-sec system. I think it would be nice if players could produce farm products in hydroponic facilities and sell them. Maybe even process them to add value and then sell them.
The descriptions for farm and food products say they are in “high demand,” but I never see anything that is in high demand. Not frozen seeds, or wheat, or tobacco, or dairy. At least not in hi-sec. I never venture into systems of less than 0.5, so maybe it’s different there.
I don’t care if the profit margin is tiny, I would really like to see more opportunities in food products. I’m an alpha and have fun producing and selling frigates armor and missiles, but it would be nice to have other things to do as well. There’s not much reason to get a paid account. Most of the game seems to be oriented toward fighting, ganking, griefing.
I don’t expect this idea to ever be implemented… Just a thought on a cold, gray winter day.
