I’m currently in step two of my PI output plans. Nanite Paste eventually, wheee! As I’m currently a HighSec Scrub the frustrating part is no matter how well I train up Customs Code Expertise (maxed now) POCO taxes get painful when I have to rearrange to get all the PI products to the same planet for further along results. I’d go through the trouble of trying to contact the POCO owners about negotiating a lower %, but I’m watching who owns which ones connected to the planets I’m operating from change more often than they used to. Why put out the effort only to have to re-negotiate with yet another new owner? Le sigh.
As for the UI setup for PI, I’m thinking someone who has a serious crush on micro-managing had their fingers in the coding! The results can be rather profitable (even in HighSec) but the lack of intuitiveness gets obvious at times. I’m also glad I’m not flying ships with fatigue cooldowns, the wait for expedited transferring annoys me already. To argue with both would likely be a dealbreaker.
