So I was having a chat with an alliance member after getting a capital rig bpc from a relic site during my research to find out if it was worth producing or not and the answer to that was, unfortunately not. This problem was compounded by the fact that BPC’s can’t be researched. He said that unless they’re researched, it’s generally not profitable to produce them which leaves anyone who gets these BPC’s with something that can’t be easily sold or produced.
So I have a possible solution to ensure there’s a chance of it being profitable to run, whether it’s the explorer or someone else without it effecting the economy too much. Simply have relic/data BPCs drop with a random research value (with the exception of implant bpcs, etc). This will negate the need to allow research on all BPCs and thus won’t adversely effect the market.
