As prideful as it may seem, this is more of a notification to any dev’s (with an invite for public commentary) which may be surfing for bugs than it is a question. Because CCP is finally looking to address the rampant war spam in highsec (wars are fine, but … ohmahgawd it was out of control) I’m investigating coming back to EVE after being gone for a couple years. I’ve been looking through the updated mechanics, state of the market, and etc … and I’ve found that the Upwell station rigs don’t seem to be applying their bonus to ore/ice refinement rates in highsec (possibly elsewhere as well, but i’m just cruising around and checking things out).
I’ve checked the math twice, and made sure I didn’t make any typos, but the breakdown clearly shows there’s a bug:
Docked at an Athanor (2% role bonus to refining), my Alpha clone is capped at Level 3 Reprocessing (9% bonus), and I have the RX-804 reprocessing implant (4% bonus). Now, multiplying all that together against the base refinement rate of 50% generates a refinement rate of 57.8136% (50 ice generates 11,967 isotopes), and that’s exactly what I’m receiving in this Athanor even though my ship scanner shows it has the T2 refinement rig (3% bonus) which should bump the total rate up to 59.5480% (50 ice should generate 12,326 isotopes).
So … can we get a bug hunter dev on this? The last time I was here, the first batch of Citadels had a bug where rig bonuses wouldn’t get applied until somebody took control of the station for a moment at least once per day after downtime. It can’t be the same bug … can it? Does the bug mean I need to have a corporate office before the rig bonuses apply in any particular station right now? Is it a thing with alpha clones, and maybe that’s how it’s survived under the radar for so long?
Can I get some commentary from other players who are finding the same thing? Bug report submitted in tandem with a link to this thread so bug hunters can get additional input, if any.
