A year ago we made a Significant Update to Industry, where many higher end ships saw new materials added to their build components. These materials helped to create additional value for various activities in New Eden and gave us the ability to more finely tune manufacturing costs when necessary. Since that time we’ve been continuously monitoring how the ecosystem has adjusted and, with this update, we’re tuning the build material costs of these ships to bring them down after a period of elevated prices.
The goals of these changes are:
Reduce low level PI demand
Reduce Faction and Pirate ship manufacturing costs
Greatly reduce Dreadnaught manufacturing costs
Reduce other capital and supercapital ship manufacturing costs
Reduce logistics requirements for capital and supercapital ships
This post is a call for feedback! The numbers in this spreadsheet are a starting point and are not final - changes will be made over the next couple weeks as we head towards release based on the feedback you provide. Please let us know your thoughts on the values here, how you think they will impact your manufacturing costs and what could be shifted to bring ships in line with your price expectations.
Also for feedback purpose:
Playing since 2004 neverstopped playing indy and that applies even to when we had to mine in BS back in the days.
Was able to by my self pop out from mining to full fit T2 near 10 dreads a week and the only time i literally gave up on indy was after the indy thrown into trash can update CCP made.
Yet will give it a look and i hope the new prod chain is reasonnable, cause nothing is more enjoyable then a counter dreadbomb.
Thx mate for fast update of the link
Ps: It’s not a sand box anymore but it’s the game that fits the best my gameplay style, plus 15+ year of CCP shenanigans gets you used to it.
Interesting levels of component reductions there. Good to see that capital production should finally become viable again.
Could you please make these spreadsheets available on Office Online or Google Sheets? This would make so much easier to share this information and check it without having to download a humongous file first.
Would have also been nice if you had included the old values so that one can actually compare the changes in the file.
