I’m sure that by now, most of you have already read the Dev blog. And if you didn’t you just don’t care or didn’t know there was a new one out there.
If it’s the latter, here’s a link for you so you can read up on it.
Reading the Dev blogs for the upcoming summer changes are making me gleeful, Industry is getting a work over and the things they showed us are already looking good. Or at least not too bad.
I’m not that good with numbers, and I couldn’t make heads nor tails about the reprocessing changes, but that’s because I don’t use reprocessing, at all. I have a POS, I invent stuff and I manufacture them. If I’m lucky I even get them sold. That’s about all I do industry wise.
Being an inventor means copying, a lot of copying. So I can tell you that I had somewhat of a smile on my face when I read said change in copying, making it last a tiny bit less long as it does today.
The rest of the changes had me smiling too, but I don’t know why yet, I just think it’s because of the fact that there’s probably going to be some other good stuff incoming, or at least I hope so.
I can’t help but wonder what all of the factory changes will bring about though. No more waiting in line to do something in a station, no more standings needed to put up a POS. What exactly does this mean for the current POS owners? Will they have more people coming over to fight them, declaring wars in order to kick them out of their POS, will the fuel suddenly rise in price, or will it just be a little skirmish for a few weeks like the POCOS and then be quiet(ish) again?
Part of me is even wondering whether the station changes mean that I might be able to shut down my POS and do everything through a station.
Due to the fact that I’ve been slacking in the past few months I don’t use all the slots I can use, I pay for my fuel and I put some work in from time to time, but my POS is not working at 100% capacity.
"Should I stock up on you?"
Maybe the upcoming change will allow me to drop it and save a few hundred million ISK in fuel each month.
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what the next dev blogs say.
Stay tuned o7
