Outpost Construction - Now Useless?

I have a character with Outpost Construction 5, a level 16 skill. With the release of Citadel, it appears there's effectively no function to having this skill trained past level 1 anymore.

Was there a plan for revamping the skill in any way? Or should I consider this sunk?

The skill allows you to build Citadels and Citalle Modules at lvl 1, so it's going to stay.

I remember CCP saying in a devblog that the skill is going to be repurposed since further levels are not useful for Structures for now but I don't remember exactly where

Ya, I wouldn't wait on CCP follow-up.

Skill Extractor is your solution.

Outpost Construction V is still required for building (or feeding the egg, if you prefer) "advanced outpost" upgrades. Getting to this level would only have been useful if you were in a nullsec alliance that builds and upgrades outposts.

Outposts can still be constructed as it stands.
