Greeting Intrepid Industrialists,

As of this week the Engineering complexes and the Industry service modules have been made available on the Singularity markets! For full information on these features, please see the dev blog, found here. We'd highly appreciate it if anyone interested in using these new structures and their functionality please go try them out on Singularity, let us know what you think and submit bug reports for any problems that occur.

NEW 26th Oct - Asset searching is now available in Citadels and Engineering Complexes! Please test this out and give us some feedback, thanks!

Things still to be implemented

  • The new Industrial rigs are not yet finalized (So are not seeded yet)
  • The service modules do not have descriptions and are missing their final attributes
  • Bonuses provided by the structure hulls are not implemented


Known Issues

  • Capital Shipyard service module can be used in high sec
  • Some docking restrictions are incorrect


We'll amend these lists as development comes to a close and issues are fixed/new issues are found.

Thanks in advance for your support.

Anyway i can try out anchoring the Large EC without having the skills to pilot a freighter?
Its really annoying that you give 1 of them 8000 m3 space packaged and the other 2 80 000 + m3 or so, its like impossible to transport them to a testing site.

the packaged spaces are incorrect and will be fixed

Using an Azbel EC anchored in nulsec with reprocessing service and a Large Ore reprocessing rig I, the base refine rate seems to be more like 58% rather than the expected 56% after accounting for skills and implants.

Will ECs have a higher base reprocessing rate than Citadels, does the 25% bonus to industrial rig effects include reprocessing service rigs, or is this a bug?

The base in Citadel/Complex in Null-Sec with T1 Rigs is 58% base without Skills. 56% is in Low-Sec and 54% in High-Sec.

Here an example:

Complex and Citadel will have the same % in Reprocessing and the Mining Platform will be the ones with better %

This might sound neat in concept, but I sincerely hope it never happens. This is a HUGE security vulnerability for those in nullsec, w-space, and lowsec, and doesn't even make a whole lot of sense, given that you build a ship in a shipyard, not sticking out through the side.

According to one of the art devs on Slack, there are plans for the Sotiyo to show the next 6 supercapital build jobs in progress externally in space. If you look at the EC dev blog you can see a sneak peak of this as the very last image. No other ship production jobs will show; only supercaps as this is meant to encourage huge fights.

To be clear, external display of supercap construction is a potential future feature that we can't 100% promise at this time. It definitely won't be in the initial Ascension launch.

Do you also have potential future plans to externally display construction of a big EC Q&A post with answers on the Sotiyo?

Are the fuel blocks/hr the final numbers?

How is the Vulnerability times decided?
As Citadels have a slightly OP mix of short times and decent defensive capabilities. Whereas Engineering Complexes have a layer of duct tape and a prayer for Vulnerability times and defensive capabilities.

Yup, and that will come sooner than the external supercap display. Smile

That is exactly what I am seeing, which is why I'm posting. There is nothing in the Engineering Complex devblog about reprocessing rates. So I would assume the base reprocessing rate in an EC is 50%, which would be adjusted up to 56% with the large T1 rig. But we're getting 58%. The discrepancy can be accounted for if the base rate is 52%. But I see nothing to support that. So I'm asking for some clarification.

You're painfully confused about something. Structures ALL have a base rate of 50%. This is then increased to 52% or 54% for a T1 and T2 rig, respectively. That value is then further modified by the sec value.

A T1 rig gives a base of 52% no matter what structure you plug it into. 52 * 1.12 = 58.24%. Precisely correct.

Neither ECs nor citadels are actually bonused for reprocessing, so should have the exact same values.

And there we have it. ty for explaining that. I was going off of the devblogs and could not find any better info. Some better choices in google search keywords finally gave me this: https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=478855

Fozzie, I reply here as well as in the reaction thread, as you have been looking at this thread recently, and I find your most recent post more relevant to this point:

With the scheduled release a mere two weeks away, and that post where you said a Q&A post was coming was two weeks ago, there are numerous very concerned industrialists. More than half of the window between the dev blog and scheduled release has passed. Having sufficient testing time to ensure a smooth release, as well as adequate feedback time to make sure either the players like what they are getting, or at least understand why the less popular changes are being made, is essential.

I fear that this announcement is intended to be made at Eve Vegas, which, while a high profile Eve event, will leave either one week for testing, which is not good for the players and is far too little time to truly test processes as involved as industry in Eve, or will result in the delay of a highly publicized and anticipated feature, which would not be ideal for CCP.

Also, the upper undocking port from the Azbel is working properly. =)
