o7 Spacebros,

Sorry if this is not in the right board, I didn't see a general help board or anything of that nature...

SO... I am a bit bewildered here. I just recently started doing some Industry stuff (been playing Eve about 6 months now), and I see in my skills "Drug Manufacturing". So I train it to level 3. I go to google and try to start doing some research. Literally EVERY resource I found (guides, videos, forum posts, etc.) about 'booster production' is dated 2010 or earlier. There is ZERO current information on this topic. The general consensus in the Help chat channel seems to be that booster production is no longer possible, because there are no blueprints, OR because the mechanic for producing boosters has been altogether removed from the game.

When I first started Eve and I was running Agent Missions, I vaguely remember reading about booster production resources and blueprints coming from Gas Cloud anomalies during the Exploration tutorial missions. In addition, if the ability to produce Boosters had been removed from the game, would they not have also removed the 'Drug Manufacturing' skill?

Someone help me out here; can I produce Boosters or not? If so, where do I find BPOs/BPCs and the resources to produce them? Better yet, is there a link someone can provide with some up-to-date information on this topic? Like I said, I have tried to do as much research as I can, and I am coming up completely empty handed.

Thanks in advance for any information!
Fly Safe.

Yes you can produce boosters. Its a pain in the a*^se at the moment but may get better with the new reactor thingamebobs. The Prospect makes gas harvesting easy. You can get the BPCs from scanning down the relevant combat sites.

This is the best guide I've seen: https://staceystarwolf.wordpress.com/2014/03/05/action-report-6-producing-combat-boosters/

The only major change since then is that you can transport them in high sec.

Booster production hasn't changed in many years, those guides are likely still valid.
