I love PI.
But I dont like that there is nothing like final product, you can just produce stuff that is needed for other stuff.
So what about to add some stuff to PI that makes PI pilots more independent?

Its strange that in so many worlds of bilionzilion people thru universe, there is no option how to make food.

So how to add some farms etc produce plants to PI and make food.
The food you can use for PI final product as:

A:SPECIAL FOOD:(I saw something like Quafe energy drink, so something like that)
Works as boosters/drugs, but weaker and legal in hi-sec.

B:or use it for creation newly added TEAMS.

Also maybe you can just sell the ordinary food to local markets to npc or something.

What do you think guys?

I'm quite fascinated by the title. It suggests a patenting of food as an intellectual property. I for one hope never to have to pay royalties to make a cheeseburger.

Ok, poking fun at the title aside....

Many people would agree with you as far as creating more booster type consumables go. But if they are added, I would guess that instead of PI, they would be added to the currently underdeveloped gas harvesting mechanic. After all, CCP gave newbies this awesome venture with gas bonuses, but then there are no useful gas sources in highsec.

So +1/-1. I'm always up for more combat consumables, but I'd rather not have them come from PI.

Wish I can fly Fenrir full of wheat for another use, undocking from planet, sound cool and logic :-)

I'm guessing the OP has never built a POS

I thought it was a way to get pizza delivered to my door via IP geolocation. Alas, my hopes were in vain.

Isnt that a thing in WOW or is that one of those "In the next patch" joke features?
