Greetings fellow capsuleers,

I hope this is the right forum for this post but I have a suggestion to rewrite the description of the Science -> Research skill.

How do I come up with something this trivial? Because it seriously confused me What?.

While looking for the skills I needed to train to increase blueprint efficiencies, i.e. ME/TE, Metallurgy is easy to find in the character sheet, but Research is worded so awkwardly that it was (at least to me) not obvious that it increases TE research speeds.

The industry window cleared that up but I still think that rewriting Research would help.

Right now it reads:


Skill at researching more efficient production methods. 5% bonus to blueprint manufacturing time research per skill level.

In comparison, the "ME version" of this reads :


Advanced knowledge of mineral compositions. 5% Bonus (not bonus?) to material efficiency research speed per skill level.

I propose to use the Metallurgy structure on Research, for example like this:

Skill at researching more efficient production methods. 5% bonus to time efficiency research per skill level.
