Wow.. this is gonna affect the smaller alliance a lot more then the ones i think that CCP wants to affect by this change.

This change is not to buff the ice market btw.. this is a change to nerf the power projection in EVE and CCP is to coward to say out laud so they push it into the industry changes P

Why not work with the underlying reason for the power projection problem instead off taking the easy way out and change a number in a table? The bigger alliances will adapt and this will have no change in the way we operate while the smaller alliance will get a hard time.

We're going to go ahead and use Resgo's suggestion. Instead of the increase in fuel bay size we will decrease the volume of isotopes by 1/3. OP updated.

Thinking on this, there's one outlier -- jump bridges. You may want to go forward with actually increasing the bay size on this, as messing with the volume of LO3 has some hilarious knockbacks related to cynos that you probably don't want. (Non-expanded interceptor cynos, anyone?)


isotopes aren't liquid ozone you dumb GOON

Uh, yeah, but he said they aren't increasing bay sizes any more. I'm saying still do it for the Jump Bridge.

Gosh.


how should i know how jump bridges work u took our fuckin sov

Did not. LAWN did.

I'm still sore about that too -- they nationalized a bunch of moons I was mining in that renter pocket under your noses. Sad

please current m3 to updated m3 in increments 500m3 to the size of a titan fleet hanger of 100,000 m3 pls

Hello everyone!

In the upcoming Summer release we are making a lot of changes that we expect will impact player behavior surrounding manufacturing, mining and starbase use. We see an opportunity here to make some adjustments to the way that Jump Drives consume their isotope fuel that will hit a few birds with one stone.

The goals of this change are:
  • Stimulate the isotope (and therefore ice) market to help cushion any drop in demand from players using smaller starbases after the science and industry slot changes.
  • Help encourage cost competitiveness for local resource gathering in nullsec.
  • Although we don't expect this change to significantly impact behavior around jump drive power projection, it should at least provide a small incentive change through higher costs for moving huge capital fleets often.

The plan for this release is to start with a 50% increase in the fuel cost of all jump drives and jump portals, and adjust further if necessary once we see the results. This change applies both the the base consumption of ship based jump drives, as well as the isotope consumption per kg of mass on all jump bridges and portals.

To compensate for the extra isotopes that ships will need to carry, the volume of all four isotopes will be reduced by 1/3, to 0.1m3. Thanks to Resgo for some excellent feedback.


For reference, this will increase the cost of running a max skilled Rhea from Jita to RIT-A7 (jump drive transit the whole way) from ~50m isk to ~75m isk.


where are the tables?!?

Anyways

Please go forward with increasing the bay size on jump bridge modules, given that liquid ozone isn't a tope (poor reading comprehension abounds here but I figure I oughta be explicit) and usage is increasing.

He really is the dumbest, isn't he? I haven't seen a single post by Fozzie that was well-thought out, nor a change that really made sense. The game is just as imbalanced prior to his hiring, in some ways, moreso.

This is such a stupid change. "We'd like to spur null sec industry! Oh, by the way, now your JF runs cost 50% so you can't import materials as cheaply to do that null-sec industry!" That's really smart, given that the main limitation on any null region is that you only have access to a limited amount of moon material natively. To think that isotope prices will go DOWN because "more people will be mining ice" is also pretty dunderheaded. Take an economics class sometime.

******* intelligent. The last MMO I played extensively was ruined when the developer went cheap-o and hired "devs" who could do nothing but change numbers. CCP has made the same mistake with this clown. All he can do is randomly change numbers, he can't develop actual content. Wouldn't be so bad if he had any sort of long-term vision of the kinds of unintended consequences his inept additions to the game actually cause.

You can just titan bridge your jf, its half the cost of jumping it.
