Will you ever get round to fixing Relic and Data sites in C4s?

It has been well documented now for at least 12 months if not more. CCP once again seems pretty active with developing eve again. Would it be too much to ask when the C4 relic and Data sites are going to be fixed?

As you are by now well aware, they never spawn anything other than the initial NPC wave.

Is this on your Radar? Do you have a timeframe for sorting it out? Can i provide any Data to help the problem?

In before "Legacy code linked with POS mechanics is causing c4 relic and Data sites to not function correctly"Lol

Its like any other wormhole but it has freckles and needs to stay out of the sun. Questionable parentage

At this point, we'll be better of storming into CCP offices and demanding fixes at gun point than posting about it on the forums. Seriously, Corbexx is already on it. Just waiting on CCP to actually get it done.

It's not never, but C4 data/relic additional wave spawns are definitely broken, or at least temperamental. The first two times I did the sites I got the spawn, the third and fourth I didn't.

One thing I can confirm is the sites often have very broken grids - moving away from the warp in with one ship I would lose the site and other ships after flying less than 100km away. So it's possible some "no spawn" events are really spawns happening slightly offgrid.

We once went over 200km in 6 directions without finding a spawn, so I'm inclined to think it's either a spawn glitch or a very interesting feature whereby they spawn a couple grids away, creating niche content in tracking them down

Also, it's two of the four sites with problems, right?

C4 "working as intended" data/relic sites: Unsecured Frontier Trinary Hub and Forgotten Frontier Evacuation Center work fine, spawning one wave after the other without any problem.

C4 likely broken data/relic sites: Unsecured Frontier Digital Nexus and Forgotten Frontier Conversion Module, where no waves after the first ever spawn (if they DO spawn, it appears to be after an attempt to hack/analyze a can - in my experience, upon failure)

It's been a while, but this looks about right on both the site types and hack attempts. Someone get corbexx a new bull whip!

CCP's tools for doing PvE stuff is terrible so they're rewriting them first.

Maybe Corbexx can ask CCP to give an update on how far along that is and a maybe timeframe on when PvE fixups will start.
