Top is existing system on Tranq with Thukker Array (POS) and bottom is with the Thukker rigs in a lowsec EC.

15% bonus from Thukker Array, 8% bonus from EC/Thukker Rig. That 7% loss of bonus going to the rig adds up to approximately a 600mil isk increase in cost to build a Jump Freighter. That's almost the entire profit margin of building a JF from goo/minerals to JF (building the T1 components, then the t1 hull, then the t2 components from goo, then the JF itself). Add in the overhead of jump fuel, EC fuel, risk, etc...

So this change alone will end lowsec industry for capital production and there might as well not even be a Thukker Rig in the first place if the 3.7% bonus is all we get. Can CCP please reconsider what they are doing here? The math isnt that hard.

I think CCP is trying to shift to the new Industrial system slowly and test it's affect on the economy so i presume later they will change those ME bonus to meet the old one!
