More from you and less from the evil nasty NPC

CCP FoxFour here again to tell you something that I consider to be of great benefit to New Eden and I hope you do as well. One of our goals internally is to have as much stuff as possible on the market manufactured by the players. Having NPC's sell stuff when we could have our players doing it is... not so awesome. So we have made some changes to two categories: Cargo containers and survey probes. These two categories will now be manufactured by you, the players. :D

With containers this presents a small problem though. Station containers are way too big to move so they would only be available in stations with manufacturing slots. With that in mind we have added support for containers to be a different size when packaged or not. See the below picture:

Who will be selling these container blueprints you ask? More pictures!

The survey probes blueprints will all be sold by the same corporations that sell the probes currently. The following corporations will all sell Quest, Discovery, and Gaze survey probe blueprints:

Discovery Survey Probe I - CBD Corporation, Ducia Foundry, Material Acquisition, Minmatar Mining Corporation, Outer Ring Excavations
Quest Survey Probe I - CBD Corporation, Ducia Foundry, Material Acquisition, Minmatar Mining Corporation, Outer Ring Excavations
Gaze Survey Probe I - CBD Corporation, Ducia Foundry, Material Acquisition, Minmatar Mining Corporation, Outer Ring Excavations

How much will the blueprints cost?

These changes will be coming to New Eden for this year’s winter release Retribution.
