Refining and compression changes


What this means for me is that I have to use compressed ore instead 425mm railguns to get minerals to my manufacturing station. There's too little ore on the market right now for this, but hopefully that will change after the patch.

Calculating the ores I need to produce a particular quantity of minerals is going to be a PITA, but I can probably do it with a spreadsheet.

I'm going to need a lowsec reprocessing tower. Can probably use a small and leave it offline when it's not in use.

Also, lowsec manufacturers can build for less than highsec manufacturers, and nullsec manufacturers can build for less than lowsec manufacturers. This could be a problem for me if somebody builds capitals in null and exports them to high. Doing that would be quite a lot of work, though, so hopefully it won't force me to shut down or anything.

[Reporting interval] financial report

Well, I guess this is what I get for not logging in for a month.

No, srs -- I let my contracts lapse without making new ones, adjusted market orders maybe twice toward the beginning of the reporting period, and the damn thing still handed me 10 bil. It's getting embarrasing.
