Starting in April, EVE Online will be making some big changes to industry and manufacturing.
Material requirements for manufacturing ships will get an update, with a focus on Tier 1 ship blueprints.
Requirements for a given ship will be determined by a variety of factors, including tech level, ship category, hull type, size, and purpose, among other things. Based on these factors, each ship will be given a tier, and their material costs updated accordingly.
This update will come in two phases in April. Read the full update here.
