Quick thought which came to me while I was ratting.

After all, pirates have to get those ships, modules and materials for them somehow, and they aren't rather self-sufficient? Obviously, as we catch hauler spawns from time to time, they do some mining and refining, but surely not 100%?

My proposal: calculate total mineral consumption by npc factions in region (counting destroyed ships), and buy fixed percentage of it (50%, less maybe) on the market, for example at downtime. Obviously, that works for human NPC factions only (sleepers do not interact with normal universe and rogue drones do not have isk).

What did I miss and why it's horrible idea?

Yeah, I know that loot drops were (will be) adjusted. Still, they are generated out of blue now.
