this will greatly affect the cost of reactive and toxic metal related by products.

BUY BUY BUY!!!!!

Well Construction BLocks have stopped being dropped by NPC's so in theory they can rise a little in price as the supply has gone down.

But on they other hand they're blocks, I mean how dull is that, who wants to show off the money they're making off a load of blocks when they could be making money trading OMGWTFPWNmobiles.

I have calculated prices for construction blocks, and got numbers that made my jaw drop.

Current prices: 7000-9000 isk

Predicted price: 34400 isk

The calculation is:
40(reactive metals price) + 40(toxic metals price) = Predicted price
40(600) + 40(260) = 34400

Taking into account the fact that increased demand will increase the price of reactive and toxic metals over the next few days/weeks, and taking into account time costs in manufactoring the goods, I expect construction blocks to rise to over 40k isk.

Happily I got lucky and bought 100k of it 2 days ago... Very Happy

I hate to rain on your parade (well, that's not actually true), but each cycle outputs 5 units, so it would be 40*(input 1+input2)=5*price, or 8*(inputs)=output.

You can't rain on my parade, I bought my stock at 5000 isk/unit. I'm making out like a bandit this very moment.

You sure? my range buy orders pick them near noob systems regularly.

They have indeed stopped being dropped. A GM said so a few days ago, when all this started... not sure where the link is though sorry. You might be able to find it buried in that planetary vehicles thread.

I made a point of running an alt through the noob combat missions, there used to be a couple of structures dropping these, but both of those structures contain non-PI trade goods. I blew up a bunch of NPC haulers and the only PI mats were Water and Oxygen. I ran the 'Hidden Stash" mission, again nothing of note there.

I won't be surprised if there's something that's been missed (Cry in the Dark used to drop lots of construction blocks IIRC) but my quick checks would point to a reduction in the sources.

Demand for this in jita is ~350k units /day [not much]
People produce more than 600k Coolant/day ...
and more than 500k Enriched Uranium/day ...

More than 60% players makes Refined Commodities P2 without buying P1 from market ...

After max 2 months at 10k+ price, production of Construction Blocks will be self sufficient for a market demand.
Producers of Enriched Uranim [Plasma Planets]
[Precious Metals + Toxic Metals] will be producing
Construction Blocks [Reactive + Toxic Metals] [Plasma Planets]
If price will be higher.

...just simple change.

There is my chunk of profit Wink :

Do someone can buyout coolant up to 10k ?
I'm waiting for this moment. I've got Water for sell ugh
And 3M+ Coolant for 10k+ YARRRR!!

This could push robotics to 100k a unit. Please keep an eye on this market people. If it does spike again robotics will respond accordingly.

It's not going to spike. It was a massive manip. Sell now or suffer huge losses.

You mean you didn't buy four or five million construction blocks at 500 per unit before the PI rollout?

This only affects me so far as i'm a producer of robotics of which the materials making it affect my prices.

This.

Construction blocks are just going to fall right back down to 4500 or less after the brief manip. You could get lucky and ride the manipulator's efforts if you can dance around.
