I very carefully planned out how to make robotics on a hisec plasma planet using seven industrial facilities and a few extractors:

Base Metals > Reactive Metals, Heavy Metals > Toxic Metals, Noble Metals > Precious Metals, Non-CS Crystals > Chiral Structures

Precious Metals + Reactive Metals > Mechanical Parts
Chiral Structures + Toxic Metals > Consumer Electronics

Mechanical Parts + Consumer Electronics > Robotics

I decommissioned all my extractors and placed ECUs but now I can't place any extractors on those ECUs because I don't have the grid.

Is it possible to get this setup working again and if so how do I do it?

P.S. I know I'm a big girl for doing PI in hisec so please don't fire off your epeen in my face.

Can't cycle extraction because the ECUs can't cover all the areas required

Put simply you canít if you expect to use 4 ECUís, it can be done with 2 if, and itís a big if in Empire, you have the required resources near each of the ECUís so you can alternate between each resource (so you do 12 hrs A and C and then 12 hrs B and D as an example).

I think CCP discovered we (the royal we as in everyone doing PI) were not paying enough taxís (bit like the British Government lol) so decided to nerf PI down to either extracting one large resource or two smaller resources from a single planet and then (paying your export/import tax), move it to a third planet for conversion to the final product.

You can still produce the same amount of one or more products but you may find you cannot produce such diverse products, in the future you may have to specialise a bit more.

its teoreticaly possible but realy ineffective... P2 is max now ...

btw i can easily support 3xAdvanced P2 production in 0,0 space ..32h timer(lvl 5 upgrade) , 24h with lvl 4
