I have been silently working my way through the new PI and even though making isk isnt hard and I can afford to do so I have a problem with the following:

Hotspots on a planet depleting and having delete and replace my ECUs to a more favourable place upon said planet.

To make a new colony of say : 2 ECU & 2 launchpads costs about 2 million isk per planet. This is costing myself a maximum of 24 million isk per day out of my PI profits. Of course the cost is lower if I don't have to move ECUs on every planet, right now its normal for me to move 50% of them daily.

I think this cost although ok for me might be very bad for some people who don't earn alot of isk, PI is of course meant to be newbie friendly. The ISK of moving these ECUs around is most definitely not newbie friendly.

Can we lower these costs?

Can we have hotspots not deplete? It takes many YEARS to deplete oil fields on EARTH at a depletion rate of many HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of barrels per day. I believe the depletion rate of planets in our awesome game is very much wrong.

Something needs to be done about this as well as other PI related bugs and issues already noted by CCP.

You don't HAVE to move your ECU daily, you only move them to keep a decent CCO up on them.

However I do agree that the depletion rates are entirely too quick.
