Started to build my own outpost "from 0.0". Checked market and haven't found any BPCs for parts. Looks like every builder buys BPO for 200mil for each part. Strange isn't?

Well. I bought my own BPOs and recearched some... And found such a fun thing: ME levels don't work with them. Now it is clear why no one even bothers with BPCs. Other fun thing is: copy time is incredible for those BPOs. It means you even can't make packages of BPCs to sell for some profit. This is simply non-profitable.

And i wonder: why outpost construction process is made completely outside R&D?

it's because they all appear in the extras part - to save the exploits that where there when they came out

Likely because, in theory, outposts are supposed to be a Big Deal. Something that is fairly rare, and difficult to do. A crowning achievment for an alliance, similar to the first Titan.

Given the proliferation, you can see how that turned out.

^^ This

Extra materials don't have any waste, nor are they reclaimable via reprocessing.

All structures requiring PI materials were reprocessable before the NPC sell orders were removed from the market. This resulted in people buying some structures cheaply from NPC, reprocessing them, then building more expensive structures with the parts and selling them back to the NPC. CCP finally stepped-in, far too late, and changed all the materials on structures to be extra.

You can do P.E. research to reduce build times though.

not strange : internal mechanism of game => Outposte ar not destructible in my memorie, one per "Claimable" System so no profileration of it and a very tiny market

You can Buy Part directly in high sec market (lot of storage bay remain Wink )
