I had planned to start datacore farming with this character, did my research and thought I had everything planned out. Chose a corp, got the standings, got the skills, but when it came to the standings I noticed something.

The L4 R&D agents' info page indicates my corp standing must be 3.00 or higher. I grinded to 3.00 and was still not able to start research with them. That's when I noticed that all other L4 agents require 5.00 standings and it appears that research agents are the same. Seems to me at least that there is a discrepancy between what is said on the agent's info page and what is actually required. Not too big of a deal, I'm almost at 5.00 but I could have been there by now because I thought I was done griding.

What's up with that?

Read it again. The info box mentions 3 different types of standing; Personal Standing, Corporation Standing and Faction Standing.

For a L4 R&D agent you need at least 3.0 with his corp AND ALSO at least 5.0 with either him, his corp, or his faction.

I see now. My info window was small and cut off most of the standings part.

It's confusing how they differentiate from standings required to "use this agent" and standings required to "use their services".

I am running level 4 r&d with a creodron agent. I have 6.76 standing with creodron. With the agent i have a standing of 0.03. I have noticed that if i run a mission for him i get about a 0.01 increase in my standing towards the agent and the corp and also get a small boost in the daily rp.

Is this due to the agent standing increase, or the corp standing increase? If its due to the agent standing increase, does anyone know the difference between rp at 0.03 and say 5.00 agent standing (is that even possible?)

RP gain = (1 + ( (agent effective quality + 5 * negotiations skill level + 20 )/ 100 ) ) * research field multiplier * (agent level + your relevant skill level)^2
And agent effective quality is base quality due to missions modified by connections skill level, NOT rounded.
