Here's the deal: A long long time ago I started working for a L4Q-14 R&D agent in the field of Caldari Starship Engineering.

Recently I decided to train the skills to have a few more R&D agents, said and done - and at the moment I'm working with 4 of them in different fields.

Now, here's where something starts to go wrong: I have identical skills in the respective fields (all at L4) and have the same standings to the corp (same corp) yet my new agents only give about a 1/3 of the RP's I get from my old agent:

"Old agent" - L4 Q-14 gives: 232 RP's per day
"New agent" - L4 Q+-0 gives: 85 RP's per day

Could any of you nice research-wizzes out there please explain what I'm doing wrong?

PS. In the example my "new agent" is working in the field of Molecular Engineering.

Whats your personal, corp and faction standings with your old and new agent?
Not sure which of those 3 standings influence the RP received, but some (or all) of them do influence RP received. And you will likely have lower standings with newer agents.

Standings affect agent quality, which affects RP payout.

That said, agent quality has a much smaller effect than the discrepancy the Op describes. A quality increase of 1 gives 1% more RP.

*slaps forehead*

It could have something to do with that the Caldari Starship Engineering agent gives a "research field bonus" of 3 x RP per day... Embarassed

Now, how can I get this bonus for my other agents? Wink

Regarding the standings: They are the same. (same faction, same corp) Can't find personal standing for any of my research agents though...

As you noticed you changed researchfield.
Starship give 3x the rp but a datacore cost 150(3x)to.
You get arround the same number of datacores per day per researchfield and no you cant change that bonusnumber.
