Currently Hulk invention takes 8 mechanical engineering datacores and 8 gallente starship ones.

I think it would be fairer for it to take 8 mechanical engineering datacores and: 2 amarr, 2 caldari, 2 gallente and 2 minmatar starship engineering datacores.

The reasoning behind this is that hulk invention drives up gallente datacore prices so all other t2 gallente ships become more expensive. Doing this would lower gallente datacore prices and increase the other datacore prices and force people to trade for all the cores they need and reinvigorate the datacore market.

I guess you could also make it so you can use any ship data interface to invent if that's possible in the coding, if not I don't particularly mind if its just kept so you have to use the esoteric one.

Mining Barges and Exhumers are based on Gallente technology. So it makes perfect sense the way it is.

I don't dispute that, it makes sense for them to be based on gallete technology but the result of that is a massive distortion in the datacore market which results in an inherent unfairness to those who wish to fly t2 gallente. Keeping the esoteric ship data interface for invention allows it to stick to its gallente roots whilst splitting the datacore cost between the races evens things out.

Unless you make them using different decryptors the difference is moot.

8 datacores are nothing special, but the difference in price to the gallente decryptors imposed by the Hulks invention was staggering and is still high.

Isn't this one of the reason why Gallente ship data interface is pretty ship compared to others?

If the gallente datacores are expensive... go get a research agent and profit.
