The Drone regions have no gas clouds, good moons, complexes, faction loot, or anything of interest really.
Oh, theres some plush they drop sometimes. Hmm, yeah that makes up for all the faction gear that people in other regions sell for hundreds of millions of isk every day.

The weird little dual damage type drone blueprints that drop are of no use at all.
Ive never seen one for sale in the drone regions as there is no point in making them.

With T3 production being introduced a lot will depend on things like fullerenes.
Does that mean that the drone regions will now get the right gas clouds, moons etc that are needed to harvest and make the new polymers?


How about this?

The Drone regions, a name that suggests the area is synonymous with creating unique and extraordinary drones.

Some really good drones, better than t2, or having specialised logistics roles.

Anyway, how about if the drone regions was the only area they could be produced in, giving the region its own purpose to balance out its lack of complexes, faction gear, good moons, gas clouds and, well, anything useful really.

Or how about making our npc actually drop named items that are worth a fortune like everywhere else.

Fullerines and other salvage and materials for T3, aside from basic minerals will all come from W-space. In that way drone regions are like everywhere else, you get as much as everyone else anyway since everywhere gets wormholes.

Drone regions do need a little something-something though, named drone mods or drone-related implants or BPC's for rogue drone-inspired ships via inventing with drone parts or maybe rigs based on drones and the wierd things you can do with them or something.

Or maybe give the moons there something fancier like a better mix of minerals? Like take every, say, 20th moon and replace the worst material with a material that is one rarity higher than the highest already on it?

Or maybe with the new "NPC's warp into belts now" thing in Apocrypha, sometimes have random rats spawn from other factions. One belt might have a few State whatevers in it, while the next few have rogue drones, followed by some Blood Raiders or Serpentis or Khanids or soemthing. Make it somewhat rare but something to break the monotony as other regions at least get faction spawns or maybe officers or even convoys.

All these I just made up as I was typing. Just one or two things would help to make drone space something better than a place that alliances go to sleep it off for a while.

you shoulda been there back when they first brought em out Smile

though tbh this is 1 of the reasons I'm glad to be out of the drone regions they really are some of the crappiest area's of 0.0. I'd like to see the drone regions give out something unique like a special drone weapon type or something to make them more useful.

last I heard the cost was kinda crazy for those things, I remember at one point hearing 300 mil for one of them.... you kinda lose the audience when they are that much.
