    They're also a silly easy way to make money in high-sec. Arguably the easiest way to make ISK in game aside from the initial profitability research and going through having to buy a corp to anchor your pos.

    Re: Control Towers

    Can someone write a short guide about the skills needed to run a reaction tower. Also a basic paint image about the route the moon stuff goes. Smt like Mine > put in "whatever" > wait for it to finish cycle > do smt > sell

    Just to give me a general idea about it once i know what to look for i will google the shit out of the process.

    skills needed: anchoring I


    moon miner -> silo -> reactor


    the more complex the reaction, the more types of moon minerals you need, and the more silo's you need to do the dual inputs.

    Re: Control Towers

    Thanks, apparently i forgot that my market / whatever alts dont have any standins. I'll need at least 1.0 faction in order to set up a tower in 0.1 system (so i might need up to 3.0 faction standing /o\).

    If the pos gets reinforced i cant take anything from the pos (from the materials used for reactions / the end products)? Im really wondering how to do it properly, i might end up asking the corp of my (official) alt to invite my scrubby 0 SP trader alt so i can do some POS bznz. :/

    If you need on the spot instant faction standings, starting from zero standings, run the relevant datacentre agents. Should cost you less than 200m to reach 4.0-5.0 ISH

    Actually the payout is terrible now (unlike some months ago). I realised that i can make 3 times the money for the 2 hrs / week i will be spending on this. Well, it will be fun for some time.

    You don't need faction standings to anchor towers in systems whose sec status is 0.3 or less, AFAIK.

    Didn't they up that to include 0.4 systems as well? I thought there was something in the patch notes afterwards like "oh shit, 0.45+ was rounding to 0.5 and thus was needing charters".
    Contract stuff to Seraphina Amaranth.

    Pretty sure you still need standings for 0.4.

    They removed that somewhere around tyrranis IIRC.

    Faction towers will go back in someday if we can ensure a better distribution of them. That's the issue here, and as others noted, it's exacerbated by high-sec (low-risk) POS, and so on. End of the day it's a distribution method that wasn't working as intended and needs a fix, if one is even possible (hence the "possibly" in Greyscale's reply).

    I'm sorry we can't provide more details right now, but that's where this particular thing is at right now. BFF has much bigger fish to fry, I think you'd all agree, so it'll get some attention, but only once other priorities are dealt with.

    They are supposed to drop from mag sites, but have not done so for a long time now. CCP is 'investigating' why they stopped dropping, but its been broken forever now and is clearly not a high priority.Edit: beaten.
