Having been watching the threadnaught and the lack of responses from CCP I made the decision on Wednesday to pack up as much of my NPC Null assets as I could and move it to a mid-point system that would be much easier to access them from.
I sorted through my assets and used General Freight or Station Containers to sort them to make things a little easier when deciding what to move and what to leave. Modules and ships would mostly be left, I could use an alt to seed whatever I had to market and sell once Phoebe was deployed and I should make a nice profit over my normal prices.
30 minutes before downtime last night I started packing ships into carriers and my rorqual so at least they were ready for when I needed to move them.
Then I awoke to this.
It's always the way though, just as you finish pacing for a trip you remember something you missed or find out that plans have changed and you don't need the kitchen sink or that extra pair of socks.
My wife looked on incredulous as I whooped and jumped around the house this morning after reading that Jump Freighters will be getting a maximum jump range of 10ly instead of the 5ly that was originally announced.
It seems that public opinion and comment has swayed CCP somewhat and the small industrialist who does their own logistics has certainly come out the biggest winner.
I've already been checking jump routes and whilst I'll need to add new mid-points this is much easier to do by moving existing cyno characters than create new accounts and setup new characters just for this purpose.
It's a Happy Friday around here today and I'm going to enjoy it by trolling my friend Cracker.
