An interesting thread on the 2.1 economy

Hi folks, I just spotted a thread that some of you might find interesting so though I'd pass it on. Maybe some of you would like to add your own observations and theories to it.

It's over on the main forum at this link: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/265899-The-2-1-1-6-Economic-System

June 15th Server Side Update

FDev have applied a server side update this afternoon. The update has increased the material and data storage limits, reduced the amount of rare's needed to unlock some engineers as well as adding some surface material location information to the game.

When you're docked at one of the engineers bases check out the news stories on the Galnet feed to the right of the station interface.

You can read the full notes here.

Fly safe,
Cmdr Thrudd


FAQ

How is the data gathered?

All data is gathered by members of the community and entered manually through an admin interface on the site, by uploading a csv of data gathered by using OCR tools or by using the EDDN network via ED Market Connector.

To upload CSV data you need to have reached Competent rank on my site but using the site or updating prices. See the list below.

How can I contribute?

Access to the site is gained through registering and using the site. New users can query existing data after a few searches they can unlock the ability to edit prices and later adding editing stations and systems. Sending me a nicely worded email also works. ;)
