Optimal Carrier Blueprint RatiosPosted: November 15, 2012
Carriers use a lot of Drone bays, especially the mighty Thanatos. This large requirement leads to a bottleneck in production so I wanted to know the optimal number of Drone Bay blueprints needed to remove this problem.
Using a ME2 Thanatos BPO, I found the optimal ratio of blueprints needed to complete the construction of Capital parts needed for one carrier in around 5.9 days.
Having 6 Carrier Drone blueprints removes the Drone Bay bottleneck and pushes that problem onto 3 other components. I started to adjust the other components to shift the bottleneck around, but it just seems to increase the same radio of problematic blueprints. From my work it seems that the 1:6 Drone ratio is the simplest ratio.
