Industrial Rejoice: BPO BPC Icon Change

On the test server we now have different icons for BPOs and BPCs. As a person that has worked with Invention, Research, and Manufacturing, I can’t begin to even describe how much this will positively affect me. I have been waiting for this change since I started producing items in Eve in 2008.

The darker blue icons are BPOs. Lighter ones, BPCs.

Thank you CCP for reviewing such forum posts as Akita T’s Thousand Papercuts thread.

      Yeah I thought it was going to be a meta tag that would display a “O” or “C”. Does the horizontal row shading not help?
