Don't need to change or remove the explosive bps just give some incentive to craft other bps. Put some big iron mission style missions on some other bps and you'll soon see ores being used again.
Now this could work. As there are people already skilled beyond everything, the rewards probably need to be either rare blueprints or something e-peen related (attribute tokens or whatever).
This is a great idea. Like go and bring XYZ bp up to 100% quality rating for a skill bonus, since most of them don't have SIB or are expensive to start with like Simple I Conductors. Of course it only counts if you do it yourself from zero, can't be sneaky and buy one that is already cranked up half way. Then you'll see even more Jesters crafted for the trashbin, but this is what we want, isn't it?Put some big iron mission style missions on some other bps and you'll soon see ores being used again.
You probably overpaid for blaus but yes, some stuff is recovering nicely.Speaking of crafting; I had to pay 105% for lyst, 111% for blaus and 115% for narc last night. Prices seems to be on the way back already? A small nudge might be enough.

Typo and duru (=Dacascos) are up, with duru being higher than it was at the time nanolube was introduced, gazz is above 120% (although it dropping somewhat less than it used to might be a contributing factor), and igni (=Dynera) never really dropped below 115% throughout the whole Great Depression.
Putty, on the other hand, has crashed completely over the last month or so. At one point, it was about the only easy MU left, and everyone and his kanin started to bomb Shinook, with predictable results.
FOMA now seems to account for a bigger share of total supply, leading to a) sharper short term swings and b) ganganite being the new model tt food.
Duru and gazz are up, because MA changed the drop rate of it. THey largely replaced it with Belkar, which is why belkar is tt food now. Just an FYI.
Outside of Shinook, duru still drops well. Gazz is indeed somewhat less plentiful everywhere (as I already indicated above). My guess is Shinook is just overmined - it doesn't drop much typo and magerian either, mostly belkar/garcen.
