I've posted about the benefits and pitfalls of running a corporation's industrial program. It's like being an air traffic controller (from second-hand experience) and before Crius, it's akin to doing it without a radar. To be honest, with all the things going on in my life right now, I just haven't been able to put a lot of time in. I guess that it might not be hyper-critical at this point. Once Crius hits though, I would like to jump on the business-end of the change. I mentioned builders packs. I will also be keeping a large assortment of blueprint copies for our corpies to make stuff with them since they will all be at least ME10. We are building about 3-4 freighters a month. Things are going well and I feel Crius will open up the books for more profit, more activity and more fun. From what I have experienced on Singularity, the industry UI is great. I really like how everything looks and feels (after my initial shock). I think CCP did a good job on that end. The mechanics.. I really haven't developed an opinion on that as of yet. I just didn't get enough time to take a deep look at them yet. With Crius being implemented tomorrow, I guess the practice will be reality. Overall, I have high hopes for Crius.
Here are some great blog posts to look at while you wait for Crius to download and install. They are highly informative and entertaining reads.
