Let the research begin…

As a follow up to my post about becoming a scientist in EVE Online I can now report I am now officially researching. Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be generating any cool tech II blueprints for a while though. I am generating 3.8 research points a day. Although I don’t have anything to compare that with, it doesn’t sound like many to me. So right now I’m busy doing agent missions for Lai Dai - the corporation that my research agent belongs to - in an effort to increase standing and therefore the number of RPs I get. There are lots of little things I’d like to know (and I’ll test and find out if no one tells me) about research. Like do any improvements in skills or standing take an immediate effect or do you have to stop researching and start again? And do the points you’ve accumulated stay or disappear when you stop researching? EVE, online games, space strategy games, research, Lai Dai
