Read about this somewhere. Are they only going to be manufacturing Earth 1s and S. Drives? Will this mean a reduction in cost? Also when will Advans become cheaper??

For Advans to become cheaper, first they have to be available.

This plant will be mainly producing Earth 1s. As of now the sizes are very limited but once this plant starts production at full speed, you will have Earth 1 in all major sizes (where you have A Drive now).

Soon, they may bring in a C Drive replacement as well.

S drives should be in the future plan.

Advans are not at all on the horizon so we people should forget about it!
