Pajeron @ 2005-12-18 04:13

Bladededge @ 2006-02-12 09:31
how the hell do you improve the ability to cut red tape,instead of cutting it with a pair of scissors you cut it with a stig?

Mr_H8 @ 2006-08-08 05:22

Yakobo66 @ 2006-11-14 19:42

Wish they would make these rollable or questable, paying hundreds of million is not very fun.
Kilawatt @ 2008-05-22 14:30
best place to look is adonis statics..the rest u will have to look up
Blakscorpion @ 2008-07-07 10:57
Actually the best place I have found so far is Tinker Tower in Ely. I have found it 10 times there and only twice in 2 different statics in Ado.
MaskedMumblr @ 2008-07-07 19:27
This is one crat those scammers aren't gonna rip off! I'm gonna get it myself!

@ Blakscorpion @ 2008-07-07 10:57

This nano wont drop in Ely, Your thinking of Just Improved Red tape. Not Improved cut red tape this is a QL 159 Nano.
SceneGG @ 2008-10-22 16:25
Tinker Tower is a lvl 162 instance in Ely
Haruspex @ 2009-03-18 20:05
Best crat buff!
Vladja @ 2009-03-21 23:23
Note that the crystal checks visual profession and the actual nano checks user profession, meaning you can upload it as agent, but not cast it. *cries* Whaaaaa :(
Ciekafsky @ 2009-07-20 12:46
You can cast this as an agent now. Ive no idea if its worth it tho ...
Ariensky @ 2009-09-21 23:25
Ciekafsky, you are wrong.
Agents can NOT cast it, only upload it.. Agents can cast Improved Cut Red Tape though.
Please check things before writing it in auno posts.
Ariensky @ 2009-09-21 23:27
;) error, Agents can cast: Improved Red Tape, Copy-pase error in the last post.

Dropped in ely tinker tower today (2nd level)

Red Tape on Wiktionary:
A derisive term for regulations or bureaucratic procedures that are considered excessive or excessively time- and effort-consuming. Thought to allude to the former practice of binding government documents in red-coloured tape

And, just so I do not contribute to the widespread and popular myth that Government is slow where Business is fast, consider how quick and nimble is the bureaucratic hierarchy of a Company Board of Directors, their meetings and minutes, and the process of approval of decisions made there at Shareholders meetings.

vampirella @ 2015-11-19 09:38
As of this date, the effects of this nano are now as follows:

Modify Add All Def. 75
Modify Critical Decrease 3
Modify SkillLockModifier -3

It no longer offers an Intel/Psy buff and all init. buffs with run buff have been removed.
vampirella @ 2015-11-19 09:40
^Addition to my post above:

It also no longer stacks with Cut Red Tape which has also had its effects changed.
houserocker @ 2019-09-15 17:57
This nano is also for sale at Greedy Shade in Pandemonium Garden. With 2000 CL it costs about 500m, with 2765 CL it costs 310m.
