My Eve Hoard

There is no time like the present to try new things. With the launch of Crius, I've decided to start producing some of my own frigate and cruiser hulls. The reasons are quite simple. Researching them is easier. Plus, I like projects. When you combine the two and shake it works out nicely.

The third reason is simply logistics. I'm attempting to decrease my reliance on my freighters. Many of my hauls are larger simply due to tossing in a fresh stack of frigates or a half dozen cruisers. Because my market attempts to stock every T1 hull, I go through a lot of them.

But the final reason is that I think it will be fun. I really, really like building stuff.

I've been told that I'm supposed to be a good role model to people now. I'm supposed to advise people in the correct and proper ways to do things. And my methods of going in screaming, "Wee!" and enjoying myself without looking at the big, over arcing, economy of Eve does not qualify as that. So, for all the super serious min/maxers, I'm sorry for offending and enjoying playing Eve wrong. Honest.

With my POS down I have to find research slots. This will be the most interesting part. I'll be able to research on the new lines and see if I lose all of my ISK. My last build of station containers cost me 210 ISK in taxes. I managed to get over that hurdle. I could buy already researched things but, naw! I recently named a container hoard and I think that is very accurate. My Eve Dragon Side's hoard is my creation stuff. Industry, POS, education. That's my Eve hoard.

What I do like is the industry tab under the show information for items. The industry tab not only lists the mineral needs but it lists the blue prints. This has made blueprint hunting easier. I approved of this.


How pretty! Anyway, I'm in a position where I don't have to worry about optimizing against the market forces for the hulls I will be building. I'll be able to build them and list them at current, competitive rates. I'm not going to drop prices further because I still have to haul, move, and build it all. Also, we're talking about 500k and 10m isk hulls. While I don't dance upon the alter of efficiency, I do have an interest in keeping my wallet balance from going down.

The entire project will take a few weeks to get off the ground due to researching. I can research twenty things at a time. By the time I'm ready to build the rest of my refine skills will be good and I can dabble in the new compressed ore market. That is, if I'm not utterly, unacceptably wicked and supplementing myself by doing some mining during my down time. Maybe I should make this blog as rated C for Carebear, with these thoughts.

  1. Crius has got me bouncing too. I'm even considering an adventure into building t2 frigate hulls.

  5. Come with me. I have started a few fun things like this between Olbra and Hek, and... I need a hauler.
    The manufacturing taxes are still low there : do not tell anyone! ;-)

  6. Have you considered entering into to some sort of purchasing agreement with local manufacturing corps? You could probably arrange some sort of agreement where you get a good price and they get an assured customer. It may be a good plan to fill the holes with what you can't do yourself. Just an idea I have been toying with personally.

    1. Yes. It is a supply and demand problem. My needs are sporadic and unpredictable. That makes it hard to supply from somewhere. I don't keep much stock (if any) in reserve.

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

Maybe one day!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio
