TCS: Expansion and Contraction

Before I settled in to start my Eve Work day off with working on the minutes, I decided to take a moment to do something in game that I have been thinking about. My adventures, of late, have been quite limited. I'm not undocking. Not because I am unhappy or upset but because if I have time to undock and kill things I have time to work on the Summit minutes. They will be done by the weekend and this short period of exile from space will be over. I consider it a fair trade off.

However, logging in and doing things is important to me. I've always advocated having more than one pastime in the game. One may find themselves with short periods of time to play or perhaps on the CSM writing meetings instead of flying around. These things just happen.

What I decided to do, over my breakfast of tea and coconut shrimp, was to move my third TCS alt out of Bosena and send them to Sujarento. The reason behind this came from the fact that TCS sits upon 5 billion ISK in unlisted stock. Some of this is recently delisted. A lot of it however is things that barely move in Molden Heath. Things that I have tried out or things that have been asked for that have not sold since the winter.

I have accepted that I cannot keep my markets at top top as I'd like. But, I can keep them healthy and productive. That means I'm keeping what does move listed and what is needed listed. This means faction ammo instead of T1 ammo. The T1 ammo barely moves if ever. Sujarento has the distinction of being in Faction Warfare space and I think these items will sell in those areas.

It is not a liquidation or a quitting its a maturation of the market. I've spent a long time working on Molden and I feel that I have a good understanding of how its market circulatory system. There is something depressing about items not selling for six months at a time.

I am using Galactic Hauling Solutions to move my stuff from Bosena to Sujarento. They have a flat, low sec fee and I can get about three billion ISK moved while I write. Then I will move my third TCS alt. This simply means that Bosena will only be able to carry 600 orders. Right now I'm floundering around 400-550 and that still occupied nearly thirty billion ISK in items.

Once that sells, I can move the TCS alt back to Bosena. My scanning alt's market training is going well and she will be able to step up and pick up the extra order load in Sujarento. This is not some announcement of breaking down Bosena. I'm more, refreshing TCS's coffers by liquidating static stock so that I can provide more to Molden in the future.

I also learned that you can only enter 200 items into a contract. I had entered 201.

  1. Is coconut shrimp a common breakfast food in your household? Inquiring minds want to know.

    1. No. I picked this up for dinner the other day but I was so busy at work I came home and just went to bed. I didn't want them to go bad and breakfast seemed like a great time to eat them.

  2. I have been working with Industry a little, and how also found normal ammo doesn't sell exceptionally well. I will probably try and move it to locations where it is converted to faction with LP.
    What else have you found that moves well? It seems that most meta 0 modules don't because there are so many Meta 2/3/4 available. And do you think the module rebalance will change that?

    1. For PvP in non FW areas T2 sells well and meta 4 sells well. I think that he module rebalance will favor modules for tight fits more than anything else. It will be a while until the new best usage cases appear.

      T2 and faction common ammos (every ammo type has them) sell well. I sell less long range ammo.

      Tanking rigs are always good. Scanning stuff is normally good.

    2. Do you ever see meta modules being able to be player-made? (not asking specifics, just how you feel about it) Right now we are stuck with T1 (which while useful in some areas like ships is downright bad in others such as ammo) or the useful-and-superior-to-our-other-option-T2.

  3. I've run into that 200 item list too often, usual associated with moving home/deploying. Probably I have too much stuff stacked around from trying all sorts of different ships, but it is very annoying.

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

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday  so yay for unallocated skill points. Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked. In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f
