2012 Industry Goals

I admit it: I am industry-curious. Reading about making stuff on blogs such as eve-fail, k162space and A Scientist’s Life have spurred me to try my hand at industry in Eve.

Also, real life is smashing my playing time and this seems like a way to keep some skin in the game.

I have an industry alt training up, and in 2012, I’d like to try my hand at science and manufacturing (I have some PI cooking at the moment but I have no interest in mining. Undocking is so passé)

My goals in 2012 are:

  • Build and sell six capital ships, either fully-fit on contracts, or on the market with capital modules seeded by me.
  • Make one thousand invention attempts. I don’t even know if this is possible, so let’s see.
  • Sell a BPC on contracts for > 50 million isk
  • Buy a capital component or capital module (e.g. siege module) BPO
To someone like me who is just starting out in industry, they look like challenging but achievable goals, and I hope to have a lot of fun striving to meet them in the coming year.

Carries ships, repairs stuff, doubles as a toboggan.

    Whoa. Thats a lot of skin (read iskies) to have in the game… GL on that. Hope you have deep pockets for the set up.

    Invention is reasonably quick. You can run 11 invention jobs simultaneously with max skills. So even if you do one set of runs per day at a lesser skill level, you’ll easily blast 1000 in a year. Still worth doing all of your spread sheets before starting a particular line. T2 BPCs don’t sell all that well in my experience btw esp at -4, -4.

    Getting a hold of sufficient datacores/datasheets/decryptors etc more likely to be the issue (at least without killing your profitses). Also… POS fuel costs if you’re thinking along those lines.

    Good luck. Be interested to hear how it all turns out.

      I’m hoping that T2 invention kickstarts my funds enough to get the minerals to start capital production. The alliance has a tower that has cpu spare so after the fuel block change, I will add a lab for copying since the fuel cost will be the same, regardless of cpu use.

    Hmmm. If you can get a hold of the moon goo cheaply through your alliance (if we’re talking ships), that’ll make a big difference. Get a couple of the BPOs for the most needed T2 component production otherwise the copy time makes for big delays, esp on the larger ships. They’re not all that expensive in any case.

    Damn good point on the fuel blocks. Hadn’t got my head around that yet. Guess people will be tweaking POS set ups for maximal efficiency otherwise it’s something of a waste.

    I think all those goals are achievable over the course of 2012 and especially so if you have your own POS setup to do things. As well having already set the ground work for Industrial R&D setting up R&D Agents for Datacores and have some amount of BPO assets to start with as well. As well the Invention skills.

    Never done Capital Ships even though I can certainly build them, just not a huge interest for me to build atm.

    Certainly done way pass 1000 Inventions I can certainly say, I probably say i’ve done over 1500 Inventions at least and somewhere close to 2000 or so. I used to log every Invention and the count for Invention attempts, it became too tedious after 800+ logging of every attempt. Never sold any of my BPC’s as well. I invented them with the intent to actually produce what I invented from the T2 BPC. Last count some weeks ago there was just over 800+ numerous T2 BPC’s from invention all scattered across several Small Secure Containers to keep them sorted out. You can certainly generate enough funds doing enough Inventions and selling the produced items to market in the long run be able to finance getting into Capital Production. Worked well for me primarily being a Trader who does Industrial R&D.

    I’ve managed to do all my Inventions without the use of a POS by doing allot of long term planning in highsec. However based on your goals your probably going to need a POS to accomplish some those goals. POS adds a bit more complication to things and profit but does help allot with BP Research, the Capital process in the long run or to Copy expensive ships BPO’s that can take quite a long time to research to do Invention which can produce expensive T2 BPC print to sell i guess if thats also the goal.

    Either way its a adventure in Industrial R&D. Certainly you will learn allot of things in the process and allot of insights you probably won’t talk about with any clarity often just generally.
