2012 Industry Goals Revisited

A year ago, I posted a list of things I wanted to accomplish in 2012. Let’s see how well I did.

Build and sell six capital ships: Failure

lolnope. I sunk all my liquid isk into one capital ship, which didn’t sell for months and months and when it did, falling mineral prices meant I lost isk. I’m not sure what I did wrong so I won’t be returning to this market until I work it out.

Make one thousand invention attempts: Success

Judging by the repetitive strain injury in my wrists, I think I have succeeded in this goal. I’m not sure it was a particularly laudable goal; it’s akin to making a new years resolution to lose a lot of ships.

Sell a BPC on contracts for > 50 million isk: Success

In fact, I did this multiple times this year, when I couldn’t be bothered submitting a dozen invention jobs every 90 minutes. There is a great feeling of satisfaction knowing that you don’t have to login again for 2 days 23 hours.

Buy a capital component or capital module BPO: Success

I bought one, then I sold it, then I bought three more. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Update: it went well.


Three out of four ain’t bad.


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 pass√©)

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.
