Ah. Month of training wasted.
September 12, 2010

And about 40 mill too.
I love failed get rich quick schemes.
Remember tobovoni from my last blog. No don’t worry he’s not dead or anything, I just can’t be arsed using him. He’s been sitting around idly for about a month, I’ve had countless chances to move him to 0.0 but to be honest I can’t be arsed with the effort. And now that the new school year has started, I won’t really have time to do it. So that’s a month of training tobovoni wasted.

I’ll continue to do my part for the corps PI but at a severely stemmed rate of doing 23 hour cycles instead of 5 hour ones.

So that means that my billion a month is down the shitter, but let’s look on the bright side eh? I have a character that’s more than capable of ratting a billion a month with a little effort. Or I could run missions, but that does piss off the empire factions. Or I could be stupider than I was when I thought I could make a billion a month, I could send a character back to trading!

And that option is very tempting, I’m in a trading mood at the moment and I’ve worked out why my trade with moon minerals wasn’t working.
But I have to call upon the great bloggers and writers if eve to create a guide to trading that is worth while and free. I’m tired of reading the same one that starts with some guy talking to a woman. I’m sick of hearing about the eve billionaire book. I’m pissed off when my corpmate tells me he makes his money station trading. Give the noobs and us people who’ve been playing for nearly a year but make bad financial choices and skill choices a definitive, comprehensive guide to trading in all it’s common forms. And before you tell me no wise trader ever gives away his secrets, and people like me make them rich, fuck you. I’m irate every time I see my wallet crash when I buy a battleship, or a HAC.

Over the past weeks since I last blogged, nothing much has happened. I’ve still not managed to get into a PVP gang. But the PVE has been pretty nice. The other day we killed an officer. We got a nice bit of loot, I got a 60 mill cut from this and for the first time ever. I now have over 500 million ISK in my wallet! BOOYAH. Now watch me lose it in poker or somin. I’ll get to that later.
Then the other day I got a true sansha cruiser. That was far less lucrative, but it did give us a nice TS stasis web and a phantasm BPC. I’m waiting for that to be built and sold but the overall profits for the entire kill should be about 60 mill. Then add another 10 mill for a TS EM armour hardener u got and sold today to the same fool who has been trying to sell a station egg.

Like I was saying. Poker. That is also another tempting way to make money. I tried it over the Summer. At one point I broke even then I lost 10 mill in a couple of hands and haven’t gone back for a month. I know it’s very unlikely I’ll ever make a decent amount of money from it but you hear those legendary stories of people making billions in mere hours and you can’t help but be drawn into the hysteria surrounding it.
For those unknowing, you can play safe eve poker with EOH Poker.

And I think that has exhausted this past few weeks info my friends. Leaving only the inevitable skill checkup. Well all that’s happened is that I have analytical mind 5, learning 5, energy systems operation 5, and have energy management 5 8 days from completion.



More PI
July 1, 2010

Well. I keep blogging about my planetary exploits. In comparison to most I’m probably just a bit of a rookie, but I’m now really getting proud of my creations.

At the start of today’s eve hour. Literally I managed to squeeze in an hour of eve before I had to stop. I did a little ratting in EUU to get the funds a little higher, because straight from the start, I had an idea in mind. I already said that I couldn’t find command centres of sufficient level for me. It would have been better to say there were none in a range I could be bothered to go to. So I decided to do 6 jumps to grab an improved command centre, not just the standard version. The only one that was useful to me was a temperate command centre. The rest were useless as they were planet types not in EUU. Only problem was that when I went to go buy it, stupid SOLAR FLEET came to ruin my day. I waited for a good 10 mins while they cleared out before I could leave.

It was a really nice flight I flew throu… Wait. You don’t give a shit about that bit do you.

I got back with the new command centre and put it on the temperate planet and got checking what to extract. I setup all the extractors and routed them all to the right processor, but here’s the beautiful bit. I’ve now got a one planet P3 chain of industrial explosives! Shame I don’t know what they’re worth, but it can’t be too shabby once you get them to high sec. I may start doing P4 production though if I setup another planet to help it out

That’s really all I have blog, I’m just pretty proud of my P3 chain.


Ah. Quick training

So what did you spend your free 100000 so on? I out them all over. Most went into planetary interaction. I now have interplanetary consolidation 3 meaning I can use 4 planets concurrently, and command centre upgrades 3 meaning I can use improved command centres. Shame they don’t seem to be sold where I am.
So I’ve been forced to use a standard PCC to do my new operation on a barren planet. Despite being barren the planet seemed to have quite a lot of some pretty cool resources. So much so that this planet is engaging in P2 production. I’m pretty proud of myself for managing to get all the resources sorted out for P2. I could have a better colony except for the fact that my PCC doesn’t have the power to run what id like.

And the new primae. Has not been tried out yet because you can’t redeem in player outposts, only NPC stations. So I got tovoni to get it in jita. I’ll contract it back later. From what I’ve read it’s a good looking ship but after that it’s just like a crap industrial hauler.

Some of the skill points I mentioned earlier went into drones aswell to get heavy drones 3 and the rest went to industry to cut a few hours off.

I would probably be making more money by creating massive colonies on more planets except for the fact that it costs so damn much. I have 10 mill. Barely enough to start another colony considering PCC costs and then the taxes for building stuff. Nonetheless. I can see PI becoming quite profitable for me once I’ve got the hang of it and start making P3 and P4 products. Even POS modules.
