...are the subject of this post.
First off, for the foreseeable future I do not intend to return to nullsec. I've considered returning in a limited capacity and just flying subcapitals or something, but there's nobody I want to fly with right now and I'm still feeling fairly burnt out on nullsec. So no.
Thus, for the foreseeable future my plan is to focus on building wealth. I have some plans for this, and these plans require a lot of capital. Alas, capital is not something which I have right now -- but this can be fixed!
You see, I have a lot of assets, and some of them are underperforming. Specifically, three supercarrier BPO which I have been copying, which have a combined NPC value of 52.55 billion. These each make about 100m/mo, and I could make a lot more than that if I sold them and invested the money elsewhere. Unfortunately two of them are nyx, which are currently selling for under NPC price (because everybody got nyx blueprints after dominion and now everybody wants to sell them).
From the looks of it, if I can find a buyer at all I'll be selling the nyx blueprints for about 0.6 billion under NPC price. Overall this isn't a loss, since copies have made me at least a few billion, but it does make me slightly sad. Oh well.
The third BPO is an aeon. There are none on contracts as I type this, so I don't expect to have any trouble selling it.
And so, on to the projects!
Project 1: Capital manufacturing.
What: Building capital ships.
Status: This is already making me lots of money (stay tuned for the next monthly financial report), but it isn't actually fully funded. Currently I have about 64 billion invested in it, and while I'm close to my theoretical manufacturing capacity another 8 or 10 billion would be nice, to round out my blueprint collection and get enough minerals to keep 2 of each ship on my spreadsheet at all times.
Project 2: Capital component research
What: Researched capital ship components sell for a fair margin over NPC price, and with three indy characters I could run 30 research jobs in parallel. Also, the blueprints I'm currently using for manufacturing are underresearched (ME30 PE10). What I plan to do is buy a set of blueprints of the same number and type that I currently own, get them properly researched and swap them out for the set I'm currently using. Then I'll put my current set of blueprints into research, and sell them when they're done. Then buy more blueprints, research and sell.
Status: Not yet started. Would require 28 to 30 billion to fully fund, but could easily be done a few blueprints at a time. I plan to get this started after selling the first supercarrier BPO.
Project 3: Trade
What: There are some opportunities out there to make easy money, but I'm not going to tell you what they are.
Status: Not yet started. Would require 8 billion to fully fund.
Side project: Top secret
What: I can't tell you.
Status: Currently colluding with two others to achieve goals. We're just getting started, and it probably won't pan out. Colluding is an awesome word, though.
So that's it. These are all the plans I have.
