Assuming direct control
so if i read this correctly, you made profits of 5.4bn ISK made from Selling research items for 5.4bn profit , manufacturing profit of 2.2bn, offset by costs of 2.1bn (including 2 Plex)?Of your Net Worth, how much would you say is being converted into ISK (i.e. eventually will be sold or is already ISK) vs how much is there as a platform to generate ISK (i.e. the BPOs that you manufacture from etc)?
First question: Yes.Second question: Unfortunately the two are overlapping a little right now because some "research ships" are destined to replace my current set while others will be sold, but a quick approximation says that about 296 is in isk and things which will be sold, while the platform is the remaining 110 ("ship bpo," "component bpo", "compression items", everything under "ships", and about 10b from "research ships").I need to revise those categories. It's been years since I even thought about them very much.
I would be interested in how much time you actually spend on running your business. I would assume at least the reaserch part is very low maintenance.
Very little. I did an isk per effort for capital manufacturing a while back ( http://eve-fail.blogspot.com/2013/01/isk-per-effort-capital-manufacturing.html ). Haven't gotten around to doing one for research, but I'm pretty sure I spend even less time on that.
How the frack do you sell a Drone Bay BPO for a 1.2 billion. I've gotten 1 billion for a few 100ME/32 PE prints but 1.2 is a kick in the balls.Also, capital construction components are not selling and its a motherfucker...
Market fluctuations. Happens with everything occasionally, so research all the things and maybe one of them will have a shiny margin. That's probably the best I've ever seen on a drone bay, and I've been doing this for years.
Any way you could republish you capital manufacturing spreadsheets? I am looking to move into manufacturing Carriers, and I would love any help you can give me... Also for a beginning operation of 1 character with 10 slots, what would be the optimal number of BPO's for each component?
