Industry and science update: Pretty much as expected

Project 1: Capital manufacturing. This is fully funded and running at capacity. There may be some minor tweaks in the long term, but for now I'm leaving it alone. I am looking to add mineral compression to this process, and that should be up and running in about a week.

Project 2: Research capital component blueprints to sell. This is fully funded, and I currently have about 45 components in research.

Project 3: Research capital hull blueprints to optimal ME and PE2 to replace my current set. As of today this is fully funded, but most of the blueprints are sitting in a hangar waiting for my mineral compression blueprints to finish and free up some research slots.

With everything pretty much done, except for getting mineral compression running, there's a good chance that my posting volume is going to fall off a bit. On the other hand, there's also a chance that sometime in the next six months I'll start having more time for eve. Guess we'll see how it goes.

Nehow, with all my projects fully funded I am now generating actual surplus isk for the first time in something like a year and a half. I have a particular net worth goal in mind, which I should hit in a month or two, but I decided to mark this occasion with an upgrade to my blockade running tengu.


Added nomad set.
Added SM-706.
Switched one inertia stabilizer for a warp core stabilizer.
Switched gistum B-type EM wards for pithum A-types.


Align time decreased from 3.0 seconds to 2.6 seconds.
Warp strength increased from 2 to 3.
EHP increased from 164 to 180.

The nomads also decrease freighter and JF align time by about 25%, which will be nice.

Ship drawing winner

So hey, funny story.

Anyway, I have a bunch of those sitting around so I'll just contract one of them instead of actually waiting for one from run 100 to finish.

I didn't choose the mission runner life, the mission runner life chose me

No, seriously. This **** is ****ing tedious as **** and you couldn't pay me to do it if it wasn't going to make my life easier in the future.

Another 3-ish weeks and mineral compression should be up and running.

Giving away a ship

In celebration-or-whatever of my 100th run, I'm giving away a ship. Maybe I'll make it a tradition and do it again at run 200, though I expect that will be more than a year from now.

To take part, pick a ship from the selection below and post a comment with the ship you want and a character it can be contracted to. At some point in the next five days submissions will be closed and a winner will be picked at random. Some of the ships may take up to two weeks after the winner is chosen to finish building.

Ships available:


EDIT: New entries are closed and a winner has been chosen.

Break-even day

When I started building capital ships, my goal was to make enough each month to buy plex for my accounts.

This turns out to have been somewhat of a low bar to clear, but I still buy plex right after finishing my monthly financial report so that I can can see my change-in-net-worth figure turn negative, then positive again.
