Looking forward

What to do next?

I think I'd like to shoot some people.

Now, the problem I have with pvp is that most of the time it doesn't mean anything. People don't run out of money, and they expect to lose their ships, so it doesn't matter to them when if actually happens. At least that's the case in null and WH, and lowsec is literally fight club.

As far as I'm concerned, pvp that doesn't affect the other person's gameplay is pointless and dreary. I can't affect people in nullsec, or low, or WH, but maybe I can in high.

I'd like to see if I can kill a corporation, so I'm going to see how I like highsec wardecs. To this end I've dropped my combat characters from my industrial corp to create "Eden Frontier", and will be searching for a target for a trial run.

In which the shutdown proceeds apace

Just installed my tower's last research jobs. My last component manufacturing runs are finishing up, and all but two of my hull runs have been installed. Unfortunately those two won't make it in until after the patch, which will likely cost me a few components. Shouldn't be a big deal.

I'm thinking a little about things I could do for passive income after the patch. There are a few types of blueprints which take long enough to research that they might still be worth something, but I won't know for sure until after things settle down. I have enough isk to invest that I could make enough for plex on a monthly return of as little as 0.4% -- I just have to find something to put the money into.

Winding down capital production

Moved my last load of minerals to lowsec. My plan right now is to wait for prices to normalize post-patch and then see if it would be worth it to restart production.

It's quite likely that hull prices will spike like crazy when the patch hits - for a bit, at least - so I'm probably going to lose out on quite a bit of profit by not building through the patch. I just, you know, have enough money that the payoff isn't worth the effort of correcting all the builds I have in progress when the patch hits.
