"Getting back into the game maybe" update

I'm now at a point in RL where I can play eve again. This is a list of things I want to do:

1. Clean up science and industry. My low-effort iskmaking projects over the last few years have gotten me to a point where I can print isk at will, and as a result making money is no longer interesting. If there was a second level to it, like stock and bond markets, I'd be interested in those, but the game doesn't have systems to make them possible.

a. Capital manufacturing: I have a new capital spreadsheet ready to go. I'm planning to do one production run so I can make a guide, then shut down production but not sell my blueprints.

b. Research: About a year ago I started a project to see what sort of profits can be made resarching blueprints post-Crius. The blueprints are all researched, and when they finish selling I can publish the results. If I keep playing eve, this will probably be my long-term income stream.

c. Research labs. I ended up with 452 of these, which I puchased for between 30 and 32 million. I can sell them now for a profit of a few billion, or I can wait for the price to go up. Unfortunately, the price seems to be pegged to reprocessing cost because nobody uses research labs any more. I think I'll hold on to them for now, in hopes that a POS revamp will result in them either being used again or refunded for current manufacturing price.

2. Try and get back into eve.

a. Try ~solo elitepvp~.

b. Maybe try merc work again?

c. Try nullsec bigfites.

d. Maybe turn the isk printers back on and give it away for luls.

Stuff's in progress. I'll let you know how it goes.

Indy contributor: September update

Another month. 

I wasn't surprised when I saw price of plex. This is one of reasons why people with intentions of playing more than three years should have some form of passive income. It doesn't look like much per month, but it adds up in the long run. Eve has some diehard long-term fans, and offers infinite possibilities to actually get what you want independent of your gamestyle. I personally play the marketing and stock shares market of whole eve online more than anything else, investing my money into capital blueprints and plex. While far from most wealthy groups, being able to pile up around 150 bil capital and 300 mil sp+ over the span of five years isn't bad.

Parasoja's notes:

I'm not sure what's up with that blank line. There were several of them in the item list. If it happens again next month I'll have to see what's up.
