So a few weeks ago I blogged about needing to fund 3 plex a month to keep my accounts going, and ways I could do this. I settled on the (post-Odyssey) rather volatile T2 ship market as my chosen subject.
Basically, the requirements were to make a minimum of 1.6 bil a month to fund 3 plex to keep things running smoothly, while not gimping the manufacturing I was undertaking for my Corp to help increase the Corp wallet levels to continue our projects. T2 was my specialist subject (although I’ve just blogged about my experimentation with the dark arts of T3 which will be subject to ongoing reports to you
Before I give you some numbers, one thing to note is that I invested 1.6 billion ISK in researched T1 BPO’s from contracts.
Some numbers after 4 weeks of running things (original post was done after I had already started the manufacturing programme):
- 0.5 billion ISK spent on datacores and decryptors
- 9.7 billion ISK spent on minerals and moon goo (final product things like Nanotransistors as opposed to raw or intermediate materials)
- 12.1 billion ISK achieved in sales (after sales tax)
That leaves me with a net profit of 1.9 billion ISK, which I’m really very pleased with.
I was so pleased that I rather stupidly blew more than a plex worth of ISK on funding my experiments with T3 manufacturing. Doh!!! Better hope I make the ISK back quickly so I can make up that final plex worth of ISK.
Before you ask – no I’m not going to tell you which ships or which class of ships I’m making. I will tell you that I’m using a mixture of buy and sell orders in both regional markets and Jita, as well as selling all of my final product in Jita itself, but that’s as far as I’m going to go
