A Scientist's Life in Eve

Focusing on core objectives

by on Jan.23, 2014, under Eve online

After careful consideration and a very successful trial, I’ve changed my operations around a bit to drop regular mining.  I do still mine sometimes while doing something long and drawn out, like moving a freighter around for example, but generally I’ve now come to rely upon courier contracts to move things around.

This has the nice side effect of leaving me with 70 invent/copy/research slots, and 70 manufacturing slots.  I could expand that by another 10 if I really wanted to, but for now I’m trying to juggle things to keep everybody busy almost all of the time.

I also realised that I had almost 10,000 BPC’s to invent from, and so decided that copying anything apart from ships for now would be shelved.  It also means that I will take this opportunity to slowly expand my BPO catalogue and use some of the copying slots for material and time research instead, which is something I’ve been wanting to do for a couple of weeks now.

Project Purple and Project Hexagon are progressing at their own pace.  When asked what they were by a fellow blogger, I declined to give specific details, save for that one project is for me, and the other for the Eve community generally.

In other news, I’ll be visiting some parts of America during the first part of April, and taking the time to meet up with some Eve players who I’ve known for a long time.  If there are any Eve meet-ups planned in The States during the first half of April, please let me know.  Let’s face it, it’s pretty unlikely I’ll be where the meet-up is at the right time, and most likely will be many hundreds of miles away, but if you don’t ask…
