More or less than bargained for

We all know that I’m bad in logistics. So bad in fact, that when I decide to create a certain amount of T2 items, and I finally calculated everything I need. I still forget things. Despite the fact that I actually use said calculation, have it sitting right next to me when checking the market and making orders.

And yet every single time I forget something in my whole process. Last time I made about 1000 T1’s to build further into T2’s.. I thought I had everything, I had the materials, the product, everything except the one vital part that I didn’t think of at the time.

I had forgotten to turn on my invention process for the BPC’s… You can imagine the facepalm I made at that time.

Now we’re a while later and I’m happily chugging along in my manufacturing process, about 100 products get made every other day and I invent enough to keep the lines going.

It’s only one character, 10 research and 10 manufacturing jobs, but it keeps me very busy.
I can’t imagine what it would be like if I had multiple characters creating things. Can’t imagine what else I’d forget.
“Request for docking bay, I forgot a few things”

So tell me, what is the one thing you always forget? Are there times you go to a trade hub with something in mind, and then come back empty handed, or with more than you needed, but not actually the one thing you were there for?

The L-word

A while ago I decided to start up a trading character. Seeing that a lot of people seem to make most of their ISK from trading. I also decided to no longer sell my manufactured goods to buy orders (I know it’s horrible that I even did it!).

Now we’re a bit further in time and my trading character is doing, okay. He’s not doing great, but it’s definately not bad either. I gave him a few mill to start with, and he currently has a tenfold of the starting amount.
Which I don’t get, at all. Why? Well I still have no idea what I’m doing, I’m just winging it, the whole buy low sell high thing works, but I have yet to figure out the goods to trade and the why behind of it.

Well I think we all know the why behind of it, but it makes no sense. People are lazy. That is the only reason that some make a lot of money on them. It’s easy, people don’t want to spend their time jumping around to get their goods, they want one point where they can get them.

The perfect example for this is Jita, everyone knows that if you need something, Jita is more than likely the best place to find it. And it’s true, you will find it and chances are you won’t find it anywhere cheaper nearby. I’m guilty of doing this myself, I go to Jita when I need something, but I live 4 blocks away from the hub.

I’m still searching for the right combination of buying and selling though, right now I’ve just been lucky, scouring the markets for something to buy I suddenly find sell orders that go for way too little, I buy them, relist them and blamo, I’ve got a profit margin of 15-30%. It’s not that hard a job either.

But it does take time, especially when you haven’t got a focus point yet, as I told you earlier, I’m winging it. So I’m not doing one set of items, I’m looking at EVERYTHING. And that’s a lot of items, too many even.

Despite the fact that it works, I’m not doing that anymore, I currently have 100m on the trading alt, and I’m searching for the right investment to put it in. I hate browsing the market for hours šŸ˜‰
