My manufacturing is going pretty well. So well in fact that while I stock up for a few weeks, I usually only last a week at most. This due to the fact that I can actually update my jobs at work, which means that my lines are currently spewing out T2 products two times a day.
This is positive for my wallet too. Especially when things like last weekend happen and one of the modules I tend to sell a lot suddenly went up in price and I was able to sell a few hundred of them for a million more than I usually sell them.
The station trading I was experimenting with however, has slown down once more. I made about 100million trading datacores but I tend to use a lot of them for my invention runs too, so I decided to stop trading them for a profit and just brought all the ones I had left to my home system so I can use them when the time comes and I ran out of the T2 BPC’s I have now.
I’m just glad that public courier contracts are a thing. Without these I would have given up on my manufacturing and invention ages ago. All I need to do is buy all the products I need in jita, then set up a contract for little under a million per jump et voila.. A few hours later I usually have the products where I need them to be on my manufacturing station, ready to be put in the corporation’s containers.
I still need to learn to just buy enough to last me a month or so. I still need to learn that that wallet is not doing anything with all the ISK in it. I should use it for things instead of just letting it sit there.
It’s the same as with putting your real money in a bank, it’s just sitting there, interest is almost non-existant, you might as well use it to buy stuff.
Stay tuned o7
It has been quite some time since I tried out something new, so last night I changed that.
The alliance was having a little null sec roam and when deciding on what to fly, someone asked for people who could fly in a Burst. Not paying much attention, and being the noob that I am, I said that I could fly the fit that was just linked, I even had most skills at level IV and some at V. Who knew.
“What do you mean, you never did this before?”
As most of you know, the Burst is a remote shield booster frigate, which was something I didn’t know at the time. Turns out I just volunteered as one of the Logistics for the roam. Something I had never done before. But there’s a first time for everything, right?
I got a few hints/tips from the other people in the logistic channel, someone told me to Anchor one of them, and I had no idea what that meant either, turns out that just means orbiting/staying close to said person. You learn something new every day.
“Orbit you say? I can do that!”
While we were out searching I made sure my watch list was up to date. Put the other logi’s on top, the FC and then some.
Turns out all a logi has to do is check their shield status and make sure to check up on broadcasts too. Not that bad of a job.
We used a wormhole to get a bit further into null and went out in search for targets.
A few jumps in, we struck the proverbial “gold”. One of my ingame friends had landed on a Golem and pointed him. It didn’t take too long before the rest of the fleet caught up and killed him. I can’t help but wonder: “What went through his mind when he saw us coming”
“Guys! Wait up, I’m falling behind!”
I didn’t get in on the kill, not only did I arrive late and only saw his pod disappear, but I didn’t have any drones in the Burst to whore on the mails… Yet.
Further in the roam I managed to get a hold of a drone by another friend in fleet putting one of his out and telling me to scoop it to drone bay. Allowing me to join in on kill mails. Which I did, we managed to destroy a few more ships, including a Tengu, so that’s nice.
“Don’t worry, I’ll keep you alive!”
My first time as a logi, and I didn’t have to do anything but follow. Which could be boring to some, but at least I learned how to fly a new ship, despite only having to repair someone once due to having a bomb dropped on top of him.
A few people did get killed when they lemminged through a gate, or accidentally got caught while scouting. They should have stuck with me to save them. Although I would have probably gotten killed in the process to because I was way too sleepy.
97 jumps later and we’re back home, the killboard spiced a bit.
I might just try to do this more often.
