This is the background I see when I undock from my new home system in EVE.
As part of the process of shifting back to one account, I’ve moved into a new Hi-Sec Home Base. I’ve discussed this notion of a Home Base before. This is where I keep my main training clone, all those collectibles you pick up over the years, various assets I keep for the memories, and a collection of spares.
My first Home was in Salashayama in Derelik. It was 9 jumps from Rens, 23 to Amarr, and a long 32 jumps from Jita. It was inconvenient in that regards, particularly as I started back in the days before jumping to zero was a thing. It might seem an odd term to use – but there is a hardship to being so far from the major trade hubs, particularly when you don’t have Corp or Alliance mates to share the hauling load with.
From memory my next main Hi-Sec home was Alkez, in the same region but a little closer to Jita.
I then moved to the similar named Akes in the Devoid region. This is where I spent some time playing around with PI and backwater Trading. Again it was a move closer to Jita.
In November 2014, two years ago, I moved to Fora in Domain. This was a great little quiet system just 3 jumps from Amarr and 11 jumps from Jita.
Yesterday after more than a week of spread out hauling, I finished moving around 25B ISK worth of assets into Tasabeshi, just 4 jumps out of Jita.
It has a lot more traffic than I am historically used to, but given its location not as much as I expected. Shopping will be a breeze, there are lots of agents available, and I get to live with the Guristas for the first time. It will require a little bit more care and attention, but I needed that to wake me up a little when I undock.
The move took well over 1,000 jumps – all done manually. I used a variety of hulls to shift my assets. Most of the heavy stuff went in an Orca with a couple runs in the Occator Deep Space Transport, and most of the light stuff was moved in a Viator Blockade Runner or a Victorieux Luxury Yacht. I tended to keep most of the load values within 500M ISK, although that sometimes stretched to around 700M. The single highest value load was around 1.4B ISK, and were mostly BPO.
I ran backwards and forwards through the Amarr – Jita pipe, over and over again. I saw plenty of Gankers and passed wrecks and large clusters of Concord ships, but was never troubled. I assume this was due to being in fast, manually flown ships, some thought to cargo values, some thought to fittings, and an indeterminable amount of luck.
Now to settle back down to sorting through my stuff, looking particularly at the ships I keep. What they are and how they are fit changes when you won’t have an Alt around.
