The kids have started their new School year, and overnight most of my EVE time disappears into Taxi duties.
I finish off gathering the extra resources using my partially rebuilt PI infrastructure. It seemed to work OK, particularly in lowering the taxes I pay.
The final required component is manufactured. The result was slightly strange. The blueprint copy remained in the build project container after the job was delivered. I couldn’t interact with it however, and it disappears after a nightly downtime. I also have some left over Nocxium and Pyerite. More mistakes in my spreadsheet for me to hunt down.
I find a useful tool online for displaying the manufacturing cost index for a region:
It turns out that Akes is by far the most expensive system to build in across Devoid.
If I was to do this for profit, I would have to move my manufacturing elsewhere. At this point getting it built safely is more important than saving 10M ISK.
The final process is pretty much an anti-climax. I have all the components and am good to go.
I start the job.
I wait for it to complete.
Then I deliver it.
If I anchor it, it will look something like this:
This has obviously been more about the journey than destination.
So what do I do next? Do I build another one to test, refine and hon my processes? Do I build all the fittings required for it? Do I start on an Astrahus?
I’m leaning towards the fittings.
Whatever my next step, I’ve been reminded over this project just how important having goals is for solo play.
