Market Run


When running your freighter to market, always use a gun boat escort. It not only helps discourage unwanted attention but by using webs on the freighter it actually speeds the trip up significantly by causing the freighter to almost instantly jump to warp instead of the usual 30 minutes of aligning and accelerating.

New Moon Mining Station


For those of you interested, here is a screenshot of my Moon Mining station I have setup of the test server. 1.7 billion ISK worth of minerals just got blown out of my moon! That is phenomenal. That could definitely make setting up one on the regular server worth the trouble and expense.  I am still testing everything out but I had to show this off.

POS Fixed

After a bunch of headaches with glitchy operating systems and paranoid sysops, I finally got the Moon Harvester up and running and am producing a steady supply of Carbon Polymers. I have a new Ship Maintenance Array and a couple some production arrays for small ships and ammo(mostly mining crystals). Moved the Rorqual and my Hulk miners back from 5-0. Hmm…. Am I forgetting anything?

Well I guess that is enough of an update for now. Time to get back to my New Years celebration (sitting around all by my lonesome in deep space like always) Guess at least I have time to do some gas cloud harvesting in the Class 3 wormhole that has opened up in my system. Not very profitable but its something to do.

Moon Harvesting Headaches

Managed to get a couple more Silos anchored at the POS tonight. Sent Con Del to fetch a second Harvester to feed the silos. Reactor is online. OK then should have some production going soon… If I can figure out why the control systems are not actually letting me set up the links between the structures. This production stuff is a pain to a miner like me as it is without things going haywire on me. I could just mine the moon for raw materials but the value of such raw materials is too low to be profitable. So what does it hurt to set up some automated reactors to process the raw materials into something more profitable? It hurt my head because the machinery refuses to function. I am ready to send a subspace comm to the scam artist that sold me this defective junk.

Clone Vats

clonevatAfter a bumpy ride through the wormholes managed to find a route from 5-0 to  the low sec system of Eifer in the Hiemater region. The gate to Empire space was camped by an Amarrian Apoc battleship piloted by a capsuleer bent on smashing anything that invaded “his system”. Thankfully I am an experienced cloaky pilot and was able to slip past him into Empire Space. 2 jumps later I was in Hek solar system where I was able to acquire some much needed skill  packages to download into my implants. Most notably was the Clone Vat Operation skill set that will allow my to operate the Clone Vat installation I had installed in the Rorqual capital industrial ship back in 5-0. a mad dash back through the holes to home base in 5-0 and last minute checks of the Clone Vat assembly to make sure the techs at the station installed it correctly.

Soon I should be able to invite friends of mine to install a jump clone in the Rorqual so that when needed they can transfer their consciousnesses to one of my waiting Exhumer class Hulk mining barges. The additional skilled pilots in my fleet should prove quite profitable for both the pilots and myself.

This is a goal I have wanted to achieve for years.
