Planning on a Rorqual in WHPosted: 2009-08-25
32D left for my main character to be in a Rorqual with basic jump skills and a long term plan of 78D to get all jump drive skills up to IV.
Basic skill books needed:
- Capital Ships, 400 M
- Capital Industrial Ships, 500 M
- Jump Drive Operation, 10 M
- Jump Drive Calibration, 30 M
- Jump Fuel Conservation, 20 M
Basic Total: 960 M
Now that means that I can fly a basic ship with no good mods. Let’s add them to the plan.
- Shield Emission Systems, 80 K
- Capital Shield Emission Systems, 10 M
- Capital Shield Operation, 20 M
- Leadership, 20 K
- Mining Foreman, 75 K
- Mining Director, 400 K
- Graviton Physics, 10 M
- Advanced Mass Production, 20 M
- Industrial Reconfiguration, 23 M
Mod Total: 83.575 M
Now that brings us to a 1.044 B plan with a 157 days ending in late January 2010. This doesn’t even include the ship, which is going for around 1.4-1.6 B. Quite the investment, but is it worth it?
My WH partner and I were talking about how many Corporate Hangar Arrays can fit into a Rorqual when compressed.
Blake > it can really fit 4 hangars of ore in it?
R**** > it’s about that
R**** > highend compresses at a 20-1 ratio, lowends at 40-1
R**** > so divide 1’400’000 by 20 and you get 70’000
R**** > that’s 2 rigged n expanded impels or 3 T1 indy, perhaps 4
R**** > but still it will change things for us massively
4 Corporate Hangar Arrays full of ore has to amount to around 3B worth of ore so that would be a good haul back to empire.
This plan could change our haul process dramatically as we can take the raw ore in WH space, compress it down 20 or 40:1 and bring it to empire to refine at a higher rate. Worth the time and effort? Anyone else using a Rorqual in WH space?
