Capital LevelPosted: 2011-07-20
Over the past three months, I bought up some Capital BPOs because I wanted to cut the costs of producing my own Thanatos and Obelisk ships.
After a few successful sales, hauling all the lowend minerals around got a little tiresome. One Carrier build takes about 2.34 Freighter runs of minerals, whew. If you have ever piloted a Freighter, you know how terribly slow they are to align and warp.
A fellow blogger has a good post about producing Capitals (http://eve-fail.blogspot.com/2011/07/what-im-doing-now.html).
I want to take a different direction.
I’ve always wanted to run my own research POS so I ran some numbers and figured out that making copies of the BPOs will net around a 657.8 M profit/month.
3,383,000 ISK average per 5x run BPC
13.89 Days for a 5x run BPC
2.16 5x runs/month for each BPO
18 Capital Part BPOs
= 657.8 M BPC profit/month
– Cost of POS fuel at about 250 M ISK/month
= +407.8 M
Copying the Carrier and Freighter BPOs will be considered extra profits.
The key will be to finding a quiet lowsec system with a station. Also, I will have to install a corp office in the system so that the BPOs will be kept in a station and never be contained within a lab in a vulnerable POS.
