Perfecting Jump Freighter SkillsPosted: 2011-07-27
My Jump Freighter is a workhorse. I probably spend more time in it than any other ship. Ships, ammo, POS modules, POS fuel, minerals, and salvage all need to be moved around in nullsec.
Please take a moment and send a thank you evemail to the Logistical pilots in your corp/alliance.
A few month ago, I set out to reduce the Isotope cost as much as possible. One way on the round-trip into our nullsec staging system was consuming 21.2 k Isotopes with level 4 skills. By polishing them off to V, the consumption is now 14.7 k.
What’s the cost difference? 10.6 M vs 7.36 M, so about 3.24 M saved per one way run. Pocket change aye? But given that I was doing 5 round trips a week, that’s 32.4 M a week or 130 M a month. If you are in a phase of setting up or ripping down lots of towers, the number of jumps can be huge.
