Spreadsheets in SpacePosted: 2013-03-13 Filed under: eveonline, industry, market | Tags: anshar, aurora, bpc, bpo, carrier, pos, scorch, spreadsheet 11 Comments
My side interest in information aesthetics is present in my work, both professional and personal. I’ve received many comments on how clean and clear my analysis charts, reports, and spreadsheet work can be so I though I would share some of my Eve related spreadsheet work to inspire people.
Here are screenshots from depreciated spreadsheets that I used for industrial production, speculation, and fuel estimations before switching to a custom web-based solution that my partner, Raath, created.
My design goal has always been to use small type-face Arial text that is boxed and columned with important information highlighted in primary colors or shaded in gradients to denote best to worst status. Some of these sheets are old with broken formulas or outdated build requirements. Pay more attention to the organization rather than to the numerical content.
Man, enough Spreadsheets there to make my eyes bleed looking at numbers.
Holy jesus, your spreadsheets kick ass compared to my pitiful Miner II/Strip Miner II invention spreadsheets
How did you determine what subsystems to build? The annoying thin about subsystems is that you might up with an unprofitable blueprint after reverse engineering
where do you extract BPC requirements of mineral/components? I did similar my self, extracting for t2 rig bpcs, but it took me awhile to do it. I can’t imagine doing it for all type of bpcs so maybe there is some special easy way?
math porn at its best…
at least i’m not the only one who makes these things 😀
Intresting altho how do you come at a price of 116 m for a Anshar BPC ?
your obelisk bpc prices are out of date, freighters are going for 150-200 mill per bpc
Yep, these are depreciated sheets.
That’s really nice thing, I was a newbie from China EVE server. I got some ISK from FW, but now the retribution comes, I want to go for invention and manufactures, I really appreciate if you can share your spreadsheet to me then I can make changes for myself, your partner’s website was crazy good but not suit for our situation. Thanks in advance.
Blake, I was wondering if there was anyway you could share these amazing spreadsheets with me as I can update them. I noticed you put a lot of time and effort into these, and they are by far some of the most advanced and elegant spreadsheets I have seen. Please let me know if you are willing to share these.
upon searching some more information about eve construction spreadsheets i stumbled upon your blog. First of all congratulations for a very well built and refreshing blog. You do not see many of them out there nowdays. Is there any chance you could share your spreadsheets?
