Saying Goodbye to Railgun Compression

It is with a heavy heart that we must say goodbye to 425mm Railgun I mineral compression. The broken mechanic of mineral compression is finally going away as outlined in CCP Ytterbium’s Reprocess all the things! post.

This change affects our nullsec/lowsec capital production line to the point where we have to change our entire material acquisition, hauling, and building operations around.

Raath and I have spent a few hours talking about how to rework the production lines, but we can’t come up with a acceptable solution at the moment. We’re going to be halting our production lines and are going to take a small break. Hopefully some more changes come out around Fanfest time that will inspire us.

I am in no way against this change. It is a very positive one and has been needed for years so I welcome the new challenges we’re going to have with getting minerals around the Universe.


Carrier Runs 1-228

Overview

Carrier building operations have been running for 1,087 days and has generated 53.7 B in profit averaging 234.6 M/hull with a sale every 4.7 days.

There was a slight dip in production due to relocating our Capital building operations and my move across the country around November of 2013. Since then we’ve been steadily optimizing our operations and final March production counts came in at 17 hulls, almost matching our maximum of 19 in May of 2013.

Profit Charts

The profit trends on all hulls show a downward trend.

Chimera and Archon hulls are still holding strong while Thanatos and Nidhoggur hulls are not worth producing.

Future

We are not the only capital builder noticing shrinking profits as noted also by EVE-Fail. The upcoming mineral compression changes have us rethinking our logistical operation and possibly putting our capital building operations on hold.


Wallet Manager Code on GitHub

I finally sat down and learned the basics of GitHub. I’ve uploaded the Wallet Manager code to this project so anyone that has enhancements or bug fixes can collaborate as a community.
