I wonder if anyone is aware of an online resource (or an app) that tells you if it is cheaper to purchase either regular ore in order to reprocess yourself, compressed ore, or minerals in order to make something. A bit like the buy/build calculation in ISK per hour.
for example, say I am in Jita I have a BPC for 5 battleships and I am looking to build them. I can easily find out the price for the finished battleship, if I do “buy all” on the BPC I can see how much it would be to buy all the minerals from market. But it isn’t so easy to see…
- The cost of buying compressed ore and then reprocessing it to the given minerals (based on my skills)
- The cost of buying normal uncompressed ore and then reprocessing it to the given minerals (based on my skills).
- The cost of buying the items at the current buyers prices in a given location.
- or a combination of the above.
It would be nice to have something I can enter my relevant skills into, the item I want to make and it will come back giving me the best options based on the various criteria.
