Admittedly, that may be a stupid/obvious question, but here it goes …
The overall context of the story is that I’ve got a few reasonably decent SP chars (101/93/86), two PvP, and one indy.
For a while, I’ve been doing industry (mostly T2 ships/modules) in high sec, first around Amarr, then a few jump off Jita, sourcing materials from the trade hub, doing copy/invention/manufacturing in a Raitaru and then in public/freeport structures.
All this to fund the unhealthy PvP habits on my main, that is, casual, no commitments, when I feel like it flying with NPSI fleets (Spectre Fleet, Bombers Bar, etc).
It’s been going reasonably well for quite a while, but not so in the last couple of years - taxes went up, margins went way thinner, the time to acquire materials at a reasonable price went up, etc.
A lot of my staple products just became unprofitable even though I went deeper into the vertical integration chain, down to doing some of the reactions myself.
So, my question to experienced people is, does it make sense to move to 0.0 to do the same kind of T2 production to fund the, now 0.0 warfare, expenses on my PvP chars?
Or shipping risks/costs, smaller markets, refinery taxes, or whatever there is would make this pointless?
(I now suspect the answer is “it depends” )
