The title, mostly. My problem is this:
1, I find I enjoy this, but I have no idea what the hell I am doing.
2, I’ve looked into some of the sites for EVE, like EVE industry, but I don’t know how to really, truly use them.
And please explain all of this to me:
Q1: You turn basic materials into useable goods. You need a station providing factory space, time, skills, blueprints, and basic materials.
Q2: Watch some tutorials. EVE has a steep learning curve, it’s perfectly normal to feel lost at the beginning.
Screenshot: This is a third party tool that shows how to combine all the needed parts to produce Cap Boosters 100 and calculates / simulates the result: Which station, quality of skills, quality of the blueprint, number of runs.
Q3: Alphas are restricted trial accounts. You won’t make a fortune that way, but you definitely can learn how it works. After a while you find patterns and niches that work out for you.
Think I could find a way, later on, to plex my account doing this? I’m not looking anytime soon, since I know it’ll take awhile to get there. If so, what products/activities do you think I could do to plex it?
I’m sure it’s possible, but it’s difficult solo because you’re facing better capitalized market competitors. i’d look for an indy corp who know the intricacies of it. You can try to profit immediately by looking for items that should be on the market and arent and making those, but margins are so narrow that its often cheaper to buy and ship from jita. I’d recommend instead pick a couple blueprints that you will find personally useful, shuttles, ammo, favorite frigate and research those while you learn.
