I'd like to get into Industry (help)

I have no idea what i’m doing and have always played combat content. I would really like to settle in a quiet system and anchor a pos or something and start making ships and doing PI etc.

Is it possible to do this in a highsec system? I don’t want to get nuked first day. Any advice? How do i get started?

I do this, and I figure if I can do it, anybody can. What do you aim to get out of it, though?

The POS is being phased out in favor of Upwell structures. The industry focused ones being the Engineering Complexes, Raitaru, Azbel, and Sotiyo, from smallest to largest. Anchoring any of these will make the anchoring corporation vulnerable to wardec, so that’s something to be aware of. Your industry modules in your structure will consume fuel, as well, so you’d have to do enough industry to make it worth the cost, or you can use npc stations or someone else’s engineering complex. What you do depends on what’s a comfortable level of investment of time and isk getting set up, and whether you are doing industry for fun or for practical reasons.

If you like, I own a Raitaru and live in a system I think is pretty nice. We do get a few gankers and have a bad egg here and there, but most people will be good to you if you’re good to them. I can answer basic industry questions, or questions about upwell structures if you have them, too.

Let me know what you need help with and I will do my best. This is somewhat within my area of expertise, but I do indy for enjoyment and to provide for people I know more than for profit. If you want to know how to make money, then I’d be a bad person to ask.
