Returning player here, with an Omega account, and a small net worth. One of my favorite things to do in EVE is exploration, and I also like the idea of invention, which seems to mesh well with exploration. I’ve had fun learning the basics of invention, and I’ve just produced my first T2 BPC – a Cheetah with 4 runs and 3% ME. I figured I might as well make something I might use for exploration.
But now that I have the BPC, I’m wondering if I’d be better of selling it and just buying a Cheetah. I have decent market skills, but even so it would cost me 25m or so to build a Cheetah that I can buy for the same price. With 4 runs, I suppose I could build and sell four for a small profit, but that seems like a large amount of work for a profit that I make every day just trading. What do most newbie inventors do with their inventions?
Also, I’m a bit uncertain about how to sell things via contracts, but I can read about that here. I’m all ears if anyone wants to provide guidance on that!
