I wanted to share that this just is not an effective p4 setup. P4 is dominated by scalability and large scale production. If you are producing p0->p3 then you gain next to no profit from converting any of your p3 into p4.
For example: the profit of making sterile conduits versus just selling the p3 to Jita buyers == 196,172 isk.
- So this factory pictured makes a profit of 392,344/hour.
- 9.4mil isk a day.
- Requires 9 other planets to fuel.
- For much more effort you only make 1m isk more a day in profit per planet.
So it makes sense for all P4 producers to focus on P4 and p3 to focus on p3.
There are special cases where a p4 producer should make p3. Usually when one input is ~7.5% higher price to buy than it is to sell immediately. Then only if you have enough p3 production to feedstock the p4 you’re going after.
And everyone else do p0->p2.
This set up is too small, and too slow. The p4 market can turn in a matter of days…while you’re sitting on stockpiles of p0->p3 production that takes 1000 clicks to turn, and could take a dive with a down turn in a number of markets.
