Q: Who else?
A: I want to believe, that UPK built or planning to build by some one else, but i dont hear official statements. There is few person or corporations, who have finances for built it. But i suppose they cant, dont want, have others plans or they built it silently. I dont have arguments for claim to built UPK and doing it first in EVE, i just try. If some one else declare to built UPK and will be have arguments on this, then i help him or compete, if investers make decision. In case, way of project will be ruled by investers council. They also decide about my possibility of decisions.
A: Creation. Considering the overall, in game leisure can split on two parts: UPK building and other. They dont have practical differences. For now, mostly clear purpose is UPK can be another market, goal monument or reason for mostly epic fight, but repeat, decision will make investers. My personal vision of purpose, i will keep to myself, for now.
Q: Where UPK planning to build and anchor?
A: My vision of building plans and anchor related with Thera. Ofcourse, other discussions about where it should be, will be with investers. But important to understand: built it, anchor it and manage it, its different ways.
Q: What is main danger and protect of project?
A: Main danger its me and developer. No, i dont think that is some person or group of people can criticaly harm to project. Protect of project its any EVE player.
Q: When you planning finish project?
A: Its mostly huge project in EVE story, and iam dont have experience in lot of moments, so its hard to predict. If process will be acceptable, then in 2020 we decide to continue or close public project. Also, i believe in miracle.
Q: Why project so bad advertised?
A: I dont have time and resources for this. I agree with important of informing, but traditionaly its bread of people who dont understand product of advertising and i dont planning informing only good parts of project.
Q: Why not published technical part of project?
A: For safety reason. Lets imagine, that some of market speculators know which product need for project at some point and he can increase prices. Or some battle group will be know where is project building group working. Ofcourse, project dont have garanties of full information and material safety. API key of project processes, maybe, will be availaible to investers council.
First year report:
Main goal of this period is components BPO researching, finished by 80%.
Project have 160 BPO for structure components. 150 of them is researched on 9ME and 18 TE. 10 additional BPO for SMN are researched for 9ME and 14TE. For this moment researching are stoped. Also, project have more then 1000 BPC on structure components, different quality, for small manufacturing operations. Officialy project have 0 components in balance.
For researching infrastructure, which include subscription payment, character training, few POSes working and BPO buying project spent about 110 billion isk. There were several errors, which cost about 10 billions, including wrong management of characters skillpoints, to late knowledge of index for science works cost in system, error with industry interface when TQ have problems and lost of transport with POS.
Returned 1 996 000 000 isk of official donations, becouse not formulated mechanism of how say thanks. Returned 4 000 000 000 of loan.
Minimal number of used component for structures in all EVE: 623 938 (29.04.2016-29.04.2017). Maximum UPK components needed: 1 236 000.
Cost of all components: about 100 trillion isk (01.06.2017, based on Jita price). When UPK was announced (29.04.2016), all components cost more then 200 trillions. Estimated minimum cost of components manufacturing: about 80 trillions (01.06.2017) Cost of components can little reduce when moon mining will be deployed.
Developer decrease runs number of UPK BPC from 2 to 1.
Holy fullerite - Focused expedition of Prospect ships, which harvest reach fullerite gas in Thera connections. This project is still the main source of maintaining the functionality of UPKt and covers 90% of all costs.
Thera mining covenant - Stoped, becouse developer confiscate Rorqual, which planning use for ore compression in Thera.
Shattered wormholes researching - Project for researching mining potential of shattered wormholes. Finished.
Lazy Jabba league - Experimental project of mining in shattered wormholes using Rorquals. Amount of mined is not much for now, becouse of technical and money problems of realisation.
