Hello all, got a bit of a question for folks who enjoy playing the market in EVE. I have been starting to get into the industry side of things a bit and while I love the idea of making a station, fuel costs are clearly a big issue. Examining options it looks like an Azbel would be a solid middle ground for a station I could still rig for research and production, while having services that could attract income.
Clonebay and Market would be part of this of course, publicly open for all to use, but how could I attract you guys to use it? The region of space I am in has pretty much no trade hub (although Dodi is close, and Jita not too far) and while I don’t expect it to make bank, I would like to offset, or pay for the billions of isk a year in fuel costs.
I also have no plans on making this happen until I have a full year of fuel from the start (stations that enter low power frustrate me to no end.) But have already started the process of saving/investing to make this happen and want to research all factors to try and make things as successful as possible.
TL;DR: What’s needed in a player owned station that would get you to buy/sell there?
