Isn’t She Pretty
It was no surprise that I spent most of yesterday evening flying my hulk around and mining, testing her out so to speak. Named after a rare gemstone, Painite, I couldn’t be happier. I have a pretty basic highsec fit on her, three modulated strip miner II’s, two mining laser upgrades, and a bunch of shields to boost her survivability as well as a survey scanner so I can go after the juiciest pieces of ore. Kasul did some probing and found a few sites for me to mine, so I headed that way and stretched my wings. What a HUGE difference from flying the retriever I’ve had this past little while. The amount of ore that the hulk coughs up compared to the retriever is a lot bigger then I thought it would be.
I’m continuing down my ‘crafter’ line in EVE on my main account, while my second account works the “pew pew” side of things. I’ve got refining, and production efficiency that I’d like to get completed – and then I discovered research. Without a POS (player owned structure) this avenue may as well be off limits for me because the line ups for this at stations is .. well. Lets just say I’m not that patient. David (as far as I know) is still working towards getting us a POS, so that may be solved in the future. It would be nice to have the skills to begin research once I’m able to, and I’m incredibly excited about trying this out. Of course I’ll update either here or on NomadicGamer about how it works out.
Now that the hulk has been invented and built, Kasul and I have our eyes set on other bps that may be profitable. Whether they pay off in the end or not time will tell, but it’s great to be working towards these things in the mean time. Makes the game a lot of fun, and nicely complex.
Time to get back to mining. Fly safe!
