I’ve finally finished up JDC V and have had my Chimera built and waiting in my ship hangar for this occasion but now the issue is that there isn’t really too much point in fully fitting it out until EVE: Citadel is released and all the Capital Ship changes hit New Eden.

So be it… patience is golden – for now she’ll sit unrigged, get a few modules to help with some tank and be used primarily as a suitcase for move operations.

Took a closer look at what I’ll need to build a Chimera…

Total Quantity needed for a Zero ME Chimera build
Tritanium Pyerite Mexallon Isogen Nocxium Zydrine Megacyte
59,765,712 14,553,146 5,409,148 853,278 239,057 43,402 18,902

Initially this didn’t look too terrible but as I took a closer look at things it’s not as easy as I thought. The easier ones Tritanium, Pyerite, Mexallon, Isogen and Nocxium I can obtain from ore mined in High-Sec but my two issues will be with the Zydrine and Megacyte which if I want to get myself will have to be obtained from ore mined in Low-Sec and/or Null-Sec space and I’m not entirely sure if I want to delve that far into it. I’m doing the mining with an Alt, semi-afk, so maybe if I can find a quiet corner of Low/Null to mine in it won’t be too bad to move him out there and get him set up – we’ll see?

My current training focus is towards getting into a Carrier, specifically a Chimera, and since it’s going to be a fairly long train before I’ll even be able to sit in one I thought it would be a ‘fun’ project to try and build my own.

Well I won’t actually be building it I’ll be relying on the help of Corp/Alliance mates and some Alts. I do plan on mining all my own materials and have an Indy Alt that can do the actual build but will need help hauling all the stuff to where it will be built.

I’ve already got the project rolling…. have picked up a Chimera BPC pack and have started gathering ore/minerals in preparation. I had no idea how much stuff I would need so did some google’ing and found eve-smith which has a great Capital Ship Construction Tool. I used it to see how many minerals are needed for the Chimera and it’s not terrible.

I don’t think it will take that long to mine out all the ore I need for the build, I’m pretty confident I’ll have the Chimera finished well before I’m trained into it.
