We’ve got a Corp wide PI program running and it’s getting to be some decent ISK for me, think I’ve been the largest contributor for the last three runs we’ve taken to market. I’ve got five planets running pulling the R0 resources and producing the P1 products which then gets put in the Corp hangar for further processing from other members with the final product taken to market every few weeks.

We were just getting rolling on the first run and I don’t remember what my ISK take home was but on run two my share was around 400mil and on our latest run my share was just over 550mil – I am looking at ways to increase this as it’s a solid passive income for the 15-20 minutes of work put in every few days, the easiest of which will be to train my Alt into PI and get him producing as well.

It was time to reassess and move my Planetary Interaction around so I tore everything down and after spending some time researching the area we’re currently in have set up a new PI Chain and am continuing to work with my RL brother.

I am looking at manufacturing some Nanite Repair Paste so I have geared all of my PI Colonies towards that goal and have asked my Bro to use a few of his Colonies to assist me with that PI Chain. For NRP you need three different PI Materials; Nanites, Gel-Matrix Biopaste, and Data Chips and I’ve worked the Chain out so that we can get it done using eight planets, it looks something like this:

We’ll see how this goes in the next few weeks…

Got into a myriad of activities the other night. Started out the night spending some time in the Inty Explorer wandering through some Systems in Great Wildlands and Scalding Pass, no epic finds but did scan down a few sites. Got caught up on my PI activities and moved some materials around to keep the PI flow going. Had the Astero delivered and got it on the market and then went about building a new Wolf to replace the one I lost.

After getting the Wolf built I hopped in, plotted a course home and started burning my way there… no matter where I’m at, High-Sec, Low-Sec, Null-Sec or W-Space, I’ve been diligent with practicing my travel techniques – Local Chat window is always open, when I come through a jump gate I’m holding cloak until I’ve taken a look at who and what are in the System. In Low and Null-Sec Systems if I see Neuts I’m working the D-Scanner to see if they’re close and what types of ships they’re in.

On my burn home I got into Offikatlin and saw two Neutrals in system, one was on gate and jumping but the other, Darryn Lowe, was still out there somewhere. The Offikatlin system has no stations or outposts so I held cloak, checked D-Scan at 360° and full range and popped a Prospect. I took a look at the Probe Scanner and saw that two of the Cosmic Anomalies in System were Ore Sites. I lowered the scan angle to 30° and took a look at the closer Ore Site, a Small Gneiss Deposit, and there he was – jumped to zero, hit approach, cycled the MWD once to close the distance, locked my target on the way in, got the Warp Scrambler on him once I was in range, hit the NOS next and then switched on the AutoCannons. I’m guessing he was AFK as it took a bit to get through his shield and he made no actions to get away, once his shield was done he melted pretty quickly.  I took my time to loot the wreck while I waited out my Weapons Timer and then finished my burn home.

Docked up and was getting ready to log for the night but then decided to take a quick look at the Star Map and lo and behold there was a little blue Cynosural Field dot only a few jumps away and Cyno’syndrome took hold!

I’ve messed around with Planetary Interaction a little bit in the last couple of months and have made some ISK with it. PI is a fairly simple way to make a decent passive income. But I’m looking to make a little more so I recently tore down my Colonies that were set up to produce Synthetic Synapses and am going to partner with my RL brother and build some Colonies and get to producing Robotics which seem to be a more profitable product overall.

PI takes some research and I recently found http://util.eveuniversity.org/PiBear/ which made my research for a Robotics set-up a little easier!

The Robotics chain looks like this:

Required raw (R0)Resources

Base Metals
Heavy Metals
Noble Metals
Non-CS Crystals

Producing (P1)Tier 1 Products

Chiral Structures
Precious Metals
Reactive Metals
Toxic Metals

Producing (P2)Tier 2 Products

Mechanical Parts
Consumer Electronics

Producing (P3)Tier 3 Product

Robotics

Robotics is attainable in a system near our home base and I’ve taken on building four of the Colonies we need for the chain.

Three of my four Colonies are Mining Complexes pulling the raw (R0)Resources with Extractors then routing through Launchpads into Processors and producing three of the (P1)Tier 1 Products we need.

My three mining complex planets:

Barren extracting (R0)Noble Metals to produce (P1)Precious Metals
Barren extracting (R0)Base Metals to produce (P1)Reactive Metals
Lava extracting (R0)Heavy Metals to produce (P1)Toxic Metals

My fourth planet in our Robotics chain is a Factory Complex built specifically to turn two of my (P1)Tier 1 Products into one of the (P2)Tier 2 Products we need for Robotics. It makes things a little easier as I’ve already got the Precious Metals and Reactive Metals in hand so with just a little transporting I’ve got the (P1) products transferred onto the planet and into the Advanced Processors producing our (P2)Mechanical Parts.

Barren Advanced Processor taking (P1)Precious Metals and (P1)Reactive Metals to produce (P2)Mechanical Parts

I leave all of my Products in a nearby station and then the brother takes over and is looking after the other parts of our Robotics chain.

I do have a fifth Mining Complex planet set up, this one is specifically set up to contribute to the Alliance PI chain.

The weekend saw some intent Alliance enterprise – we had a good meeting with a large portion of the Alliance in attendance and starting laying down the ground work towards making the Alliance some ISK. Lots of ideas about ways to do this and we’ll be employing a few of them. To get us started we’re setting up an Alliance wide Planetary Interaction chain that will get us producing some commodities.

After the meeting we went out on an Alliance Op and took down a couple of POCOs then I spent some time in the Inty Explorer and hit a few sites – didn’t get much though, it was pretty slim pickings.

Ran with another crew for part of Sunday and after a quick roam we went for a POS bash then I had a quick case of Cyno’syndrome before heading out to try to find a few more exploration sites – got a good haul and ended up with over 75 million in the hold, think that is likely my best explore yet but still no shiny item of epic’ness…
