Appropos of Nothing

My alt Korneilia finished up her basic Orca training with Industrial Command Ship IV and I pondered what to do with her next. There are many options available; scanning alt, jump freighter skills, combat skills, etc but I finally decided on trying out Planetary Interaction so to that end I bought all the relevant skills and they are set to start training in a couple days after High Speed Maneuvering IV which I put in the queue first.

When PI was announced I wanted dive into it on SISI and really become an expert but lack of time prevented that dedication. Even after PI was released I was too busy training Orca skills and no time to get online anyways. Since my schedule has improved slightly (i.e. 10-15 minutes here and there) I figured now would be a good time to dabble in it and see what its all about.

I'll probably start by setting up to make a single commodity lower in the industrial scale and work up from there, something like Robotics or Coolant that is used in POS fuel which there will always be demand for. If it works out and time permits I'll scale up from there. I'm not going to start anything until my skills are well done though as I don't want to have to waste time rebuilding installations.

In other skill training news, Kirith has less than 30 days left of Caldari Carrier V. And the supercarrier alt is 20 plus days in some level V skill or another, she has a few to do.


  1. Hey Kirith. Check out the Eve University Wiki on Planetary Interaction as a primer for you. Excellent read. Also, check out the YouTube video that they put out for single planet p3 setup as well as pos fuel production chain (4 videos total I believe) it'll give you the basics that you need to understand how PI works.

    Once you set up your networks maintaining them on 24 hours cycles is dead easy. Just bear in mind that once you set a timed cycle you cannot stop it, folks seem to fail to mention that in their tutorials.

    I would recommend Enriched Uranium. I've been using PI to make all my POS fuel and selling what is left over. Enriched Uranium seemed to be selling the best, so I tweaked my PI setup to make just enough POS fuel and max out Enriched Uranium. Been going well so far.

    Robotics was super cheap and IMHO not worth focusing on, but I could be wrong.

    Thanks for the update!

  3. I liked the EveU stuff well enough, but I find that RAGE Alliance's Documentation is better, IMO.

  4. Oh nice, thanks Magson. :)
