However, as I have increased rate of production and number of parts constructed, I found my mineral needs much higher and in order to keep prices down, I needed to acquire minerals at a cheaper price using buy orders and putting orders in out of the way places to get better returns. The end result was that for months profits have been diverted into improving my mineral acquisition chain so that I don't have to wait for an Orca to build and sell before I set up the orders for the next build.
So now I am reaching that comfortable point where I can have two Orcas in production and buy the minerals for the next one. Yay me.
All of this to say, I don't have any money to buy more ships. Its all tied up in the reinvestment! I mean, my enterprise has netted me 2.7 billion ISK profit and I've not seen a dime of it on my combat character.
|I have none.|
The good news is that I don't need any more ships right now, I've still got a full hanger or two of good combat ships that fit the Aideron doctrines. But with 5 more capital BPOs to acquire just for the Orca library, things could be tight for a while.
