When I sell my toons I usually pay the $20 fee also which is equal to ONE plex. Implants are 100m max. No need for charisma implant.

i want to create an alt account but i want to have same video, audio and generals settings, also same windows size and shit. is there any way i can copy configuration from one acc to another ? thats possible in WoW to copy all hotkeys and stuff.
On another topic I started using Red Frog Freight since some of my manufacturing jobs require a huge amount of cargo...best thing since sliced bread! Within a couple months I should have the skills to fly a freighter myself but until then this is a boon to my endeavors!

Not that Red Frog is expensive, but it's... slow. I can't afford to wait 1 or 2 or 3 days to get my stuff transported. I can't have billions of ISK locked in a station somewhere for days because the frogs are too busy to pick it up.
Nothing personal against them, they are as fast as a courier contracts can go, but it's just not fast enough.

Agreed. ___ Frog Freight is really nice. I forget which one it was, but their expedited service was pretty damn impressive. Just keep in mind there's more than just Red.
Interested in or have questions about EVE Online? Send me a message!

Again, they are probably the best courier service, it's just that it's always better to have your own freighter.
By the way, there is a skill change coming with the summer expansion: the freighter's main skill will be Advanced Spaceship Command on 5, and the racial industrial will be secondary and it will be required only on level 3. But if you train it now you will still have it when the change hits.

Well I'm gonna be busy for a while lol....
Just bought 76 BPC of five run battlecruisers. If I had 23.6b upfront I could have it done in just over 8 days with all my manufacturing slots running...but I don't hehehe.
I never understood why some tycoons went to the forums for start up money but now I do, as an Industrialist you have very little liquid ISK, everything is tied up in assets and running costs. I started my Indy toon with 5b ISK to cover everything, now she is down to 1b with 7b floating in various things. Sure I could get 8b in ISK but then I'd have to stop everything and spend a rather lengthy time consolidating everything meanwhile profits would stop completely.
But god this is fun! If all runs fine and prices don't fluctuate for the worse I am looking at pocketing 2.5 - 3b, or worst case I go belly up and I start again lol.
And yes...I am spending as much time if not more in spreadhseets, a couple programs and websites. Simply what it takes to be successful in this game (on the industrial side).

I have always loved the industrial side of the game. So much thinking and planning involved.
How long does it take to train the skills for the industrial side of the game ?
I prefer trading but the competition in my preferred region and station has increased significantly, and I've made only 500m for the past week, compared to the average 1-1.5b/week a month ago, and I had to actually work hard for these 500m...

Basic manufacturing would need the following:
Production Efficiency V
Mass Production V
Advanced Mass Production IV (this'll get you 10 manufacturing slots)
Supply Chain Management at around III
That's for basic T1 stuff, which is what I am doing at the moment, plenty of profit if you do your homework which I assume you do if you trade a lot. I also assume you have decent Trade skills such as Accounting and Broker Relation's along with the skills for however many buy / sell orders you may need. Depending on how much capital you have it might be worth it to work of BPCs since most T1 BPOs need a bit of research to be worthwhile and they can be expensive to buy.
After I finish my trading / freighter skills I'll be working on science for operating my own POS for research / copying / invention.

im currently in minmatar militia.
-where can i exhcange loyality points ?
-what can i buy for them ? i heard battleships even
-where can i sell them without contracting and hauling them to jita ? (i dont rly know how to do this yet so i rather sell it by myself somewhere close)
If you're in the Minmatar militia, I wouldn't advise going anywhere near Jita, unless you're planning to do it on an alt account.
You'll be looking for TLF (Tribal Liberation Force) stations, the LP stores sell a range of things from implants and modules right up to entire ship hulls. Your best places to sell them would be Rens and Dodixie, the Minmatar and Gallente market hubs.
I asked this several pages back, then we got a crap ton of posts in and the whole discussion got lost. Fanfest in 2 months, who's going?
I'd have to argue about each individual aspect of the game being boring, some things are plain fun for me like exploration / WH and small scale PVP.

OK enough with the waiting...LOL, I made my 2 month old main account as industrial and I bought character from character bazaar for 12.5 bill, 50 mill SP + annual remap rdy +2 bonus remap + 277k unallocated SP + (+4) all implants and pvp focused skill hardwiring +free resculputre + pvp focused can fly SB/Black ops/BC/BS/Tengu/Marad...pretty good deal imo, I was checking the forums like a Hawk for the past 2 weeks till I jumped on this.

Is doing Planetary Interaction on alts worth it? (on the characters on the other two character slots on your account) I mean, starting PI requires very little learning and you don't have to learn anything else after a few basic skills, so you can focus on combat skills or whatever on your main. Hauling large amounts of goods won't be a problem as you can use your main for that.
I mean if I once learn the PI skills on my alt characters on my 3 accounts (3 characters), is it possible to earn considerable amount of ISK "for free" by this way? It of course requires a lot of management, but in the end you don't have to check your planets every day. I'd use the ISK to cover all the running costs on my mains, so I don't have to buy PLEX with IRL money and sell it for ISK in addition to three subscriptions. I guess this wouldn't be a long time goal, just as long as I'm able to run lvl 4's by myself, which would take several months to learn everything to lvl 5.
