Thinking of PI

I own a few high sec factory planets. The reason why I have them is because I had gotten too lazy to update my low sec ones.

So one day I decided to pack up every planet in low sec and just put factory planets in my main system. It’s turning out pretty well, I make a slight profit by making the products, it’s not as big as the one I had in Low Sec but still, I don’t mind. It’s all about being lazy anyhow.

I now just buy the T1 mats in jita, or wherever it’s cheapest at the moment (I do this in bulk) and then I ship them over to my planets, converting them in T3, T4 stuff. Depending on what I feel like doing. It works pretty well and the times I make Robotics it spices up my little Robotics stock.

Having these planets made me think long and hard about Rubicon’s custom office change. And I still don’t know what I should do with it. My corporation isn’t that big, most of the time it’s just me and one other person that’s online. We do own a few accounts with the two of us and we both have a whole bunch of firepower at our command, but I doubt that we’ll be able to set up a few of our own POCOS.

I think I want to have a look and see what will turn out after Rubicon, will every office in our HQ’s space suddenly turn into POCOS, or will some of the interbus ones stay up. And if that happens, why?

Another thing that might stop me is the cost of a POCO, it’ll go up, that’s for sure, and despite the fact that theoretical taxes will pay it back within the month. There’s the off chance that you’ll be out of luck and get wardecced, meaning a termination of your POCO, among other things.

I guess we’ll just have to play the wait and see game.

Hmm, that reminds me, I have to fill up my planets for the week!
My little ‘Epithal’ I love you so much

  • If you're a small corporation with a hi sec CO, I wouldn't say there's an "off chance" you'll get wardecced, I'd say it's a virtual certainity.

    You can bet it'll be a big corp doing the wardeccing too. It won't cost them much to dec your small corp. They'll blow up your CO, replace it with their own but the far higher cost of wardeccing them to try taking it back won't be worth it.

  • I have often wondered about PI. What sort of profits do you make, how much time do you spend on it?

  • Well the smallish corp is in an alliance though, which we made to make sure Wardecs are a bit more expensive. We'll check what will happen, depending on who in the system decides to put up POCOS

  • I spend about half an hour a week on putting materials in my planets and taking the produced goods out. I haven't checked it the past few weeks due to the fact that I'm using the produced goods myself, but I think it was about 200-300m profit a month
