Big Announcements

May was a very busy month personally, but I have a few announcements to make.  This should be reasonably brief.

First, I'd like to announce that Blake Armitage from and myself have started an industry collaboration   In an effort to burn some of his BPC back-stock, we're teaming up to churn out Jump Freighters: Anshars specifically.  He's supplying the blueprints for the T1/T2 build, and a lump of the cash, I am handling the rest.  So far, things are going pretty well, the first ship is due out right before the patch drops, which should net pretty handsomely.  We're looking to build 6 or so over the summer.  It will be interesting to post the accounting and post mortem.

To tie it together, more of my shiny new charts

SECOND announcement is that I have been accepted as a writer for  Still getting situated over there and trying to come up with some decent general-audience articles.  Looks like I will be collaborating on a bunch of 3rd-party-dev talk and some industry topics once Odyssey drops.  So keep your eyes peeled for me over there too.

Total galactic domination on track... now if I can convince my wife to let me code at home I might be able to put my graphs back on solid ground.

I will be interested to see how you manufacturing project goes. Once I am making enough in Trading I hope to either move into manufacturing or PI. Have to say, manufacturing with all its spreadsheets does draw me in!

well done on your position at

Are you not concerned with the potential price fluctuations for the JF builds? I'm timid to start building mine...

I would not be doing this project solo. The ISK leveraged and returns do not match well (IMO).

But I am insulating myself against price spikes by building the remainder of the Capacitors, Microprocessors, and Reactors. Otherwise, the market price should track the instantaneous-price of materials.

Big risk, but hopefully big rewards, post Odyssey
