Small Fish

Sometimes when you're trying to catch a big fish you only get a small one.

A Tengu and a Proteus were reported to be in Kurniainen.

The easiest way to catch them would be baiting so I undocked my dual-rep Dominix and started belt-ratting, However, there were no signs of the strategic cruisers.

What I saw instead was a Nemesis stealth bomber who first disappeared quickly but then reappeared closer and redboxed me.

I let my armour drop to about a half while firing up my MWD and approaching the bomber. Perhaps because he felt I would explode soon, he allowed me to get within overheated scram range and that was it.

Having run a lot of Magnetometric sites, I've accumulated a sizeable collection of T2 rig blueprints.

But I had no idea what they were worth and could not be arsed to check each one's price individually.

Thankfully, jEveAssets helped me with putting my collection into spreadsheet form.

First I ran a search of my assets:

Then I exported the results into CSV and imported them into Google Docs.

This forum post helped me figure with getting market prices via TypeId.

But of course they were all zeroes as I've been looking up blueprint prices. Fortunately, by looking at eve-central URLs I noticed that ItemTypeID=BlueprintTypeID-1, bingo!

Offset all TypeIds by -1, seems to work... Except jEveAssets has given me duplicate entries in cases where I had multiples of the same BPC. Had to clear that up manually.

Now, let's sum up those figures.


Now I need to find a way to calculate material costs without going insane.

I Suck At Trading

After the Alliance Tournament IX, I posted a small graph on Sleipnir's popularity, linking it to AT.

This is the price graph confirming it.

Funny thing is, it never came to me to use this as a trading idea while my corpmate Xerses0 has actually done that with apparently good results.
