Hot Trade in Highsec

Planetary resources are a somewhat passive source of income. Once you have a planetside mining system in place you can set the mining cycles for a length of time that suits your gaming schedule. I set mine on a 24 hour cycle since I try to sign on once a day. With full planetary mining skills and five planets going in highsec this nets me about 16mil ISK per cycle. Thats 480,000,000 ISK per month. I am currently mining a single resource on all of my planets and producing a processed material for sale.

Topava Says, "Reactive metals are doing well in the Jita market. If you are a producer this can pay off very well. Condensed Scordite and Veldspar are selling well for those of you who like to mine in highsec. It pays to fly the big ships, get that Hulk ASAP and you will reap the benefits in no time."

Real Money Profit From EVE Online

Before you get excited or call BS, let me qualify the title of this post. I do make a real money profit from playing Eve Online. Are you ready for the shocking truth...I make about $15 - $20 per month to my PayPal account. Don't scoff, I love this game and love it even more because I get paid to play. Let me break it down for you so you can play for free just like me.

I pay my subscription with ISK that I earn from mining and trading or with the profit from this blog.
I publish this blog and advertise a game code site called Shattered Crystal.
I get traffic to this blog with meaningful content and ISK giveaways.
People buy their ETC's through my site link and I get a commission for the sale.

I don't make much but I can pay for my website and have a little left over at the end of the year. If you are interested in trying Shattered Crystal please follow the link below for more details:

Minecraft Whilst Mining Ice

One of our new hobbies is playing Minecraft by Mojang. Visit the Minecraft Website to check it out. Playing Minecraft is a great way to spend those countless hours mining ice ore. The long mining cycles for ice make it ideal for a side-game such as Minecraft. The game is still in beta but is expected to be released this November!

Minecraft aside most of our efforts have been going into planetary mining with a focus on processed materials, namely reactive metals. We are currently making about 30 million ISK per day transporting and selling our product to the Jita Market.

The State of Jita Trade

We used to make boat loads of ISK daytrading ice products in Jita, do you remember those days? It was a few minutes of work setting up the buy and sell orders and a little good timing and luck and BAM 100 million ISK! Well as most traders are aware, the game has changed since the Dominion expansion blew that strategy out of the verse. Between the lack of player owed stations in null sec. and POS fuels being mined on every planet you can shake a stick at there aren’t the huge margins to profit from where ice is concerned. Sure you can get lucky and make 10 or 15 million ISK but the time and effort make it almost unbearable for so little return. We have shifted our attention to Planetary Resources, namely Plasmoids. Diversification is always a good strategy but we wanted to see just how much the market would bear so for now all we produce are Plasmoids. Now that someone was kind enough to point out that double clicking makes Planetary Interaction so much faster we are pulling in about 50 million isk per day running mains and alts. This rate will increase as each of our miners increase in skill so there’s no telling how many Plasmoids we will be dumping into the market.

If you are a new player with questions or an experienced player with suggestions please feel free to contact Topava in game.

Jita Trade

The market has settled enough from the Dominion expansion to allow some steady trading. Ice products have dropped in price and trade volume but the supply and demand is leveling out. Dominion brought about some serious changes to the consumption rate of oxygen isotopes due to changes in sovereignty requirements for 0.0 space. The margins for oxygen isotopes and nitrogen isotopes are holding steady.

Some traders are speculating that Tritanium prices will drop with the new expansion in June. If anything, this kind of speculation will influence the market regardless of the impending effects of an expansion so tread carefully when trading minerals.

Topava says, “We are currently trading in oxygen isotopes, with a margin of about 17 isk per unit. We are also trading Zydrine with a margin of about 50 isk per unit. These two items work well due to high trade volume. Always remember to check the market data and see how much of a product is moving.”

M.U.L.E. Welcome to Planet Irata

Written by David Savedge

Back in the 1980’s I spent countless hours sitting in front of my Commodore 64 playing the latest and greatest games available. Even though technology spins past me faster than I could have ever imagined back then, I find myself wishing for the good ol’ days. One of my favorite games from that time was M.U.L.E. Mule was a groundbreaking game that paved the way to where we are now in games like Eve Online. Mule had all the hallmarks of a true classic... balance, depth, and playability. I miss that game and those days when a rainy day was a true gift. Well...the wait is over!!!! M.U.L.E. has been re-mastered! The project is being spearheaded by the daughter of Dani Bunten one of the original developers. Please visit their website and give this great classic a try!

Here is the cover art from the original game.

Play Eve Online for Free...Kinda

Caution!! Due to the upcoming Dominion expansion the formula presented here may not be viable. Ice products could be severly effected by the changes brought about by Dominion.  Care should always be taken when trading.

Playing Eve for free has never been so easy. By easy I mean putting a little time into earning enough ISK to buy a PLEX on the market. I will assume you already know what a PLEX is, if not go here. The hard way to play Eve for free is grinding missions, ratting, mining, and spending countless hours in other ways to earn your ISK. This is a noble approach but wouldn’t you rather spend your game time differently? All you have to do is spend a little real money and buy a couple of GTC’s. For those of you who claim you can’t afford it well I’m sorry, maybe you could skip a month of game subscription and then buy the GTC, then you are set for life. Give up a little time or money now and save bundles in the long run. Ok enough preamble...this is how we do it!

Buy a 60 day GTC from Deep Space Supply or Shattered Crystal

To convert the GTC into ISK in game do as follows:
Log into the game and select the pilot you wish to use.
Once you are logged on and in a station press esc. and click the convert ETC (Eve Time Code) button located on the lower left edge of the window.
Follow the prompts and enter your code.
Close the window and then open your pilot’s hangar cargo bay to reveal two 30 day PLEX.
Now you can sell them to another player on the market.

To convert the GTC into ISK in the Eve Forum go here.

Now that you have a pile of ISK, transfer it to an alternate character located in Jita 4/4.
Save half in reserve, about 250mil at current prices.
Open the market window and bring up ice products.
Do your research and pick, for example, Oxygen Isotopes. Place a buy order for as much as you can afford from your remaining ISK then once the order is filled sell your oxygen for a nice profit. For more on ice trading visit here. Once you have clawed your way to your first Billion ISK you will be able to make enough to buy plenty of PLEX’s and play for free!

Please play responsibly and always do your homework.

Here is a comment from one of our readers. We had to edit some profanity before publishing.

Wow great idea, get people to invest in ice products when ice is about to go through the sh***r after dominion. Should think a bit farther ahead.

Thank you for your comment. We may all need to rethink our approach to the Eve economy and the advice on this blog is simply opinion and based in real time. What may work today might be gone tomorrow. All trade should be researched completely before any purchase is made. That being said we agree in part with our well spoken comrade, Minerpewpew. Ice products will certainly be in flux but as to the long term outcome only time will tell.
