Its been a bit busy managing Trade at various Inter-regional stations and busy times at Ardent Scientific Research Laboratory as well tinkering with Inventions and T2 production. So far have made steady progress with various invention jobs which has resulted in resulted in successfully producing a T2 blueprint copy or bpc. As well have had my share of Invention failures also.
At the moment scientific advancements has focused mainly on Invention of various ship equipment modules from the stockpile of bpc’s that the Copy Research Facility keeps churning out for Invention needs. Success at T2 ship invention jobs so far though only few in the beginning, haven’t resulted in much success as yet. But it’s still promising and I still have high hopes for the future as an Inventor. Thus I’ve spent some amount of time tinkering more with invention of ship equipment and modules vs ships at the moment to increase my base chances of successfully inventing something and feeling good about it.
Invention job attempts at inventing ship equipment modules progress or run much faster at just over and hour minimum to several hours vs ship invention jobs which can take at least 24 hrs on the smallest Frigate. That time increases in length of time the larger the ship for an invention job to several days.
So far steady progress using all lvl 4 skills in advance science on each and every Invention research job attempt.
Invention Job Attempts Total so far: 460
Invention Successes producing a T2 bpc: 229
Invention Failures: 231
Ship Invention Successes: 1 (Heron > Buzzard)
Invention Success %: 49.78
R&D & Invention cost so far: Several Hundred Million ISK 🙂
As of today decided to switch scientific work at the research lab and tinker around seeing if can invent a few T2 Frigate blueprints. Not too long ago also completed training on Frigate Construction V so at least can also build any Frigate Invented from a blueprint. So for now placed 5 Heron frigates bpc’s in the invention oven and will see what if anything comes out in the next 24 hrs. Can only hope my chances at inventing T2 ships have improved since last attempt.
From the T2 blueprint copies Invented, have produced several full batches of Mining Drones II (220), Ballistic Control System II (110), a batch of Scorch S (40) and a recently produced full batch of Scourge Fury Missiles (50K). Invention and producing T2 is quite a learning process and allot to learn. It’s also quite the competitive market trying to sell T2 equipment and modules on the market. However from the actual T2 equipment and modules I have produced from Invention, so far I was able to make a decent profit above all my invention and production cost in a very competitive T2 selling market.
So far all goes well making steady progress and research break through’s at Ardent Scientific Research Labs.
