Yesterday afternoon was by far the longest time I’ve spent in-game for quite some time. Its been on my mind now for quite many months as to what to decide to do with the Large Research Tower I used for Blueprint Research. All of my original load of Blueprint Research was completed months ago. But I just kept the tower fully fueled month after month with no research jobs in case I returned and had a new project to make use of it. Yesterday I decided to just go ahead and take it all down regardless of what changes is coming to EVE in next few months.
The plan was to schedule to remove the tower when I had some time off from RL work to do so and yesterday I did. I had only logged in to trim down the tower and remove some the Gun Defenses and maybe remove some unused labs. But in the process of removing a few structures I figured why not go ahead and remove the whole thing while I’m at it to save time.
Took me somewhere between 4-6 hours constantly warping back and forth to and from warp point to all the various structures to slowly offline, unanchor and remove each structure. It’s a pain in the ass to slow boat to every structure around the POS shield to remove them. Would sure have been nice to have something like a remote POS Tractor Beam to pull in all the unanchored structures once offline towards the tower.
But anyway the Large Research POS Tower is now gone from space. Anything that wasn’t a POS Module I put up for sale including all the remaining stock of Fuel Blocks, Charters and Ammo. I’m finally glad that the tower is now gone and that saves from burning fuel as well having to make a batch of Fuel Block monthly.
Currently I’m not really playing any other MMO games, just nothing fancy my gaming style at the moment. But there are some other games later in the year that might fancy my interest. Still unusual not to have something interesting to play. For the most part I’m just enjoying spending more time doing RL stuff for the moment and enjoying the downtime. I’ll be back blogging about something for sure and it may not exactly be EVE Online necessarily. This blog has changed many time over the years to cater to whatever game fancy my interest or focus as my mood changes over time as a MMO gamer. So I’m sure I’ll be back. Both my game subscription (2) officially runs out on May 12th. For now I can slowly exit the universe and fully enjoy my downtime. Don’t expect much from around here.
This makes my 994th Blog Post.

Haven’t really been up to all that much when it comes to New Eden. For the moment life just have my mind on other things in real life for the most part other than life in Eden. On entering New Eden, even if I could try to do things, I really don’t have much desire to overall. Overall the main reason for entering New Eden is to continue to keep my Research POS fueled and online.
Occasionally just around to make enough supply of Fuel Blocks for monthly supply or picking up a few materials to make to run a batch of Fuel Blocks. Once that’s done, I just don’t feel motivated to do much or contribute to New Eden Economy. I still have things on Market Order sell, but that’s not too much a concern.
Haven’t really run any real research at the POS in months, yet I just keep it fueled month after month. I did just throw some already researched Blueprints in a few slot over a month ago so to feel it’s not entirely a waste. But really, if the research tower wasn’t active, I could just not log in at all. May be even suspend my account.
I made another months worth of fuel a few days ago. It wasn’t too hard having had a good inventory supply of Ice Fuel on hand bought long ago. Yet that keeps costing me ISK as I could have sold all that fuel material. But at this point none of that matters all that much. Have more than enough ISK to keep the tower fully fueled for years. If it wasn’t so much of a pain to take down the POS tower could have likely done it long ago.
But been giving it some more thought lately and maybe I just take some time and take down the Research POS sometime in the next month. Then it won’t matter much if I don’t log in for a long time.
Traders and Market players love to be vague about what they are doing and their plans. So do your own reading if you want if your more curious, its pretty short just all 2 short pages of chatter and though here. That’s Mynnna there giving feedback, AKA: Corestwo for those who not Traders, not Power Traders and don’t engage in Trader & Market stuff, or related stuff or don’t hang out in the Traders Lounge. Corestwo might be a Goon and that can irk people, but he usually and quite often have quite good analysis. Though I’m more than sure he does his fair share of Market Manipulation as well. Traders do that kind of stuff with Billions to be made.
But if you want to make Money on the Patch changes ahead, might be worth your time to read. Jester as well had a good analysis a few post back on his blog about the Battlecruiser changes from his perspective. So all worth reading and considered.
What you decide to do is well your own business… ISK wise!
Change in about 2-3 weeks. Go out and buy some BC’s and buy some more 🙂
CCP Seagull responds and try’s to clarify CCP’s position on the POS System threadnaught. Took 2355 comment postings to get a clarification. What took them so long.
Will have to wait till late February to get any future plans on the system. I don’t really have high hopes CCP can jump that high a bar and deliver an awesome system that would likely be spread out over several expansions. It would be a huge task to undertake and complete no less.
