Manufacturing, not Murder, is my Motto

Just to set the record straight, the PvP engagement that resulted in my first ever PvP kill in 4.75 years of EVE Online does not mean I have gone to the dark side. My taste for blood is just about where it was before the event. Violence is sometimes necessary but still just as distasteful to my carebear sensibilities.

To prove that no universal constants have been reset, I give you these two images to ponder.

This represents a new step in my manufacturing education. Up until now, I've not had a reason to build a capital ship. Life in a wormhole with HBHI gives me one. And no, I won't be flying it. That will be the job of our fleet commander. I'm just going to admire my handiwork from afar.

Fly Careful


  1. Cool - I have not as yet tried to build a Capital Ship. Something else to add to the long list of things to do at least once in game...

  2. The logistics of building a cap in a lower end WH is brutal - kudos for doing it. We have done it and gave up on the mining. Eventually we bought the components and shuttled them in an endless stream of Iterons, supported by freighters outside and spotters along the way. It was weeks of all-hands-on-deck work, not something I want to do again. But then, "we build caps in WHs and do these other things not because they are easy but because they are hard". Congrats mate.

    1. Thanks splatus! I have to say this is most certainly a corp effort and we also took the component route with endless streams of cargo ships. And by we, I mean I should give credit where credit is due and state that "we" means our CEO and our FC for the most part. I'm not sure how much time they spent doing it but I think it was probably a week's worth of evenings. I only ran recon for one night of this. It is certainly an undertaking, especially knowing the ship will never leave the hole, but we are very much looking forward to having it available.


Be civil, be responsible and most of all be kind. I will not tolerate poor form. There will be no James Hooks here. We are all better than that.
