so am i reading it right that with 5-7 planets you can feul a pos without ice? what will this do to ice prices?

No, you are not right. PI can only produce what was sold by NPC before.

And actually only need 3. 4 if you don't want to move stuff between planets
edit oops 2 plasma and gas/storm will give all materials

I think you are mistaken.

You can't produce Ice products with PI. And as far as I know you can't fuel a POS wiout ice products.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Not wrong. PI does not replace any ice-based fuels, only the five NPC-created fuels, and therefore should have NO effect on ice prices.

By themselves, you can get three of the five (Coolant, Oxygen and Mechanical Parts) with an advanced CC on Gas and Barren planets. You can also get Enriched Uranium from single planet if you have a Plasma available. Robotics ... I haven't yet figured how to produce from a single planet (the network has simply been too large, thus far - even with an elite CC) but technically some planets have the resources for it. We'll see.

Robotics can be produced by a Plasma planet. I use a Lava + Barren to make them.

There are (5) fuels produced by PI.

Oxygen - is going to be dirt cheap, a gas planet in hi-sec can easily keep (3) BIFs busy producing 960 x 3 per day. A large POS only uses 600/day.

Coolant - Large POS needs 192/day, a planet with a single AIF can only produce 120/day. Unless you import raws, you probably can't get more then 1 AIF running. So you'll need (2) planets to produce enough to feed a large POS.

Mech Parts - Large POS uses 120/day, a planet with a single AIF can produce 120/day.

Enriched Uranium - Large POS needs 96/day, planet with a single AIF can produce 120/day max. But you'll need a Plasma planet to do it on a single planet.

Robotics - Large POS only uses 24/day. But it's a P3 product and complex to produce. And it uses up Mechanical Parts.


Add all that up and you might get an idea of where prices will go after NPC goods are pulled from the market.
