Just checking something really - if you have a wormhole from hi-sec to unknown, you take a blockade runner in there, and plan to sit there for an hour or so farming a rich planet, am I right in thinking that your best bet is to only farm the raw materials, without processing them?

The reason I ask is because I *think* that the processors' cycle time of 30 minutes means that you're only going to get 20 units of a P1 material every half hour, regardless of how much P0 you're extracting. Am I right, or missing something?

I figure you get the P0 raw materials back into hi-sec and import them to a planet to process them to make the most of it, but I wait to be told otherwise and that I'm a mug and so on.

Cheers.

I don't think that with the cost of putting down an installation (both in isk and time spent) you will never ever get profitable in one hour. Let alone more profitable than alternative ventures.

Yeah I suppose with the cost of the structure it would be a bit daft, though the point was to get the extra raw materials to add to a production line in hi-sec rather than make a profit just off an hour's PI.

You get the right planet and the right hot spot and you can pull enough P0 to overload a lvl 1 link with one extractor.

So that being the case going in and "stealing" some Astrowhatevers that are only on temperate planets would be worth it. Only getting an hours worth ... probably not worth the cost of the CC.

Also, you come into my wormhole and try it you will find some bubbles, a heavy interdictor, and a few Tengus on your way out :P

If you get the minmatar Prowler Transport, you get 2 high slots. Cloak and core probe launcher. And up to 8.7k cargo with expanders and rigs.

So you could find a w-space, set up a PI for P1 or P2 production, let that run, and with a couple of trips get everything out.

Or, just leave a scanning alt in system, and bring the hauler in when you get a convenient link. Probably worth finding something with a static hisec link though...

I do exactly this with one character in a tengu and the other in a prowler. I have a little gypsy camp setup at a deep safe (4 GSCs), manage 5 planets, and farm sites in the static C4, access the static high sec when necessary.

Great for casual players.

You are correct on the cycle times, however if you are pulling LARGE amounts of P0, you can run more than one Processor off the your storage pin.

Saying that, I am not sure if its worth doing hit and run PI in wormholes. I just cant see any proffit in that (plus the risk of sitting in a WH).

I have been thinking of running an alt into a WH, dropping a CC and setting up a planet. Let it chug along for a few weeks while my guy stays cloaked up. Then collect all my goodies and scan down a way out.
