After 5 years working on this program, I figured the time has come for an official thread for EVETycoon. I'll do my best to maintain it however, the best way to contact me is still via in-game E-mail or via normal E-mail at the website listed below.

EVETycoon 3.2.2 is the current version

What is EVETycoon?

EVETycoon is a standalone EVE marketing program designed to run under Windows XP-7. Using EVE's Marketlog export feature, EVETycoon gives the user the most current and accurate information on the regional market allowing them to make accurate and informed decisions on their trading. At the heart of EVETycoon is a virtual reprocessor which allows the user to simulate reprocessing of any item in on the EVE market and get an instant comparison of the retail and mineral sales potential. While primarily designed for the dealer in scrap, EVETycoon's features extend it's usefulness to the retail trader as well as any industrialist who's looking to maximize their building profits. Even mission runners will find it's reprocessing/valuation tools valuable as it will quickly tell you whether you should sell your loot directly or reprocess them and sell the minerals.

Features:

  • Self-contained. The only requirement to run ET3 is Internet Explorer 6 or above. (ET3 now uses web based help files via an embedded IE browser.)
    No web-based pricing sources. EVETycoon ONLY uses exports from the EVE client so you know they're current and accurate.
  • NO MANDATORY API - EVETycoon does include character and corp wallet modules which do require the full API key however, use of those modules is entirely optional. None of it's marketing or reprocessing abilities require any API key.


Modules:

  • Market Overview - Regional pricing and volume information on all components and minerals as well as graphing features to help you quickly spot potential future shortcoming in the component/mineral market.
  • Virtual Reprocessor - Perform a virtual reprocess on any item in the game and see the current value of it's mineral components.
  • Multi-Reprocessor - Load and save lists of ores or items to be reprocessed/refined and get current pricing information.
  • My Orders/Corporation Orders - Profit analysis and graphing of your buy and sell orders. Find out which of your trades are the most profitable.
  • Market Analyzer - Thinking about trading in an item? The Market Analyzer will tell you if it's profitable to retail or reprocess the item.
  • Profit Finder - Export multiple items from the EVE market and analyze them all at once for potential profits. Profit finder helps you sort through hundreds of items on the market and spot those that are virtually guaranteed to make isk.
  • Corporation/Character Accounting - Standard accounting information with graphing and unique perspectives into your best customers and your best performing stations.
  • Mineral Calculator - Feed blueprint information or mineral stockpile amounts in and get instant mineral/component pricing information. Save and load calculations to determine if it's more profitable to sell the minerals or build the item.
  • Export File Management - Delete and archive old marketlog exports with the click of a button.
  • EMM EVE Marketlog Manager - A standalone automated program included with the first version of ET that scans your marketlog exports and keeps ONLY the most current copy, archiving or deleting old copies. Essential for reducing load times on any program that accesses marketlog information.

Could you elaborate on this please? Is the browser embedded within the program? Does the user even realize that it's a browser providing the help files?

I tried to answer my question by viewing your screenshots but I didn't find anything that looked like "Help".

You merely need a copy of IE 6+ installed somewhere on your system. It embeds a web browser within itself to view online help files. The user might guess it's a browser but it's only set to go to it's own help files. If you couldn't spot it then I'm guessing I did a fair job of integrating it into the program. It's this one:

Just a note. Installed EveTycoon on a Windows 7 PC. Install did not cause any problems. Enter my API key (full). Press get wallet transactions and now I get the following error. An Unexpected error has occured. Please report error:101: """ is not validate integer value.

If I now start EveTycoon I now always get the error.

Yep, this has to do with CCP borking the API CSV exports and not fixing them.

If you go back to my website I just posted how to fix this until CCP decides if they're going to fix their screw up or not.

Ah, you're right, it is nicely integrated. Good work!

EVETycoon 3.1.2 released

This is a patch that will hopefully work around CCP's recent destruction of the CSV WalletJournal exports from the API and keep ET from crashing.

Also added is a new retail profit margin display to the Market Analyzer. This little feature came about as I was browsing through the local rig market. I got to wondering how much isk these rig manufacturers were actually making. This feature takes the lowest regional seller's price, subtracts the average price of what it would cost you to buy the components to build an item and then tells you how much profit you'd make if you sold it at that low price.

Want to know just how tight the profit margins are on a BS? This will give you a good idea.

NOTE: This is not a perfect solution to determine this since this is based on the reprocessed value, not the construction value. It may cost more or less to actually build the item. To find out exactly, use ET's Mineral Calculator to find out what your specific blueprint will cost you to build the item.

But, for things like T1 ships, rigs and T1 modules, this little addition will quickly show you which items might be the profitable to manufacture and sell.
