I'm sure this questions has been asked millions of times, but I just can't seem to find an answer to it on the web, so I decided to make this topic.

I live in a class 5 WH and because of my teribad time zone, don't make a lot of sleeper ops, so I'm pretty much flat broke...

I don't want to make billions upon billions, but I hear gas harvesting is decent ISK. I have the skill to lv 5 and I have good scanning skills, what I don't have is knowledge of what sites to do and what to avoid. I hear sleepers tend to spawn, but I don't know how many or what kinds, so I was wondering is there a guide to these gas sites?

Thank you for the time.

Read a couple of these useful sites to get you started.

Oh, nice!

So I take can do the Vast sites (I think), but are they worth the time? What I mean to ask is, how much ISK is there in gas harvesting?

I'm sure you can work that out for yourself if you throw in Gas Harvester cycle times, amount of gas harvested every cycle, mineral cost, requirements listed on Polymer Reactions, POS fuel prices, Hybrid Polymer or simple C-gas prices on the market(s) etc.

Hmmm, I don't plan on creating the components myself, can't I simply harvest the gas and sell it.. just like that?

Yes, should you chose you can ship it out of wormhole and sell the raw gas.

Just make sure you have the required cargo space.

I think Biggles' advice is probably good advice, unless you're into the solo lifestyle (like me).

You can make a living from harvesting and selling / processing gas .... but it can be a pretty meagre existence. Income-wise you'd prolly do better with lvl4 missions than soloing low-mid level w-space ladar sites (my experience is up to vasts but not in C5/6 systems). Some ppl do live in C5/6s and limit their effort to gas/ore sites, and I understand some of those gas sites are 600M worth.

Using two harvester hurricanes and an orca I clear a vast in around an hour. Haven't done the maths but guess they're 100-120M@ ... once you get your stuff to empire to sell.
