Ok ... i`m a total newb at building stuff , and i recently bought some bpo sets . Now i have some questions :

1. what is the best racial POS type for manufacturing / research purpose in empire ? I suppose Caldari , cause ECM bonus and good CPU , right ?

2. it is better to copy the bpo`s and build from bpc`s to have more manufacture jobs in the same time therefore maximum profit possible while not keeping the pos slots empty and again minimizing pos fuel costs per module , right ?

3. it worth researching bpo`s from 0 me and 0 pe ? cause i see often researched bpo`s sold on npc price ...

also if you can link me a nice guide for manufacturers would be sweet .

Caldari has the most CPU, so it is best for hisec industry. It is very poor offensively, but an extremely good annoyance potential (EWAR-star, resist-star).

Minmatar is good for an extremely good offence (deathstar) but not as good industry potential. These are better for outside hisec.

It takes longer to copy than to manufacture. It is only better to copy for manufacturing if the BPO and the research slots would otherwise be idle, and if you only have one researched BPO.

If you buy BPC it depends on how much you pay whether it is profitable. Do the math.

I buy tons of BPC (billions worth) for invention, but I use my own BPO for manufacturing.

All contracts on the market are packaged, so they cannot ever have had a quote for research, so they are are all M.E. 0 and P.E. 0 (buy unresearched BPO from NPC, as you usually pay a premium buying from players, typically for transporting the BPO).

However, researched BPO are traded via contracts.

Typically I recommend on ammo BPO perfect M.E. and P.E. 60. I recommend M.E. 20 on other 10% base waste BPO. P.E. research is optional, but I usually do it to 10 and no more than 50. The exceptions being BPO which don't need research, or that would take longer to research than would save ISK or production time.

Example: Archon is perfect at M.E. 8, but that takes about a year to research, and only saves 1 unit of material over M.E. 2. It also takes about 40 days to research P.E. 1 but that will take several years of constant production to break-even on.

With ammo you make literally thousands of runs so saving 1 Tritanium per run or 1 second per run can make a difference, and it doesn't take long to research these BPO to high M.E. or high P.E.

You have to use your head before doing research, or you will just waste time.

have you looked in the forum resource sticky?

Just my 2 isk, but I prefer Amarr. It has better range (than minmatar, the other logical choice) and my favorite: it's not easy to simply run out of ammo. That in itself is worth something.

Minmatar has:

* More shield.
* More CPU for industry.
* Projectiles do multiple damage types that are harder to defend against.

Last time I did the math (everything is in that thread), projectiles can fire a long time.

Actually, nobody has ever confirmed that tower lasers don't burn crystals. Spending a week to test it isn't any fun.
