Let me start by saying that this is a new alt that I just created, my main is a small time trader.

What I'm trying to figure out is what I can get started with in indy with this toon. I'm not particularly interest in just mining, I'm thinking of focusing more on production, or possibly research but I don't know anything about setting up a POS to start that since all the highsec slots are always booked.

So what's a good way for me to get into production? I've never really done it before in any serious manner.

Oh, and ammo.

Also, pick up some cheap BPCs on contracts, and cheap BPOs from NPC sell orders. Just pick them up, research them when you can, and keep them as assets.

Find a suitable station to set up in.

Get two haulers; a fast one, and a bulk one. And a frigate or destroyer fitted to move small valuables at high speed.

Get a corp and/or alliance that does industry, and has PoSes set up. Get your BPOs researched, and eventually work up standings to get access.

-first step : Tutorial ( Refere agent Production ) for obtain the basis
-2nd Step : Read Evelopedia
-Third Step : Read forum , look the collection of external tools ( list in stick post )
-Have a cashflow for start & mainting your products
-Planetary production no need a lot of money for this
-ammo ... tiny cashflow , less risk for a new producer .

skill in calc ;)

Research : Science section skill have more than 56m Sp if you want to produce all technologie with max skill ...a long long so long plan skill ,so

Hush you.

Ammo of course.

Ammo to get started.

After that, don't ask what to build. Don't ask where to sell. Don't ask what makes good money. To win in industry, you have to learn how to figure that stuff out yourself. The right answer today will be the wrong answer tomorrow. Anyone who has the knowledge is not going to share it on a public forum.

Calculate the material cost of BUYING MINERALS to manufacture the following items:

Multifrequency S
Multifrequency M
Multifrequency L

*note* Use your current production efficiency (Probably 0) and a ME of 0 in the calculations.

Next figure out what they are selling for at a local trade hub.

Can you make a profit?

I haven't checked on these in a while, but I believe at least one of them will make you a profit even with 0 skills. They won't sell fast enough to make you rich overnight, or even ever just selling these items, but I bet they will at least make a profit.

Once you figure out which one will make you a profit try manufacturing them. Oops, you can't manufacture them at the local trade hub because of the long queue lines! Try going a few jumps away with your minerals and manufacturing the items there.

*note* If you are buying your minerals outside of the trade hub, be sure to update your manufacturing costs with the new mineral costs.

Next when the items are done, try moving all of the completed products to the trade hub, and then selling the items. Check on it about once a day and make sure to update the prices to the cheapest available. That is, if you're still able to make a profit based on your costs...

This should get you an idea of what a small part of manufacturing can be like for an industrialist. Of course there are different parts of industry, but this should let you get a small taste of what an industrialist does without needing to invest your entire wallet nor your entire skill queue into the industrial field.

Find a corp which has a large number of researched BPO's and lets its members use them.

This mean initially you will not have to purchase any BPO/BPC's and will have access to a PoS. They should also be able to give help and advice
