i am trying to install 10 jobs each on 2 different characters in one pos, but it's saying TOO COMPLICATED, is there a corporate cap on research per pos?

what i am doing wrong? Both characters are CEO and Director.

also, i am not able to install job from station in system and i DO have scientific networking skill, because i've done this before in null.

does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

1. I'm assuming you have the BPOs in the corp hangars in the station, in the same system as the POS.

2. I'm assuming you have the skill to run 10 jobs.


Make sure you don't have 10 jobs running (including personal) already. If you don't, you likely had one or more corp jobs in a previous corp that were not yet delivered. You can ask someone in that corp to deliver, or petition CCP.

Edit -- the only real "cap" on corporate research is whether or not the slots are full. If they're full, then you just go into queue (same as in NPC stations)

if there is, it is WELL above 20

my 3 research capable chars(plus Fran) put something like 33-34 jobs in the labs alone
10-13 copies(usually 10, unless they are going to complete shortly after I goto bed, i'll toss 2 or 3 more from another char on)
20 invention
if I get bored, i'll toss a couple ME/PE on


either you are trying to run it to a location that doesn't have the necessary parts(empty hangers confuse the hell out of it)
parts are in the wrong location(invention stuff goes in the lab)
or you hit your personal limit

I've run 132 jobs on the same pos for months. You're doing something wrong, it's definitely not capped at 20.

It's your skills.

The too complicated message is what you get when you try to install jobs beyond what your skills can handle. Maybe you were trying to install more than 10 jobs with a single character (and were skilled only for 10 slots - which is fairly normal)

Ok, i posted last night after i had set this pos up, and had been trying very frustrated to get this running.

Here's the setup. I have 5 Labs, and 1 advanced lab.

I have 1 account with 2 characters that both can run 10 jobs EACH.

I setup 10 corp jobs in 2 of the labs.

i log to the other character, (which i just bought from the bazaar) I check personal, public, and corporation jobs and the only jobs on character 2 are the ones from character 1, so unless i have jobs from a previous corp as someone said, i have no jobs running, but i assume it would say that in the Science and Indy tab. it still says i have 10/10 max jobs available.

both toons have director roles. i have not changed any of the mobile lab settings to anything crazy.

So do you guys think this character may have jobs unfinished from the previous owner?

or is there a per account cap for jobs, because i'm still getting the TOO COMPLICATED message, which is total bs, because i have not been able to install one research job on this toon.

i've also checked on toon 2's jobs with settings spanning the entire universe and nothing shows up.

petition submitted, i honestly cannot see any other explanation other than the previous owner has jobs still running in his previous corp

Confirmed that the person that sold me this character left 10 jobs concurrent with his corp. Contacted CEO and CEO said he was "not in the region" to end the job, then promptly logged off.

I am adding to my petition for some sort of action be taken as this toon was purchased for the sole purpose of RESEARCH, as it is a RESEARCH toon. I see this as a scam. He expected to get his isk AND finish his corp jobs??? what a ****.

Caveat emptor ... as always. Though it's odd that you do not see the jobs running and/or that the jobs are not cancelled on character transfer (which is probably how these things should be).

Best of luck.

Can't see the corp jobs anymore, since the toon's not in the corp they're running for. Corp jobs run til they're done since the BPOs are considered corp assets (regardless of the "real owner" of the BPOs)

Devils advocate -- Not being in region is feasible, and might've just caught the CEO at a bad time.

EvE player -- Sold toon is/was an alt of the corp CEO.

Either way, CCP should be able to fix things.

What a great scam, sell research toon locked into long term research.YARRRR!!

I'd definitely petition it.

Yep, just petition - CCP have sorted the same problem for me on two different characters purchased in the bazaar, no issues.

@ devils advocate- yeah i know it's a reasonable thing he said, but as soon as i asked he logged off. seemed fishy

I sent a evemail saying i reported it to ccp, then suddenly 6 jobs were free'd up, but still, i'm missing 4 jobs that are STILL tied up. been 2 days since i first petitioned.

This issue with jobs running on previous corp has been in issue for years - I guess CCP is too focused on large scale PVP and how to get everyone into 0.0 to bother fixing it.

Usually it take a couple of days for a GM to fix it.
