Hi everyone! I am interested in setting up a Small POS. I was thinking someything like: Small Caldari Tower, 4x Cruise Launchers, Moon Harvesting Array, Silo, Basic Refining array, Corp hanger. Would all of this fit/work on a tower this size? How much would it cost? The purpose of this tower would be to provide a mining/ratting base for a small corp. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Wow! Great posting ... but I am not here to do compliments Rolling Eyes
I am missing one big thing (also in the PDF created from this): What is the best place to position the POS structures?Question

In our (new) POS we made some obvious placing errors:
So for example when you jump back from the nearest belt to the corp hangar (0km range), then you have a big chance of bouncing away from the near tower and then you end up several km away from the hangar.
Or if jumping in from the nearest gate, you have a big chance of beeing stuck near the tower or its force field.

I guess other corps made simlar experiences and therefore a guide on "how to best place the different POS structures" would be really helpful and should be a part of a POS beginners guide...

However, there is one really bad error as the game is at the moment - You dont need any skills at all to refine ice, not even refining at level 1, let alone the 4 level 5s and level 4 that you have written in your guide.

Might want to edit that to save people from heading off down a (strictly unnecessary) 60 day train, like I did Wink


This is defentaly one that needs to be corrected. I found out by accident that I did not need the 60+ day training to refine Ice that I needed. I dont know how long it has been like this but it needs a fixing.

Currently the only way to do it is to form a one or two man corp (depending on your friend's standing) and act as a "sister" corp to your main corp. There is no provision for launching a POS for yourself outside of a corp.

Potentially stupid question here Razz

The guide mentions turrets and missile batteries but not how to load them. After anchoring my turret and bringing it online the only option I have is to access the ammo storage. Is that all there is too it? The turret says it can handle 10,000 charge but the storage only can handle like 3200 what am I missing here?

Is it possible to configure a reactor in a .5 system, assuming, of course, that I already have a tower anchored.

I do not want to anchor a moon mining module, simply process the materials.

I am also interested in the Feng-Shui of POS arrangement. I am spending a LOT of time rearranging the corp POS modules and guns, I put the structures too close to the tower, and I need to arrange things to be accessible from the Corp Hangar. I am putting some of the guns at the outside edge of the shield, is there any drawback to doing it this way?

Any tips, or guidelines would be appreciated.

Excellent guide, btw, thanks!

Wasn't it already stated that you could NOT have a POS in a 0.3 n higher. So Anchoring in a .5? no

You CAN operate a POS in highsec space (up to 0.7). i just have set up my small POS in 0.5 yesterday. the only thing you need is a faction standing of 5.0 or higher and you have to add the faction starbase charter to your fuel.

you can`t operate a moon harvesting module, but i can`t tell you about the reactor at the moment.

I think this guide needs some updating. Since the revelations patch the scanner is alot different. And i'm trying to survey a moon and i keep getting 2007.02.21 02:21:43 Notify Communication to probe(s) failed.

What does this mean and what do i do to get these probes to work? The moon i'm trying to survey is really small and hitting it with probes is almost impossible...a gunsight or guidance system or something would be nice.

You forget the sise of the missles, if you got like "Heavys" they take more cargo than light.

Try it out on a launcher of your own ship.
Take 2 lauchers with the same amout of cap. like 1.10
1 light and 1 heavy, you'll notice the difrence
------------------------------------------------
Now my question:Very Happy

I read here you can place a Starbase in a 0.5 (still save) but to do that I need 5.0 or higher standings with.....what?
The race of that space? Like it is in Galante space I need a standing of 5.0 (or higher) with the Galante? or the corperations in that space?

And thoes this Effectif standing only count's for the 1 who builds it? or the corperation for who your building it?

And if you wana build it in a 0.4 you don't need any standings? just the materials and a great location?

And (yes I'm anoyingLaughing) what is the best place when you choose your system? Astroidbelt? Moon? star?

Please help,
Dorpsgek, DGYARRRR!!

What I would like to see are specifics on how to set up corp hangers for various scenarios:

1. Allow regular corp members to view items in hangers but not be able to take them.
2. Allow regular corp members to take items in hangers but they are tracked.
3. Allow regular corp members to use BPO's to manufacture that BPO but not be able to take the BPO out of the corp hanger.
4. Setup a Hanger that will allow regular corp members to do research from only their personal corporate hanger and can't access other corp hangers nor other peoples BPO's that are being researched.
5. Setup a Hanger that will allow Alliance corp members to do research from only their Alliance corporate hanger and can't access other corp hangers nor other peoples BPO's that are being researched.

And any other scenario's you think could be helpful.

Can anyone tell me what the difference between a silo and general storage are? They seem to have the same capacity but the general st. has half the cpu needs. Can it still be linked up to moon harvester arrays?

Yeah i missed a fair few of these until i discovered that you can guarentee a hit everytime by double clicking slightly above and slightly to the side of the centre of the little moons. You'll find the spot with a few goes, then just make sure your ship has had time to turn to that direction Very Happy

You can't operate a reactor in space higher than 0.3.
As far I can see, the only reason you would place a POS in 0.5 space and higher is getting access to LAB slots.

I have a couple of questions:-

The Reaction Blueprints,

What are they called on the market?
Do they act like BPOs or more like BPC's? (do i need 1 or multiples?)

POS's

How much does Each Size of POS mine an Hour? 100 accross the board or is it by size?

First the flowers:
This is really a great thread that helps a lot! Thx very much!

But I still have one open question:
You can only harvest at moon in LowSec (<= 0.3) and it looks like you can also only do the reactions in LowSec.
But can you do the production (for example component production in the component assembly arrays) in HighSec or is this also required to be in LowSec?

I could not find any hint that this producton also needs to be in LowSec...
But to be sure I would need to test this and for this I first need the appropriate corp faction standing to create a HighSec POS (which takes a loooong time). So I would prefer to know this befoe I try to get this corp faction standing up to 5.0++...

Regards,
Zyrus

We are a corp with 20 members or so, many of them are quite noob and they lower sensibly our faction standing. We started instructing them about Storylines and COSMOS, but it looks like a there's a looong way to go, this way, to reach 5.0.

Are we doomed to wait months over months before anchoring our (already bought, btw) POS? Does, exist some shortcut to reach a little more quckly our objective?

Can you post your best practice for gaining faction standing quickly?

thanks for your help...

Three ways to solve this,

1/ Ask all but your highest standing member, to leave the corp for week, get that member to run a storyline mission and wait a few days for the corp standings to balance. Launch POS and get members to join again.

2/ Make a new corp, using member with the right standings and launch POS. Move members to new corp.

3/ Get a corp creator to make you a corp and launch the POS, they will leave the corp after fees have been paid.

Quick standings jumps can be gotten in cosmos areas and also in the three data centers for each race as well.

Note: You wont lose your POS if your standings go below the needed level, unless you unanchor it, just offline is ok.

I can operate a Refining Arrays and Assembley Arrays(Manufacturing) in space higher than 0.5?
