*UPDATED*

The POS is now online and we have begun mass research. We have increased capacity to handle 90 ME slots, 90 PE slots, and 30 COPY slots. Remember, running bpo's through our POS means they will be researched up to 25% faster than a normal lab. There are currently approximately 24 hour queue times.

It is also completely safe due to the BPO's being always kept in an NPC station from the time you drop them off, to the time you pick them up. Employee's only have read access so the only security issue is me. Hence the reason I offer insurance on up to 90% of your bpo's npc value (conditions apply). To see the current queue status please click this link:

Current Research Queues (updated daily)

-----------------------------------------

I am running research labs in a Sinq Laison 0.5 system. We have the largest empire research setup available to the public in Eve.

Why are you doing this?
I decided to purchase a set of 4 battlecruiser bpoís last week. Just before purchase I decided to look for a few spare lab spaces. After checking 5 empire regions, I noticed that there wasnít a single lab available for at least 5-10 days. So, rather than queuing more projects, I decided to take action and create my own research empire. As business increases, so too, will my laboratory/factory status, and ultimately, more POSís may be deployed

What research services do you offer?

Available ME slots : 90 slots
Available PE slots : 90 slots
Available Copy slots : 30 slots


Price per slot is 3 million isk per week. Lets say the job finishes after 9 days. I wonít charge you 7 million isk, I will be charging you approximately 4 million isk for that job. So basically, it is calculated at 478,572 isk per day per slot. There is a 500k surcharge on bpo's that complete before the 1 week period is up.

In what way is your service different to all the others?
Customers can request collateral in isk up to a maximum of 90% of the blueprint's NPC value. Customers will be required to pay 0.3% interest / day on the collateral, which will be added to the research fee.

For example: On a 2 billion isk BPO, if you requested 1 billion isk collateral (or 50%) this would cost 3 million isk / day.

Who the hell are you?
I have 3 active accounts. My main on each account is Ricdic and Ricdics. Ricdic is a combat oriented pilot, while Ricdics has always had the industrial backbone. Ricdic has an alt (Crazy Bugger) who is a bank teller with the Eve Intergalactic Bank, dealing in billions of customerís isk every day. Both Ricdic and Ricdics have been playing over 2 years. The 3rd account has 3 research alts on it. All of them either have maxed out research skills, or are completing their research training now. This means being able to maximise the available jobs that can be run, as Ricdics is limited to only 10 research jobs at a time.

What if your POS goes boom?
I chose a large POS for this operation so that I could maximise defences and ensure that (in empire space) there would be little to no chance of the POS to become compromised. The POS being constructed in a 0.5 means customers donít need to go near low-sec, and nor do I. It also means that capital ships are not allowed in this space. Taking down my POS would require a lot of battleships for a very long time. I also chose a large pos as it gave me the option of loading up on lots of guns and defence. Due to remote research being possible anyway, most blueprints will be stored in a safe and cosy station anyway. In the very unlikely event of my 4 billion isk POS going boom, any customer losses incurred will be refunded in full.

Edit: Cleaned it up

What are the terms and conditions?
Your bpoís will be researched/copied at your request, for the precise duration/ME levels that you require of them. If you request for them to be pulled out prematurely, you will incur the full cost that you signed up for due to the labslot being unavailable to use until the cycle is up.

Completed BPO research/copy jobs will be escrowed to you in the event that you are offline/out of system. These escrows will have a 21 day timeframe and an evemail will also be sent to you to advise that your job is complete. Failure to contact me or claim the escrow within those 21 days may result in your bpo being liquidated if we cannot get in touch with you.

Do you handle production?
Initially I stated that I did do production, however this has been retracted so my focus can lie completely in research. I still have my production modules, however, so any production required can be handled on a case by case basis.

Do you have any future plans for expansion?
Due to current demand levels, I have already tripled output in the POS, and if levels continue to rise, I will place more POS's to maximise our abilities to meet client demands

Employment Opportunities
We are still looking for approx 5-10 employee's to join our ranks. Please check here if you are interested


Thanks for getting this far guys. I am sorry it was so long but I wanted to make it as transparent as possible. Orders can be placed either via evemail or here on the forums or convo of course. I am available quite often so give me a yell if you require further information

Employee's and customers can be found in the C-R-A channel in the game. Most of your questions (when I am unavailable) will be answerable by customers etc in there.

Hi,
I am interested in your service.
I have well several BPO's i want further research on.
I am thinking of using 9 ME slots if available
1-Chimera Carrier ME:2
2-Dragonfly Fighter ME:20 PE:10
3-Templar Fighter ME:20 PE:10
4-Einherji Fighter ME:20 PE:10
5-Firbolg Fighter ME:20 PE:10
6-Ferox BC ME:20
7-Ferox BC ME:20
8-Brutix BC ME:20
9-Brutix BC ME:20

The Fighters have some research already Me:5 PE:5 i think.

Also when these are done i will have others and might keep these 9 slots and others on and of for the next say 6 months.

Could you evemail me a quote for this kind of usage?

Thank you both for your requests. I will be online approximately 2 hours after downtime today, so will evemail you both at that time. I am increasing lab capacity to 20 mobile laboratories thereby giving 60 ME slots, 60 PE slots, and 20 COPY slots.

With both of the above posters, I will have approximately 15 slots still available, however characters are currently in training to support the extra demand.

Kind Regards,
Ricdics

James and McMillen I have evemailed you both, as well as others who have contacted me. Just an update for those who haven't sent evemails.

My other character Ricdic has high Gallente standings and is the ceo and 1 man owner of the new corp. This was in order to get the corp standings high enough to build the POS. I slated the POS to be deployed 1 DT after I created the corp. However this did not happen. I questioned CCP about it, and was advised that player standings will filter over to corp over roughly 3-5 days. So now unfortunately is the waiting game.

Waiting isn't an overly bad thing, as it gives me time to build the customer base to a point where all slots are being used (unused slots = lost income) Initially I will be deploying mobile lab's as demand increases. I will have a spare 10 on hand either way for immediate deployment if required, but until then they will be safely stored in a station or just anchored at the POS but offlined.

I have begun taking orders, and a few customers have already provided their blueprints and insurance has been paid to those people. I am removing the production aspect of my corporation. If people are interested in production, this can be done on a per person level, not an advertised service.

The final option which may be instated is insurance depreciation. Over time, long standing and long term customers (especially those with higher value bpo's in the corp) will be asked over time for certain percentages of insurance back. IE, Corp insures your 4 dread bpo's at 75% each. After 2 months of research, corp requests 5% of each dread bpo funds back.

If user doesnt oblige, we either reneg, or advise the customer that after his next batch is completed we will have to remove his bpo's due to the large amount of capital required to run this and return them to him in return for insurance funds etc.

This will be a case by case basis however, so please contact me if you feel you may be in the above category, and I can advise you of this based on your business with the corp.

Finally, customers who run ME slots with us will also be given discounts on PE and COPY slots. This will be to promote long term customers and try to allow as close as possible to maximum occupancy on the POS at all times.

Kind Regards

Current Update

We are expecting the POS to be completely deployed after this downtime or the next at the latest after much deliberations with CCP trying to get around this bug.

I have been taking orders and explaining setups to customers. Some have chosen to forego insurance and put an alt into the corporation to watch their bpo's and the internal processes, while some others have requested the insurance.

I put an order into a queued state once the bpo is recieved. While there might be 50 bpo's that I have organised with customers through evemails, none are good to go until they reach the recieved status.

Currently 18 bpo's are in the queue. Some of them are long-term blueprints. Current employee's have the ability to handle up to 35 bpo's and this is continually increasing as more employee's join our ranks and existing ones skill up.

Let me take this moment to mention that we are hiring. Please click

here for further information on signing your un-used alt characters up to become research agents with the corporation. With only 3 days of training on each alt, you can be off making money right away. For those willing to go higher in the training department, the income will be much greater.

Kind Regards, and I hope we get more work queued up. We expect to have our contractors running jobs in and out within hours of POS deployment. Please don't hesitate to contact me for further information.

Ricdics

edit: As of the unscheduled reboot, my standings have in fact been triggered. So I believe that with the next downtime in a few hours, the standings should be at a point where we are able to deploy the POS. Upon deployment, a screenshot will be shown that will a) show the POS and b) show the lab slots in action (with private details removed obviously).

Due to queues, customers have expressed willingness to pay more for their prints to be researched quicker. Therefore, I have released the business service.

Having a business service gives you these benefits:

1) Your BPO/S will only be handled by maximum skill researchers (meaning the maximum 25% research speed is reached)

2) Your BPO's will have their own queues. They are separate to the regular economy queues and as such you won't be stuck right at the back of them.

3) Ability to give a requested deadline. We will endeavour to meet these quota's

Business services will be charged at 6m a week (double the cost of an economy service). As of launch current estimated queue times:

Business Services - 1.5 days
Economy Services - 3-4 days

edit: Just wanted to explain, that 4 mobile labs will be dedicated to business customers. Economy customers will have 17 mobile labs dedicated to them. When the business labs are not required for business services, they will be used to reduce the economy queues.

Ricdics, I'm very interested in your research service. Iíve been batting around an idea for a large scale research project and I think with the help of your POS it could be really great. I have two quick questions for you though:

1) For what you say it sounds like the POS gets a faster research speed than empire, 25% faster to be exact. Is this added unto the 25% reduction from the Metallurgy skill? If so, how is it added? I.E. Do you get a total of 50% reduction in ME research, or do you get 25% off, then 25% off whatís left ( so it takes 62.5% of normal)?

2) On your research queue page you show there being Microwarpdrives in research until 12/8. Is that December 8th? Or is it just that my American month/day labeling is getting it all wrong, and itís actually August 12th?

My idea would involve somewhere in the range of 10-25 research slots for many weeks. I calculated it out and it would be approx. 450-900mil in profit for you, so Iíd love to talk it over in more detail ingame if possible.

Hey there.

1) Hypothetically, the speed would be a further 50% I believe, however that is assuming max metallurgy skills. Vast majority of my employee's are only just starting out as research agents, and my requirement to them is that they have to have metallurgy 3. This means they are sacrificing 10% of the speed. So at least right now, most employee's will only be 15% faster than an NPC station.

Having said that, this only applies to economy customers. Business customers will only have maximum metallurgy people working for them. Basically if you have metallurgy 5, check info on your bp and then calculate 75% of that and it will give the speed to research.

Sorry for the latest response, the POS is finally being anchored as we speak.

2) Yes I am australian, apologies for the backwards (to some people) dates I have placed Smile

I look forward to working with you Ore Monkey, give me a yell in-game if you are available and we can go into more detail if you like.

Cheers

Bump for the service guys. We have now gone live, and have increased our research capabilities to ensure we keep up with demand. For anyone who has already read this thread, please have a quick browse through the top few posts as some things have changed. Existing customers with existing blueprints in the labs/research will have the exact same service offered to them upon signup. The structure has slightly changed for new customers and the top posts reflect that.

Hi, I would like more infomation. a Few questions

1) how many pos's are you running.
2) if your only running only 1 pos, how you able to put more than 15 labs on it (as the Caldari Control Tower has room for only 15 m-labs just enought to fit 15 with zero CPU left over)
3) how are you able to put that pos up with so many alts in your corp? after 3 days of them in your corp all the standing for all NPC's go down to the avg of everyones.
4) becouse you have so many alts and wont be able to get your standing up enought to put more pos's up how are you going to grow.
5) you say your trying to cut the Queues but you have a Queues your self? how are you cutting the Queues? So you should say, "faster reserch here" and not "cutting the queues here"

Great Service.

Researched 64 BPO's for me with 9 being priority. Had those 9 bpo's to me 12hrs earlier than anticipated.

Again. Great Service.

Sure. One of my alts was being used as an EIB Bank Teller. Obviously in light of the recent events, he isn't an active bank teller any more. However he still holds approximately 1.2b of EIB float, which will be used to give investors some of their cash back, once the powers at be decide how they plan to do so.
