Hi everyone. Long time reader, first time poster, etc. etc.

I picked EVE up for about three months in early 2010, had to leave, and am now testing the waters again. I was rather distressed to learn that EVE Metrics had closed its doors - I put their historical data to rather good use earlier, and I'd like to be able to do the same again. Two questions, one idle curiosity, one more relevant:

1) What's the story behind EVE Metrics closing? If I had to guess, I'd say the authors concluded they could make more money selling similar services in private vs. accumulating advertising revenue on the free site, but I'm not sure. Just curious.

2) Is there a replacement? Specifically, is there any way to access historical mean/median prices and trading volume, by good? I need to estimate demand curves to make market-entry and pricing decisions and without EVE Metrics, while I probably can still do so using EVE-Central's order history, it'd be a lot more work.

Thanks in advance for your time.

1) They likely grew tired of it, it grew too demanding, they had alot of costs they claimed with no real way to pay for it except out of their own pockets....that sort of thing. Some good projects have died because there's very few ways to monetize a project like that to help pay for costs.

2) Eve-Central. That's it.

I've got a couple of questions;

1. What was your name before it was changed for you?
2. Do you like your new name?

I assume you're asking me.

1. NAMBLA, I was having some fun after watching the episode of south park on tv that made fun of the RL NAMBLA organization but I guess it was taken too literally and someone petitioned.
2. I wouldn't call it new, it's been this way for several years now. I've pretty much gotten used to how badass it is.

I messed up.. estimated when I should have calculated. I accepted a courier contract and ended up being a few cubic m's short of space for the package. I've re-contracted it to be picked up by someone else but times running out. What happens when the contract time runs out? I'll find out soon enuf but a heads up on info would be helpful.Rolling Eyes

they can fail it or they can let it run longer and you can still turn it in

Hey guys, quick question about Market History.

I'm trading to trade in liquid stocks for quick turnarounds, and was just wondering if market data shows the number of transactions for the region you're in, or the whole universe?

Thanks

Hi,
is there any way to find out if there is actually a Market for items that can only be sold via contracts?
I'm thinking about producing faction ABs but I have no idea if the available sell contracts ever get bought or if they are all fantasy values.
Thanks

Good evening, gentlemens...

Seriously though, I've been monitoring the Planetary P4 commodities of late, and noticed that Nano-factory is selling for a hightenend price (around 720,000). Does anyone know why?

I'm using Jita for comparative figures, and found the other "simple" P4 products (Organic Mortar Applications and Sterile Conduits), to be holding steady at around 550,000- which makes sense when you compare them to the pricing of the "difficult" P4s (Such as Wetware Mainframes) selling at around 950,000. Considering Difficult P4s require twice as much base material to construct compared to the Simple P4s, the pricing seems fairly accurate.

So why are Nano-factories, also a Simple P4, receiving a 50% bump?

Thank you for your brainpower.

P.S. Nano-factory was going for around 300,000 before the PI change. If it was just the patch making it harder to produce, wouldn't this affect the other Simple P4s as well?

Hi.
It may seem a stupid question, but I didn't find the answer in the market section of the wiki so here I go :
Let's say there's 2 buy orders, with the same conditions : same buy price, buy 100 units, minimum 1.
if someone sells 10 units, which order will actually buy it? the oldest order? the one with the least time remaining (the oldest could have been set for 3 months, but a more recent one can have a lifespan of a week)? the one issued nearer? or just simply at random?

The easiest way to do this would be to try to sell a few. I can think of a few other ways to look into it, but I reserve the right to keep that secret a secret YARRRR!!

Your current trade skills do not allow you to sell or buy items that far away from you. This item is in a station 3 Jumps away from you while your skills restrict you to this station.

A courier contract of mine failed!

Now I set the appropriate collateral and whatnot so that is not the issue. I did however, set up about 5-10 contracts and want to figure out what I "lost" in this one so I can replace it.

After a bit of searching all I could figure out was the generic contract details. Is there a way to figure out what contents I put into that contract? How do i do it?

In the event I can't I will keep track via personal spreadsheets. In the event I can I would appreciate any input.

thanks!

I've never found a way. What I do sometimes is put a unique isk-cents on either the reward or the collateral if I'm shipping a number of things at the same time at about the same volume to help keep track.

If you put your goods into containers prior to creating your courier contracts, a caution like the following may show in the relevant log file in your <%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\EVE\logs\Gamelogs> or <%USERPROFILE%\Documents\EVE\logs\Gamelogs> directory:

Originally by: Obfuscated log file
[ 2011.02.14 01:23:45 ] (question) You are entering a non-empty container into this contract. The container and all its items will be entered into the contract.<br><br>

The container <b>Fictional Container</b> contains the following items:<br>

Towel I, Towel II, Toothbrush Fleet Issue, <br><br>

Are you sure you want to continue?

It lists only the verbal key for the typeids and does not show quantities, but that might in some cases be enough information to help remind you.

What is the largest amount of ISK raised from the public by a corporation to date?

"The public", in the form of thousands of depositors, put trillions of ISK into EBANK over a period of roughly two years. When accounts were frozen, a net amount of roughly 2.5 trillion ISK was (notionally) on deposit for account-holders.

Here is another number to blow you mind.. Over the space of EBANK's existence to date. The database has logged Total Deposits at 10,173,252,100,888.40, and Total Withdrawals at 7,456,427,103,408.55.

According to the database EBANK had also processed loans the following values.
Total Lent: 2,493,057,272,546.60
Total Repaid: 2,716,858,526,327.64

I note these values, as "Total Lent" would be included in the "Total Withdrawals" value, as would the "Total Repaid" would be part of the "Total Deposits".

I find it hard to believe that any public entity in the near future will handle the same volume of ISK flow.
