Hello,
I started EVE 3 days ago, and I am learning a lot through advanced carrer tutorials.
So far, I've finished military, and exploring missions and I really like exploring missions so I am thinking to go this route.
Anyway, while I was doing missions, I bought an item that located 7 jumps away. I managed to get there and docked my ship to the station.
Now what? How can I get the item that I bought? I checked the item cargo, it wasn't there, I don't know whereelese I can check.
Can you guys tell me how to get the item that I purchased?

One more questions is,
since I enjoyed exploring missions, I want to focus on the carrer.
I am a Minmatar, and what kind of ship do I have to use for exploring carrer?
I am really interested in interceptor, but I don't think this is the best ship for exploring.
If anyone can give me some advice on exploring for ships, skills, and etc...that would be great.

Thank you.

The stuff you bought is in the Items hangar. If not, make sure you are in the correct station. You can use [Assets] to find where your stuff is.

If you are in a corp and can purchase on behalf of your corp, check Deliveries (bottom right corner of station services window).

Read the bonuses of each frigate, and find out which one gives bonus to probes.

Thank you for the reply.
I guess I was in a wrong station...I thought I was in the right station, but I guess I was wrong.
I will make sure using [assets]. I didn't know I can find stuff by using [assets]
I will also make sure I get a ship that has bonuses to probes.

PS: The avatra is my old one.

When you enter station, there are two "buttons" that appear at the bottom of your toolbar on the left. One is "Ships" the other one is "Items." To throw a module or weapon in a ship's cargo simply open both windows and drag and drop.
The same goes for fitting modules. Open your "Fittings" window (in station), open your cargo/item window, and drag and drop into the appropriate slot (be mindful of how much CPU/Powergrid (the blue and red bars on the bottom of the fittings window) the modules takes up). If you don't have enough, the module will never turn on.

With reference to certain ships you are looking at:

Interceptors: Some of the fastest ships in game, also some of the most fragile. They can make for very nice scouting ships under the right conditions. As far as using it for exploring... you COULD use it in that fashion... but I wouldn't until you get some experience under your belt.
No, instead I'd recommend the Covert-Ops ship class. They are specialized in scouting/probing/exploring, they can cloak (giving you some leeway in where you can and cannot go), and they're relatively "cheap." The next step up from those are Force Recon ships.

Carriers: If you REALLY want to fly one of these ships then you need to start laying out your training plan and figure out how to make enough ISK to afford one. Now, I'm not really trying to discourage you... but I feel that you must know what you're getting into with reference to capital ships.
First off, even FOCUSED training for a carrier can take upwards of several months just to get all the "required" and "support" skills to a decent level. And costs for one can climb upwards of 2 billion ISK if you factor in the ship hull, the recommended fittings, and the skill books.
There are also some drawbacks to using Carriers as well. They are limited to low and null sec (0.4 - 0.0), cannot use stargates (they have to use Cynosaural Fields to get around), and require a fleet to support them (they are NOT solowtfpwnmobiles).

Thank you for the detail info.
After I did some research, I was kind of interested in interceptor to explor unknown area because it's fast.
I like the idea that I can run away fast, if I have good skills and modules. I will also will get Covert Ops ship, since it's good ship for exploring.
Wow so many things to learn and do!! I like it. I didn't know carriers will cost that much money and time.
I am not interested in big ships for now....I am more into small and fast ships :)

Look in your Wallet under Transactions. This will show you every thing you bought. Your Journal will show all the payments made.

Once you get into a system you have bought something in, you can go to Wallet/Transactions, find the thing you bought, then right click on it - select Location - then select Dock - and this will cause you to dock at the right station.

Don't feel bad. This has happened to all of us. Lots of systems have more than one station belonging to the same corporation so it can get a little confusing.
