I bought a freighter so I could haul my own minerals quicker :)

What was your biggest milestone as a industrialist?

Bought? A real industrialist would have built his own. Laughing

I bought mine too. Too much time to build!

My milestone will be when I get a jump freighter. Been saving forever for one but I keep buying other ships ><

Earlier milestones I think was when I could do T2 and T3.

I guess my biggest milestones have been, in timeline order:

1. Orca (still have it)
2. Charon
3. Charon #2 (after this the others weren't milestones)
4. Rorqual (built it, self-destructed in a C2, replaced by #2 in a C5)
5. My first bond for 10 billion ISK Shocked

Other notable ones: my first Drake and first Raven, which I built.

With the bond I've never had so much invested in manufacturing before.

Sure is keeping me busy. Bond closes August 1st so July is gonna be an even busier month for me!

My own milestone was... Wink

The creation of 5 other alts spread over 3 accounts to counter the bottle neck in bpc production and T2 manufactorying which may result in the 4th account to counter the previous counter...

Where do you draw the line Exclamation or is that called expansion ExclamationExclamationExclamation

Poducing my first JF inc all parts, which included the freighter

My milestones I've reached so far:
- 1B isk in my wallet. ( for about 5 minutes.. then it went into investments )
- 1B isk monthly income
- My Hulk and Mack
- My Orca
- My Blockade runner
- Starting up my T2 production lines, which I'm still expanding now into more products ( and finding that I don't have enough productin slots, so working on that )
- My first POS operations.

Not yet achieved but approaching fast:
- Building my first freighter
- Flying a freighter to move my stuff ( this one will be achieved as soon as I've built one, can fly it now already )
- Capital Production
- Clearing 2B a month in profit. ( this is taking a lot more work than my first 1B month milestone )
- Jump Freighter( this will take a while, as my alt who will be flying it has a lot of other skills train up first, and also the cash will be tight )

My pos, since it really opened up invention and manufacturing for me.

Soon to be, First orca >:D

An intelligent industrialist would have bought it, except if he was mass-producing them.

Hmm, my milestones:

1. Production Efficiency V
2. Indy V/Blockade Runner
3. POS
4. Hulk

Next will be an Orca probably, then maybe a freighter if I need :)

Hmm, there were a few, but the first really noticable one was when I got the Crane and could warp cloaked. Makes hauling high value, even in high sec, a lot less nerve wracking.

1. First Freighter.
2. Max Skilled for Hulk and Orca.
3. Training all invention skills to at least IV, star ship invention skills to V.
4. Finding just one char having skills to access all 11 invention slots wasn't enough, and training alts to make more available.

Posted - 2011.06.20 11:18:00 - [15]

My 1st milestone was 10b income per month.
Will be nice when I reach 20b profit per month with my industrial income...

My milestones were :

1. mined and built a freighter
2. built a jump freighter from #1
2.1 built another freighter
3. mined and built a rorqual
4. mined and built a carrier
5. invention skills mostly to 4
6. can build basically everything t2 and t1 except for titan

still on the todo list :

1. build a dread
2. build a super carrier

but basically my indy char has achieved all that's needed and I'm looking for new areas as I'm basically fed up with production and very low margins.
Example : last t2 I built were 7 broadsword. the t2 materials cost about 164m, the t1 hull about 4m, the broadsword sells in Jita at 185m, that leaves 17m for invention costs and production and profit Rolling Eyes
production is about 4-5d for a ship (longer if you make 3-4 or all 7 in one batch)

I know, there are surely much better items to produce, but honestly I don't have the time anymore to check markets for every T2 with sale stats etc.
I moved to a WH and make a ****load of money with out that much hassle.
Last night I ran anomalies for 1 hour and hit about 150m. pure profit :)

my milestone was today, when i finished programming an application, that helps me manage profit from Manufactoring extremely easily and effectively :)

now i know exactly what to manufacture and when to buy minerals for it :)

Being able to use a hulk effectively.Very Happy

Aside from one T1 frigate, I still haven't flown a ship that I've built for myself - I know it's the worst kind of MIMAF, but I want to be self-sufficient more than I want to be rich.

Lol.. I had a Dramiel 2 weeks into the game as a total noobie.. Just after I learned how to fly a Scythe. I go out on my level 2 mining mission, feeling proud that I can now handle the rats with my mining ship(previously, when rats showed up while I was mining in my BURST, I'd have to get my rifter or thrasher to deal with them).

3 minutes into the mission, rats show up.. and I'm all oohh goody.. time to try out these missile launchers! Then I notice it's a faction spawn, with 4 friends.. a 'big' fight later, my scythe is in structure, but I've killed them all. I go to the faction wreck to pick up the loot, expecting faction ammo.. and I find a Dramiel BPC.

So overjoyed, I decided to skill up and learn how to fly it.. I still have that Dramiel today, and I love flying it, even if I don't fly it as often as I used to. Nowadays, I use it to do a 1/10 plex nearby, or every few months go to arnon to do the epic arc mission in it.

Industrial milestones...

1. Start hauling corp and get paid real wages for moving mass freight (check)
2. Get a masty (triple check)
3. Successfully research, bpc invent, and build t2 ships (grigate and cruiser) (lots of checks)
4. Get freighter and haul full load through low sec (scary check)
5. Get orca and run mining ops (Half check)
6. Get Rorqual with full compressor rigs (no check)
7. Run safe space POS as public Labs for minmatar space (no check but getting there)

So still have some work to do

Realising that I would be better served to park a trading alt in Jita and use courier contracts to get my mats sent to the point of manufacture than to fly a freighter myself.

Getting irritated at the thoughtlessness of a pilot who took some of my courier contracts and got themselves suicide ganked. I mean, yes, I made a profit on the collateral, but that's not the point. Really, how hard can it be to not get blown up going through Uedama?

bought a hulk for 50m:)
