The Alpha Experiment 3 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 5
I have set up an alpha clone to be used as a trader using the autotrader.

As per Slavs recommendation the minimum funds to start trading is 200 000 000 ISK, I will start using a Courier to gain the required funds to start trading.

The character is a Caldari.

To have some initial funding I did all the career agents, which left me with some ships including a badger, some Cargohold Expanders I and a budget of around 8 000 000 ISK.

During the time I did the agent missions I leveled some skills to their alpha maximum, also I bought ome skills which I thought could be usefull and which I could afford with my fundings.

Skill levels reached so far, some of them are not important for my goal, but leveld them just because I had some time, only mentioning here the skills I think to be important

Caldari Industrial 1 (cargo and inertia bonus for the Badger)
Spaceship Commad 3 (agility)

Evasive Maneuvering 3 (acceleration and agility)
Navigation 3, training to 4 atm (sub warp speed)

Social 2, trainig to 3, giving access to to Connections and Distribution Connections
Connections, will be trained to 2 after Social 3 is reached
Distribution Connects will be trained to 2 as soon as I can afford the skill book (it is around 24 000 000 ISK or 10 000 LP + 12 000 000 ISK)

Corporation Management 1 (to be able to start a 1 man corporation as soon as I can afford it)

Broker Relations 2
Trade 3

In the Industry Mission 8 I was led to an asteroid belt with Kernite. I decided to mine there a full Venture ore hold and to sell it on the market to pop up a bit my funds.

Sold the Kernite in the Mission Station and got 883 000 ISK (about 10% of the wallet).

Mission 9 is a lengthy industry job, per recommendation of Slav setting up the Miner Bot with a trial license. Doing the first run…

All 5 career mission threads are now finished.
Day 0: ~9.000.000 ISK

Will start now the Miner with trial license and let it run over night. The venture is equipped with 2 Mining Lasers I, a Surface Scanner, Mining Laser Upgrade I. It has 2 drones equipped.

I have set up a travel route to some neighboring systems, on of it security status 0.7, hopeing to find some better ores there.

Mining Skills are: Mining 3, Mining Upgrdes 2 training to 3 (still 3h to go)

Scanner is not required for mining lasers. They have short duration time to care about. Switch you lasers to 2xEP-S Gaussian Scoped Mining Laser. As soon as you have 200 mils, you can start autotrader

Day 1 Morning

EVE client was stopped, Bot was stopped, Venture was in space in the 0.7 system, drones still in their dock, ore bay was empty.

Ore is stored in 2 other systems. I am going to collect the ore. Will also follow Slavs recommendation and equip the EP-S Gaussian lasers.

I have set the belt timeout to 1800 seconds, I am a bit paranoid and I want to switch belts rather quickly, best to go to a new system after each full ore hold.

A side note - after the career missions and having now completed Connections 1, my effective standing to Caldari State is 1.10 (from 0.73)

I decided to switch from the miner trial license to a 30 day license, which i had here unused.
The trial license seems to stop after about 2 hours, as I want to grind a bit more faster I will use a bought license.

At the end of the day i will buy 4 x Cargohold Extender II for my Badger and, if affordable also Cargohold rigs, to have it more easy to transport all the ore back to the home station.
