The most versatile manufacturing planner

New version is here with the first set of industry features – manufacturing analysis/planning. Before getting into the details, here’s the full list of changes:

  • [new] Manufacturing analysis tab
  • [new] option to turn off Breakpad integration when building from source
  • [new] importing wallet journal/transactions via ESI
  • [fixed] potential crash when deleting market orders
  • [fixed] opening main window on incorrect screen
  • [fixed] crash in Market Analysis graphs when Eve doesn’t send any item history
  • [fixed] infinite token refresh loop for ESI
  • [fixed] station select button not always properly filling initial station
  • [fixed] creating absurd numbers of ESI threads
  • [fixed] double changed message when selecting favorite location in Market Analysis
  • [fixed] rare crash after fetching ESI token for unknown character
  • [changed] improved whole market import speed

Manufacturing Analysis

This tab allows you to plan manufacturing operations with various setups to maximize profit. Despite looking complicated, the usage is pretty simple:

  1. Choose your source regions/station. This will be used to fetch prices for buying source components.
  2. Choose your manufacturing station. This will make Evernus use system cost index to more accurately predict manufacturing costs. You can leave this blank, but your costs will be skewed, potentially by a large amount.
  3. Choose your destination regions/station. This will be used to fetch prices for selling manufactured goods.
  4. Choose your source/destination price types. As in the Market Analysis, this allows you to specify if you want to buy/sell stuff from/to buy or sell orders. Evernus takes all taxes into account when calculating profit and tries to simulate buying/selling from/to existing imported orders. If your setup requires more materials than available, or you wish to sell more volume than existing orders allow, you will see warning icons for given item types.
  5. Set your manufacturing facility information: type, size, security status, rigs and tax. All of these impact manufacturing costs.
  6. Select desired output types. You can also import your current blueprints and have Evernus prepare the whole setup with them (note: with large amounts of blueprints it might take a long time).
  7. As soon as you do that, the main view will be populated with full production chains.
  8. Import data for current setup. This will import all the orders and cost indexes to correctly compute your data.
  9. You can quickly see what you need to manufacture your output. All required quantities are on the right of every item box; all related info is inside. Each item type can have its source, ME and TE changed, which will update all required component quantities, costs and profit in real time.

    Note: when taking assets and then manufacturing, the required quantity is rounded to what will actually be produced. So if your current assets cannot cover a single run, there will not be any difference than simply manufacturing. When not manufacturing, required component quantities are always 0.
  10. For detailed information, you can always switch views to a compact tree of the whole setup.

On the bottom right you can see a quick summary of all costs/profits. Each box also lists detailed information for given item in given production chain. When you’re satisfied with your setup, you can create a bill of materials using the button on the top.

There are still a few things which are planned for this tab, e.g. corporation support etc. All of this and further industry tabs will arrive in the future.
