My own plans are somewhat vague. I really don't know what I am going to do with wormholes until I set up in there. This rambling post reflects my confusion.
- Planetary interaction? Definitely.
- NPC's sites? probably.
- Maybe mining just to have a look.
- Explore adjacent wormholes? Most likely.
- Die to due unwanted visitors? almost certainly.
- Attack transient neighbours? probably not.
- Player owned stations; most likely : costing about 200-400M each per month depending on size; for fuel blocks; either purchased outright or as forgone income. (I won't use a small as primary POS).
Everything I have read says that wormholes are not a single person endeavour. A C2 wormhole is enough to keep a few people busy, but how many? Conflict arises when there are insufficient activities to keep everyone acceptably busy and in ISK
I have far more industrial skills than I have combat skills. Some combat skills will be needed to take advantage of the sleeper sites. Some combat skills will eventually be required for defense. So, I am industrial in nature; I like building games. Pew Pew is something that comes second for me. I however can use pew pew players.
I have received an application from a pew pew'er. Going from little more than a name I can tell a bit about you. Specifically - are you the type to pew pew or not. Do you target industrialists? others that PVP? pods? While there is justification in everything; someone who has pew pewed before will want to pew pew again. I don't need to find more people who will pew pew at me, as I already know where to find them.
A good thing about pew pew space is that it is constantly changing. PVP'ers will have access to a constantly changing lowsec environment. PVE'ers will have spawning sites both locally and in neighbouring C2's. For hisec or lowsec I would recommend someone with pew pew experience look elsewhere; But for wormhole space? I think we can keep them busy.
I found this guide http://www.fiercewebs.com/arcdragon/EverythingWormhole.pdf very useful. I am proposing different operating procedures, and while not entirely agreeing with a document designed for life in a larger corp in a C5, it still was a useful read.
But to that player who contacted me; please see the 'Foo Holdings' tab at the top of this blog, I will want to run some background checks, and the instructions are listed. My background is very visible, not just on this blog but on my other game blog too.
