My biggest personal need is to set prices for our in-wormhole PI buying program.
Google Docs spreadsheets have been upgraded lately, and importxml, which is the basis of how I have been pulling prices from eve-central is broken. So my old PI spreadsheet, as well as the one Wyke Mossari are now both also broken.
However Steve Ronuken came to the rescue with some google docs scripts. I have tweaked them to my desires and now have my new version.
Not only can I import data from Eve Central again, it is much faster, and I can now combine my buy and sell spreadsheets.
The spreadsheet is at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1lXM8PqU0Tn4EJJ2xRuI7uo55IrZ7MKWJidK9T_bA9L4/edit?usp=sharing
You are welcome to make your own copy and tweak.
The first 'Main' tab lists the PI products, what level they are, and max buy/min sell prices from Eve Central for several systems. It also includes a few other items for POS fuel and WH gas clouds.
Columns P and Q have the average prices from Jita, Amarr, Dodixie and Hek.
If you make your own copy, you can change the system names in row 2 and everything else will work.
Make Import Tab
|Make Import Tab
This tab assumes you have one PI item being manufactured, on planet and you are looking for something to pair it with. The Earnings% column is a quick guide, colour coded. Red is a loss; white, yellow, green in that order show what is worth making. If you are color blind you are welcome to just use % values (or make a copy and colour it to your liking)
All values try to take into account the effects of import and export taxes, assuming you are making the value of 'Manufacture 1' on planet.
The tax rate by default is 4%, which is the standard in Foo corps.
This tab assumes you have a pure factory planet, importing everything. This also uses the tax rate from the Make Import Tab.
SelectedTypes TabThis contains the Eve TypeId's, item names and a grouping code. The TypeId's can be determined from various sources.
If you make a copy of the spreadsheet and change a TypeId then it will be reflected on the main tab. At the moment the Items are hard coded.
If you have a specific item you want to find the type id, look for it's price on eve-central. Eg search for Tritanium on there, and you will get https://eve-central.com/home/quicklook.html?typeid=34 as the URL. This URL tells you that the typeid for Tritanium is 34
Various websites contain the static data from eve, including http://eve-files.com/chribba/typeid.txt
Buying TabThis tab is what I use to run my wormhole buying program. It will occasionally (often?) be filtered to the products that I have most recently purchased from someone.
Credits and License tab
This tab is where I have various credits to where I have used other people's work.
Caveat EmptorI have taken some care, but take no responsibility for any ISK you may earn or lose as a result of using this spreadsheet
PS. Steve has also set up his own version of the PI manufacture calculator at https://www.fuzzwork.co.uk/pi/
PPS. To see the scripts used by my spreadsheet above, make a copy of the google doc spreadsheet, and use Tools -> Script Editor.
