Lets talk about Fullerides for a second.
The recipe is
100 tech + 100 Plat = 200 Platinum Technite per hour.
100 Hydrocarbons + 100 Silicates = 200 Carbon Polymers per hour.
100 Units Carbon Polymers + 100 Units Platinum Technite = 3000 Fullerides per hour.
6000 Fullerides per hour at 720 hours per 30 day cycle is 4320000 units per month.
4320000 X Jita average 2670 = 11534400000 potential isk per month.
Now lets talk raw tech.
You will need 720 hours worth of tech before you eve make the first isk.
720 X 100 = 7200 units of tech. Tech is selling at 124968.00 per unit.
That is an initial investment of 899769600.00 before you make the first isk.
Lets assume you can get the Carbon Polymers from some random ass moon in the middle of no where since you have to have at least 1 tower anyway to react the stuff to Fullerides.
Now to get full potential of your reactions you need 2 Caldari Large towers.
Fuel Costs per tower is lets be nice and say 115375000.00 per month X 2, because you have to have 2 towers to get full production line going.
So we have an investment of 9 billion 232 million in hopes you can earn 11.5 Billion that will give you a net gain of 2.2 Billion per month. Which means you will need 4.5 months to make your initial investment back before you start making profit.
This seem like a hellova lot of work and risk for so little return considering I can run level 4 missions for 1 - 2 days a month and make about the same isk with little to no risk.
What am I missing here?
Not to mention Fullerides is an easy reaction as far as keeping up with it. And how the hell is anyone gonna undock from Jita 4-4 with almost 9 billion in a freighter without someone ganking them, let alone make it home with that freighter remotely safe.
So help me out, how is anyone making any isk with reacting tech? Unless you do it in the NC and deliver it to Jita.
Am I wrong in thinking you can even try to do it?
