o/

is there an ore compression tool that allows me to priorize ores?

i buy stuff in gallente space where kernite and pyroxeres are not easily available, so i would prefer to use them as little as possible in my production, even if it comes at the cost of leftover minerals from other ores.

cheers,

If you are trying to compress ore by building modules, you are working on outdated information. That practice was nerfed out of existence by the Crius expansion.

The replacement practice is simply to take your ore to a citadel with a refinery service fitted, and turn 100 ore into a compressed ore block by right-click->compress.

How what he's asking for.

He has a goal on minerals, and wants the smallest volume of compressed ore to fill that.

To answer OP's question:

There's no calculator I know of which does this. It's actually a reasonably hard problem

What I'd suggest is:

Set up a google sheet with the solver addon. Regular ore compression is a reworded version of the stigler diet problem. you can find how to do those online. foods become ores, nutrients become minerals.

you can restrict the ores with maximum constraints.

Woo! CSM XI!

well, the only problem is noxcium, which is only found in one highsec ore (pyroxeres)

however, it's not very voluminous and i don't mind getting it directly from jita with the other nullsec minerals.

can you otherwise solve the problem by simply removing kernite and pyroxeres as options for ore? i think i've seen a compression spreadsheet somewhere and i might be able to adjust it.

however, my math skills are non-existent when it comes to more complex problems. i don't really understand if the specific ratios in kernite and pyroxeres are important in solving the problem as a whole.
