Backward PI Calculator

Hi All

My ability to create my own spreadsheet sucks, so I was wondering if there was a PI calculatr that worked backwards.

I know it sounds odd, but lets say I am in high sec and have a factory planet and I am making a P3 Product, say Robotics. But my factory planet makes P1 to P3, so I buy the P1 on market drop it into my storage and collect the Robotics at the other end.

Say robotics is 90k ppu I want to be able to break down the component parts down to T1 level to show what prices I should be paying for the P1, essentially to make sure I can make a profit, obviously it would need to include tax too.

Does anything like this exist?

There are some sheets out there, but people want you to pay for them. I have isk to throw away sometimes, so I did that. The sheet I got is crazy though, WAY more info than just what you're looking for, and frankly way more than I think I need lol. Anyways, it wouldn't be too hard to make the spreadsheet you're looking for I don't think.

I need to figure out the whole crest for prices thing or how to get updated pricing in my spreadsheet. I hear it's not hard lol. If I knew that, I'd draft one up for you.

Cool, thanks James. I used to use a guy that I bought spreadsheets from many moons ago but he stopped doing it (I think he left game). I know there are apps to do PI, but as far as I am aware they dont show info ifyou are just using the planet as a factory planet and importing in.

Try this: (import/export tax but it is in german) or this (in english and has every information about PI)

You can get taxes of 6% instead 10% if you usecutoms code skill, but yes, is possible. i use mainly for factories and some extraction in high volumes of heavy metals for problems of that in my null sec house.
