Everyone will not blow up your stuff.

You can look up a good Null corp and see if you can join. Many of them are pretty hands off save for some ops and or other needed home defense stuff. You might have to pay a monthly fee for SOV upkeep but in many ways Null mining is safer and more profitable than any other mining. Per your orignal question many nullsec corps will allow you to set up a pos in their space as long as your are a member of the corp and maintain it.

Nullsec is not very Solo friendly when it comes to industry.



I'll just rinse and repeat (after personal experience a couple of times):

The Nullbears will just pop you every chance in Null.........and don't try renting....once you get down there, they will blow all your stuff up. GUARANTEED. Trust nobody down there for even a second.


A few comparisions between Null and Hisec:

In Null if anyone non friendly pops into your system you know it immediately and can POS up.
In Highsec anyone can wander up to you and shoot you in the face with you none the wiser until you are dead.
In Null you can make pretty damn good ISK mining.
In Highsec it takes way too much work.
In Null PI is worth it.
In High it is not and you cannot remove and replace Customs offices.
In Null (and low) exploration is worth something.
In Highsec not so much.
In Null your friends can have your back in Highsec all they can do is watch you evaporate and then maybe act.
In Null except for the occasional Blue Tackler you know who is going to blow up your stuff in High, we'll I think I already covered that.

I must assume Krixtal that you had the bad luck of running into **** corps more than once which I will admit can happen however that does not make that conduct true for all Null Corps. To the OP I would explore specificly what you want to accomplish in Null and then find a Corp/Alliance that can help you do it.

Sorry. I've yet to encounter a player with a good experience with this.

Not read the whole thread so others may have suggested this before.

I think if you want to go out into null and manafacture, diplomacy is your friend.

Why wouldn't a Null sec commander want an industrial contractor on there turf. You get gauranteed custom, if you make what they use, they get an on site supply depot with little security risk (and you POS collateral 'in there hands' security wise).

Put together a proposal and approach a Sov holder of your choice with it, should they say no there's always more fish in the sea.

It might be worth looking into in that way. Not sure though never tried.

Go ahead. See what happens.

You've mistaken me for the OP, or my description of my approach to the problem as intent, sorry

I am new to the industry side of EvE. I was wondering is trying to set up a pos in null sec would be wise,profitable, and worth doing. I have a small corp of all my alts and didn't know of solo mining and manufacturing would be a good step.


Would Setting up a POS for you and your alts in null be a good idea? Not at all. Seriously if someone saw you setting up one they would wait until you completed it and take it over. It wouldn't last 2 weeks.

You would be better off setting up a control tower/manufacturing & labs in a NPC controlled space or joining an existing alliance that has a good hold on the system. The last thing you want to do is worry about getting sovereignty (holding it), paying your monthly fuel costs, monitoring/defending griefers/pirates, etc.

If you want to do industry/manufacturing/mining join a group that all ready has everything above taken care of. Get your own control tower setup and get heavily into research and manufacturing. Even this will have some pretty high costs though too (roughly 200m per month to be in the alliance and 500m+ for fuel, etc).

I would guess that unless you had 20 billion isk, all your research/manufacturing skills (on all your alts) maxed, and had several billion isk worth of BPO's it wouldn't be worth trying. But once you did get it going you would have some pretty fantastic profits. Just remember your monthly maintainability bills will be between 1-2 billion (alliance costs, security, transport, fuel, replacment ships/items, etc, etc)..
