Optimizing Invention & Manufacturing Calculator + How to make a bil per week

I found a few errors; Retriever, Procurer, Slasher,Tormentor, Atron BPO materials are way off (showing them more profitable than they should be)

Although very good job; I use your site all the time when I want to do an inventing though because I have not done the extensive amount of work required to make a spreadsheet for them and have limited programming experience.

I have only made a huge spreadsheet for T1 manufacturing and it doesn't include all items that you have. A few features mine does that yours doesn't (but I'd love to see added!) is prices are more accurate (updated more often), my sheet accounts for selling and buying taxes changeable with the players skills and includes an adjustable manufacturing cost per hour (although not the 1k starting a job)

your tables are off, some of the information being used in the invention and manufacture section is based from OLD BPO values, Cruiser hulls, mining barge hulls being some examples, please fix to new manufacture and recycle values.

Price/materials data hasn't been updated in over a month, which is slightly frustrating as the website's code itself is solid.

I really like this site, but pricing data being out of date is severely crippling the usefulness. I was going to write my own version of this, would prefer to work on this author's code base than to start from 0. If you're looking for help integrating automatic price data updates or otherwise are willing to share access to your code, please evemail me in game.

This tool is fantastic and has replaced some of the spreadsheets I have been using.

I have a question - when I am on the manufacturing tab, and I update the BPC me/pe to -4, -4 and then click the "update" button (to reflect most of the t2 bpc's I have invented), it doesn't seem to update the costs/amounts in the output - and it still says ME:0 and PE:0 at the top.

Is this something I am doing wrong, or a fix needed in the code?

Thanks again for providing this for the community.

Really great tool, but I was disappointed to see how long since the prices have been updated. The manufacturing section is largely unreliable for profitability because of this.

Anyway you could setup each of the invention and manuffacturing pages so that people can input how many they want to build and it will adjust to the ammount of minerals it requires to build that many???

the guide is AMAZINGLY helpful, however, if you want it to be PERFECT ,IMO, it would really be better with that.

This guide is all about PPH (profit per hour, or how to optimize production slots)

My goal is to optimize my PPHIDSIACF : Profit Per Hour I Don't Spend In A Clickfest : I usually set up my production lines once per month, and do something else more fun in game. So my PPH is mean, around 350k.

Setting up invention/copy/production job continuously and repeatedly is WORK not play -> boring stuff

Can we just let this thread die? Clearly it doesnt work properly anymore and Eve ISK Per Hour is by far superior for the task. Plus supported by the developer on a regular basis.

Seems like a great little tool.

Is there any way you can add market data for different regions?
