    Default Orca Construction Project - Status Thread

    All,

    PCGE's next project after completing the Drake Army hulls is to construct one or more Orca's to come along and support the mining ops.

    Let's use this thread as a repository (suppository?) to keep the comms going on the Orca construction Project.

    To complete one Orca hull, we need the following components:[LIST][*]Capital Capacitor Battery x9[*]Capital Cargo Bay x37[*]Capital Computer System x7[*]Capital Construction Parts x15[*]Capital Corporate Hangar Bay x4[*]Capital Sensor Cluster x4[*]Capital Ship Maintenance Bay x7[/LIST]
    Each of these are most cheaply bought as BPCs on the contracts market in Jita or Dodixie.

    Each of these items also takes around 3 hours to manufacture per item, so there is a significant amount of time required in manufacturing the components.

    Step 1 - We need BPCs for each of the above with sufficient runs remaining to cover these requirements.

    Step 2 - We then need a single run Orca BPC to complete the final manufacture.

    All this manufacturing can be done in High Sec, suggest Stacmon VII - Moon 1 - Impro factory due to having access to Corp hangars and plenty of free manufacturing slots.

    To manufacture any of these components, you need the following skills:[LIST][*]Industry Level 5[*]Production Efficiency Level 5[*]Mechanics Level 5[*]Capital Ship Construction Level 1[/LIST]
    Step 3 - As we progress further, we can also look at construction of modules for the fit. A typical fit would be:

    [url]http://eve.battleclinic.com/loadout/15246-ORCA-ultimate-hauler.html[/url]

    If you're interested in helping out, we have plenty of materials to start. We've also got into a nice rhythm of weekly mining ops to keep those materials topped up.
    Please sign up to this thread and use it to keep everyone appraised of progress.

    Thanks,

    Core

    Thanks for the comprehensive Orca starter posrt Core.
    I am signing in for whatever work is required. I am looking forward to see an Corp Orca leaving space dock.

    Cheers,

    I've got us started with some BPCs i had.

    Capital Cargo Bay x37 - got enough for 14
    Capital Computer System x7 - got 8
    Capital Construction Parts x15 - got 15
    Capital Corporate Hangar Bay x4 - got 4

    I have started some of these in Stac and will do more once i have some more open slots.

    After a quick look at our mineral reserve we will be short of Megacyte but i will work this out properly later.

    Thanks
    Soth

    Thanks Soth - did you start in the Stac 7 Impro Factory? A though comes to mind - each one of those things you're building will come out at 10Km3, so there will be a significant amount of hauling required from other stations.

    For those that don't hold access to corp hangars (most of the corp), please put in a work package request here and I will contract you the BPC together with the necessary minerals.

    That will also help us keep track of who's doing what.

    Regarding the Megacyte, I'll do a supply run to Jita later with 20Km3 of Tritanium and go sell it off against some Megacyte.

    There is another place we all know and love that has a ready supply of Arkonor to harvest Meagcyte at the moment but I don't think we have time to organise another Corp mining op tonight - unless anyone wants to step up?

    I need to do family time tonight so I can pay RvB Ganked tomorrow. Look out for a post about that shortly.

    Thanks,

    Core

    We have in Stacmon HQ CEO hangar:

    25 Capital Construction BPCs
    16 Capital Cargo Bay BPCs: 5 BPCs delivered to Ichigo for production
    22 Capital Propulsion BPCs
    All are 5 run copies.

    Cheers,

    Nice one Sam. Seems like there's no stopping us now :-)

    Cheers Ahlrada - I'll try and join you when I get home from work later and we can have a bit of an impromptu mining op. I'll be home after 8pm some time.

    Just make sure you take anything you mine today for yourself and we'll draw a boundary around anything we do tonight as a Corp op and all proceeds go to the Corp. Keeps it nice and clean.

    Appreciate all your help with the mining, I know you're a massive contributor by solid attendance and sheer volume of ore produced.

    Hi,

    Done the calculations and we have more than enough minerals to make the orca after i moved some from HQ. That includes the megacyte i thought we would run out of earlier.
    We should also have enough for a second orca if that is what is decided.

    Thanks
    Soth

    After what i have done/doing we still need BPCs for

    Capital Capacitor Battery x9
    Capital Sensor Cluster x4
    Capital Ship Maintenance Bay x7

    And one for the Orca itself.

    Thanks
    Soth
