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:
- 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
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:
- Industry Level 5
- Production Efficiency Level 5
- Mechanics Level 5
- Capital Ship Construction Level 1
Step 3 - As we progress further, we can also look at construction of modules for the fit. A typical fit would be:
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.
