What Aura Doesn’t Tell You

Hello everyone - Tauza here with another brief update...

There is a great article over at The Imperium's website that you should take a moment to read called:

I agree with most of what they post there, so much so that I am telling all of you here about it :-)

I don't agree with the playing Eve alone part though. I play Eve with others 50% of the time, the other 50% of the time I am playing solo as "knowledge is power" and a lot of the knowledge in Eve on how to make ISK is very well guarded (as it should be).


The one "secret" that I liked best that they listed was the copying of contracts. That one tip alone can save you HOURS of time each month if you do as many contracts as I do!

My brother and so many other people in Eve have told other player's the Secrets of Eve so much that it has ruined a lot of the created in game mysteries. Things that took me months to figure out, over multiple expansions, multiple story arcs are just given to new players by old players. New players are just not vested in the game like us old players. While I try to help out a lot of the new players with how hard Eve's UI can be and how many features are undocumented I will also try my hardest not to give you any spoilers

Have any other tips or secrets on the UI or eve on general that you would like to share? Please comments them below and remember NO SPOILERS!

Science implants that compliment Engineering Arrays

Hello everyone, Tauza here with another quick update for all of you.

Since the Engineering Arrays have come out a lot of people ask me if I have a clone setup just for doing science related jobs. The quick answer is YES I DO! Here is a quick post on what I use for the jobs that I am doing in my arrays.


The skill requirements are kinda high for these since you will need Cybernetics level 5 to use them. Click on each image to get a larger picture and see all of the information for it. I consider these implants for the person that would consider themselves a long term Eve player.

What do I mean by that? I look at some of the blueprints that I am researching right now that will be taking OVER A YEAR to get more efficient. That is no small commitment in my humble opinion.

Slot 6 (120 mil)

Zainou 'Beancounter' Research RR-605

A neural Interface upgrade that boosts the pilot's research skills.

5% bonus to blueprint manufacturing time research.

Slot 7 (120 mil)

Zainou 'Beancounter' Metallurgy MY-705

A neural Interface upgrade that boosts the pilot's research skills.

5% bonus to material efficiency research speed.

Slot 8 (175 mil)

Zainou 'Beancounter' Science SC-805

A neural Interface upgrade that boosts the pilot's research skills.

5% bonus to blueprint copying speed.

Another note:

After you set your jobs with this clone you should NOT log off in a player made structure. If your not online and the structure gets destroyed the ship and clone you were in WILL BE destroyed. So when you log off keep that in mind. I KNOW I DO!

If you want more details drop me a message in game. If you can think of something that I missed please comment here so we all can learn :-)
