    So seeing more and more ppl go and try to skill on ships that fly in space and just repair em for free and skill, and sometimes even pay themselfs to be able to repair....
    I was thinking trying something new, and also doing a small service for the comunity. So I went on a Ship The Starfinder XXIV. I took whit me 100 ped to get RK-5 L and Welding wire. And see what skills i get when i get off the ship rite?
    Sooooo today i will post the result complete result whit all skills in it. It will be a Google document which i will share for evry1. No1 will have writes to modify it. I took me a bit over 20h of play time( big parts i was afk) to do this test.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Auag6WVfMsCCdG9IMUN3WWItbXpPZ1lHODhrdnY1TFE#gid=0

    Its open to any1 to see the result:D only i can edit it for safe keeping.
    On the right side there are the prices i used for calculations...
    At those prices u wont have any profit if u sell the skills and its alot of work for 1 ped 2 ped....
    But if u wane get crafting skills for urself so becouse u are a crafter and wane improve your skills, or u are looking to start crafting i recomend it. I used x5 RK-5 and 254K welding wire total cost 100 ped for them and 2 ped entry fee to get back on my beloved planet Arkadia.
    I was profesion lvl 0 at VSE when i got on Ship and now I have 8.7 Profesion lvl (70%), so i failed my target to get blueprint comprehension unlocked, but i know how MS skilling is, and what u get.
    Any donations are welcome, so that i can get a few % of my costs back. Hope this information is usefull and clears up a few ideas about ms skilling.
    On Request i can add othere statistics to File if needed.

    Have fun all

    PS: Alone we are weak, togethere we are Strong.

    It seems skillgains are still way overpowered on repairing compared to crafting. To get the same amount of engineering you would need to do about 130.000 clicks on basic filters, at a much higher loss.
    So anyone considering a crafting career, start with repairing :)

    Ok, have looked at your numbers and this is GREAT WORK! You have actually showed a profit from the first 5 rk's!
    Have you actually sold these skills at auction. I would like to see what you could get for such small amounts of skill, because I think if you set the MU at the value of your calculations and no BO, you may get far more then these estimated figures from market value!

    pls consider adding an at-a-glance referance(im not copying your stuff, just trying to help)

    Nice work :) Though the material price is somewhat high. On mothership Kronan you could have gotten the rks and wire for 91.89 ped total. (that is 8% or so lower cost)

    Good stuff.

    On the XIV we don't charge ppl to come skill and also provide Welding Wire and RK-5s for skilling (and sometimes RK-20s when we are going to be headed to PvP space) at a nominal cost (pretty much standard MU less a small %).

    Kinda shocked me that ppl actually have to pay to use their peds...seems kinda backwards to me. Kinda like standing in line to spend my money in RL. :cowboy:

    Wait a minute... you went from 0 Profession to 8.7 Profession on 102 PED Cost and did this in HOW long? 20 Hours? At that is BEFORE we calculate the value of those 8.7 Profession Levels of Skills?

    I'm getting 102 PED and doing this regardless of the return, that's one heck of an investment right there.
