A newcomer's start to PI

I am very interested in finding out your opinions on the first moves one should make when it comes to PI. Assume all skills are appropriately trained.

How would you start? Do you use any specific tools for planning or monitoring? What advice would you give to a PI newcomer?
I am the shadow. I am the darkness. I am the fear, the fate and the forgotten.

Re: A newcomer's start to PI

The Eve Uni class really helped me get going. I read all the wiki's but it was a little overwhelming. The class had a practical exercises at the end which was really helpful. PI has a some required UI clicking and learning the sequence is key. Don't know when the next class is schedule and it has been a while.

The next thing is to plan out what you want to build. My suggestion is start with a target P2 material and find a planet that can support a single planet production chain. The uni wiki planet guide gives you which planet types support what materials. https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Planets Once you have P2 down, try making a P3 material.

High sec is OK to learn but yields are lower + taxes are higher and recommendation in class was to find places in Null/Lowsec. I have PI set up around LSC Eugales which had a great starter support in stock (Command facilties/ships).
LSC even has a nice PI getting started forum post. https://forum.eveuniversity.org/viewtopic.php?f=214&t=115694

Without the class, look at the recommended Youtube video. Others are available if you look around.

Re: A newcomer's start to PI

Coolio’s advice is all food. Follow it.

In addition -
Go experiment.

Find a planet, throw a colony down, and get first hand experience with what the system is actually like. Play with routing products, storage, customs offices, etc. get used to the interface.

I read all the class content, read the tutorials - and still made some silly mistakes at first. Make those mistakes, before you throw fully built level 5 colonies on multiple planets.

Re: A newcomer's start to PI

I started writing a response then it got out of hand.

I will say that planning I use http://eve-pi.com/#/ and https://www.adam4eve.eu/pi_chain.php and monitoring I just log in every day, but you can turn on planet monitoring in EVEMon if needed.
