1) General
Before starting to use this tool there are some thing you need to know and do before you get the full use of it. This tool is build for Microsoft Office 2003 and newer, that means that the automatic Skill update and price update might not be working in ex: OpenOffice or older versions of MS Office, in that case you will need to enter the skill manually in the sheet called DATA. Dedafs Industrial tool contains 13 Tools to help you Mine the best Ore/Ice and see what is profitable to build T1/T2/T3 or Capital ships as well as a POS manager tool.

The First thing you need to do is to Import you Characters skills to this tool, you do that in the DATA sheet. To see how, go to page 3 in the section DATA sheet.

Trough out the Sheets in this tool, you will find fields with the colure blue, those are the fields you can modify



Or sometimes green text:

The fields with a purple back ground are locked, it is fields which is auto updated via the DATA sheet, mostly skill.


Backup and Restore

In each of the production sheets in this tool you will find 2 buttons. One called Backup and one called Restore. Clicking the backup will generate a Backup file at the hard drive location you specified in the DATA sheet

Backup files are named like this t1_production_backup.xml t2_production_backup.xml t3_production_backup.xml capital_production_backup.xml rig_production_backup.xml t2_rig_production_backup.xml jump_freighter_backup.xml

NB: This backup file also contains your API and UserID information

Backup function
Before going from an old version of Dedafs Industrial tool to a new, then go trough the production sheets you used and click backup.

Click YES to generate the backup file. NB: Vista and Windows 7 wont let you save files to C:\ So either enter a folder or another drive ex. D:\ 3

Restore function
When opening a new version of Dedafs Industrial tool for the first time, then you want to import all your backup files. Only way to do it is to go to each production sheet and press the Restore buttons.

Before restoring your files, make sure you have specified the right location of your backup files in the DATA sheet.

When the location of the backup files has been set you can now go to each of the production sheet and restore the data.
NB: Remember that the T1 backup file not only contain T1 BluePrint information but also contain your API, UserID and Character name, so to avoid having to enter them manually in each new version of the tool, then go to the T1 Production sheet and restore the T1backup file first, after this you will be able to select the API, UserID and character name via the dropdown menu in each cell.

Go to any of the production sheets and click restore.

Clicking YES will restore the date to the production sheet

NB: You need to do this for each of your production sheets

2) Data Sheet
1) Import of Skill data 2) Import of Price information

Import of Character data

In the Top of the DATA sheet you will find the 3 fields shown in the picture below.

You have 2 ways of getting you skill information in to Dedafs Industrial tool, 1)Automatic or 2)Manual 1) Automatic (only MS office 2003 and Newer) (OpenOffice not supported) Enter your APIKey in cell D3 and UserID in Cell D4, you can find your APIKey and UserID by clicking on this link


You can enter your Character name in Cell D5 or wait till after you click on the button Update Skill Data . If you enter the Character name at the same time as you enter the API and UserID, then all skills and information about that character will be updated immediately upon clicking Update Skill Data .

If you dont enter a Character name in D5 before clicking Update Skill Data, then you will be able to select a characters related to the User ID you entered in CELL D4. You will now have to click Update skill Data again, to import skill information. The reason to do it this way is to make sure you enter the name correctly.

2) Manual (Used for OpenOffice and older versions of MS office) When downloading this Tool for the first time, you will find, that I have pre-entered all the skills needed too use this Tool.

All you need to do here is enter your characters skill lvl in the column called LEVEL NB: do not change the TYPEID number, if you do the Tool will be broken. From here you can also enter you character name and your isk, though they are not mandatory for the sheet to work..

Import of Price information

For importing mineral and material prices you again have 2 options, Automatic and Manually For Mineral/Material you have 4 fields: Own, Sell, Buy and Avg. You can select which region to import price information from.

Own: Is used for those who cant do automatic price update or for those who are building items for corporations using fixed internal corp mineral prices, or for those who dont think the imported prices are correct enough for their region. Sell: is updated during an automatic price update with imported price information from EVE-Central. It is calculated from the SELL order transactions done in Empire regions. (Completed SELL orders) Buy: is updated during an automatic price update with imported price information from EVE-Central. It is calculated from the BUYorder transactions done in Empire regions. (Completed BUY orders) Avg.: is updated during an automatic price update with imported price information from EVE-Central. It is calculated from the average between completed Buy and sell order transactions done in the Empire regions. NB: since the amount of completed sell and buy orders, are not the same, then avg. price sometimes can be very close to either sell or buy price. Not a bug Clicking the update buttons in this tool will only update the price information that are related to the sheet where the button is located, to update everything price and Skills then click the button Update everything in the DATA sheet.

NB: Do NOT update price information every 5min. if you do, then you will be blocked in EVE-centrals firewall and thereby not be able to do price updates again. Ones a day should be enough.

If Ship type is set to Hauler remember to set the cargo hold capacity NB: Payout for Hauler pilots are calculated from a percentage of the m3 you entered here. Ex. 100%*(25000m3/35000m3)= 71% payout

Payout for each player is Calculated from 2 factors. 1. Ship type 2. Time, being in the mining OP

If using a Hauler, this is the m3 you need to get a 100% payout. (Can be modified)

Hulk is EVEs best mining ship so using a hulk will grand you a 100% payout. NB: using ships with less than 3 lasers will get a lower Payout Apoc. with 8 T2 mining lasers only Covetor mines 13% less than a hulk, therefore Yield 57% of a hulk. Using ships with 87% is the max payout you get using a Covetor. Less than 8 lasers, will get less than 57% payout. Ex. 5-lasers: 57%*(5/8)= 35,625% Payout


Payout calculation The Sheet calculates the payout based on 2 factors, 1) Type of ship used during the mining op. 2) the time the pilot spend mining. Ship Type payout Defense Hulk Covetor Mackinaw Retriever Other 8 Other 7 Other 6 Other 5 Skiff Procurer Other 4 Other 3 Other 2 Other 1 Hauler Orca / Rorqual

100% Defending ship will get a 100% payout. Mostly used in 0,0 for tanking belt rats. 100% Hulk is best mining ship in EVE and players will therefore get 100% 86,95 Covetor dose not have the same bonus as the exhumers, and therefore mine 13% less than a Hulk 66,66666667% 57,96666667% 57,61% Other means any none exhumer or barges.1-8 means amount of lasers. 50,40875% 43,2075% 36,00625% 33,33333333% 28,98333333% 28,805% 21,60375% 14,4025% 7,20125% xxx Haulers payout depend on the haulers capacity and the value you selected as being max capacity 70, 80, 90 or 100% The payout for Rorqual depend on the amount of people in fleet. They will only get 100% if there are more than 4 mining ships. Ex: 1miner=70% 2miners=80% 4or more=100%

Mining time payout Hulk1 mines 60min*Hulk bonus 100%= 60min Hulk2 mines 30min*Hulk bonus 100%= 30min Covetor mines 60min*covetor bonus 86,95%= 52,17min Final payout is calculated like this. Total time all miners spend mining is Hulk1 + Hulk2 + Coevtor = 60+30+52,17=142,17min Hulk1 payout of the total mineral mined is (60min/142,17)= 42,2% Hulk2 payout of the total mineral mined is (30min/142,17)= 21,1% Covetor payout of the total mineral mined is (52,17min/142,17)= 36,7%
