Corp direction

There are many different ways that a corp can go. It can become a tight-knit roaming band, a travelling group of mercenaries, or a single system police force. It can be a disparate, loosely connected group of jobbing industrialists. It can stretch several constellations and regions or it can spend its whole time around a single gate.

I have some very specific ideas about how I want this corp to develop. I would like to know what you want. Mail me ingame or talk to me on channel PVE.

Safe and fast travelling in Eve:

If you don't want to be popped on your way anywhere make sure your route doesn't enter low security space. Click on map, click the autopilot tab, and click 'Prefer Safer'.

DONT use autopilot!
Q: "you cant expect me to do it manually right?"
A: "actually yes, and its rather simple"

1) First step is to set your destination (you'll also need to be in space (undocked))
next open your overview settings (its the right facing triangle, next to the words "OVERVIEW" funnily enough on your overview)
2) Click deselect all (down the bottom)
3) Open "Celestial" then scroll down to find "Stargate" (click the checkbox so its "ticked")
4) Close the window, and once again click the right facing triangle, and click "Save current config as..." and call it "Nav". You can set this up in a second tab.
Now if you have a destination set you will notice a yellow stargate in your overview
right click it
5) Click "Warp to within 0m"
Voila! you warp directly within jump range. Just saved you about a minute per jump.


We often allow salvagers to pick the bones of our missions if we aren't going to do it ourselves; after all, with the profession of probing and salvaging becoming more common we would rather it at least went to our friends.

In general our rules for team mission running are as follows; If you are running a mission with someone, the mission owner decides who gets to salvage the mission. If you are salvaging a mission for someone the loot is yours, however if you are asked to save anything specific please do so. This, however will not be enforced by the corp, it is an agreement between players.

If you are in the corp and you collect any junk mods please dont reprocess them yourself, save them or put them into corp hangar for reprocessing by a specialist. They will be turned into ammo for corp use. Rigs and ships can also be manufactured at cost for our friends from salvage and loot with high efficiency, ask me for details ingame.

If you are a new player and want to start salvaging the easiest and cheapest way is with a destroyer. Put up to 5 tractors and at least 3 salvagers in high (the exact mix you can fit will depend on your skills), a microwarp drive or afterburner and some capacitor rechargers in mid, and cargo expanders in low.

Have fun and go make yourself some ISK!

Oops. But Yay.

It has been soooooo long since I updated this, Im quite embarassed. Just noticed that it now works in the ingame browser though so I feel I ought to say hello. However the corp is still open, I've been away and come back, Drunkminer is still drunk and Yoshi has abandoned us. I gave 0.0 a try but didn't like it, though I am still open to moving back at some point in the future for the right corpies.

We are open to all players if you want though we mostly fly solo and help out younger players when they need it; the only reason to join really is if you want the security of an alliance but still want to live tax free, although we plan to start running L5 missions in a fleet as soon as they become economically worthwhile. I also have perfect production efficiency and will build ships for free for corp members, and we have a large stock of free missiles. If you just need help in a mission come to the PVE channel: click on channels and mailing lists to your left, click join and type PVE and enter. Simple as that.

Public Venture Enterprises FAQ:

Why Is The Site So Hard To Read?: PVE-Log is optimised for the Eve-Online Ingame Browser. Try Reading ingame; if you were given a link just click it instead of using copy-paste.

What is PVE?: Public Venture Enterprises was formed for players of Eve who want to mission with the help, support and friendship of other like-minded players. PVE is about co-operative play. PVE is also the title of a chat channel where you can join the weekly missioning event even if you are not in PVE corp. PVE also happens to stand for Player Versus Environment, the opposite of PVP (Player Versus Player).

You are called PVE, does that mean you don't PVP?:

We do not pirate but we will fight in defence of our members, and we occasionally hunt pirates.

Where can I find you?: We have many offices, join us ingame to be informed of your nearest office at Channels & Mailing lists -> Channels -> Join -> PVE -> OK
