Ore compression calculator

I’ve updated the compression calculator with a couple of new features, and stomped out a bug.

The bug was it had the wrong volume for some ores. (oops. it was hooked up to an old database.) That’s now sorted, and hooked up to the DB which updates when a new version comes out.

New Features:

Output values: You are told how many of each mineral you should get out in the end.

Ore selection: you can choose between all ores (the default) and highsec ores only.


Are other options for ore selection useful to you? Would you like to be able to specify nullsec only? Lowsec only? Be able to pick and choose, with max limits for certain kinds? So only 15 compressed spod, no arkanor but as much of others you want? Presets are simple from an interface perspective, full customization is somewhat more painful.

The backend, now that I’ve re-familiarized myself with it, is simple enough to update.

As always, the code is on my github respository and is can be freely used. However, it does require an external third-party library, which makes it a bit more painful to install. Especially if you’re on shared hosting (probably impossible then)


Nullsec only, and lowsec/nullsec (for the rig) filter added.

    Is there a reason we can’t set the various skills to zero?

    • Fuzzysteve

      because obviously only bad people who are bad have the skills at zero? (added.)

        On behalf of all the bads, thank you 🙂

    It would be good to have a function to exclude certain ores, or at least set limits on them. I recently used the calculator for a large project and the main ore it said I needed was Omber. There was not enough Omber in Jita at the time. I don’t know if it has just been bought out, so if it’s just not mined much since it’s the lowest value ore. Either way, I couldn’t use the calculator results without the ore available.

    I am a little lost with the calculator I put in just a trit number and used null sec ores and it came back with crockite rather than spod and ark I am confused to way that is?
