Dominix

I purchased a Dominix a few weeks ago before I could fly it. Prices were low so I grabbed it.

Yesterday, I was able to start flying it. The Dominix is a drone boat and a battleship. I didn't buy it for its personal firepower, I got it as a drone boat for logistic support in the level 4 missions that I do with my corp and friends.

Being able to get into a ship and move it around on Eve does not mean that you can fly it or fly it well. A well skilled player in a much smaller ship will destroy a newbie like me in a big ass ship like the Domi. However, I'm not trying to kill other people and I use it for a particular type of group play right now. Therefore I am fine with my choice.

The nullsec players that I met scolded me for rushing. They said I need to stick with frigates and fly them until I can fly them perfectly (meaning tech 2 weapons and tech 3 ships) and then I can move up to the next class.

I can see the point of this opinion. However, I have several different styles of game play. I have my solo play, my play with my friends who are about the same game age as me, my play with my experienced corp mate and my game play in low sec with my pirate. I use different ships for all of these tasks. I am not a bad ass in any of these ships but they all have differences.

So, after I picked and chose and hoped for the best we set out to go and play a little and do some shake downs.

It is a nice ship.

My salvaging abilities as I duel box are getting a bit better. The Noctis is an amazing ship. I am salvaging my level 3's and the level 4's. When I work as a group it is split. When I work alone its all mine. Tasty, tasty salvage has really been doubling and tripling what I bring in. I rarely bring in less then a mill from a mission with a lot of things to shoot.

I also had a container full of salvage I had forgotten about. I got it off of my pirate's level 4's right before I went on vacation. He burns through the missions and I salvage them. It is a lovely combo and it brings me serious cash. He did about 4 or 5 missions that night. I salvaged most of them and wound up with about 27 million. For me, that is good money. Now, when I salvage his level 5 missions I wind up with that much off of one or two. However, those are in low sec and a bit more dangerous of an undertaking.

I do not use my Noctis. I use a Catalyst. It is fast, it is agile, and it is cheap to replace.

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

Your ideal roadmap

To try to be a bit more interesting then blogging yet another daily list of summit meetings, how about a question?

In the producer session, as we try to figure out how to fix and improve our communication with teams and how we figure out who should be gone to for features and changes, we discussed the road map.

We discussed what 'our' ideal roadmap would be. This breaks down into the individual roadmaps for each member of the CSM. After all, we are individiuals and we have different dreams for Eve. We have different goals and features that we want to move forward or go back to.

How close are we to what CCP is looking at and planning? We discussed their safety mesures to weigh the value of features. What will this feature do for Eve? It is not enough to have an ideal road map of things you want. Those things have to have value and that value needs to be enough to dedicate the time to the feature.

Do you have an ideal roadmap? A path for Eve to head in the next year or two once …
