Goal kinda technically met

This morning, instead of logging off I got convinced to drag my Myrm through low sec just after downtime by my newest corp mate to do a DED site with him. It was a 4/10. Frankly, I'm still fuzzy about what that means but its something about how hard it is and what may drop inside of it. I'll look it up later when I have more time.

Anyway, I got invited along and with my shield fit battle myrm of non-rawr power helped him work on the site. The site beat us up a bit. Finally, I got some armor repair drones and did the baby logi thing on my corp mate. Of course, he is a -10 so I got GCCed for repping him. Thanks CCP. I can't even rep a flashy red corp mate without getting GCC but I corp members in high sec can kill each other and not get flagged. So sensible.

We wound up with:

Gistum C-Type 10mn afterburner - Sells for 100 mil
Gistum C-Type Kinetic Deflection Amplifier - 10 mil
Gistum A-Type Invulnerability Field - Sells for about 950 mil
8th Tier Overseer's Personal Effects - 2mil

Once the items are sold, I'll have about 500 mil in my pocket.

I also whipped out my low sec Noctis, much to his amusement, and cleaned the field.

As we were playing local spiked up +1 with a cheetah landing and dropping core scanner probes. Because we were in a scannable site, we bailed and switched ships. Then he said hello in German in local so i whipped out google translate and started chatting with him.

He belongs to a high sec corp that does some low sec stuff and he was looking for places to mine. He also sucked at probes. However, he is only two months older then I am. Still, I chatted and he chatted and eventually I got him to offer me the bookmarks for the site that he found. It happened to be the site we were already doing but the goal was to see how stupid he would be.

Chatting with people is fine. However, when two low sec toons, with -sec status (-3 and -10) are encouraging you to go and do a site in the space they are currently active in, it may be a trap. He wound up docking and contracting me the bookmark. My flirt may be at level 5 but my siren call is still around a 3 it seems. With his location in place my corpie bounced over to that station and cloaked to try to snipe him.

However he undocked + cloaked too fast. Damn. It was an interesting little event however. I felt weird about it, but at the same time, I'd never trust people if I was in the situation he was and I'd have been friendly but done everything in my power to avoid them. He did a good job.

I've also been making a deal for an Oneiros. Since my friend builds stuff, lately, once he found out how many loyalty points I have hes been nabbing some stuff off me. He wanted a stabber fleet issue and he also offered to build and sell me an Oneiros. I asked for a price and in the end he decided on a second stabber fleet issue blueprint. That has me spending 40mil isk and 200k in loyalty points for an Oneiros. I'm cool with that. I guess if I was pinching loyalty points it could be better. I don't know, I'm cool with it.

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 …
