Reclaim my game

After another epic fail attempt at missing, I raged about how much I suck and how frustrating it is. On calming down, I decided that my problem is that I am still trying to play like I was told I should be able to play by someone with a play style that does not work for me.

This is my Myrm in all sorts of serious structure damage. My shields and armor regened while I was warping away. Everything was nicely red when I left.



Therefore, I will try to complete the mission I mistakenly accepted. After that, I am done running security missions unless I am part of a fleet. Maybe next year when I have time to focus on some combat abilities.
Once I have my Viator in hand, I will accept some contracts and see how that goes. I always liked the idea of transporting goods. Hopefully I don't lose a ton of money at it. I've read up on the scams and such and I plan to stick to moving peoples crap through high sec and maybe low but I don't see myself venturing into null for that type of thing. There is way to much to learn about null still, and frankly I just don't find it appealing right now.

So, reinvigorated and avoiding working at work, I spent some time looking at how long it will take me to turn into a decent logistics character. The end total is about, the start of May.

Cruisers V alone is going to take 20 days. I have up to cruisers 4. Then Logistics 5 will take 31 days to train from 1-5. There are two other skills I have to take to 5. One will take 4 days and the other 9. So, those two skills will land me right at the start of may. Plus, I'll need to finish targeting to five, multitasking to five, and finish some of my basic skills up to 5 as well.

So, by may, I'll be a functional logistics pilot. I'm hoping that achieving one of my goals that way will help me shed the negative words that are hanging from me and dragging down my playing. Then, in six months or maybe we'll be reasonable and say 12 months, I'll be posting about how amazing I am. I doubt it, but after a bunch of down days I really do hope so. I'm totally addicted to the freaking game. I also don't want to keep seeing the learning curve image. I know that people find it fascinating but, I'm tired of it.
Plus, the logi path is right on par with the carrier path.

Then I looked up the price of the logistics skill book. It is 34 mil. Right on par with transport ships which is also 34 mil. It isn't that I can't afford them its that I'm an isk whore and hate spending it. Of course, I stupidly wrote the previous part of this paragraph and then looked up the carrier skill book.



Since I hate myself I looked up the ship cost as well.



So, we have some more isk to make.

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

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. …

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …
